    But during the winter months, fewer people drove the icy roads in that part of the county and business was sparse.

  • Hillbilly’s Country Fixin’s dishing it up right

    Years ago, when someone went to a “fillin’ station,” it meant buying gas for the car and getting something to eat, usually a burger or blue plate special. 

    “That’s what I want people to know. Truck drivers can fill their trucks and their bellies at the same time,” said Billea Wilson, owner of Hillbilly’s Country Fixin’s restaurant located inside Liberty Shell Mart on Wallace Wilkinson Boulevard.
