Since this was my first garbage plate, I let the counter person help guide me. Customers usually get a choice of two bases from a list that includes; home fries, pasta salad, baked beans, mac and cheese, French fries, among others. I decided to go with the healthiest choice, the macaroni salad, which I could see had tiny specks of vegetables in it. Wow, that's a lot of macaroni salad!
