    Cafe on the Route: Did Jesse James Rob a Bank at This Location?

    by basstbn Updated Feb 28, 2010

    Disclaimer: I have never eaten at the cafe. I know a number of people who have, and all gave good reports.

    I wanted to add this Cafe on the Route, so that visitors will know there is someplace to eat in town. In addition, I thought the wall mural itself to be worth viewing.

    The Jesse James part? Good question. It is known that a bank occupied this corner in 1876, but whether or not the James gang held it up is a matter of conjecture. Scattered across the midwest are numerous towns whose folklore includes an encounter with the James Gang - more banks than these famous outlaws could have possibly robbed.

    In 2007, Cafe on the Route was visited by Food Network star, Guy Fieri, for a segment of his hit show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

    Favorite Dish: Again - not on my experience, but Marci Penner's reports on the apple-smoked salmon, the nut-crusted catfish, and strawberry barbecued pork ribs make me wish for another opportunity to give this place a try.

  • Baxter Springs Smokehouse: Great BBQ

    by bigec Written May 12, 2006

    Saw this trailer parked in the Marvin's parking lot and decided to give the food a try. I ordered the Brisket Sandwich and it was very good. The only problem I encountered was that the trailer was not there one time when I was craving some BBQ. Hopefully I will catch them some other time

    Favorite Dish: the Brisket was very good
