Great food at that stop over the years and you never had to stop eating once you got inside the Friendly Road Inn….All-you-could Eat and it was the some of the best hot fish around the entire state, in an old Fish Camp-type setting….(They even had a big lake out by the road.)
The Fish Hole, as they used to call it, had been closed now for five years and I hate I wasn’t able to grab one more meal there before they closed her down….Bob Shaw, Linda Shaw, Anne Shaw, Barbra Shaw, pass the slaw and that tea they had was to kill for…The hushpuppies were so good you wanted to take them home in pockets and I did on more than one occasion….Bring me another load of the black bottom flounder…
Many a Western Guilford and Northwest Guilford athlete worked there over the years and now it is all gone, as we lose another key landmark in the history of our city…..
A true loss and it kind of made your stomach hurt to see the sad photos on WFMY NEWS 2 last night and you can CLICK HERE today to see another photo and to read more from today’s N&R….
We will all miss those wooden booths and the family atmosphere found out on Friendly Avenue, at the ‘Friendly Road Inn’…..
