Blue and White seemed to me to always be gasoline stations, but this one is in a building that reminds you of the days of Blue and White stations, but here you fill up on food, not fuel.
This restaurant was established in 1924, yes 1924, and moved to this location in 1937 by the Pure Oil Company gas pumps and all. It served as a gas station, restaurant, bus station, newstand and tobacco shop. Some of the current employees, it is noted, have been working there for over 40 years.
For lunch I chose a patty melt that seemed to ... (yes, that is right) ... it seemed to melt in my mouth. Since we are from the north this seemed the perfect place to add some fried okra to the meal. I was right, and it was fried just the way I like it. My wife chose the fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, and fried green tomatoes. It was all good, and I took advantage of my folk and being close enough to reach her plate.
The complete meal including drinks was $28.48. We left filled and pleased that we had taken the opportunity to stop at the Blue and White.
