Local Eats...

Posted on October 4, 2012 at 2:01 PM by Dustin Hall

Lebanon has a few local dining establishments, and we will from time to time talk about different ones on this blog. Today we want to share our friend the Missouri Traveling Mom's experience at a couple of these places. Hopefully this will make you hungry enough to try them yourselves.

  Traveling Mom found Ms. Fern and her delicious homemade gravy at A Taste of Andy's. She said she was blown away by the food and the adorable Ms. Fern. While at A Taste of Andy's Ms. Fern suggested she have the "Gravy and Biscuits because her gravy had not come from a can."

Traveling Mom informs us, "This chick cannot turn down homemade gravy especially when it is made by someone just as adorable as my grandma is." We tend to agree with that thought, and if you do too we suggest you give A Taste of Andy's a try. It is located at 1430 S Jefferson.

Another place Traveling Mom stopped was Ollie’s BBQ & Steakhouse where along with BBQ (She calls amazing) she found the elusive Gooseberry Pie. Ollie's, as the name suggests, specializes in BBQ and has a full menu. According to Traveling Mom they have "every cut, sauce, and taste you can desire." She gives it a "lick smacking" rating.

She suggests getting the Sampler Platter as you get your choice of 3 meets, 2 sides. She of course reminds you to not skip out on some pie. Ollie’s BBQ & Steakhouse is located at 12940 Highway 64, which is two miles east of Bennett Spring State Park, and eight miles west of Lebanon.
