That place has TON's of room.  I think every Moto Guzzi rider east of the Mississippi could show up and they could seat them.   I'll be there.  I've only eaten lunch there once, but breakfast dozens of times.  It's my go-to breakfast stop when I'm heading out west on a long trip.

I rode by there this morning and the place was packed for breakfast. Never eaten there but based on the parking lot it must be good.

Just got back from our third annual trip to your region--beautiful places, and just take a left off a road with a number and you've got all the riding adventure you'd like.  We always miss your meetings by like 2 days :undecided:

Jim Oliver's Smoke House really is a good place to eat.  They have a buffet as well as the menu.  It's also a "breakfast served all day" kind of place.  On a nice weekend, there will be several Harleys and such in the parking lot.  The hotel on the premises used to be a Best Western many years ago, but I have no idea how the rooms are now.   https://thesmokehouse.com/restaurant

I have a soft spot for Jim Oliver's Smokehouse.  Several decades ago, when my parents were still living, a couple of times each year I'd ride my Harley back to Kansas for a visit. I'd leave my house in Cumming, Ga. at O:dark thirty.  Back then, Cumming was still a one-stoplight town, and I vividly remember heading out before dawn, often the only vehicle on the road.  I'd take GA20 across to I-75 and ride up to Monteagle.  By the time I'd exit, the sun would be coming up and I'd be ready for breakfast.  The Smokehouse was my go-to breakfast stop on all those rides.  It was a less crowded time, fewer cars, fewer deer!  Monteagle hasn't changed too much, nor has the Smokehouse.  When any of my riding buddies come up from Atlanta, we always meet at the Smokehouse for breakfast.

Breaks my heart to hear that Jim Oliver's restaurant has burnt down. It has always been a favorite day ride for myself from Pulaski and onward to the Curly Putman Highway for some twists and turns.

I plan to ride to Tracy City on the 22nd of May as for one to look forward to meeting some of the folks here and it's always my birthday ride.

Be well..be kind and be safe!

Hey Bob,  right now it looks like I will be in town that weekend.  Now I have to order a new rear tire for the V7 so it arrives about the time I get home so I can get it mounted in time.  3000 miles on rear tires is the worst I have ever seen on a motorcycle.

Itís been raining on me the whole trip.  I am getting a little tired of riding in rain and cool temperatures.  Heavy rain today with high temperature of 50 degrees.  Iím still cold.  Lol

Yep, 3000 miles is pretty bad I guess.  Stelvio will need some new ones soon too Iím thinking.  Maybe by winter.  I have to check them.  Hope you can make it and itís dry weather

Terrible.  I think it opened there in 1975.  I started many a trip there after a good breakfast.  So many good restaurants I've been to over the years that have burned down sooner or later.

So many good restaurants I've been to over the years that have burned down sooner or later.

That seems to have been the fate of many good BBQ joints, probably due to open flame pits.

The ones I know were rebuilt with the fire pits separated from the restaurant.

Twowheeladdict, is that a Fiat Brava in picture at gas station? I bought one new can't recall what year it was maybe 1980. 5 speed standard 2 litre engine, to date best car i ever owned.
Paid $5,000. for it and put nearly 100,000 miles on it and sold for $2,500. Wish I still had it sometimes. Never any problems with it (well maybe a speeding ticket or two).

I think it is a BMW something or other.  A stain on an otherwise cool photo location.

  Great turn out and good conversation.  Good job Bob!!  Iím curious if Brian made it home since he was following speed racer Mike.   

I can be the "Law-a-biding type" , just the speed limit plus a little (98.5% of the time) .   :police:

Oh yea Solo , we had a nice relaxing ride down the mountain on 56 - then 50 till we got to the back roads into Lynchburg.   Then stopped at Pat + Spring's shop below the square for a cold one  :boozing: (water) and a little walk-a-bout to get the blood flowing again .

Thanks for getting us together Bob !  :thumb:  It couldn't have been much better , and enjoyed meeting ya'll again !!  :cool:

And a really big thanks to whoever bought that Really Big Cupcake !   :laugh:
