SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTHI) - The Fork in the Road crew doesn't have a lot of rules when it comes to finding spots to feature.
They look for local places and no chain restaurants plus they try to find eateries in the WTHI viewing area.
But when they find a spot that serves a dish named after a "mountain of food," well they make it a rule to check it out.
So they drove to Sullivan County to head back to the Kat-A-Korner Diner.
"I came in and ate for my first time and I kind of fell in love with it," said owner Fred Richey. He loved the food so much at Kat A Korner that he bought the place!
"It is definitely a staple and one of the most popular things on the menu."
Fred is talking about a dish called the Hunter's Mountain.
"Even with the half order they say it's too much to eat, and I say yeah...it's almost like a food challenge."
"When they first see it they say well we can't eat all that, and that's when we say well maybe you should have had the half order instead of the full order," said Fred Wamsley, former owner of the diner.
On a good day they serve 40 to 45 of these mountains of deliciousness. A full order is two biscuits split in half, covered with hash browns, eggs of your choice on top and then smothered in gravy.
