There is no shortage of interesting pieces of nostalgia in the building. As we glance over the menu we are greeted by a familiar smiling face, Ricky Mumphord, the owner of Mumphord’s Place. It’s not unusual to see Ricky behind the counter and in the restaurant joking with guests. We placed our order, picked a picnic table and our meals were promptly served. After taking a few bites I thought “How can a taste I am so familiar with seem to be getting better and better with every bite?!” Yes, it is that good.
Brisket that melts on your tongue and divine sausage that could have been smoked by angels in heaven. The green beans hold their own in the mix with a strong presence of garlic and bacon.A smooth potato salad brings you back to your senses and as you push aside the onions and pickles to get a bigger serving you realize…you forgot to dip your meat in Barbeque Sauce! It came to my attention that Mumphord’s sells their ‘Old School’ BBQ sauce by the bottle. The entire meal was reasonably priced so I didn’t have a hard time purchasing a bottle of my own.
