Do yourself a favor and eat in one of the locally-owned Swedish restaurants in town. It would be a shame to eat at Micky Ds, or Pizza Hut in Lindsborg. There have been some openings and closings of restaurants in town recently, so I'm not certain what is current, but we ate at The Cookery, 107 North Main, and enjoyed ourselves immensely. I wish I had written this sooner after our visit so I could remember more about the menu, but I remember having Swedish-style ham loaf, and I think Nancy had a variety plate so she could try several different items. The Swedish Crown has always been a well-known place to eat, but the city's web site does not currently list it. Another recommendation is lunch or pastries at the Courtyard Bakery, also on Main Street.
Quite possibly the most authentic Swedish food on offer outside the mother country can be found here Mon-Sat 11-9, Sun 10.30-8.
Favorite Dish: It's more than meatballs...how about pork medallions with new potatoes and sprigs of fresh dill? Herring, rye bread and other Swedish specialties all ask to be tasted.
The 4H club was selling food near the Swedish Pavillion to raise money for their club.
Favorite Dish: The 'Sloppy Dog'!!! Sloppy Joe mix on top of a hot dog. It is messy so eat it with a fork. For friends in other countries a 'sloppy joe' is made with ground beef cooked in a bbq sauce with chopped onion and tomatoes.
Swedish Crown in the little down town area.
Swedish meatballs, herring, ligonberries, and foods I can't pronounce were on the buffet.
Favorite Dish: Great buffet the day of the festival.
