GOLDIES...whatcanI say....? FANTASTIC! comes to mind. I grew-up in DesMoines and MILLIE'S tenderloins was the place to go to for GREAT food. Our Govenor had his own parking space reserved, and set aside for him. Millie's closed years ago, with nothing to compare to it since. After I moved to COLFAX, Ia., everyone said "you have to try" GOLDIES in PRAIRIE CITY for their tenderloins. To make a short story...LONG...I did and I was ecstatic GOLDIES is GREAT food, service, and prices, also a dream come true.
We just fell into this place while passing through because we were on the road and starving. Had no idea what a lucky break we'd gotten. If you are driving anywhere near Prairie City and need a bite to eat, please, go to Goldie's. You won't be disappointed. Old fashioned prices and home town service combine with a delightful diner menu complimented by Goldie's own ice cream, on top of real pie, for instance. How real, you ask? Well, I asked our waitress, "Who made this gooseberry pie, because it's absolutely delicious?" Her reply: Linda B. . . . , a local woman. No kidding. Linda makes all their pies from scratch. Oh, need I mention, the slice of pie cost $2.75 and 50 cents more if you add ice cream. What more is there to say.
We sat outside and the first thing we noticed was how clean the tables were. All too often when a diner has outdoor seating they are unattended and dingy. While we were there we saw people with license plates from Georgia, Ontario, Colorado, and Tennessee. The tenderloin was without question one of the best we've had. The breading was golden brown and the Goldie's fries were crispy and perfect.
