Casual lunch in Kirksville, MO/Truman State?

I'm looking for a lunch place in Kirksville this Saturday for five-ish people. We're not picky eaters and I'm mostly just looking for something independent, local, non-chain, non-Panera. Between $10 and $15 per person is our ideal price range. Thanks in advance for your help!

  1. There aren't many good options in Kirksville in general, but here are a few ideas. For Mexican, try either Lapachanga or El Vaquerro. Both serve basicially the same items, but people tend to prefer one over the other. Il Spazio is a casual restaurant that serves a variety of options such as pizza, salads, a variety of meat-based entrees. Nothing too exotic or special, but it works. Pagliai's is a local pizza place that has been around a long time and is know for serving "ronzas" which to me are similar to calzones.

    I can't say that there are any good restaurants in Kirksville, just places that serve their purpose.
