This was recommended by a local and it definitely has a family flair. Most guests were welcomed by name and waitresses knew their likes. Food had a home cooking touch and portions were large.

We were spending the night at the hotel next door, so we decided to try this highly rated restaurant. It was very crowded on a Saturday night so we were glad we went early. The food was decent, but nothing overly exciting. We went for the fried fish special and there was a lot of food. There were a number... More

First of all I thought this was an oriental food restaurant of some sort. I inquired Trip Advisor (TA) for local eateries. Du Kum Inn came up rated fairly high on the list for the Sullivan, MO area. I surprised my bride by going there around brunch time during the week. She commented "oh this is different, what type of... More

Food was good but slow to arrive at the table. Place was full of locals. Waitress had to be asked while walking by for more coffee. Bathrooms are in a hallway as you enter the building. You have not yet entered the restaurant . It's ok but I would go back. There's a Cracker Barrel just over a overpass in... More

Du Kum Inn is off I44 on the service road, next to the Baymont Inn. They have a daily special, along with changing soups of the day. You can also get burgers, sandwiches and full meals. The onion rings are very good. Plan on sharing them. The desserts looked very good, but we were full.

We had their "Special" catfish which wasn't so special. Overcooked, breading was hard fish was mushy. Service was good and semi friendly. Wouldn't bother to stop again.

Probably the best buffet around the area. We stop in when we travel on 44.A lot to choose from and the food is fresh. They do a great business and there is a reason. Really feel like you get your monies worth. Recommended.

We stayed at the Baymont next door and went over for breakfast, based on a high recommendation from a local friend. We were basically ignored for 15 minutes. The waitress finally came and took our coffee order. She did not looked very thrilled to see us. She then proceeded to serve coffee to two large tables of local folks who... More

The food is good ,the service is a little slow.Its really busy.Its a little awkward as an outsider.As you are sitting there waiting ,everybody that comes in seems to know somebody or more in the restaurant..It is definetly where the locals eat.Its American cuisine ,name leads you to think otherwise
