“Maid Rite lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

My wife and I had lunch recently at this Maid Rite on our way to shop at the near by outlet mall. We are fortunate to live in a city with a Maid Rite, so we were looking forward to seeing what another location was like.

We both had the classic maid rite with everything, which means mustard, onion and pickle. We both also ordered the sweet potato fries.

The maid rites were just like we expected. Actually they were a bit more flavorful than our locan ones, and the loose meat seemed a slightly coarser grind. Excellent.

The sweet potato fries were excellent also. They were cut like typical French fries, using a sweet potato. The hot oil just starts to carmelize the sugars on the exterior, while the interior stay soft. The fries came with a dipping sauce that was just perfect for them.

“Not as good as the original”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Some how when they make a restaurant into a chain, they lose half the size & half the flavor. Still tasty, but disappointing to those of us who remembered the originals.

“What a fun place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Went with a group of gals. We went because they also had God Father's pizza. Great place to go with a group, and with people wanting all types of foods. Good food and large selection on the menu. Cute atmosphere! The staff was wonderful. They even took our picture as a group when we asked. I made a mess outside the door when leaving and they were kind enough to clean it up. They also have ice cream, floats.....and the usual dinner fare. We will be going back. I love to stop on my way through the colonies!

“A Good Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Maid-Rites are unique to Iowa and a fine example of Iowa food--tasty, a value, and a bit unique.
Clean and efficient.

“Good food and friendly staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

We ate here two nights when we stayed in this area. One night we had Maid-Rite sandwiches and the next night we had pizza and ice cream. Although both were food, I HIGHLY recommend their pizza!!!
