For nearly eight years now, I've passed the old restaurant alongside US Highway 65 in Marshall. Restaurant, the sign reads. That's all, an old white and yellow sign by the road that says Restaurant. When it's raining or late at night, I have my eyes on the road. But when I pass in daylight, I almost always make a mental check to try it out.
I finally did.
We were on our way north with little money in our pockets and a lot to do, but hungry. I wanted some comfort food, so we pulled in right past that yellow and white sign and headed on down.
We shared an order of crinkle cut fries, which went with Grav's double cheeseburger. Here were two smashed three ounce patties, glued to a top bun by two slices of American cheese, this hot top on top
I mentioned I saw pies. Well, I asked our waitress about it, and she rattled off a few pies. Raisin pie caught my attention. All these years crisscrossing Arkansas, and I'd come across very few pies that had raisin in them at all (there is the raisin cream pie at Chef's In in Jonesboro, but it's a completely different animal). So I had to try it.
