Restaurant Details

Not many people know about this unusual restaurant, and its devotees prefer it that way. The restaurant started out as a gas station back in 1940, doing a brisk business selling baskets of fried chicken to locals and bus passengers along Highway 372 en route to Kansas City. Over the years, the chicken stand has turned into a genteel, old-fashioned dining venue now operated by Bill Grace, who literally grew up working here. The specialty is still pan-fried chicken dinners -- though there are steaks and pecan-crusted trout, too – all served family style with soup, salad, muffins, corn, green beans and freshly baked bread. These reasonably priced dinners include a few desserts, but the most famous– a square of warm “baked fudge” – is now à la carte. Like everything else in this quaint little joint, it’s well worth it. — Charles Ferruzza
