“Are you looking for somewhere different in Springfield?”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

If you are looking to eat at a restaurant that is not the typical franchise restaurant, this is your place. The menu selection is broad with something for everyone with reasonable prices. The walleye fish and the hamburger horseshoe were very tasty. The restaurant staff are very friendly. There are lots of wall décor to look at. My only issue with this restaurant are the tables and chairs are very tightly packed together. You will feel like you are eating with strangers. Take the time to read all of the hot sauce labels in the lobby. The hot sauce brand names are hilarious.

“Friday Nights”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

People should be standing in line at Cook's Spice Rack and Chili Co. on Friday nights. Five in our party and everyone come away happy! Wait staff were super! The off beat decor adds to the experience. It is a little out of the way, but most good things are.

“Good place to stop.”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

If you are looking for a neighborhood eating stop this is the place to go. You will feel like you are eating at home except for having to cook, serve and clean up afterwards. The staff will also make you feel like you are at a family dinner. The food selection is broad and with the amount you are served you will not leave hungry. A local resident will probably see someone they know enjoying their meal. Before you leave make sure you check out the spices, rubs, and sauces for sale because this is the only place you will find unique products.

“Like Family”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We have been going to Cook's Spice Rack for at least ten years. Once they know you, your drinks come to the table without even ordering. The menu ranges from breakfast items to dinner items. You can order anything on the menu anytime. I have had fried chicken, blue gill dinner, to hot dogs and chili at 9:00am before I would go to work. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. They treat you like family. Great place to eat and meet friends.
