Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments

The best food in Boone County. The owners are so gracious and hospitable. Every time we have company in from out of town we take them there and they absolutely love it.

Be sure and save room for desert, the pies and cheesecake are to die for.

I highly recomend this hospitable diner. They have great fried chicken and home made rolls. Everything was fresh prepared and was hot when they served you. Just great.

Mark and Laura Hooibrink started the Claysville Store, along with their three children, as a family project. It started as the kids selling Lemonade along the MKT Trail to make money and its grown from there. It is the best food in Boone County, and the best people running it. They are church going people who really live their beliefs. They train a new group of kids each year to help serve and to learn life. They do so well that Mark was chosen to speak at Graduation last year. Laura makes all the pies and cobbler (they don't go to Sams for it) and the great green beans. The best part is that Mark leaves the kitchen often to greet his customers which is rarely done by other places. You cannot go wrong at the Claysville Store. We love the store and the Hooibrinks. If you make a reservation look under Hooibrink, the store is not listed.

We stopped there last year for lunch when they stayed open for the day when the DNR Katy Trail ride went through. We had never had a chance before as it seemed our rides didn't coincide with when they were open. We were VERY happy we stopped. Excellent food, Mark had freshly grilled meats, and great conversation. I can see us now planning a ride to coincide with their hours so we can stop again.
