The "Famous Pork Sandwich"

We just returned from North Carolina.  Such a lovely, dreamy place.  We visited the Snappy Lunch, which is the place made famous by Andy Griffith (Mt Airy being his hometown). Andy mentioned it by name on his Mayberry show and frequented the restaurant as a young man.  The place is a lunch counter in the most simplest terms. They are famous for their Pork Sandwich.   The sandwich is made from boneless, tenderized loin chop dipped in sweet-milk batter and fried (on a grill) until golden crisp. It is improbably large, sandwiched in a bun along with the usual All-The-Way condiments that include two slices of tomato, chopped onion, mustard, cole slaw, and special chili sauce.  This is what they call All-The-Way in North Carolina and you are pretty weird if you don't eat most things All-The-Way. If you ever get to North Carolina you must stop at the Snappy Lunch counter.  You will find it right next door to Floyd's Barber shop.
