  • Out to Lunch: Doggone good food — and hot dogs — at Country Café

    On a trip to Dr. David Roberts Chiropractic office I asked his chiropractic assistant, Tonya Simmons, if she had a restaurant to recommend for an “Out to Lunch” article.

    “Have you been to Countryside Café on Hwy 58, in Ten Mile?” she asked.

    “I wrote about Countryside in 2012, and have them on my list to revisit,” I replied.

    Then I brought her a copy of the 2012 article on my next chiropractic treatment.
