On our move back to Chicago from Denver, we naturally passed through Iowa (what a fun experience!) and stopped at the Amana Colonies, which is often our stopping-off point for this trip. This time we noticed a new restaurant had opened – Maid-Rite. We’d both seen signs for Maid-Rite before so we figured we’d give it a shot.
The restaurant itself was pretty nice. It was a 50s diner style, pretty clean too with foam soap in the bathroom. We both ordered a Maid-Rite, without really being sure what it was. All we knew was that it was meat and, “Too good to be called a patty.”
What this meant, however, was that we both got our first ever loose meat sandwich. I mean, loose! Meat! Sandwich! Three words that shouldn’t be together, anywhere. The overall opinion of the sandwich was that it was pretty good, but it did a terrible number on our stomachs.
I don’t know if I ever need to have a loose meat sandwich ever again, although I think there’s a golden opportunity for a loose Boca Crumbles sandwich restaurant here. (It’d probably be better anyway.)
