Legion Hut Grub

Who'd of ever thought that the best kept secret in Little Rock, when it comes to homestyle cooking, would be the American Legion Post over on Capitol Avenue? Promise to keep it to yourself and I'll let you in on it...

Unlike many of the cafes around, the MM Eberts American Legion Post #1 at 315 East Capitol doesn't have a regular rotation of dishes. That is, they don't necessarily have fried chicken on Tuesday and meat loaf on Thursday etc. But it's some of the best homestyle cooking I've had in years.

Yesterday I had salmon croquettes and they were big and hearty and delicious. The mashed potatoes are the real deal and quite creamy (as my daughter pointed out) and the green beans are a must taste. We've seen dishes such as chicken fried steak, b-b-q chicken, bacon wrapped chopped sirloin, and others. Good, wholesome and tasty.

I haven't tried it, but the salad looks good. The only thing I've had there that I wasn't totally thrilled with was the "Mexican" dishes. But it's easy to steer around them because there are always good choices every day. Good iced tea and the best part of all? $6.50 for a heapin' helpin' and a glass of tea. Hard to beat and highly recommended...

Call them at 372-2608 and have them email you the menu every day.
