A Feast Fit for an Almost 60-Year-Old-- Part 2

POPEYE'S ON GENEVA LAKE

The town is called Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, but the body of water is Geneva Lake. It has long been a resort for the rich folks from Chicago around the turn of last century. Today, you don't have to be a millionaire, but it "ain't" cheap.

Food at Popeye's is mostly in the $13 to $20 range.

But, it is really good and then there's that million dollar view of the docks and Geneva Lake.


THE ROTISSERIE KING

After ordering our tea, I noticed that the table next to us had a telephone, flower vase, current newspaper, coffee cup and a picture of a guy.

I inquired of the waiter who said the owner of Popeye's, Nick Anagnos, used to sit at this very table every morning before they opened and drink his coffee, talk on the phone and read his paper.

He died this past March and "The Tradition Continues." They have a little blurb on the drink list, "Nick Anagnos 1935-2011, The Rotisserie King."

Of course, Popeye's is famous for its chicken rotisserie cooked up outside every day. Some of the best chicken you'll ever eat.

More to Come. --RoadDog

Popeye's is excellent! I've been there quite a few times through the years and their outdoor roasted chicken is my favorite. The barbecue is top notch, too!
