Sandy's Grill in Huxley, Iowa
My network of informants recently told me of a new roadside grill in Story County with a menu item titled the Hubcap Tenderloin. Checking out their social media accounts confirmed this was a place I needed to visit.
Location: 504 E 1st St in Huxley, just up highway 69 from Ankeny.
Directions: This is just a block east of the main drag through town between Ames and Huxley.
Online at: Website is HERE.
Price: $9.51 with a side of fries and a drink.
Also on the menu: Burgers and sandwiches make up most of the menu along with ice cream and desserts, and the macaroni and cheese is available as a side or main or even fried. The Wednesday special is Kumla.
Service: Its counter service with food brought to your table.
Final Thoughts: Its always nice to find a new place in a small town so close to Des Moines. Sandy's is much better than the Dairy Queen or whatever used to be in this building, but I still don't know what Kumla is. I've now eat along Highway 210 and found good homemade tenderloins in Woodward, Madrid, Slater, and Huxley. I may need to find one in Cambridge or Maxwell now to make my trek across this road complete.
