While in town for a wedding our friends to us to their "usual" place. I've been hearing about the Mexican food here from them for years. It was worth driving to MO from CO to try it! The staff was friendly and fun.

I recently moved out of the Trenton area, and one of the places I'll miss the most is Wild Onion. Pam Infraca, the owner, is a creative and energetic chef with new ideas every week. I love the weekly specials and recently tried the Huckleberry Deluxe, which was a hot Turkey sandwich with toasted cornbread slices in place of regular bread. I finished it with a fork and sticky fingers! There's always a free side with your reasonably priced entree and I recommend Pam's potato salad. (You'll always get a gigantic scoop!) The desserts are yummy but I often don't save room. It's open 9 to 2 most weekdays with occasional evenings (currently it's Fridays,) so call ahead if you're driving a distance. And bring your laptop: there's free wifi!

My daughter and I were passing through Trenton MO, and were hungry for lunch. Washington Street Food & Drink was just off the highway. Our server, Misty, was the highlight of our lunch. We ordered the Cajun Jack Chicken Sandwich and she even suggested her favorite additions to it. We never felt rushed as we took our time, and she stopped by often to check on us. Our sandwich was delicious! The chicken was perfectly grilled and seasoned and Misty's suggestion of sauteed mushrooms were a delicious accompaniment. The fries were hot and fresh. Our sandwich and fries were very reasonably priced. We had a great lunch, a good time and a nice break from our travels in a clean and friendly atmosphere. I look forward to stopping by again on our next trip through.

For a small town, China One Buffet puts out an excellent spread, with a good variety of both fried foods and vegetables. The waitress seemed distracted in giving service, but she was friendly and got the job done eventually. The cook kept the offerings fresh and hot.
Per the business card, buffet hours are: LUNCH --- 11 - 3:30 Mon - Sat; DINNER --- 3:30 - 9:30 Mon - Thu; 3:30 - 10 Fri - Sat; SUNDAY 11 - 9.
For take out, call 660-359-4500.

First time stopping at a Sonic. We were pulling a camper so we couldn't really "drive up" That being said it was cold and windy and we had to order from the picnic tables outside. Was a different experience with no place inside to eat. The food was very good and very fast. The staff was very nice and accommodating. I will definitely eat there again. I can get over the fact of eating outside. I believe that's the whole concept anyway!

We usually have delivery or buffet. It is clean the staff is fast and the food is served hot. It's a cheerful place to be on the week end and early lunches are nice within our budget.
Great crust. BUT no anchovies so you got a four rating.

This Subway always has fresh baked breads, and the vegetables always look fresh. They also seem to always have soups available unlike other Subway restaurants in the surrounding cities. (Milan or Unionville).
