Ok, so we're new to Missouri, and I'm on a 'Mission From God' to find restaurants that offer 'Fried Pickles' on their menus.

We were first introduced to these wonderful appetizers during a visit to North Carolina, and I immediately fell in love with them. They are similar to Fried Zucchini or Fried Mushrooms, etc.. They are battered & fried and ya just dip 'em in some Ranch Dressing or other sauce of your choice, and they are TO DIE FOR!!! But they HAVE to be Dill.

We've only been in MO for 3 weeks, but I did find 1 place that offers them. It's the 'Maple Street Grill & Saloon' (http://maplestreetgrill.net/default.aspx - broken link) in Buffalo, MO. It's a decent sized restaurant with a Western feel to it. It's got a full bar too....for those who partake.

Does anyone else know of where one might find 'Fried Pickles'??? If so, please post the information here. That way, we'll all know. And for those of you who haven't ever tried 'Fried Pickles', give it a try...you just might like 'em.

To those of you here that are Restaurant Owners or Managers...PLEASE consider adding them to your menu. If you serve fried items, the only additional cost will be the cost of the sliced pickles. You never know...they just might be a big hit.

Thanks for reading. I hope to hear good news.

Happy Eating,
Boof

PS: I have NO affiliation to the above named restaurant, and, I posted this thread to the MO forum since MO is where my search if focused. Admin: If this was incorrect, please let me know. Thx

Check out Missouri Restaurants for Dining in Missouri for menus & listings of various areas.

I can't stand pickles, fried or otherwise, or for that matter okra, mushrooms, zucchini, or... , but do recall seeing them at brew pubs in Springfield and in Cape Girardeau, and in a restaurant in the Bonne Terre area [where lived for few years]. For example, using the above site:
Springfield Brewing Company Restaurant for Dining in Springfield, Missouri (http://www.restauranteur.com/springfieldbrewco/index.htm - broken link)

Thanks for the tip on Bandana's. I'll check it out. It'll be interesting to compare.

As always, johnny on the spot with good info. I'll check out the links and see what I can come up with. That's great!!! Thank you for giving me a starting point.....most helpful indeed.

2beamissourian,
If you'll just give me your address, I'll be right over. I'll bring the fixin's and your DH can show me how he does it. hehehe It never would have occurred to me that Sonic might offer them. We have one in town...next time I'm out, I'll stop by for a gander at the menu. Thanks

Glad to hear you're the adventurous type. Let me know what you think of 'em. And don't forget to tell me where you found them.

Thanks to all of you. Hopefully we'll have more people chime in and then it'll be time for a Road Trip!!! Woooo Hoooo!!!

Until Next Time,
Boof

Fat and Happy has them, on North Main Street in Joplin. For those on a health kick, try the fried broccoli as well! (doused in the same batter and artery-clogging fry oil). MMMM MMMM GOOD!

I haven't been online here in a few days, and my friend in CA said you got to go online and check the fried pickle thread.

You can come visit the little downtown Joe's Diner in Strafford. It is a small mom and pop kinda place. Not sure of the street it is on, but it is located at the end of Strafford's football / baseball fields. Take exit 88 from I44, go south to first street on right, just before the gas station and it will be there on your right. (I sound like a true Missourian, never knowing the street name, but give a landmark) ;o)

They have a small menu for food and they have great ice cream to go with the pickles. My family go and get our shake of choice, deep fried pickles w/ranch and french fries. My daughter doesn't like the pickles. For the rest of us, they are MMMMmmmmmm GOOD!

Wow, that's fantastic news, G4inMO!!! We're relocating to the Marshfield area, so we'll be right down the road from there, and we'll be able to go all the time. Those 'Mom & Pop' places are usually the best places, and we'll be able to get Ice Cream afterwards....what a deal!!! Thank you ever so much. Thank your friend for me too, for alerting you to the thread. I'm going to have to take extra Lecithin to keep all that grease from clogging my arteries. hehehehehe

Thanks for the directions too. It looks like I'd fit right in in the direction department.... I go by landmarks too. To be honest with you, since I left CA, I don't know North from South from East to West. LOLOLOL

Regards Always,
Boof
