There’s a very nice, super clean, but old restaurant in Kellogg you may have missed when visiting Lark’s Toys, one of the ten biggest and best toy shops in the country. That’s because you have to turn to the east off Hwy 61 rather than west to get to Lark’s.
But, turn you should, if you are hungry, in need of some smiling faces, and don’t mind spending a little less than when you go to those fancy places that reside right on the highway. Hey, it’s only about 2-3 blocks off. Don’t be lazy.
The food is good, there are plenty choices so that everyone will find something they like. When all else fails, my hubby says their burgers are the best in the whole southern half of Minnesota. Well, at least out of the 50 or so places where he has had burgers. That’s a dang good recommendation right there.
I loved their fried cauliflower, fresh salads and homemade cauliflower soup. Plus when I asked them for iced de-caf coffee, they came right up with the perfect drink even though they had never served it before. IT was delicious for me, a very fussy iced de-caf coffee drinker.
I also liked their drummie special with fried chicken drum sticks and green beans and mashed potatoes. It reminded me of childhood and home. It all tasted really good. Not too much salt at all, and Patty, the owner of 24 years, told me she only uses real butter. But I didn’t detect too much of that either. A great blessing for those of us over 40, 50 and beyond.
The fries were delicious and I am about to get back their for their pies, which are homemade and look really good. (Inserted later, we have had several of their pies and give them a hearty thumbs up! Even if you are on a diet, share some and try it!) So, when you are here, go there for lunch or dinner or breakfast. Check the hours. They are not open M-Thurs Evenings.
Look for the pretty lace curtains on the windows and the nice padded chairs for comfortable seating.
Oh, and they only take cash, but there are ATM machines within blocks.
