It is right off the highway, everyone should stop and have a meal. Food is fantastic, service is great, great for your money. Cant rave enough about it. And we did't have any desert this time. Have to go back for desert.

I-74 travelers and locals (meaning anyone who lives within 30 minutes of Goodfield) - make it a point to get your butt here to enjoy some darn good food and DELICIOUS pies. This is a wholesome family restaurant, simple fixtures, large dining areas and a counter with a huge parking lot to accommodate the crowds. Prices are low compared to... More

I ate breakfast every weekend for six months while I was finishing my daughter's basement in congerville. Food was always great and waitresses always friendly. Lunches good also.

We visited Busy Corner for breakfast today. The place was busy, but we were quickly seated. The waitress was friendly and the service was quick. Daily specials and lots of pie in the display case to choose from. All the meals we saw looked very good. We had the breakfast which was typical breakfast fare.

My son-in-law and I were on our way to look at and possibly purchase a car in the nearby town of Congerville. When we turned off I-74 to get to Rt. 150 we immediately passed by this restaurant. The parking lot on all sides were completely full. This was about 9:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning. We were just amazed... More

I remember eating at Busy Corner when I was a child - when it was at the original location and before that location was expanded. I remember hamburger baskets actually in a red plastic basket and cherry RCs with the cherry added in. I've eaten there several times over the years, most recently a few weeks ago. The service was...

I was here on business and took business guests there on three different occasions. Great food, very friendly staff. I generally enjoy diners and traditional American fare quite a bit so this was a hidden gem for me.
