“Great home cookin' and friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This restaurant apparently used to be a frequent stopping point for travelers until they built an overpass and it was no longer easily accessible. That is a real shame, because this place is worth a stop. The pork tenderloin sandwich was truly delicious: well-seasoned, big (my wife and I split one along with an order of excellent onion rings), and surprisingly light. It wasn't greasy at all! Everyone in my party was happy with their pie selection for dessert, except that I was disappointed by the Key Lime--which was recommended by our waitress. Other than that one minor slip up, the meal was great, reasonable prices, and very friendly and prompt service.

“WOW Pan fried chicken and FAST!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Stopped for lunch on the way out of town in Clinton, great food the fried chicken was excellant and because it is on special on Sudays they had it served up very quickly a very short wait. Home made roles were very light and fluffy. Friendly family restuarant, nothing fancy just good home cooking!

“Smiths at Collins, MO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We have always enjoyed eating at Smiths in Collins, MO.

This time I had a blackened Tenderloin that was awesome! There was a glare in my eyes from the windshield of a car in the parking lot and the hostess noticed it and stated that it was no problem to relocate to another table. I hate to bother anyone but it was blinding me and after she mentioned it the second time, I took her up on it.

I look forward to our next vist at Smiths in Collins, MO
