Katarina's Homestyle Cafe in Pilot Grove
Timdoas from Nashville, TN on 10/20/2022 04:24 PM:
I ate lunch here on the way from Windsor to New Franklin. Great food and portions for a hungry cyclist. i had a patty melt. I heard another cyclist who ordered chicken strips comment "its half a chicken" on the portion size. I recommend stopping here.

Sedalia to Booneville
Andrew from Dallas on 05/18/2021 08:07 PM:
Just FYI we rode from Sadelia to Boonville today Tuesday, May 18. We had a few muddy patches less than 10 feet long each. Very shallow mud just a little slippery at the worst. There is supposedly a rockslide at mile marker 218 but we did not have any obstructions on the trail there or anywhere. There was a small tree across the trail at one point soon after Pilot Grove that we easily rolled our bikes over. The state park website also mentioned a rough patch on the trail from mile marker 210 to 212 I believe but similarly we did not have any rough road. Had lunch at Katarina’s homestyle café . In summation, the trail condition was good to great to perfect.

Closed Sunday. The only place open in town on Sunday is the Casey’s convenience store with pizza and some sandwiches.

Katarina is an impressive young owner running a high quality cafe. Definitely worth the stop- the door is opposite the trail-side so don’t go past. Try the sweet potato fries with honey mustard.

Iowa Cyclist from Northeast Iowa on 10/19/2020 04:58 PM:
Adding our kudos to Katarina's cafe. We pulled in at 1:45 -- just before the 2pm closing. She fixed us delish grilled cheese and grilled ham & cheese sandwiches, sweet potato fries and some scrumptious chili. We sat outside and ate every morsel, and ready to go back on the trail. Don't miss Katarina's!

Hello. For those that have ridden thru, looking to understand what restaurants may still be open in Pilot Grove (and I'll likely ask about other towns as well) along the way. I see that Deon's has closed. What about Katrina's Home style Cafe? Still open, or has it closed down? I see a Casey's, but would prefer something besides a gas station


Deron from Boonville on 08/17/2020 09:44 PM:
Just rode to Pilot Grove this morning. If you are asking if Katrina's is still in business, they are.


Family Dollar has an assortment of (cold) foods as well that you can bring back to trail head to eat if Katrina's is not open when you come through. Not much, but something.


BikerBoy from Maryville, IL on 08/18/2020 11:25 AM:
It looks to me that Deon's is still open, just not on Mondays (according to their Facebook page). Maybe someone local can confirm?

JAS from Pilot Grove mo. on 09/07/2020 01:36 PM:
Deon's is open for lunch tell 2 pm but they are closed Sunday Monday and Tuesday no evening dinners Casey's open tell midnight.

Pat from Indiana from Greencastle, IN on 09/14/2020 02:34 PM:
Thanks all for the updated info on what's open and when. Still planning a West > East Sedalia to St. Charles ride early October.

The ladies working there were very friendly and they kept our glasses full of iced tea while we waited for a couple of the biggest cheeseburgers I've ever seen! My boys eat a lot of cheeseburgers and they both said they were among the best they've had! The chicken sandwich was tasty and so were the fries and tots. Didn't have room for dessert but they did offer to fill our water bottles with ice water! Nice touch!

Stopped here for lunch and glad we did. It is right off the trail. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. We had a fine lunch. Highly recommended.

OCtandem from OC, CA on 06/19/2018 01:59 PM:
Katerina's looked closed from the trail side, but it was open and very busy!

Paul Toigo from Kansas City MO on 06/22/2018 09:10 AM:
Katerina's? Open? When? I've been by it 4 times in the last month and it's always closed.

Lee from warrenton, MO on 06/22/2018 05:36 PM:
If you were coming from Boonville, you had a tough uphill ride and probably hungry. If you were going toward Boonville you had a nice coast while you digested your lunch.

Paul Toigo from Kansas City MO on 06/22/2018 11:39 PM:
Neither, I was coming from Speed.

Had lunch here on the way out and on the way back on my recent Katy Trail Tour. Lunch was good and dessert was even better. And 25 cents to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to one of their delicious homemade desserts. Yummy. Staff very attentive.

Paul Toigo from Kansas City MO on 06/05/2017 11:16 AM:
I've been by Katarina's a half a dozen times this year. The parking lot always has 1 car and the door is always bolted. What day and time where you there? Are you sure you don't have it confused with Deon's?

Our first stop on the Katy Trail and worth it! Very very friendly service. Yummy lunch followed by delicious berry cobbler and ice cream. Closed after lunch, so plan your trip to get there in time.

Stopped here for lunch and had the best cheeseburger and sweet potato fries. You forget how great a handmade cheeseburger can be compared to the stuff you get at fast food restaurants. Very friendly service.

Just ate there today--it's now Katerina's, as was previously mentioned. Was kinda hard to tell it was open, but I'm glad it was cause she made us the best breakfast sandwich I've ever eaten. And I've eaten a lot of breakfast sandwiches. Well worth a stop and very near the trail.

Scott from SW MO on 09/06/2015 04:16 AM:
Do you know the hours?

Ray (webmaster) on 09/06/2015 01:12 PM:
Thanks for posting this, I have changed the name in the Pilot Grove listings. Like Scott said, if anyone out there knows the hours, please let us know.

csc from Nashville, TN on 04/24/2015 07:57 PM:
I believe this is now called Katarina's. I rode up and down the street a couple of times looking for Becky's before I checked the address. Based on prior descriptions, though, it sounds like it's very similar. Enjoyed my grilled chicken salad and strawberry pie! Very friendly service.

