The Iowa Machine Shed Restaurant is good old-fashioned Midwest style cooking. Maybe some people go there for the folksy atmosphere and to see waitresses dressed in "hogwashers"--not me! This is delicious, home-style food that has real preparation in it. These are the meals you would've gotten if you walked home from school for lunch when you were a kid in Nebraska. We shared an enormous chicken pot pie with big pieces of veggies and chicken breast in a chicken gravy, and then ordered biscuits to soak up the sauce. There is an excellent chilled salad bar so you don't have to feel guilty about the carbs. Even though it's not Midwestern style, there is a scrumptious French onion soup on the menu which I highly recommend. I don't want to miss this restaurant when I drive through Iowa!
