They might be new to Cadiz, but they are certainly not new to the food biz.
The Kountry Kettle, which has long been a Jewett mainstay, has now opened a second location in Cadiz. Of course, this means the Buds must put their investigative eating talents to work. (It's all for the greater good, folks!)
Located on East Main St., the eatery proudly offers a full menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day.
The lengthy breakfast menu includes various combinations of eggs, toast, hashbrowns, homefries, bacon and sausage. They also offer several varieties of omelets ranging from the basic egg and cheese to the Denver, made with four eggs, ham, cheddar and mozzarella, onions, peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms and hashbrowns. Now THAT is what the Buds call a loaded omelet! There are also breakfast sandwiches, French toast, pancakes, biscuits and gravy and much more to choose from.
The lunch/dinner menu has no fewer than 18 types of sandwiches, such as the hamburger, BLT, and hot roast beef with gravy; turkey and sirloin wraps; several salad options and homemade soups. Dinners at the Kountry Kettle include country ham steak, fish on the weekends, several types of chicken entrees, roast beef and shrimp. Naturally, a bevy of side items accompany this as well as pie for dessert, which is rumored to be delicious.
The Buds decided to tag team this one, ordering a few different items to share. Bud Kay took the reigns and ordered a turkey wrap, a small chef salad and the day's special: shrimp with fresh cut French fries.
The wrap, which the Buds thought was actually more of a flat bread, was loaded with turkey, cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato and mayo. Yumm-o! The sandwich was a good size - well worth the $5.25 - and VERY tasty. They would surely order this again.
The small chef salad, at $4.95, was actually not very small at all! Comprised of iceburg lettuce, topped with chopped green peppers and onions, tomato, ham, shredded cheeses and egg, it was exactly what the Buds expected, and really hit the spot, as they are always ready for a salad fix! They even offer hot bacon dressing for an additional .30, which the Buds wish they had noticed when ordering.
Last but not least, the Buds nibbled on the shrimp and fries. For less than 5 bucks, there was plenty of deep fried shrimp with cocktail sauce and a mound of fresh cut fries to satisfy the Buds. The fries were delicious - oh, how we love fresh cut fries!
When they were done, the Buds had full tummies and plenty left over to take back to work for the late afternoon snack, which should hold them over until they can make a return trip to try that hot bacon dressing. And of course the pie.
