My cousins were telling me about this unique restaurant in the middle of a farm in Fults, Illinois. If you look for it, it is actually still in the bigger area of Waterloo but Rooster Hill Farm is set amidst cornfields.
It was a July 4th weekend. We thought we’d get there on time for their opening for the day so we could get a table. We were a little early so we made a pit stop at Maeystown, which I am going to blog about tomorrow.
We asked around if they knew if the restaurant would be open and someone assured us that it will be.
At about 11:30 we decided we’ll look around some more at the shops in Maeystown on our way home, it was time to go. The restaurant has only a very limited number of seats and they said their customers come all the way from St. Louis.
Their website highly suggested to make a reservation. Can one imagine driving all the way from St. Louis only to find out that you can’t get a table? They say they only cook so much orders in a day and when they ran out of food, they close. It does not matter what time of day.
But how about if they are closed for the day? Fortunately we came not too far and we enjoyed the drive. Besides there was Maeystown waiting to be explored.
So this is my entry for Sue’s challenge for the week, Unexpected.
Just one more place to discover again on my next visit and see what they are crowing about.
