Health Camp in Waco TX (photo by Sheila Scarborough)

No, I wasn’t being arrested at Health Camp; the police officer inside was having lunch, so there was backup as I attacked my arteries with….

A perfectly crisp corn dog with cornbread wrapping that actually tasted like cornbread, and….

A peanut butter shake, with bits of peanuts hanging suspended in a super-thick dairy confection (there are 30+ shake flavors to choose from, but I passed on Grape, Blue Hawaii and Toasted Marshmallow.)

This roadside eatery on a Waco, Texas traffic circle has served locals and travelers alike since 1949.

Just call it an inside joke by the founder, and pay a visit.
