Maid Rite

Has anybody ever had a Maid Rite from a small town in Southwest Ohio called Greenville. It is one of the tastiest sandwiches that i have aver had, and whenever i am in the area (visiting family) I make sure to make my way there and eat so many of them that i have trouble walking afterwards. They are kind of a mix between a hamburger and a sloppy joe. It is sweetened ground meat cooked in a double boiler and with beer, mustard, and of course some secret ingredients. It is slapped on a small bun with onions, pickles and more yellow mustard. I get mine with cheese, and they are served in white wax paper. I press mine before i eat it so that the meat stays in the bun better. They are so good.

    Maid-Rite is a midwestern chain headquartered in Iowa. I love them (grew up in Iowa) and wish there was one in the Chicago area.

    My wife who is an Iowan keeps telling me about them. She had them all the time as a kid at 4H meetings etc., she says they are a lot like sloppyjoes but if made right....way better. The beef used in these Maid Rites was from local farms and fresh.

    I keep forgetting to get them when I am up around Clear Lake/Mason City area, I can always remember to try Iowa Tenderloin's they have to be one of the best sandwiches (right after Egg Plant Parm.) in the World.

    A very similar sandwich is currently being discussed on the hamburger forum.

    Turns out the Maidrite website includes a list of new locations, one being in Lima, which is a lot closer to me, so I will head up there. Got maps, phone numbers, and hours of operation printed out, and will report back on this Maid-Rite as well as Kewpees in Lima and Crabills in Urbana

    There used to be a Maid Rite in St. Charles, Il. on Rte. 64 near Dunham Road. The only ones I see are the 2 locations in Peoria, Il. when we visit MIL. We go to the one on University for breakfast but the new one off War Memorial does not serve breakfast.

    The Maid-Rite in Greenville, OH has never been a part of any chain. It's been a stand alone business for the past 70 years and a roadfood institution though I suspect that it may have been inspired by the earlier maid rites in Iowa.

    "inspired" is a good description for the Greenville Maid-Rite.

    Easily the best roadfood find I have encountered in my short roadfood experience thus far....

    Did you carry on the tradition of leaving some gum behind?

    No, this was probably only 10 years ago in the L- shaped strip that houses Lin's Garden, Sushi King and the White Hen. I worked in downtown St. Charles, a friend worked off of Kirk and we would meet there for lunch.
