The restaurant that got national cable television exposure when Rachel Ray ate in Salem for forty dollars a day, is a great place to get your first meal of the day. Most everyone in town knows that Busick's on Court Street just west of Commercial is the place for breakfast, if you can get in. The menu includes eggs, pancakes, omelets, south of the border, and a selection called "Unique Breakfasts." The food all around is unique, the quality is very good, the portions are large and you leave with a memory of having eaten a good meal. Try the biscuits and gravy with eggs and two thick slices of bacon and you will see what I mean by large portions. There isn't anything on their menu over ten dollars including lunch. If you go on a weekend, expect a bit of a wait. The waiting area outside is covered with a couple of benches filled with hungry patrons. On a wall inside they have a plaque with a newspaper article about the famous Rachel Ray visit including her utensils. Sadly, a Salemite stole some of the celebrities silverware and left a space where her fork set. Since her visit, Rachel has gained even more success with her own syndicated show. Maybe now she spends a bit more than $40 a day for meals. When do you think she'll be back to Salem?
