The night before Barack Obama's inauguration, the hotels in Hagerstown were full. What were the chances of getting a meal without a long wait? Good, if my friend and I went to Pacific Ocean Buffet on U.S. 40, Dual Highway, in front of Days Inn. Expecting crowds, we were surprised to find the restaurant just pleasantly filled. The patrons were road-weary travelers, groups of families and sets of young men. The restaurant easily sat more than 100 people and had a selection of foods that would appeal to many.
