Ever been to a place that makes you feel at home the minute you got there? It didn't take Rob Wilds long to feel comfortable at O'Brien's Southern Diner just outside Ashland City. Much of that 'at home' feeling is because of owner Candice O'Brien Beasley, who makes certain every plate that leaves her kitchen passes her personal 'perfection' test.
