Cooking, like taking a pop quiz and defusing a bomb on national television, is often a source of stress. Disarm your hunger with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of American fare and drinks at The Corn Patch Restaurant in Grimes.
The Corn Patch Restaurant warms midsections with a menu of house-made, comforting American cooking. A tangle of spaghetti noodles bathes in house-made meat sauce or marinara until each noodle soaks up tomato-y flavor ($10.95), and shrimp swim to tables deep-fried ($16.95) or baked ($17.25), depending on how much crispy-crunch diners desire. Patrons can anchor fork tines into an 18-ounce rib eye ($19.95) or try to polish off 18 ounces of pork ribs ($15.95) slathered in enough luscious barbecue sauce to compliment the meat without marching up to diners’ taste buds and demanding an audience with the uvula. Eight sandwiches ($7.95--$13.25) tote from plate to mouth such delectable protein servings as chicken breast, turkey, or pork tenderloin. Each meal arrives tableside with house-made potato soup simmered from a secret family recipe transcribed with invisible ink and washed down with a soft drink ($2.25) or beer ($3).
The Corn Patch Restaurant
As its name implies, The Corn Patch Restaurant celebrates the Heartland roots of American cuisine with a menu of pork chops, freshly breaded chicken, and hand-cut steaks prepared according to recipes known only to the chefs and family owners. The most famous of these is undoubtedly the creamy, house-made potato soup, which accompanies every meal only after diners sign an oath to never speculate on its secret recipe. To further honor their down-home roots, the owners have named some of their most popular dishes after friends and family, including such favorites as Lucy’s chicken breast and Dennie’s Famous Reuben.
