How do you find a good restaurant in a small town? All you need do is watch for packs of senior citizens. In the little towns across American when seniors go out to eat they line up, precisely at opening time, usually at 5 PM, in front of their favorite culinary stop. In Boonville, Missouri the crowd at The Palace is already savoring fine Greek cuisine when I arrive. “Our Gyro dinner was voted the best in the state”, the waitress proudly announces. “Each couple will want separate checks”, an elderly male diner announces for a group of eleven of his companions. “Now her”, pointing across the table to a woman in a red dress, “She’ll have to pay her own her husband passed away”.
While reflecting on this phenomenon of live I enjoy my Gyro.
