The Burger Bar - said to be the site of Hank Williams' last meal:

Sean Brock of McCrady's cooked a three-course trout dinner at the Bristol train station:

Pal's, the best fast food (and building) ever:

Fried bologna sandwich and cheeseburger from the Soda Shoppe in Abingdon, VA:

A round of Valleydale chili dogs overlooking the Bristol Motor Speedway (notice the industrial-strength red dye in those dogs):

Finally, here's Jeff, just before taking some laps around Bristol Motor Speedway (and apparently being scolded by Angie Mosier to keep it under control):
