We live in Central Illinois, about half way in State. We travel to the Peoria area for very close friend visits. We do not go by Goodfield without a visit to the restaurant. We lived in this area quite a few years ago, when it was a small corner establishment Since, they have expanded into a... read more

This is the place to stop for a bite to eat off of Interstate 74. You can pick anything off of the menu....you won't be disappointed. Waitresses are very pleasant and quick. If you happen to have room for dessert...their pies are the best!

This is one place you don't want to miss. This place is worth driving out of your way to eat there. I love there selection especially the liver and onions. Don't forget to save room for pie. You only have over two dozen choices. You won't be disappointed.

Really nice restaurant on the side of Interstate I-74. Perfect for the traveler who wants something other than fast food. This is great local color. Service was outstanding and the selection on the menu was huge. And make sure you look at the pie case!! We really enjoyed our stop at Busy Corner.

My mother wanted to stop for lunch at Busy Corner on our way to Peoria. I have eaten there in the past during the week when lunch time is really busy, since it's the only restaurant in the area. While known primarily for their pies, lunch alone is good and is always consistent. Our server was also attentive, and made... More

This was a recommended stop as we traveled to visit family. We did stop and found the experience to be delightful. The place is a small town gem. Everyone seemed to know everyone else and the table next to us ordered, "our usual" and the waitress nodded and moved on! Our food was good, but it is the pie that... More

For the area, the food is above average but not great (but you can't expect much more around here). Homemade pies are awesome though, with a huge selection! Friendly service. Family oriented. A much nicer location than their original.

We were touring a historical home in the town of Bloomington, and as we were leaving, the man in charge of the visitor center asked where we were headed next. He told us not to miss the Busy Corner. We only had pie and coffee, but while sitting at the bar enjoying our pie, we watched the kitchen staff placing... More
