This charming roadside stop is divided into three distinct areas – a bakery which offers an impressive selection of pastries, homemade pies and breads in the front, followed by a small Dairy Queen, and then finally, the actual restaurant.

Small-town charm, a menu filled with comfort food and some Iowan favorites like a pro tenderloin sandwich, and retro decor make this a great place to stop for a bit to eat whether you live in the area, or are simply passing through. The fried cheese balls are a local favorite!
