    Jed, you must have eaten there when it was still in the living room of the house. The place only had a few tables and we had to wait in the front yard to be seated. Then they renovated the Jehovah Witness church which was on Court and First or Second street.
    oh wow Dave just read this you raised the hair on my arms. Brought me back home. I was born in woodland. Your right...I ate there soooo long ago.
    Great info glad hear someone remembered the dressing. It was incredible. The original owners took it to their grave new place your right not even close. I remember it had little red specks in it. But cumin is one I need to try. It could be it. Never really thought of using it. I use it a lot in my chilli block for chili beans and hot dog sauce.
    Thanks, Cj

    Sounds good thanks so much. I pretty sure there out of business. I use to eat there with my parents and sister early 60s they made a Ranch Dressing they could have bottled and been very rich people. I was looking for someone who may have eaten there, if they did they would have definitely remembered the dressing. I have tried for last 35 years to copycat. I have gotten close but not there yet. I actually gave one of my team members extra day off to visit with his very old mother see if she may know the seasoning I'm missing.
