“Absolutely Homemade Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

Traveling through Missouri we came upon the Du Kum Inn Family Restaurant in Sullivan, Missouri. My husband and I both tried the Country Fried Chicken and it was scrumptiously delicious and home made. One of the choices was a cucumber salad and it had to be the best sweet and sour cucumber salad I've ever eaten. I think I can duplicate the recipe...just wonderful and fresh. Also, their desserts were home made. My husband had peach pie and I had the bread pudding and it was the best bread pudding I've ever ever had and that is one of my favorite desserts so I've eaten plenty of it before. The coffee was amazing and the cup was never empty. We will stop in there again and maybe for lunch on the way back through on the way home. It was a local family restaurant and it seemed everyone in there knew each other. Those are the places that are fun and friendly to have a meal.

“Fried zucchini”

This restaurant is family owned and has been in the community for years. Their food is excellent and reasonably priced. I highly recommend the fried zucchini and for dessert the bread pudding.

This is a family owned & operated family restaurant that has been in business many years, generations down. Great food at very reasonable costs. Clean & friendly. Their bread pudding is to die for! Highly recommend this restaurant.
