Foodie Friday - Joe's Gizzard City

After 18 months of discussion, my husband and our friend Dean finally got their wish and dined at Joe's Gizzard City in Potterville, MI.

Helpful hints if you decide to visit this, umm, joint featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives:

1) Go with a gaggle of people. You're going to want to try a whole bunch of things, but this ain't no haute cuisine place. The portions are substantial, and the choices are vast. Why choose between deep-fried pickles and a plate of gizzards when you can have both?
2) If you don't see it deep-fried on the menu, ask. One of our pals had a vision - deep fried potato skins. The staff was happy to oblige, and we were happy to eat this ultimate bar food creation.
3) If you're not sure what to eat for dinner, skip it. Seriously. There's plenty of appetizers, and you need to save room for desserts (yep, plural - see below). But remember - you'll be missing out on the Guy Fieri-created Triple D burger, the only burger I've ever seen deep-fried in its entirety. That's right. Bun and all.
4) Did I mention you should go with a bunch of people? Desserts rule at this place - and trying deep-fried twinkies, nutter-butters, oreos, chocolate chip cookie dough and ice cream sandwiches was the best part of the whole trip, for me.
5) The best drink to go with dessert? Ice-cold milk.
6) Pack your antacid for the ride home. You don't want to know how much the Flying J charges for Maalox.
