In this spinoff of "Alice", ex-Mel's Diner waitress Florence Castleberry returns to her hometown of Cowtown, Texas, and, on a dare, buys a dilapidated roadhouse. Renaming the place Flo's Yellow Rose, Flo attempts to fix the place up, turn a profit and deal with the somewhat mixed-up and burned-out customers and employees, including bartender Earl, pianist Les, greedy banker Farley and customer Chester.

Kiss my Grits! was Flo's line to Mel on the Alice show. Let's face it, Flo was a much loved character who overshadowed the show's titled star. Yes, Linda Lavin was great as Alice but Polly Holliday as Flo was a scene stealer with the wise cracking chewing gum attitude and beehive hairstyle. Of course, the show was never meant to be a hit but Flo should have been. I think the show never regained it's moment. It was Alice who played the straight character to funny Flo. I barely remembered the series but I remember Flo as being my favorite. I was thrilled to see her on in her own show but it never got picked up and Alice re casted the third waitress with Diane Ladd and somebody else. Nobody could have replaced Flo, she was truly one of the best television female sidekicks.
