Homewood Grill

Nostalgic memories may cloud my judgement, but nothing beats Homewood Grill! I ate at this place on a weekly basis during my childhood. Everything is tasty, from the Twinkle cones to the Flavor Burst ice cream to the huge chicken tenderloin sandwich. My favorite for a long time was the upside-down banana split. Essentially, it's a banana split in a cup. What could be better than that? Then, I moved on to the yogurt in a cup with two scoops of crumbled Reeses cups. However, now that I'm grown and understand culinary genius, my "usual" is a Snap-Crackle-Pop Shake-n-More. Can't wait for my next visit to fill up on cheap, delicious ice cream!
Homewood Grill is Effingham's place for ice cream and more. I remember many summer nights at Homewood after a baseball game. When I drive home from Nashville it is one of my top places to return to. Their homemade ice cream is delicious but I can't get over their banana milkshake.
We just visited Homewood Grill after numerous recommendations and we had great ice cream treats! I had a chocolate soda which is hard to find and it tasted like those I remembered from youth. Great friendly service!

Joe Sippers Cafe

Reviews:
I love this place! I live in Phoenix now but I'm moving back to the area in about a month and can't wait to start coming here again. I used to come here all the time back in high school and I've been a few times since then when I've been home. It's got an eclectic atmosphere. Most of the workers and patrons are the indie, artsy type - it's kind of a hub for that type which is great to have in the area because there's not anything else like it around. This is a WONDERFUL and REFRESHING change from the chain restaurants on Keller. If you're driving through on the interstate, consider driving the extra mile or two to come here and get a unique experience and support local business! Being a vegetarian, it's hard to find good eating options in Effingham. It's very much a meat and potatoes town. Joe Sipper's has several vegetarian options. I recommend the herbivorian wrap. Their hummus is delicious but most of all their black bean salsa is AMAZING. They have local art hanging and local musicians come in to perform on certain days of the week. Can't say enough for how great this place has been for Effingham. PS. If you're driving south on 57 consider stopping in the Newman and Camden cafe (Herrin) or the Annex (Herrin) a few hours down the road. Similar atmospheres. Same size town as Effingham, same story. Show local gems some love!
My favorite local restaurant/coffee shop. I'm crazy about the iced toddys, blueberry muffins, breakfast wraps, and salads. Its a great place to meet a colleague or friend for lunch as well. Free wifi, interesting art, and fun furniture makes the place inviting as well.
I was sorry to see they no longer had the "Effing Ham" sandwich. But! They did not disappoint with the chipotle chicken salad and a delicious New Mexico-style green chile stew. The coffee is great and they even had a Chemex pot I was looking for for a friend of mine.

Decided to try this place out for lunch while we were in town. It certainly ended up being a good idea! They have a very extensive menu with great prices and the ability to make your meal your own with options such as handmade corn tortillas, options for your sauce (cheese, enchilada, etc), many meats, and more. The waiters weren't over the top fantastic, but I don't usually expect much friendliness when I go to Mexican places. They have lots of different margaritas and other drinks. I got the blackberry margarita. It wasn't the best I've ever had, but it was decent. Now...all that said, the food. Oh, the food. They have fantastic cheese sauce, and our sampler platter was delicious. Be warned, the salsa is quite heated, and they only have one salsa. The corn tortillas were amazing. The guac is good, but oddly not very heated. Overall, we were quite pleased with our lunch.
Traveling through. So glad we stopped based on reviews here. Tacos delicious, taco salad very tasty, tostado exactly what our picky eater wanted and expected, and the steak fajitas great without being tough or boot leathery. Clean. Friendly staff. Owners? Were pleasant too. We knew we'd chosen well when the local LEOs came in. Thanks for giving us something positive for the drive from Missouri to Michigan (several times a year) to look forward to in Effingham.
Solid call. In the road for work and like supporting local businesses. Good quality food, great friendly service.

Reviews:
OMG! This place is exactly as good as described. Totally worth all 5 stars. If you enjoy good food you will be truly impressed with the Firefly Grill. The building is the cool, the service terrific and the food amazing.
Classy, yet approachable elegance. Everything is top notch quality. Their California entrées are exceptional! I truly love their authentic fish tacos! The wait staff are genuinely caring and attentive. Always a great experience!
So fun! Perfectly swag, rustic, and sharp trendy atmosphere. Lovely grounds and open-concept. Classy industrial yet inviting & relaxed decor. Plush patio furniture to lounge on while you wait, or eat outside on the porch on the patio couches. Don't forget to ask for fish food so you can feed the huge catfish and goldfish from the pier over the gorgeous, quiet fountained pond. Oh, and order the House-Made Lavender&Lemon soda. To-die for.

Regional fast food is the best kind. The first time we stopped here was when we were traveling with a cat in the summer. We needed to eat at a place with outdoor tables so we could take her out of the hot car. Culver's? Sure, they've got ice cream. Oh, look, they have food! Since then it's been a regular stop on our road trips. They offer a variety of dishes beyond burgers, including some tasty vegetable sides. Originally started in Wisconsin, they're heavy on the dairy products- cheese curds! so much ice cream! As others have said, I don't know what it is about this one that is working so well, but the people working there are very friendly and helpful.
First time here it was great everything the service the burger was the best( and I am a five guy lover) I'm a over the road trucker.there is parking in the back.keep up the good work CULVERS
Locally owned with lots of smiles and fresh food. The prices here run a little more than your average fast food, but I would say they're well worth it. Generous portions and pretty fast service considering everything is made to order. This local company also donates to anything and everything within our community. Good people.
