What happens when a restaurant continues to serve home-cooked, made-to-order, fresh foods daily? Well, people come. And they return. And, they tell others. Owners Mark and Angie Smith of Smith’s Restaurant say their famous Giant Pork Tenderloin Sandwich tops the menu. A special process of cutting the meat, tenderizing, breading, and frying it to a golden brown makes it a local favorite. For smaller appetites, Smith’s signature sandwiches are available in half-orders. They’re not quite as big, but they’re just as tasty. Smith’s Restaurant also has full breakfast and dinner menus.

Antique lovers will enjoy the restaurant’s casual Americana décor that complements the family-friendly food. Mark and Angie advise customers to save room for homemade pie and cake, both made in the restaurant.

The restaurant is located about thirty miles north of Springfield, just off Highway 13 at Highway U. Check out the two additional locations—in Clinton at the intersection of Highways 7 and 13, and Highway 13 and US 54 in Collins.
