    I did eat there once. I can't remember what it was that I had. But I do
    remember it being very good!

    The Flying J up the hill from me has replaced their restaurant with a
    Denny's. Crap by any other name...

    A) When I was driving, Flying J restaurants were solid, but nothing
    special.

    B) The dish you named isn't particularly good (I've never "gotten" white
    or milk gravy).

    C) When I was driving, Petro's Iron Skillet was the king of chain truck
    stop restaurants.

    Why, because I "get" white gravy? I guess someone died and made you
    Cooking King, and didn't tell me.

    What I like about the Iron Skillet is that it is the only place on the
    West Coast that reliably serves grits.

    The Irony involved in someone telling another person that they are
    committing "blasphemy*" because that other person doesn't like milk
    gravy and then moaning about who "died and made you Cooking King" when
    the remark is put in its proper place is a nigh on physical thing.

    Dude, it is well known that the term "nectar of the gods" refers to
    white gravy. Biblical scholars are nearly certain that the manna left to
    the Israelites in the Sinai was in fact biscuits in gravy. You're
    disparaging a true gift from God here. If you are going to be that
    sacrilegious, you can't complain when we all call you a heathen.

    My secret biscuits and gravy recipe is actually a DaVinci code with the
    location of the Holy Grail. You'll never guess where it is.

    My mother always called it "cream" gravy, although she made it with
    milk. I saw her over the weekend and she served lunch to a family
    reunion of 30 people. You had a choice of red beans & rice or gumbo,
    and she offered corn bread and French bread. Not bad for an 82 yr old.
    She is also trying to quit smoking, again.

    So wait - your mom lies a lot? I'll bet the "french" bread wasn't

    Oh - so that's the new PC term for it now?

    Is it still okay to say "black pepper" or should we now call it

    Absolutely NOT! They use too much flour in the gravy. I would be willing
    to bet it is made from a pouch supplied by Sysco or a similar company.
    Good white gravy should not be thick like wallpaper paste.

    We think the CFS at Lulu's Cafe in San Antonio is about the best we've
    ever had.

    Whataburger makes a much better white gravy (which is awesome with their
    chicken strips, BTW)
