I had stopped by Sir Latimore Love's River Bluff Diner
to take an image of this seriously awesome mural when Tommy McCoy stepped outside and cautioned me not to slip on the ice.
McCoy said the mural was there when Latimore Love took over the space the week before Christmas, but the menu was completely new.
"What do you recommend?" I asked.
"Everything's good," he said.
McCoy suggests the Don't Bluff Burger — an upgrade of the Bluff Burger — which features two patties, pepper jack cheese, bacon, and garlic mayo.
The menu also features po'boys, wings, and a healthy selection of meat and threes — from pot roast and fried pork chops to meatloaf. McCoy says that the only vegetable cooked with meat is the mac and cheese, which comes with bacon.
River Bluff Diner also serves breakfast and desserts are made fresh daily. (Try the excellent bread pudding.)
The restaurant is open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday-Friday.
McCoy mentions that the health inspector stopped by last week and has been back several times — as a customer.
