Fun, nostalgic stop with a great general store addition. Loose meat sandwich was unusual and delicious. Nice variety on menu - great shakes.

My husband had seen the Food Network review of Maid-Rite. When we realized we were passing by the Maid Rite in Lamoni, we needed to stop to check it out. My husband was interested in the 'loose meat sandwich,' which apparently has a 'cult following'...More

3.5 is the right review number. The place itself, the very fun shop, the grounds and the people were delightful. I so wanted to give this a five star review. But the food was a solid three. Nothing bad, for sure, but nothing to write...More
