So Athens is a pretty quaint, sleepy town, but if you walk into the Old West Steak House at lunch time, it is packed with people. You get the feeling that a good number of the people go there every day and a good number of those have been going there every day for years and years (and years). They have a lunch buffett that has a little of everything and it seems that one aspect of it varies by day but another part of it is the smae every day. They asked if I wanted sweet or unsweetened tea which just the question makes meee smile for my love of sweet tea and nostalgia from living in the Carolinas years ago. They also have a pretty impressive dessert spread with the lunch buffett. While I am not a believer that lunch really needs dessert, it is hard to pass up their spread, so I had a little of their banana pudding which was very good. The restaurant felt exactly as it should for a homey lunch restaurant in a small town. The service was very nice and friendly. I definitely enjoyed it and next time I go through Athens, i would love to stop in again.
