Aunt B's is an unprepossessing hole-in-the-wall greasy-spoon type diner in what's almost the middle of nowhere. Despite all this, they deserve the world-class rating: the food is out of this world. If you are looking for that genuine old-timey atmosphere, artery-clogging burgers and fries or country-style entrees at ridiculously low prices, Aunt B's is the place to go.

Unlike chain restaurants like Sonic or Cracker Barrel, Aunt B's is the real thing. Cracker Barrel wishes they could make food like this. We had cheeseburgers, fries and something they call cheese balls that are a wonderful fried concoction of cheese and potatoes. The burger was so fresh it was still sizzling on the bun. It tasted like a homemade burger. Well, better than my Mom's homemade, even. The fries were excellent and the cheese balls... I am dreaming of the cheese balls as I write this, and my mouth is watering. A perfect crispy crust on the outside, and the soft cheesy potatoey filling on the inside, which you can dip in their homemade ranch dressing. Burger King sells something like this called Cheesy Tots- a pale imitation. The difference in quality and flavor is so extreme- I can't express it. They are simply heaven on a plate.

Aunt B's also serves traditional fare like hamburger steak, fried chicken, etc. I wonder if I'll ever try any of their other food- the hamburgers were so good I can't imagine ordering anything else.

If you ever have the opportunity to visit the Tri-Cities, look up Aunt B's. It's definitely off the beaten path, but it is worth the trip.
