It’s our last full day in Lincoln City, and I would like to have returned to the Beach Dog Café—this time for a breakfast of their biscuits and gravy. But, alas, they aren’t open today, so we will be forced (forced, I say) to indulge in another of our favorites—fried food covered in a crunchy coating. And having been somewhat virtuous in our food choices this past week, indulgence is in order. So we are off to J’s Fish & Chips.
And it appears that we aren’t the only ones. First from madaboutmushrooms.com: “Sometimes it seems as if we are in a perpetual search for the tastiest fish and chips. Well, our quest may just be over, now that we've discovered J's in Lincoln City.”
But I digress.
From the menu posted above the counter,
Chuck’s fries looked to be hand cut and my curly fries were coated. I so wish I knew how they do that! To me, the downer was the slaw that was cut into rather large chunks and was rather light on the dressing.
A good 4.0 Addie way to end our stay in Lincoln City. Tomorrow we have a short and quick seventy-five mile drive to Florence, OR.
The following morning we picked up US 101 and headed south along the Oregon coast. Even though it was a very short distance between RV parks, it was a strenuous drive--the fog, by itself, called for extra vigilance, but when we found patches of sunlight, the sun and fog combination made driving more difficult.
Well, we hadn’t anticipated the fog (although we should have). We didn’t anticipate the many twists and turns in the road. And we didn’t anticipate the road construction just north of Newport, OR. So we arrived much later and much hungrier that we had anticipated.
On our way through Florence, we passed Abby’s Legendary Pizza where we had eaten our first meal when we visited this city in the summer of 2009, and while the pizza didn’t knock my socks off, I remembered it being somewhat north of adequate. So, after unhitching, we head back into town for lunch at Abby’s.
Have you ever noticed that most pizza joints are virtually empty mid-afternoon? Abby’s was no exception. Well, there was one exception. Shortly after we sat down someone came along and proceeded to play the very noisy video game right behind Chuck. So for a while we were serenaded by the sound of racing motors.
And my rating of 3.5 Addies also remains the same.
