    We had an employee get together here a few years back. I've been wanting to tag this restaurant for awhile now.

    EDIT:
    Well, not right this minute anyway. :lol3

    EDIT #2:
    I guess I should show you all where Sarge is hanging out...

    PS....map updated


    I am sad to say our first tag location........Mama Angelina's is OUT OF BUSINESS. Not because we didn't support it, just due to internal problems (from what I heard).

    also.. would you be opposed to a restaurant that is about 5 miles "out of bounds" but is AMAZING for food?

    so, after sarge and i had a long talk and ate the "special of the day" yummy fish sandwich, i slipped him into my front pocket and we set off.

    i talked to sarge and he says it's been a while since he's been around a government facility. i thought for a bit. he then saw my bike and told me "racetrack". hehe. must be the stripes? anyways, i told him THAT i could do. so we set off due north.

    Sarge lucked out because at this particular racetrack facility they also do government training as well. We rode by there and stopped in at my first tag choice.

    Originally i was going to drop him off at a different location and the lady behind the counter told me she had to talk to the owner first, who wasn't there. No big deal. I left my number and headed out on my way. Future tag location! hehe.

    Sarge turned to me and said that he heard of a small gas station that has an amazing Alabama Chicken sandwich. Luckily, we were right down the street and i pass this location at least 2x per week. Off we went, into a steady rain..

    the owner of this establishment was all smiles when i dropped Sarge off. Not only do they have great pulled pork, ribs, and an awesome alabama chicken sandwich, they also have ethanol free gasoline! while you fill up on food, fill up your mule as well!

    You can also just stash the mascot somewhere on the property without having to deal with anybody if it makes it easier. Some folks figure it out and are more than happy to play along...some just shrug their shoulders, thinking were idiots and say "whatever".

    Whatever...:lol3

    See what I mean about some of the Restaurant staff/managers. :clap

    No need to find the hours...

    HOURS:
    MON - FRI 6 AM TO 10 PM
    SAT 6 AM TO 10 PM
    SUN 8 AM TO 7 PM

    Well done sir!

    One question...
    Why didn't you stop by and grab this duck too? :deal

    the other location will be tagged i'm sure. but this place really does have AWESOME bbq. best i've had outside of texas. and the apple cider vinegar they use in the pulled pork is soo good. the brisket is great as well.. i don't care if you guys go get this tag or not, i think i'll be there this weekend for lunch anyways! hahahaa.

    the car on the trailer was a local that stopped in to show off some "dui salvage" vehicle he acquired.

    Thats the beauty of this game......I have ridden past this place a dozen times. Never considered stopping for any reason......thats no longer the case

    on another note....i didnt make a tag today. I did however, pass "Sarg" on to Motocox at the RTE today in Marshall. I offered to let him drop Sarg at a place of his liking. (my version of recruiting new players) :)
