Last weekend I drove up to Juliette, Georgia...this is the town where the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes" was filmed. They were having a Green Tomato Festival and since I've always wanted to see where the location, this was a great time to enjoy good food and look around.
I parked right next to the famous railroad tracks seen in the movie...I was very careful not to let my feet get stuck! This is a busy track...trains are flying by every hour.
My first stop was to have lunch at the Whistle Stop Cafe. I got there early and beat the festival people.
The movie "Fried Green Tomatoes" definitely put Juliette on the map and tourist still flock to this little town to enjoy the good Southern cooking at the Whistle Stop Cafe.
The fried green tomatoes are a must! They were excellent and are served with a special radish sauce.
I decided to also get the vegetable plate...macaroni and cheese, collard greens, field peas, and corn bread...all delicious!
After lunch I strolled the little main street of Juliette...it was truly like stepping back in time. Just like in the movie. Vocalists perform at the Opry House. Isn't it adorable?!
The shops are very quaint and offer antiques, foods, clothes, and souvenirs.
This was my favorite shop--The Whistle Stop Train Depot...full of repainted furniture, gifts, and lots of cute Southern stuff.
I bought this cute little lamp with a burlap shade...it's the perfect reading light next to my seat on the sofa.
I absolutely adored this movie. It's a toss up as to who was my favorite character, but I guess I have to chose Kathy Bates. The scene with her in the parking lot of the Winn Dixie...my all-time favorite!
I'm gonna watch it again tonight...for the umpteenth time!
Who was your favorite character in the movie? Is it one of your all-time favorites?
