It was his choice where to meet, and he asked.. “do you know where Wynn’s Diner is on Leicester Highway? I thought I did, but then he reminded me that is across the street from the Ingles out that way, Northwest Asheville if you may. I ordered the Country Fried Steak, 2 Eggs Over Medium, Hashbrowns, and Light White Toast. Wynn’s Diner is what many refer to as a “Greasy Spoon” or “Grezzy Spoo”…
