Est. 1929, American small diner, that serves the iconic state favorite sandwich, the Maidrite otherwise known as the loosemeat. 100% pure ground beef sandwich. The tenderloins are hand breaded inhouse and all soups and desserts are home-made. Breakfast includes scrambled eggs, belgian waffles, and homemade biscuits and gravy. The generational diner has been a local favorite hangout for all age groups in a 21 seat cafe at the foot of the business district a few blocks from the Mississippi River and the worlds largest swingspan bridge.
