Bellflower, CA


(Very friendly and personal service. They really chat with you. I belieeeve it's still family-owned, but not sure.
(They've moved from their other cute and quaint, old-school style location, and their new one is more modern and more elegant, I would say, but still very casual (and relaxed, very welcoming. They also have a nicely-sized patio area, which happens to be next to a small fountain. It's very pleasant and relaxing.)
My grandma lives in Bellflower and we visit her every year and we've never eaten here. I added it to my must try list. It sounds amazing!


My suggestion if you're in the Salt Lake City area is Moochies Meatballs and more for the best meatball sandwich I think I've ever eaten. Or if you're up for Ethiopian food then get yourself over to Mahinder's and get yourself some doro wat, siga tibs, and lots and lots of injera bread.

Lol, no one knows Bellflower!

And I don't think I've ever had anything even remotely Ethiopian, but I would try all of those things in a heartbeat.

In MN The Hubbell House in Mantorville, close to Rochester. It served as stagecoach room and boarding since before MN was a state. The guest book is rich in history. Old time classical supper club food with impeccable service and not a dud on the menu.

In Jordan, Suzette, unique French restaurant owned by a Cambodian refugee trained in Switzerland.

Amboy has the little Cottage Cafe, a repurposed vintage filling station, run by a German baker. Everything is locally sourced and tastes like it came from the world's best Grandma's kitchen. My favorite is her fresh raspberry bread pudding floating in clouds of whipped cream.

Little town of Rapidan by the dam where Laura's Paw hauled the grain to be ground in "Little House on the Prairie" you'll find the Dam Store -"Best food by a dam site." Not much choice there. Good, old-fashioned burgers, potato salad, enormous shakes and malts and an assortment of homemade pies so good that a congressman served them for his installation ceremony. Looks the same as it did in the '30s. Now on its third generation of miracle women who arise in the middle of the night to bake a semi-load of pies six days a week. You service will range from indifferent to surly. Part of the ambiance.

When you're good and you know it you don't have to smile. LOL

You'll have to eat somewhere betweeh Mpls and Seattle, so try La Minestra, in Pierre, South Dakota. A true Italian dining, not just a pretentious spaghetti house.


If on a more southerly route, there is the Livestock Auction Barn in Ericson, Nebraska (pop. 92). Except when an auction is in progress, it's only open for Sunday brunch, when families from surrounding counties congregate for hungry-farmer cuisine.

Thank you Everyone who answered so far!

For the people who are NOT naming a specific food for me to taste, because you are saying everything at a particular restaurant is good, would you mind naming something specific for me to try? I would hate to travel hundreds of miles to a different State to try a restaurant, but because I wasn't given a specific item to try I end up missing out on that establishment's BEST tasting dish!

Again thank you everyone for your recommendations and places keep them coming!
