Main Street Cafe, Durham, Kansas

We had lunch today at Main Street Cafe in downtown Durham, Kansas - thirty miles south of Abilene on K-15. It was every bit as good as last year - maybe a little better. Today's lunch specials were Bierocks or Homemade Sausage, mashed or baked potato, carrots or baked beans, and one trip salad bar for $7.25. My iced tea was $.75 and my rhubarb/raspberry pie set me back $2.25. My mother-in-law's ham and cheese sandwich came with a huge slice of ham for $3.40. The several homemade pies were all $2.25 per slice, except for peach which was $1.75. All soft drinks are $1.59.

Has anyone else eaten at Main Street Cafe? They are open Monday-Saturday from 6:30am-2:30pm and on Friday evenings from 5-8pm. The several dinner offerings are all $8.25 each.
