John’s Famous Stew

Iron kettles on wood-burning stoves brought Mother Dapa Strangeff’s stew to a burble in the late 1800s. At that time, she lived in Macedonia and prepared her hearty creations for her nine children, as well as for the farmhands on her family’s plot of land. Two of her sons immigrated to the United States in 1911, bringing with them the recipe for Mother Strangeff’s stew that would be so crucial to opening John's Famous Stew. More than 100 years later, the eatery is still going strong. The menu still features the namesake stew with varying levels of heat—mild, medium, or dragon’s-mouth-after-eating-a-jalapeño-popper—as well as black-angus burgers, sandwiches, and salads. The dessert selection showcases peach, blackberry, and apple cobblers, all of which are homemade—Mother Strangeff wouldn’t have it any other way.
