My daughter, who lived in Springfield for four years, couldn't believe she hadn't taken me to Maid-Rite before! After eating there on our way out of town, I couldn't believe she hadn't taken me there either! The loose meat sandwiches are unique and oh-so tasty! I loved the seasoning and Maid-Rite's own special mustard! We had ours with fries and Root Beer floats. Delicous! As the server was making our floats, she said, "The root beer is kind of foamy, so if there's not enough in there, come back and I'll give you some more," which we did, and she did! We saw some other diners having Maid-Rite horseshoes, which looked really good; but we had to have our Made-Rite sandwiches! The restaurant itself should never change its appearance or decor because it is iconic! It's the home of the "First and Fastest Drive-Thru in the Nation" since 1924. A visit here is definitely something to check off your bucket list!
