I saw the ghost of Elvis

One of the joys of vacation is trying new places eat. We most often opt for local eateries, cafés, and “Mom and Pop” diners. While on our mountain retreat, we stopped for lunch at Lindsay’s Roost Bar and Grill in Hot Springs, Virginia.

Great home-cooking. Classic cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato and mayo. Splurged by eating the burger on a bun and added French fries and ketchup, too.

Shared dessert with Dave. Homemade spice cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side.

Owners Lindsay and Phil treat everyone like family, and the Roost is clearly a favorite of the locals. The décor is a combination of their favorite collections, roosters for Lindsay and Elvis memorabilia for Phil.

Cash only. Worth every penny.

Long live the King.
