Still great! Westphalia Inn - Westphalia, Missouri

Mick Ruthven | Sep 30, 2009 06:26 AM

I was visiting family in Jefferson City and last Sunday night we ate at the Westphalia Inn in the small very German town of Westphalia a few miles southeast of Jefferson City. It has been there forever serving family style meals with fried chicken and country ham. I hadn't been there for probably 30 years. It has new owners and the food is at least as good as before, greaseless chicken pan fried in lard in a cast iron skillet (the way it's supposed to be) and Missouri country ham (similar to Smithfield country ham, but a somewhat different cure). All you can eat including mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans (cooked with ham), and slaw for $13 apiece.

Pics of the town. Notice the houses built right up to the sidewalk which my mother used to tell me was very German.
