Being a former California Girl, now living in the South, I have grown to love CB! Considering that the CA options were Dennys, Bob's Big Boy, or IHOP, CB is leaps and bounds!!
When my folks come to visit the first place they want to go is CB. Mom loves their breakfasts and my dad loves the fact that he can get great grits (no one in CA even knows what a grit is).
ANYWAY -- for Christmas this year I ordered the Country Breakfast Sampler off the CB website (complete with Cast Iron Skillet) and sent it to my folks in CA. THEY LOVED IT!! My father even called me to tell me he was sitting down -- in Hanford California -- eating real GRITS!!!
IT WAS A SCORE!!!!!
