  • More About This Book
The Tri-Cities has been blessed with fame-worthy eateries that have helped shape the area’s identity. Elvis shimmied through the area during his up-and-coming years, making for one incredibly happy girl and her not-so-happy boyfriend. Broadwater Drug Stores served hamburgers that brought in customers from miles around. Hungry patrons had to arrive very early at Mountaineer Restaurant or they wouldn’t find a place to park. Home Sweet Home and the Mezzanine Tea Room offered homey atmospheres and had the best quiche in the area. Visitors to Skoby’s World were treated to a culinary trip around the world. Author Daphne Matthews details the delectable stories of the most iconic restaurants in the Tri-Cities’ past.
