Today's post is not a very long or detailed one, but what's now Big Mike's Steaks & Hoagies was previously the Forksville General Store, and Big Mike's bought the place around 2005. Over time, it appears to have been slowly transitioning from general store to restaurant. The steaks in question, by the way, are cheese steaks. This is one of the only businesses in Forksville, a borough of just 110. It does have a post office, though.
There are some historical relics left over from the general store, such as these door handles for Sunbeam Bread. Big Mike's is known for great and big subs (or hoagies, as I should call them). I had a hoagie at Big Mike's and it was fine, but not special. It sure was huge though. The general store, located just next to the Forksville Covered Bridge, was around 3000 square feet. Today, I believe the closest grocery store is about 10 miles east -- where we're headed tomorrow on The Independent Edition!
