    You didn't mention tripping over preteens and preschoolers in the bar because their parents took them out to eat and bars are the only restaurants for 20 miles. Most small town bars have really good food if you want it fried or deep fried. Usually fairly hefty servings too. Stopped with my family to eat after a baseball game a few years back and the 12 and under crowd greatly outnumbered the over 21 group.
