My husband and I stopped by Cabbage Roll after reading all the great trip advisor reviews. We had cabbage rolls which were so tasty with red cabbage and German potato salad. Great mix of flavors with just the right amount of seasoning. Wish we could be around for Friday nite buffet specials. Monday-Friday daily hours are 9-2pm and their Friday... More

My husband and I get to eat here once a year when we are in St. Joseph for Chiefs training camp, and it is definitely a highlight of the trip. Great authentic German food for a great price, delicious pies and cheesecake, and the friendliest, most efficient service anywhere! We would be eating here so often if we lived in... More

This has been a staple for the past 10 years or so. With the Cabbage Roll not being open everyday/night, it truly is a treat when I get the chance to go and enjoy some of the most amazing German food this town has to offer!! If you enjoy trying new things and have a passion for testing your pallet,... More

My 16 year old son and I stopped at the Cabbage Roll in St. Joseph on Day 1 of a 12 day driving trip around the western states. It is a great little slice of Americana, with a distinct German slant. I had the Cabbage Rolls (it is named for this dish, right) with sides of red cabbage and roasted... More

It's been two years since my last visit to St. Joe, and the Cabbage Roll remained on our list of places to go once again. My cabbage roll dinner, with sweet and sour red cabbage, was as delicious now as it has been every time I go to this restaurant. Because it's made fresh, this type of home style (German)... More

Great to see the 3 of you in again. Thought with your mom and dad being gone that would be your last trips to St. Joe. So glad you will still be coming back for family gatherings. Have a good summer--will see you again soon. Sincerely Yours Andy & Larry More

Stopped for lunch on way to Jesse James home where he was assassinated. Service is fast & friendly. I ordered cabbage rolls, fried potatoes with red cabbage. Fantastic. Loved every bite. Wife ordered lunch special cheeseburger with fries. She was very pleased.
