Browns Cafe has been closed down for 30 years or more. The family owned Ralphs Drivce-In for many years in the '60s and '70s. One of the daughters is now a Tennessee State Trooper. I am not sure about the kids.

Awesome family. I know a few of them and consider them great friends. I remember eating at Brown's and Ralph's and have some happy memories from those times.

There are three different Brown families being discussed here. Bert Brown had Browns Cafe that was next to the movie theatre by the creek. Rite Aid is there now. Bert is the one that had the burgers with slaw on it. Ralph Brown had Ralph's Drive thru at the location where Hardees is now. The other Browns was at Wilder and Wheeler and had smoked meat.

Makes me hungry just reading about them. Wish places like that were still around town. What is up with the Chinees food place where Shacks was at? I miss Shacks. RockwoodGrill is good. Id take Hardees over Juniors. Their quality has declined.
