I'll be calling on the big construction site near the old DuPont plant, and was wondering if there were any "local gems" to stop in for lunch.....

Any suggestions in that area? Camden, New Johnsonville, Waverly?

Camden has a good Mexican place on 641 called El Vallarta and they are very fast to get food.Also a good BBQ joint called the smokehouse also on 641.Country and western towards J ville from the square has good catfish.Good wings on 641 has the chicken.The good steaks are at the country club on thursday nights on eva road.

Jeffs Place is pretty good. Reasonably priced also.

Not much...LoL. Jeff's Place in New J'ville has decent food and good looking waitresses.If the bowling ally was open I'd tell you to go there and eat pizza. I would tell you to go to Parsons and eat at Jerry's Barbeque but I don't know their hours.It would be about 18 miles South of I-40 when you get off Exit 126 but it's pretty damm good.

Whatever you do...don't eat at the Catfish Place in Camden...

My favorite is "Country and Western" in Camden. It is a catfish eating place. 7-10 dollars per plate. Never get a bad plate of fish.Every Fri and Sat night they will be packed but still get your food on the table within 5-19 minutes.
Difinitely a place you want to try. Guarnteed!!!!

I know too much about Jeff's. I'll eat out of a vending machine first.

The bowling alley pizza is awesome.

Good advice on the Catfish Place.

Country & Western Steakhouse in Camden is very good AND I know for a fact it is safe to eat there.

Cleanest restaurant ANYWHERE is 1850s Log House on 641 N in Camden.

Thanks everybody. I appreciate the help. Ultimately, it'll come down to what my clients' input is. However, I like the sound of C&W....I'm going to look into the Log Cabin, too. But right now, I'm leaning towards Mexican. And since Tequila John's posts a menu online, I may try it. A place that offers corn tortillas with meat, cilantro & onion as a "taco" already scored points in my book.

El Villarta is the same as El Porton in Memphis. I've eaten there a couple of times...eehhhh.

I had forgot about Log Cabin and Pebble Isle Marina...don't know their hours this time of year. During the summer when I'm up at my house on Birdsong, I take the boat over to Pebble Isle and eat breakfast on the weekend. Real good food.

That's what I was afraid of.

The guy ended up being pressed for time, so we went to a little diner just down the road from the DuPont plant exit. It had a steeple on it, and lunch was decent. I don't recall the name, but it had a white steeple on the roof.

Thanks for the input, everyone. I'll be up there more and more this spring, and will try for as many places as I can.
