Jake & Dorothy’s

Day 16 Writer’s Digest April 2016 PAD

For today’s prompt, write a poem about (or at) a food establishment. You could pick on a chain like Taco Bell or McDonald’s, sure, but maybe there’s a local favorite–or some special dive. Heck, maybe that place where you took your first date or got your first job. Have fun with it, and if you need to do a little research, go out for something to eat.


Jake and Dorothy’s

The only place for Texas favorites…

Chicken Fried Steak

Home fries

Chicken Wings


the best cheeseburger ever


A small family run place

not a restaurant…

not a drive-in…

not a diner…


a local cafe in a small

Texas college town


The only place to eat

good, filling down-home

food on Sunday night

when the college dining hall

was closed


The only place to eat

when returning for a

home football game in the fall


The only place to eat

when just passing through

to catch a memory from

long ago


The only place I knew

that had little juke boxes

right at the table and

an intercom to place

your order from

menus at hand


Jake & Dorothy’s …

a Central Texas icon

for so many

Jake & Dorothy’s is located in Stepenhville, Texas. A small community know for having MOOLA representing the local dairy industry. Jake & Dorothy’s is on Texas Monthly’s list of The Best Small-Town Cafes and was our local hangout when I attended Tarleton State University in the 70s. Jack & Dorothy’s holds memories for so many and still has the best cheeseburger and fries I have EVER eaten!
