Right on Highway 175 in Eldora, Iowa, there is a little diner called Rite on 175. Since I live near Eldora, I've stopped there before for ice cream treats; their ice cream sandwiches are particularly refreshing on a hot day!
This June, we had to take a vehicle in to the tire shop next door. Since this diner was on my list of places to blog about, my brother Daniel (who had to take care of the tire), grandma Siripon Schunk (who is visiting for the summer from Nevada), and I decided to go out and have lunch together.
Daniel ordered a taco salad, the special of the day. I ordered a hot beef sandwich, and Grandma (Yai) ordered half a hot beef sandwich. Everything was affordable--average diner prices.
What really shocked me was how quickly everything was served! I am used to waiting a little while after I order. Some diners take enough time to kill a cow before serving sandwiches. This place was as fast or faster than McDonalds!
As a self-styled connoisseur of hot beef sandwiches, I would not rate this sandwich as good as the Wild Carrot's hot beef since the bread was ordinary (not as good quality) and everything was a pinch too salty. Despite the minor flaws, the sandwich was heavenly, and I will not hesitate to order hot beef again.
Daniel said his taco salad was good, and Yai was pleased with the hot beef as well. I am content if a restaurant is clean, but this diner was not just clean, it was spiffy! I liked the decor.
Rite on 175 is a place I'd definitely recommend if you want fast service, good food, and a pleasant atmosphere.
