Avid fans of The Andy Griffith Show remember very well why they loved it so much. It was because of the magical, nostalgic feeling evoked by a small town in Midwest America in gentler days gone by. Now there’s the Mayberry Cafe to take up the slack and give you that warm-all-over, well-fed sensation. The only difference is it’s in Danville, Indiana, in Central Indiana, just to the west of Indianapolis.
Go back in time as you enter the cafe in downtown Danville on the charming square. Recently renovated to include a second floor, this Danville restaurant does its utmost to provide total Mayberry immersion. You expect to see Aunt Bee come out of the kitchen any second, what with all the memorabilia. Three televisions even air the show throughout the restaurant, so you never forget where you are in time or space.
But it’s the delicious comfort food that will keep you coming back. It’s your basic American diner cuisine, all good, all abundant. Gravy thick enough to cling to your fork slathers chicken fried chicken and fresh, perfect mashed potatoes, just like Grandma used to make. Try Barney’s Barbecue Ribs, served with a potato and vegetable side, or the Otis Stew, named for the funny town drunk in old Mayberry. They bring you a basket filled with brown bread and cinnamon butter to complement your meal. Take the little elevator down a floor and check out the fresh salad fixins.
Prices are down-home good at the wallet-friendly Mayberry Cafe in Danville, which is another excellent reason for a return trip. Fans rave about the place and schedule a trip with anyone who comes to visit. This nifty dining establishment is so popular it gives Indianapolis restaurants a run for their money; it is the number one Danville restaurant and is tops with many residents of other nearby towns. Maybe you should give it a try soon. Eating at Danville’s Mayberry Cafe is even more fun than watching reruns.
