Reuben Ruminations:

: This is a combination restaurant/BP gas station. It was a busy place, with a full parking lot (usually a good sign) and lots of elderly people seated under the fluorescent lights in the drop ceiling, none of whom seemed interested in the video games in the front. In retrospect, I suspect the place was busy just because there aren't a lot of other places to go in Cameron, Missouri. We were seated in a really small no-smoking section. The tabletop was damp when we sat down, which would seem to indicate that it was recently cleaned, but that doesn't explain why the table was slightly sticky near Mom's seat. (The restroom was pretty dirty too--looking like it had needed cleaned before the lunch rush--so no points for cleanliness.) Our drinks came out in red plastic Coca-Cola cups, but with no straws. Plates were china, utensils metal, paper napkins. The mustard potato salad was good. The sandwich was on a thin rye, lined with Swiss. The beef was lean and thinly sliced. The kraut was mild and the dressing rather light, but the blend was pretty good. Overall it was a decent meal, but the surroundings left a lot to be desired. ()
