A neighbor of ours told us about this place and said they had great food, whether for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. So, we decided we needed to try it and see for ourselves. To most, this place in "out in the boondocks" but it's only ten miles from our house, just down I-35. It's not the most eye catching place but I found it charming. The inside is comprised of two areas, the bar and the dining room. The bar seems to be larger than the dining room. If I recall correctly, there are nine total tables in the dining room (three of them booths) and a salad bar. So not a ton of room. The decor is mostly horses which thrilled our toddler. All of the tables were full around 6:00 pm, then they emptied and were full again by 7:30 pm. We were there for both, part of the joy of having a slow eating child! The menu is comprised of lots of homemade goodness! Everything from fried chicken to meatloaf to pizza. I opted for the Hot Tenderloin which is bread, deep fried tenderloin, REAL mashed potatoes (made with red potatoes), and gravy (brown or country). My husband had the four piece fried chicken with steak fries (also came with a salad and bread). We ordered the kid's spaghetti for our daughter. The salad was of good size and had green peppers, onion, cheese, and a pepper. My husband really enjoyed his fried chicken and even ranked it as the second best he's had in the Des Moines area! My tenderloin was a bit dryer than I prefer. I did get the gravy on the side and dipped it in. In hindsight, maybe I should have had it smothered and not on the side. Our daughter didn't eat much of her spaghetti but I enjoyed it the next day for lunch. The staff was so friendly! Our waitress was so willing to do anything to help us with our daughter. She offered to put her sippy cup through the dishwasher and although we declined, it was a nice gesture. The prices are reasonable. For the three meals we paid $26 before tip. I'm sure we'll be back!
I was on my way from Des Moines to Kansas City and was hungry for a bite to eat and happened to find this restaurant next to the Kum & Go. I ordered a Reuben with fries and it was fantastic! The service was great and the restaurant was full with an eclectic lunch crowd. Really nice laid back cafe! There aren't enough places like this around anymore. JUST EAT HERE! You'll be glad you did.
Great greasy spoon joint right off the highway - we stopped here for breakfast on a recent trip from DesMoines to Kansas City. The place was pretty full at 9am on a Saturday - even the bar had very few open stools. The food was a little slow to arrive, but delicious and reasonably priced. The menu was not overwhelming like a lot of breakfast places, but it had everything you could want all at a good price. I would definitely eat here again if I am passing through on the Interstate.
