This Timeless 1930s Restaurant In Iowa Sells The Best Tavern Sandwiches In America
Iowa is famous for its loose meat sandwiches. Some people call them maid-rites, some people call them taverns, and some even call them scrambled hamburgers, but at one place in Ottumwa, they’re Canteens. And at this tiny hole in the wall, you’ll find the best canteens in the world.
You can find Canteen Lunch in the Alley at 112 2nd St. E., Ottumwa, IA 52501. The restaurant is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
