Pie!!

This is a hidden gem (at least for out of towners) serves AMAZING homemade pies and great food at extremely reasonable prices. The only reason I didn't give this a five is because the floor needed cleaning, but this could have been the breakfast and lunch rush. Great griiled cheese, too.

We have eaten here twice with family. It is "THE" place for weekend breakfast among friends. I've been gone from the area for 45 Plus years so don't know many folks but my family from there talk with everybody. They all know each other. Just a nice thing to see folks socialize with friends. The staff all knows the folks... More

My wife and I were traveling along I-74 and needed gas and found this restaurant next to the Shell station just off the interstate. It has a very comfortable, traditional diner feel. The staff is very friendly and helpful while ordering. Our waitress was very attentive with refills and making sure we were ok throughout the meal. The menu is... More

My fiance and I were traveling to Indianapolis and on the way happened to stop at the Busy Corner for lunch. This place now a definite stop on our trips through that area. The fried chicken is wonderful and they have 30 kinds of pie! We stopped on the way back home and that meal was delicious too. Lots of... More

In the heart of Central Illinois, next to fields of corn and soybeans, this little unassuming restaurant deceptively hides the absolute deliciousness inside! Flavorful but simple fare entices businessmen, farmers, church groups, and families to sit a while and eat juicy baked chicken, crispy fried chicken, Falling off the bone roast beef, crisp salads, and daily specials. If you're not... More

The Busy Corner is just off the interstate and is a fantastic restaurant with consistently great service, consistent quality food including the pie. The restaurant and the employees are very nice. Kate was our waitress and she did a great job and was very funny ! We were seated immediately, and our food came out relatively quickly. Our drinks were... More

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.
