Name of Restaurant: Tractors Classic American Grill
Location of Restaurant: St. Joseph St., Perryville, MO
Date of Visit: May 12, 2007
My experience with Tractors was a bit different as I was actually a crafter outside of the restaurant during Mayfest 2007.
I went inside and placed a carry out order and was told it would be about twenty minutes. I expected this as they were extremely busy with the lunch crowd. I had to wait approximately ten minutes before I could place my order so I had some time to look around. The restaurant was nicely decorated and the ambiance was very nice and private for each table. I especially enjoyed the wall of photos of people with their tractors and that visitors can contribute their own photos if they want to.
We ordered two chicken strips meals and an appetizer of stuffed potato skins, and I went back to get them after about twenty-five minutes.
When I got back to my booth with the food, I opened up what turned out to be a napkin-less and utensil-less meal. I apologize if this comes across wrong, but isn’t it common sense to include utensils and napkins with a carry-out meal? Especially when the people serving us knew our situation? But as it was so busy and we were hungry, we didn’t bother going all the way back there for utensils and napkins.
But the food itself? The chicken strips left a little to be desired, they were not quite what we expected, but they were not bad, either. The stuffed potato skins? We loved them! There were a lot more in that container than we had expected there to be in an appetizer, it could have been a full meal for one person, in fact. There was an uneven number so we “fought” over the last one. ;-) They became the bigger part of our meal, actually, and neither of us finished our main courses. We didn’t even try our bread, however, it was mostly hard as a rock.
I’d love to give this place a second try, but for now three stars because the main courses weren’t that great and for the lack of service regarding utensils and napkins, etc.
