Annie’s Pork-N-Beans Country Store, Restaurant, and Campground
Annie’s Pork-N-Beans is a country store and restaurant. The store is a general store with everything from staples, snacks, drinks, automotive, hardware, and even local goods and crafts. The store is the former Tillman Ball store that closed in 1978. The locals called it Pork-N-Beans since that’s what they usually got. The new owners of the property Anne and Ricky Reathiford along with Anne’s brother Roger Drost and wife Tonya, strive to continue the tradition of the little store. There’s still a lot of people around with fond memories visiting there in the 60’s and 70’s.
The restaurant is the newest addition to the store. The menu has sandwiches you are familiar with, but with a twist. There’s always a special on the weekends along with breakfast on Saturday and Sunday. Whiskey barrel smoked bologna with pickled cabbage is what they are most known. Other sandwiches are becoming just as well known, like the curry chicken salad with bacon jelly or a Ruben with real corned beef, pickled cabbage on sourdough bread.
On the property as well, is a primitive campground. It has a total of six sites, four are creek side on Big Creek. There’s a common area as well to enjoy the water. Showers and laundry are also available for an additional charge.
The store, restaurant, and campground all are on a modern day homestead that was featured on Discovery Channel’s Homestead Rescue. Marty, Misty, and Matt Raney did an addition to the store, built a water wheel and a whiskey barrel smoker. This episode can be found on Discovery.
