June 21, 1999 was a big day for Fred and Donna Cook. After two years of work they turned a two story house into a family style restaurant. It's not hard to find. The sign out front says it all.; "Spice Rack and Chilli Parlour". I've been a customer since they first opened and have probably had nearly every item... More

If you are looking to eat at a restaurant that is not the typical franchise restaurant, this is your place. The menu selection is broad with something for everyone with reasonable prices. The walleye fish and the hamburger horseshoe were very tasty. The restaurant staff are very friendly. There are lots of wall décor to look at. My only issue... More

People should be standing in line at Cook's Spice Rack and Chili Co. on Friday nights. Five in our party and everyone come away happy! Wait staff were super! The off beat decor adds to the experience. It is a little out of the way, but most good things are.

The staff will also make you feel like you are at a family dinner. The food selection is broad and with the amount you are served... More

We have been going to Cook's Spice Rack for at least ten years. Once they know you, your drinks come to the table without even ordering. The menu ranges from breakfast items to dinner items. You can order anything on the menu anytime. I have had fried chicken, blue gill dinner, to hot dogs and chili at 9:00am before I... More

I don't care what BOS said. Cook's has the best chili I have eve eaten. If we take our out-of-town guests to one place, it is Cook's. Love the breakfast and love the people. Donna Cook and her family make you feel as if you are in their home. LOVE IT HERE!
