One of my husband's favorites. They are known for their sky-high pies.

The Chrystal Cafe has been there for over 50 years. It's a standard classic midwestern truck stop. No frills , no fancy food. Service is okay but slow when they're busy. There's no real competition nearby so they do okay.

This was a stop made out of necessity. My husband is an over the road truck driver and was picking a load up I. The area. I tried to justify the poor service for the late time 10:30 pm, but it is inexcusable that a person has to walk into the kitchen area to get a servers attention. The chicken strips with the kids meal was severed with tartar sauce. I had chicken soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. The grilled cheese was okay, but I have made better in my own home for less then a dollar while the one here $4.09 for just the sandwich. The chicken soup was very salty and tasted as if was made from bullion cubes. My spouse ordered the beef soup and had the same issue. By far this restaurant is one of the worst places I have been in. I will say the establishment was clean, if the service would gave been friendly or the prices were more reasonable I could somewhat recommend the dinner, but in this case I would just keep trucking
