There is always something going on in Leiper’s Fork and at Country Boy Restaurant, well…it’s where Life gets the Love it deserves.

In the spring Country Boy hosted its first Annual Fried Food Festival.  The festival was well received by locals and out-of-town visitors, as they were able to purchase samplings of fried catfish, rooster fries, green tomatoes, Yukon Gold potato wedges, as well as Fried Girl Scout Cookies, Twinkies, and Snicker Bars.

The summer kicked off with Guitar Fest, Hillbilly Woodstock, free movies at Lawn Chair Theatre, and Cornhole Tournaments.  The excitement of events continues all the way through December.  The little village will offer events such as Waylon Jennings Day, Remote Control Airplane Fly-in, and the Annual Cork in the Fork, Hillsboro 1812, the Annual Chili Cook-off and our unique Christmas Parade.    Folks visiting will also want to see what our local retail establishments are offering in the way of events, for example Yeoman’s in the Fork host area guest lecturers that focus on Tennessee History.

The folks in Leiper’s Fork are always entertained and love it when company comes to visit.

So y’all come eat at Country Boy and stay a spell, ya hear.

Martin Family Purchases Country Boy

Country Boy Restaurant was purchased in July 2009 by Charlie and Shannon Martin.  Their goal was to take a 41 year old establishment and not change but continue its long standing tradition as a family owned diner.

Shannon who oversaw the entire project worked tirelessly beside local contractors during the renovations.  In August of 2009 she brought April Cantrell a long-time member of the community was brought to the team to restructure and modify the menu.  Cantrell who made additions to the menu, kept some popular standard too. One thing both Martin and Cantrell felt was important to keep on the menu was breakfast all day.  Cantrell, who was the opening Chef, wanted to make sure that good Southern cooking was a focal of the diner.

After a bit of a face lift and some menu modifications, Country Boy Restaurant re-opened on September 5, 2009.  Currently, Jarrod Webb, a resident of Leiper’s Fork is the Chef and is doing a great job of continuing the tradition of good country cooking, while adding his own flavor to the current menu.  Jarrod who has a long history in the restaurant business also has a great understanding of what the locals like to eat.  Since his arrival in March, he has added milk shakes, chicken salad, Rib-eye steaks nightly and an array of other delicious items offered on Country Boy’s daily Blue Plate Specials.
