When dinner called, we headed to Oak Grove Restaurant in Star City, Indiana.

Jones Robotic Dairy owner Pam suggested Oak Grove Restaurant. She was right on target.

I love hearing the cross-table “hello” and “howdy” of locals as they greet each other and chit-chat in small Indiana town restaurants.

What I also love are good menus. Oak Grove Restaurant has a lot of yummy-sounding things. Tack on changing monthly and daily specials and you’ve got yourself variety.

Known for their chicken, my husband, Jeremy, wisely went with the chicken strips as did Kid #1. I got the Patty Melt. Ever since Lynn’s Restaurant glorious Patty Melt, I just can’t say no.

Waiting for our meal is always the hardest part with kids–until our server brought over coloring books and a whole bag of crayons! It was quickly shoved aside, however, when our steaming plates of goodness were set down before us.

Let me start off by saying that having to take pictures of food before we could dig in was particularly agonizing this go-around. Everything looked and smelled SO good.

I started with Kid #1, then my husband’s plate, and then my own. Kid #2 had something simple. Whatever it was now escapes me, but I do remember he ate all of his veggies and then asked for more–not exactly how it works when you go out to eat!

What purpose does dinner serve other than letting you get to the good stuff–homemade dessert! Of course we saved room for dessert at Oak Grove Restaurant in Star City, Indiana.

But that article will keep for a different day. I do have two words for you, however: “homemade” and “pie.”
