CRESCO - Are you looking for a family-friendly, one-stop dining option and dessert to top it off?
Stop by The CONEction, located in the heart of downtown Cresco at 225 North Elm Street, for breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert. Restaurant owners Joe and Bailey Guyer are ready to serve you. Their toddler son, Liam, also frequently charms diners with a ready smile.
The restaurant now features menu boards outside for the public to peruse.
The Guyers work with local and regional organizations to provide fresh, home-cooked meals. Breakfasts include such favorites as eggs with Polashek’s bacon or pork rinds and French toast.
Lunch menu items include cheeseburgers, hamburgers, mushroom and swiss burgers, bacon cheeseburgers, smoked beef brisket, grilled cheese sandwiches, grilled hot ham and cheese sandwiches, BLTs, tuna melts, grilled chicken (Fridays) and open-face specialty burgers. Sides are Sidewinder fries, macaroni salad or potato salad.
Nightly specials are Thursdays and Fridays and feature BBQ ribs, ribeye steaks, two sides and dessert. Lobster is offered the second weekend of every month and pork chops are featured twice per month.
Bailey adds, “We’ll sometimes offer nightly specials on Saturdays if we have some left or if someone orders for Saturday.”
She noted The CONEction now offers free in-town delivery. Call or text 563-380-8271.
