Locally owned restaurants
I would like to ask for everyone's favorite restaurant. My wife and I prefer to go to locally owned (mom & pop) restaurants over chains. We've had better service and better food, often at better prices than what you get at the national restaurants.
Our absolute favorite is Hollerbach's Willowtree Cafe in Sanford. They have fantastic German food, great beer that you won't find anywhere else, and live entertainment in the evening.
