Don't let the summer go by without taking the family to Juniper Valley Ranch Restaurant. The fried chicken dinners with all the fixin's are being served for a 66th season out in the country south of town. It's a nostalgic experience inside the red adobe mud hut, built by a man whose family continues the mouth-watering tradition. Pick the chicken or baked ham to go with the potatoes and gravy, cole slaw, okra casserole and biscuits with apple butter. Chicken: $19.50 per person, $20.50 for ham, kids under 12, $9.
