Georgetown Family Tradition: Fava’s Restaurant

We love trying out new restaurants that are unique to a town.  This time we decided to try visit a restaurant that has been around since 1910 and is known for its milk shakes and catfish sandwiches.  The best part is that we got to go with my aunt who lives in the area, and the restaurant was new to her also.

Georgetown Family TraditionTime stops as you enter under the red and white striped awning, and don’t forget to say “Hi” to the jockey waiting outside to greet you.  The fifties style tables and chairs have not been updated for years even though it has changed many hands over the years.  This family owned business started out as candy store and ice cream shop and was a local favorite. Jeni and Howard Gruchow who own Fava’s  presently make this truly a family style business.

This is a must visit and must see place if you ever come to visit Georgetown.  The food is excellent and service comes with a warm smile.  We tried both the catfish sandwich (my Aunt said it was fantastic) and the chocolate and banana milk shake.  We enjoyed the Disney memorabilia because we are huge fans ourselves and checked out all the wonderful pictures all over the walls.

popcornEveryone gave Fava’s four popcorns out of five because the atmosphere is family friendly and the shakes were amazing.  The food was reasonably priced and the service was very good, but it is a very small restaurant.  Don’t miss a one of kind joint that will make your mouth water for more.
