Anyone think $5.50 is too expensive for a plate lunch? When you add in a drink, tax, & tip that's rather pricey for Hickman. I would suggest they include the drink if they want to maintain business. The Smokehouse in Fulton does along with Grogan's & Ruby Faye's in Clinton.

Memaw's has Parker's & will soon be the only plate lunch in town again.

Have you been to any of the other places listed? You get your moneys worth there too + drink included!

McDonald's shouldn't factor into Memaw's pricing but you're right...Memaw's blows McDonald's out of the water when compared for what you get vs what you pay. It does however cost around $8 for Memaw's for lunch.

$5.50 for lunch. That doesn't seem that bad. Expecially for a plate lunch. Heck, I went to Cracker barrel a couple days ago for Breakfast and the Country Morning Breakfast is $4.59 and I substituted harsh brown casserole for the grits adding another dollar then add on the drink for about $1.50 and look what it is.

But if you want an unhealthy lunch - McDonalds and Wendy's uses processed meat for their burgers and it will cost you about $5.00 at least for it.(I really don't eat fast food unless absolutely have to so I don't know what the cost really is).

I love to come to Hickman and eat breakfast out. Good ole biscuits and gravy with eats and bacon. Yum Yum

Could someone please tell me where MeMaws is??? I keep thinking that it is the old Moonglow but really don't know.

I have got to plan some meals at all these restaurants when I come to Hickman next summer.

Memaws, Hubs (I eat there everytime), Parkers, Cayce Cafe, any others that I am missing? Because when I read all these posts about them - it really makes me just want to try them out.

Stevie, before I registered I never came up with that city under my name. But then again - it came up with towns close around me.

As far as mom and pop versus chain, ours are about equal here. We do have a couple of mom and pops we go to and really, no difference. Prices all about the same.

I can say that I ate in South Fulton on one of my trips home this summer. It was at a restaurant called Poppy's or Poppa or something like that.(it was closed down when I went back Labor Day weekend) Anyway, it was so cheap and very good. Guess that is why it didn't make it.

Last - not every hamburger is made with 100% beef. I know McDonalds says theirs is but hard to look at it and say that is true. Some use fillers and pork,among other things, but not just beef. While others make sure that plenty of fat is mixed into the beef so it can truly be a 1/4 pounder or 1/2 pound burger.

Even at the grocery you can buy 70%, 80% ground beef or you can go over and buy real angus burgers. Taste alot different.

So when I think of "most" fast food hamburgers, it sure isn't close to real angus beef hamburger meat. They might all be processed but what is processed in it matters to me. NO FILLERS OR TONS OF FAT PLEASE.

Thanks yepp - last time we were there it was closed. Not sure why. Maybe we just went there the one day they are closed for the day. But I thought it was on a Saturday.

But thanks again - they had a very good and cheap breakfast.

The economy is hitting everyone Hard. Even MeMaws and the local eateries. Take into consideration the cost of transportation for the foods that come via a semi truck, the utilities, insurance, any benefits offered to the employees. There is definately a trickle down affect. From the larger corporations right into your plate lunch.
Remember though, the small town business won't survive without good customers like yourselves. So keep supporting them. That is what America is all about. Speaking of McDonalds-ever see the movie Super Sized? Check that out, if you only knew what you put into your body, you'd be more loyal and grateful for the small town real food establishments. Speaking of Moonglow...aaah, remember when Pauline and George ran that place? The BEST FOOD EVER!!!! GOOD TIMES TOO! Take care of eachother and yourself.

memaws has great food but the owners are mean to their employees. they talk to them like theyre crap and are just plain rude. they even talk about some of the customers that come in. they love to be nice to them to their face and then talk soo bad about them once they leave. plus theres all kinds of extra charges that they dont tell u about. like a slice of cheese for a burger costs u an extra 50 cents. and a to go cup, if u dont order it with ur meal, u pay 50 cents just for the cup. they milk u for all ur money. its ridiculous

Memaw's is NOT going in Parkers. It is a couple of ladies from Texas are.
Stopped going to Memaw's when the visine dropping waitress was rehired. And an extra 30 cents if you want mayo on your sandwich, come on!!
