The maidrites were very good. And the malts were exceptional. The service was very slow-only two people to take orders, cook and serve the tables.

They had one person that looked like he was in charge, The rest did seem to know or they didn't care about services to the customers. Wife asked for a diet soda, chocolate milk and a water, This person charged her for a milk shake, he had fixed the problem, but already charged the debit card, he said it will... More

Stopped here for a late lunch on our way to Chicago. We were the only ones in the restaurant. Our order was taken and brought to our table quickly. Sandwiches were very good and the fries were fresh and hot. Good lunch. We would eat here again.

They were quite busy but got our order correct and rhe meals delivered in a timely matter. They furnished "extras" without charge or complaint.

Food was good, but portions on fries was rather small (not like other Maid-Rites we've been to). It was hot, though and we were there on a chilly day so tasted good. Clean in the restaurant and always very well lit. I've had their pizza before and it was very good. All in all, a good place to stop.

Food wasn't that bad, but wasn't as good as I remember. The grease needed to be changed, but that's okay. Great service and cute deco.

This is actually a combination Maid-Rite and Godfather's Pizza. We ordered the meaty pizza and enjoyed it.

My husband grew up on these sandwiches. Unfortunately, we do not have a Maid Rite restaurant around our area. So, whenever we drive through the area, we go to get a maid rite loose meat sandwich. They are served wrapped up in waxed paper. They truly are loose meat. The meat falls out on the paper. That is why they... More

We really enjoy the Maid-Rites that taste just like they did in the 50's. Service is fast and you can do take out too. In addition they have Godfather's pizza in the same location. The prices are reasonable and the taste is great! They are. Located off I-80 at the 225 exit. Many travelers stop here for a bite to... More
