Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Hitching Post (Hartsburg)

I stayed at the Globe a couple weeks ago and found out after I arrived that unfortunately on Wednesdays (and Mon & Tue, too), the only place to get some grub is the bar. (I should have researched that more carefully & packed a sandwich from Rocheport or something.) Anyhoo, the bar has some +'s and -'s:
+: The gal tending bar was pretty friendly & helpful.
+: Their waffle fries are AWESOME! and you get a pretty big helping.
-: The music is head-throbbing loud and wafts out the open front door -- much to the annoyance, I assume, of this small community late at night.
-: It was terribly smokey, but I guess I'm not used to the bar scene.
-: A half-drunk customer got a wee bit too close as he encouraged me to sing along with him & the jukebox. *ick*

Pretty good hamburger & great waffle fries if you don't have any other choices. I'm told Dotty's is a can't-miss place, so I'll have to plan my next visit to Hartburg for Thu-Sun.

(I hope I'm commenting on the right business -- I assume there's only one bar in Hartburg.)

Oh Yea...the Hartsburg Emptys...had that happen last year after riding from Boonville..my Brother is a kinda what ya call a big guy and I also am not a tiny rider...so we had them whoomp up those 5 buck pizzas machine gun style.. and we were eating them faster then he could whoomp em..one after another after another..back at the Globe the 2nd floor was rocken and shaken all night ..we both had nitro heartburn all night. Would have given 100 bucks for 1 tum. Our next day ride back to Boonville was very difficult.. Note...Dotys cafe is super as we found out on a later trip...Dale Cannon says ...its all good.
