Ok, maybe just because we had just landed in Iowa and were looking for the road-trip, Americana experience, but we enjoyed this little joint right off the highway. Hubby and I hot beef and hot turkey sandwiches, respectively. Smothered in gravy and loaded with mashed potatoes, it was like a fond childhood memory. We can't seem to get this in the West anymore, and our cholesterol levels do appreciate that. We each got the half order and it was plenty for us, consider that if you're not a big eater. So it was a welcome, warm treat. This has to be better than going to a chain restaurant you can get to anytime.

The waitress' were friendly. The food was good & the prices were reasonable. This was our 1st time to OJ's and the clientele must not be used to new faces. We sure were stared at from the rest of the diners.
