Eckert's Country Restaurant

The restaurant's an offshoot of Eckert's Orchard and Country Store, and customers are lured in by the biscuits -- deep-fried biscuits, downy and white as cotton batting inside, golden as hush puppies outside, and gingered up with apple butter from a crock on the table. The rest of the food on the homey menu -- fried chicken, turkey clubs, catfish and the like -- sticks to the ribs, and the restaurant's fresh-baked bread makes the satisfying sandwiches taste homemade.
