We were advised by a local to eat at the Fourth Out which is a sports themed restaurant. When we went at lunch it was not very busy & the service was not overly friendly. They had typical hamburgers, hot dogs, etc (not the healthiest of choices) but also advertised a special each day.
The day we went they had the hamburger steak with mashed potatoes & another vegetable that I now cannot remember...hmmm. Anyway the hamburger steak was huge but not very hot & not much flavor. The mashed potatoes were very tasty with some garlic added in but again not hot. I am a coffee drinker so I was disappointed to receive little packets of dry powdered creamer with my drink. All in all I was not impressed with my meal.
After lunch we strolled the square & stopped in one of the antique stores to browse. I bought some old Christmas cookie cutters because they are so hard to find when you need them. The store clerk asked if we were passing through town....like I said small place but friendly people.
As we strolled we passed by the Funny Girl Deli which had a specials board outside. It made me want to try them out, so the next day we went to eat lunch there. It is a sandwich/soup menu but varied enough that you can find something good.
I ordered the half turkey deli sandwich & soup of the day which was Loaded Potato soup. Great sandwich but the soup was awesome! My 12 year old son tried it & had to order some to go to eat later in our hotel room. It was "loaded" with big chunks of potato, butter, sour cream, chives, & cheese...all blended for a flavorful but delicate taste, not over the top.
So if you are ever passing through Blakely, Georgia stop by the square & have lunch at the Funny Girl Deli, shop the antique stores, & have your photo taken in front of the peanut monument. For more info on things to do around Blakely I will be posting another blog soon on the Kolomoki Indian Mounds, so come back & check it out.
