Still great! Westphalia Inn - Westphalia, Missouri
I was visiting family in Jefferson City and last Sunday night we ate at the Westphalia Inn in the small very German town of Westphalia a few miles southeast of Jefferson City. It has been there forever serving family style meals with fried chicken and country ham. I hadn't been there for probably 30 years. It has new owners and the food is at least as good as before, greaseless chicken pan fried in lard in a cast iron skillet (the way it's supposed to be) and Missouri country ham (similar to Smithfield country ham, but a somewhat different cure). All you can eat including mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans (cooked with ham), and slaw for $13 apiece.
Pics of the town. Notice the houses built right up to the sidewalk which my mother used to tell me was very German.
Double thanks. Did you go wekick? We went yesterday. Beautiful drive and some of the best Chicken I have ever had. I did not care much for the other two meats that the waitress gave me a taste of.
Enjoyed it though alot.
Almost went on Saturday for lunch and I am glad I double checked the web site. Only on Sundays for lunch.
We had unexpected company this weekend. We had to go late Sunday afternoon to Columbia but ended up at Glenn's in Boonville. They have a family style dinner on Sundays too, and we had the fried chicken. It was really good and a little spicy. Good mashed potatoes and gravy too. We will be going that way twice in the next 2 weeks but not at the right time. I'll have to work on that.
