rural Georgia restaurants

Suggestions for the best home-style cooking restaurants across rural Georgia ?
since no one has responded....
get a copy of Don O'Briant's book, "Backroad Buffets and Country Cafes". He visited several "meat & threes" &c around the South and has several in Georgia mentioned. You might try Dixie Dining.com for some suggestions. I can not recommend anything personally as it has been a while since I went "exploring".
Midway Meal House on Alpharetta Hwy, south of Cumming is excellent. Meat and two with bread and tea in the $6.50 range - and worth every penny of it.
Is Calhoun rural?
If you live in Atlanta, you probably think it is.
BJ's in Calhoun is one of the best (go West from I-75 on the Highway to Rome; Hwy 53, I think. It's on the left just before the first big intersection).
Bullock House in Warm Springs is also excellent.
Davis House in Ellijay is much better than average and great for the price ($4.50 for meat and two sides).
If you're up Clayton way, Henry's is excellent. Open only for lunch, T-F and Sunday. Located about 500 yds. south of the Wal-Mart on 23/441, set back from the road a bit.
Has anyone tried that place in Toccoa that Alton Brown visited on his bike, Shirley's I think was the name?
