The breakfast is great and the portions are very, very generous. The biscuits and gravy are awesome.

I've been driving back and forth between St Louis and Springfield three or four times a year for the past 18 years and I always make a point of stopping at this litle gem of a dinner. Breakfast, lunch or dinner I've never had a bad meal here. It is always good and plentiful. Nothing fancy here, just standard american fare cooked from scratch as advertised.

We thought it would be fun to eat at this heavily bill-boarded place, so we pulled on in for lunch. I think it's been around 20 years since I walked into the smoking section of a restaurant. But that's what you get when you enter. Serious smoke. Then you have to walk to the other side for non-smoking, but of course you can still smell the smoke. All those pretty teenage girls serving food and getting gassed by second hand smoke all day! Oh, well.

The food was at very best mediocre. The famous pan-fried chicken was flavorless and dry. The mashed potatoes certainly did not look or taste "from scratch," and the green beans were from a can. My daughter's hamburger was tasteless and she actually said she preferred a McD's quarter pounder (!!?!?)

Whether it's from scratch doesn't matter if your scratch is bad to begin with.

Any time of day, the food at Cookin' from Scratch is always scrumptious, just like mom made. And they serve the best liver and onons around.
