In 'Aunt Bee the Swinger', Aunt Bee tells Andy that she and Congressman Canfield had dinner at "The Reef in Nags Head." The Reef was a well known restaurant on the Outer Banks of NC for many years and the reference was no doubt suggested by Griffith, who lived in the area and probably ate there often. I live about an hour from there (just across the line in SE VA) and remember hearing about it. In the 50s and 60s, it was THE place to go for seafood when visiting the Outer Banks. It went out of business in the late 70s when development of the Outer Banks exploded and trendier places sprang up.

Good story!

By the way, the Mt. Airy/Mayberry area is quite the distance from Nags Head, even for a swinger like Bee.

Thought about that too, Bernie. It's almost 300 miles so they must have taken the congressman's private plane because she was cooking breakfast in her kitchen the next morning.

Just watched the episode last night. They mentioned pounded steak on the menu. They sure loved their pounded steak!

And saw the training wheels on their bicycle made for two. That Aunt Bee really knows how to swing!

Wonder if they had one of them open kitchens like at Morelli's, where you could look in and watch 'em pound it?

Got a kick out of those training wheels too, Mayor! BTW, does the background of this pic look familiar to anyone?
