Everything is made-to-order...just the way that you like it! You can choose your toppings and condiments. Hot food is served hot and cold food is always served cold. The cook is willing to prepare your food according to your specifications and within reason. Hubby really enjoyed chatting with him the last time we were there. Friendly!

Let's talk about prices. In my honest opinion...the prices are comparable to those you would find at a fast food restaurant but the food is 100% better! You can get the Aloha Big Breakfast for $7.95 and that fed us both! Their portions are very generous! You can order the Aloha Burger for lunch (made with Angus beef) and it's only $7.50.

The Porter-Parsonsfield Covered Bridge in Maine

The Porter-Parsonsfield Covered Bridge in located in Porter, Maine. If you're unfamiliar with the area...Porter and Parsonsfield are both located in the western part of the state. It was built in 1876 (lovingly restored in 1999) and spans the Ossipee River. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.

The bridge trusses are from a design by Peter Paddleford, more commonly known as a Paddleford Truss. It measures 152 feet long by 22 feet wide with a height clearance of 15 feet 6 inches. It has two spans, resting on granite block abutments and a central pier. The bridge was closed to vehicular traffic in 1960 and you'll find barriers at each end to keep traffic out. Pedestrians are permitted.

We enjoy taking road trips and seeking out covered bridges when we can find them. Unlike most that we see...this one isn't painted in the traditional barn red color. Instead, it has a nice time worn, weathered look to it. We couldn't find a lot of information online about this one, so we're sharing what we could find.
