Dinner with a side of Wi-Fi
Some come for the burgers or the daily special of pork chops or meatloaf, but some come for the wireless Internet.
“More and more people are asking about the Wi-Fi,” says Jannie Stubblefield, who owns Hometown Grill with her husband. “It’s really beginning to be a bigger and bigger draw.”
The Hometown Grill sits on Main Street in McKee. It has wireless Internet from PRTC, and it is not uncommon to see patrons at the tables with laptops open.
It has been known as a hybrid establishment — part convenience store, part gas station and part restaurant. But after a significant transformation and the installation of a new grill, there is no mistaking what the place is now.
“We have become a full-fledged restaurant,” Stubblefield says. “We’ve remodeled, and we just keep adding tables. It is definitely a work in progress.”
The atmosphere is still casual, the menu affordable, and the food even better with its newly remodeled kitchen.
Diners can also catch their favorite TV shows in HD on a large screen HDTV provided by PRTC to showcase the TV services PRTC offers.
“We have the best catfish and burgers in town,” Stubblefield says. They begin serving breakfast at 7 a.m. and close the kitchen at 7 p.m. Monday-Saturday. Closed Sunday.
