On the way to visit my sister - we were using our History Here app and decided to jump off the interstate quick to stop in Columbus at the Camp Chase Confederate Cemetery. I love any reason to get off the interstate and Larry likes anything historical - so it was perfect.
This was a POW camp during the civil war - it was so interesting looking at all the tombstones - there were soldiers as well as civilians.
It was a bit chilling just to see the rows and rows of headstones...
There was also a cannonball from a battle on display. If you're passing through Columbus - it's really close to the interstate and is a unique, quick stop.
Then two and a half hours later - we arrived in Kent! And we were hungry!
Sis said we had to go to Mike's Place - I remembered passing it on the way in - it had a plane of some sort in the parking lot - how can you miss it?! She said it's really good food, really cheap and they serve you BOWLS OF CHEESE SAUCE. Um - yes please!
I had a hard time even making a choice! The menu is HUGE and CRAZY! I mean - do I want to try Lutz Lavishous Lust, The Dump Breakfast or The Attack of the Crabzilla? How do you choose when there are things like that on the menu?!
Um - hell yeah! And you might be looking at the above and asking - well where's the cheese sauce? See the photo below:
I poured that cheese sauce over the veggie scramble and it was pure bliss! It was breakfast, lunch and dinner all wrapped up into one!
and biscuits and gravy! I stole some gravy - because I've become quite the sausage gravy connoisseur. This was some good gravy. It wasn't the best I've had - but I did like it. I'm a big fan of the oil/flour/milk concoction but this had something darker in it - maybe bacon grease? It just had another layer in there and it was good. I definitely helped sis finish this off...The waitress tried to take it and I almost stabbed her with my fork!
Why Should You Go? Well obviously I'm going to say you SHOULD go! The menu is huge - there's no way you couldn't find at least five things you're dying to try immediately. I'm still drooling over the Lost Amigo Rock Gut Omelette (and seriously - read the description). Head up to Kent - check out some history - and then eat your face off at Mike's Place. Enjoy!
