Eureka I found it!

The Claiborne House innkeeper is sharing this great website with everyone as our neighbor Martinsville Virginia, home to NASCAR's FAMOUS PAPER CLIP speedway is just down the road a spell...but even more see the page I am sharing - FENDERZ Drive-In!

We are heading down today to go to Fenderz Drive-in. Hand-patted burgers? You got my attention Fenderz! 

If you know me by now, you know I have been on this mission to find hand-patted, in other words NON FROZEN ALL BEEF PATTIES on a burger! For whatever reason when you eat out today (and sadly there is a place near us that serves from frozen burgers, and it is a "family style home-cooking restaurant" NOT!)  But is it too much to ask when we go out to eat to have the restaurant actually cook our food? Instead of heating or reheating it?

*Update - we just returned home and Fenderz was better than imagined! From the 50's decor down to the malted milk shakes! The service was outstanding, the food was served pipin' hot, and overall I give it 4 stars!


My recommendation from today: Get the hand-cut beer-battered onion rings, they are battered when they are cooked, and oh so delicious. Also, the all beef patties? Well we were told they buy the meat fresh every day at a local farm. Now the milkshakes, banana splits, sundaes etcetera etcetera they use our Homestead Creamery (which you have heard me bragging about the higher cream content), and are out of this world!  HINT: Fenderz is kitty corner to Walgreens in Collinsville VA. 

This place is road trip worthy!

ISN'T IT TIME FOR A BLUE RIDGE DAY Y'ALL? OR HOW ABOUT A PIEDMONT DAY? PIEDMONT MEANS FOOT OF THE MOUNTAINS.
