    3 of the 5 remaining Kewpee Burgers are in Lima. The burgers are not sliders, but large and made with fresh ground hamburger.

    At night, the trees at the Holiday Inn fill up with bats and make a LOT of noise and fly back and forth from tree to tree. They also make a big poopy mess! I'm not sure, but i suspect this may be an alternative form for the Limans. If you irritate them they will poop on your car.

    They're noisy!

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Be on your guard at all times. If you feel like you are being watched then head for the east side of I-75. For the most part, you will be safe from the aliens on this side of the freeway.

    Favorite thing: Can be more difficult than with others.

    I went to get a donut one day around 10:30 . There were only about 2 dozen with 3 kinds of filled.

    DONUT LADY: Can I get something for you?

    J: Yes, I'd like to know what's in these donuts.

    DL: What kind do you want?

    J: I don't know. What's in them?

    DL: these are cream, these are custard, and these are apple.

    J: I'll have a custard filled.

    DL: I'm sorry, we're out of custard.

    J: Okay, what are those, are they sour cream or old fashioned?

    DL: yes, they're old fashioned sour cream.

    J: I'll take two. Do you guys just make donuts once a day?

    DL: I don't know, I'm not sure. Pause.

    J: Well, do you make them in the morning or in the afternoon?

    DL: I don't know. Pause.

    J: Will you have more later?

    DL: No. Pause.

    J: Do you make the donuts here or are they made someplace else?

    DL: Yeah. We close at noon.

    Anyway, the donuts were really good.

    MMMmm. donuts.
