This Small Town Iowa Pub Has Some Of The Best Food In The Midwest
There are so many great mom and pop restaurants in Iowa that it’s always easy to find one nearby. No matter how much you love your local favorite, there are a few spots in the Hawkeye State that are worth a drive from nearly anywhere in Iowa – and the General Store Pub is one of them. If you haven’t yet dined on their riverside deck, indulged in their Bailey’s Roasted Marshmallow and dug into the Tackle Box appetizer, you’ve got to make it a point to head here as soon as possible.
The General Store Pub is located in the small town of Stone City, Iowa.
Technically the address is 12612 Stone City Rd., Anamosa, IA.
This charming pub is located on the Wapsipinicon River, and in the summer, you'll want to dine on the outdoor deck for the scenic view!
The food here is out of this world! Be sure to start with their famous Tackle Box Appetizer.
The enormous app comes with waffle fries, breaded mushrooms, white cheddar cheese curds and onion rings.
Like any good Iowa pub, the General Store Pub serves up a mouthwatering tenderloin.
It's hand breaded and makes a case for being the best in the Hawkeye State.
The General Store Pub also serves an assortment of burgers and sandwiches that will make your mouth water.
The Berry Goudaburger is a crowd favorite. It's topped with smoked gouda, bacon, carmelized onions and their signature "RazQ" BBQ sauce.
Speaking of RazQ, the General Store makes some fantastic BBQ pulled pork or ribs.
They offer three difference sauces - a classic BBQ, Twang (teriyaki BBQ) and RazQ (berry bbq). You can't go wrong with any of them!
Any pub would be incomplete without a few signature drinks, and the General Store Pub does them right.
Their Roasted Marshmallows are famous throughout the state. Dipped in Baileys and roasted over an open flame, you don't get any more creative than that! They also serve a tasty "Wapsi-Rita", served with gummy worms.
