I travel to Fairplay occasionally to visit one of our outlying offices. The culinary options have never been particularly outstanding. Fairplay is, after all, where I was first introduced to the idea that cream gravy on a chicken fried steak could actually be transparent. Usually...More

Excellent pulled pork and amazing veggie sandwich. The greens and coleslaw are to die for! Very nice family running the place. Thank you so much for serving a veggie sandwich that is jut as amazing and thoughtfully prepared as the meat!