Anonymous on 05/08/2015 12:35 PM:
You are correct. The name was changed a week before your visit, on the 18th of April.

lisa from barnhart, mo on 08/25/2014 03:16 PM:
Becky's is a nice well lit restaurant with really good food. There's seating outside if you choose to sit there. They only take cash or checks. This was a problem for us on the day we stopped in and ordered lunch. We tried to get cash from the ATM down the street but didn't have any luck. We told Becky's about our problem and wanted to pay for our sodas. Becky's said they already made our food and it was no problem. We were so appreciative and hungry. I would recommend them for the food and the people!

We were riding the Katy Trail and were so excited to find such a nice place that had such wonderful salads and fixed special items for our dieting friends. For us who weren't the coconut cream pie was the best. Don't let the burgers and cones name mislead you, they have everything.

RTS from Waukee, IA on 05/01/2014 03:46 PM:
If we can only day one long day trip what would you recommend the area we should experience on the trail?

Judi from St. Louis on 05/25/2011 11:06 AM:
We road the entire trail and the pot roast lunch with pie at Becky's was the best meal that we encountered all week. Highly recommended!

Pistolero45 from Columbia on 08/13/2011 10:15 PM:
We stopped here for lunch and the food was awesome. Plus the resturant is very clean, the prices are reasonable, and the service is friendly. Will definitely stop here again.

Brian L. from Wichita on 08/14/2011 11:58 AM:
Stopped there a couple years ago on a ride, admittedly because The Lunch Box (?) was closed. At Becky's, I had one of the best grilled chicken sandwiches I've eaten & some rhubarb pie (a la mode!) to die for! Good, friendly folks, too.

zbiker on 08/24/2011 11:33 AM:
As a local, I can attest to the quality of her food. Pies are alone worth a stop.

What Street from Kansas City, MO on 07/02/2012 11:49 AM:
Becky's also serves breakfast! They provide breakfast sandwiches and omelets (not on their menu) from 9:00 - 10:30. We had coffee and the egg, ham, and cheese sandwich. It hit the spot!

Tim from Raymore, MO on 07/22/2012 08:53 PM:
My wife and I just stopped in there three weeks ago. I had a flat tire about 2.5 miles north of Pilot Grove. Had a bad spare too so I took my wife's bike and rode back to Booneville to get the car. When I arrived back to Pilot Grove, my wife was sitting in Becky's with a cold water. We oedered lunch and Becky even had creamed peas and potatoes as a side. The food was awesome and the blackberry pie with ice cream was worth the stop alone. When you go through Pilot Grove it is a must stop!

Great place for lunch... the food was very good. I had the crispy chicken salad. Very nice little town.

Great place for lunch. Worth planning your ride to get there during the lunch hours. Save room for the homemade desserts, including peach ice cream in the summer if you're lucky.

We had lunch at Becky's and really enjoyed it. Everything was fresh and tasted great. Best fries and wonderful blackberry pie. They even refilled our camelbacks. Thanks!

Becky's is open Monday-Friday 9-2, and Saturday from 10-1:30. Seasonally, they are open Friday nights from 5-8.

Hope to see you soon!

Marvin Winston from Maumelle on 07/19/2008 06:34 PM:
Had lunch there today after riding from Sedalia. Food was great and service was even better. We had Burgers and Cones - pie looked good but no room.

MAH from Blue Springs, MO on 07/20/2008 09:19 AM:
Have stopped multiple times when going through Pilot Grove over lunch time. Food and service were always great. I know what you mean re no room for pie...but on one trip I just couldn't resist and had them package it to go and had it as a treat later that day.

Make sure you get to Pilot Grove before 3pm, most places to eat are closed. We were planing to eat at Beckys Burgers and Cones but ended up having to eat at the bar and grill.

Anonymous on 09/30/2007 08:25 AM:
I was hoping to eat there at lunch the other day but found them closed not sure if they are still open on a regular schedule.

Larry Erickson from Seattle, WA on 10/23/2007 08:24 PM:
We were there around noon on a Wednesday and the place was packed with what appeared to me mostly local folks. If they were closed for lunch, it must have been there one day off during the week -- Monday?

jck from Kansas City on 10/01/2005 09:35 PM:
If you are riding the Sedalia-Rocheport route, and are in Pilot Grove around lunch time. Be sure to check out Becky's Burgers & Cones. Is about 1 block off the trail. The best hamburgers, chicken salad sandwiches, and ice cream! Everything was wonderful.

Bruce from O'Fallon, IL on 09/06/2007 06:03 PM:
Looked like a nice place, but was closed over the Labor Day weekend, Saturday.

Brad Fry from Glendora, CA on 07/16/2007 07:41 PM:
We loved Becky's - a perfect lunchtime stop if you leave from Sedalia (headed north) in the morning. Be sure to have a slice of pie!

Mike and Leigh Ann from Kirkwood on 01/22/2006 10:22 PM:
The burgers are great at Becky's. The people in Pilot Grove are very friendly. A storm rolled in while we were eating at Becky's and a nice lady in the restaurant invited us to her house until the storm blew over!

Steve from Houston, TX on 06/20/2006 08:24 PM:
I think the name is Betsy's - anyway, that is what I wrote in my log. We had sandwiches that were very good. Local contractors and business men were there with the cyclists.
