I have to take a few minutes to tell you about one of my favorite places to eat. I've mentioned it here on the blog before, but when I was there last week, we got this pic and I thought that I would do a whole post. This pic below is the amazing owner, Terry, and her daughter, Lacey.
The Veranda is located at 149 Bonita Parkway in Hendersonville, TN. For you locals reading this, it's in the back of Patricia Jane, the cute little shop that is located right in front of the old Walmart in Hendersonville. They are open for lunch Tuesday-Saturday from 11ish-2ish I believe.
Why I love them? They are both the sweetest people and Mrs. Terry can COOK! The fruit tea is TO DIE FOR, the grilled pimento cheese is the best thing on the menu, and the daily specials are amazing. Last week, I had a cheesy artichoke soup that was probably the best soup I have ever eaten. On Saturdays, they have quiche. YUM!
A few other things you might not know: Mrs. Terry will open for you if you want to do a Sunday School luncheon, etc. and need a space. She makes casseroles/quiches/etc. for you to carryout if you need something for a baby shower, etc. They have a great outdoor play area for the kids including a tree swing my kids LOVE! Since they are locals, I just wanted to give them a shout out and hopefully increase their business....they are WONDERFUL ladies and deserve to be packed day in and day out (but save a table for me!)
Now, the best part! Leave a comment on this post and on Saturday, May 9 at 10pm I will draw out a name and that person gets a $10 gift certificate to The Veranda. Go eat at the Veranda, you'll be glad you did!
UPDATE: Veranda has gone out of business since this post :(
