Richie's Restaurant is located down Vine Street from Dan's place in Clifton, and I eye it every time we drive to his nearest Dairy Queen. ...Which is more often than I'd like to admit.
The thing that stuck out the most was their neon signs (which I've failed to capture in my pictures)-- the bright red Fried Chicken, Cornbread, Steak Nuggets, Okra, Sweet Potato Pie, etc signs stand out, especially toward dusk when my Blizzard cravings tend to hit.
We finally stopped to pick up dinner one evening-- there is a drive-thru and a carry-out, but no place to eat inside.
We ended up ordering a very blandly colored meal: fried chicken, cornbread, mac & cheese. The food was more flavorful than I'm making it look in my pictures, though I wasn't a huge fan of the chicken-- there didn't seem to be a lot of meat on it.
The cornbread is good, if you crave it from time to time like I do-- throw it in the microwave for a bit before you eat it. Mm.
