We found a great little place to eat. A little
far afield, but worth the drive. Sue and Dennis Dymek are the owners,
who cheerily welcome you to their little restaurant. They have a varied
menu, with Iowa Black Angus steaks, buffalo burgers, and more.
But what we really love
is their weekly specials and their special gourmet dinners, usually
with wine pairings. Their weekly specials are either ethnic or
comfort dinners. For instance, this week it’s stuffed peppers.
They really know how to cook.
The other thing they do
really special is every four to six weeks they serve a special
gourmet dinner, usually with a wine pairing. For instance, their
upcoming Valentine’s Day
dinner will include Veal/Pork Terrine (Appetizer), Onion Soup, Hearts
of Romaine Salad, Prime Rib, Twice-Baked Potato, Broccoli with Hollandaise,
and Persian Lover’s Cake. Gourmet Dinners usually average $25
per person. Wine pairings not included.
We’ve been going
here awhile, and are never disappointed. Give it a try.
Hwy 62 East in Mountain Home, by the new Wal-Mart
Hours: M-F 11 to 9, Sa-Sun 11 to 10:30
We have only eaten here once, and we liked it!
The portions are large, the prices are quite reasonable. You get fresh
cooked vegetables with your entrees. The appetizers are excellent.
This place is sort of Mexican, or Southwestern themed. We loved the
way they grill their meat. Betty had their grilled chicken and shrimp,
and it was cooked to perfection with a hint of spicy. The only drawback
is it is very busy, and even though they have a non-smoking section,
Betty could still smell the smoke.

This restaurant has been
around for awhile, but we just started going to it regularly
this past year. We eat here all the time, especially when we’re short of time. You can be
in and out in 20 to 30 minutes, service is that quick. They never
rush you. The servers are pleasant and efficient. Not much English
is spoken here. The best Mexican food in town. They also have lots
of vegetarian entrees, and you can order a child’s portion
for less if you have a mini-appetite. We almost always order the
beef tacos with rice and beans. We like the soft tortillas. You have
to let them know if you want them this way, otherwise they come crispy.
The complementary chips and salsa are brought to your table almost
instantaneously, and are freshly made. The sauce is mildly zippy,
but you can ask for hotter if you like. Our grand-nephew Michael
Gelsomino, who is vegetarian, loves this place.
The Grapevine (Formerly Top Kat)
Hwy 5 (State Line)
Open Lunch and Dinner
11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Better known as the Top Kat before it reopened as The Grapevine,
our guests loved this place. It is the second closest to our resort,
and always had great food. And it looks like the tradition continues.
