We are known as the ‘dessert people’ at Uncle Rooster’s Restaurant in Seymour MO. We’ve long been admirers of Bobbi Dunning’s fabulous desserts, especially the cheesecakes. Recently we indulged in the Snickerbar cheesecake. Today, we left that for others to enjoy and tried the Chocolate-Strawberry cheesecake. Bobbi makes these from scratch and they are to delightful to describe in print! We were a little smarter this time — we had one order placed in a go-box and shared the other. The go-box piece is in the frig and Richard is outside — I wonder if any will be left by the time he comes in!
We try to eat ‘healthy’ when we go to Uncle Rooster’s, adding some ‘real food’ from the menu to our dessert order. Richard never misses a chance to get some of the specially seasoned mashed potatoes with chicken gravy as a solitary side if necessary. I’m partial to the Chicago Dog — one of the first options offered by Uncle Rooster’s when the doors first opened in Seymour. Not your ‘budget’ beast, this dog is a Vienna sausage with all of the Chicago Dog accoutrements you would expect. Maybe for a vegetable, I’ll add some of the excellent sweet potato fries.
We know how fortunate we are to have a good place to eat with friendly, warm atmosphere, plenty of space and excellent menu choices — Uncle Rooster’s in Seymour, MO. I like to cook and we’re busy around our own projects; we don’t eat out often. Experimenting with different places can be a small form of entertainment and certainly has shown us that we do know a good thing when we taste it. Uncle Roosters will continue to be a favorite. Diners can call in orders to go or stop and enjoy some chatter with the wait staff while their order is being prepared. There is a menu at the website, Uncle Roosters,com. Happy diners can leave comments and join the fun at Facebook: Uncle Rooster’s on Facebook
More than super tasty food!
The decor at Uncle Roosters features charming and certain conversation. There are crafts created by local people which make excellent souvenirs of your visit. There is a mural around the walls of the larger dining room depicting an historic time for the property when an apple orchard surrounded the buildings.
