Lumpy's - Bizarre Eatery - Closed

We just found a new strange place in Mount Pleasant Tennessee. It is called Lumpy's and is the only place to eat in the whole town. It has a real fire engine, player pianos, freak show banners, gas pumps, a missile, about 20 lava lamps and piles and piles of other junk just everywhere. We sat at a table that was a giant clock. We ate "virgin chicken strips" and a Lumpy Burger covered in "lumpy juice." A very bizarre and frightening experience. It is also just 15 miles from the Saturn car factory where we took the free tour.

Update - 4/2004, Stef writes: "Sadly, Lumpy's has gone out for business and was up for sale when we drove through. The fire engine and bizarre fittings are still there but the diner is most definitely closed."
