EPODUNK USER REVIEWS & BLOGS

I have lived here all of my 50+ yrs and all and all I love this little town, only 5 traffic lights and not too much traffic on the Highways most days!
We recently got a SMALL Walmart and now we need some good places to eat, its a shame that we have to drive all the way to Cookeville just to get a good meal, other than burgers and Pizza!
All tho crime is everywhere our little town don't usaully have too many serious types of crimes going on, drugs and all that comes with that is our major problem!
Not much to do here, if you're into the fast pace life style; church gatherings,kids ball games, water sports, horse rides, four wheeler,hunting and fishing thats about all there is to do around here...
