For the latest issue of Missouri Life, I took a look at Seymour, Missouri favorite Uncle Rooster’s Café:
After demolishing a storefront in 2004, Wayne and Bobbi Dunning took Wayne’s nickname, Rooster, and the vacant lot to open Uncle Rooster’s Café.
Serving up American delicacies, Uncle Rooster’s does more than just chicken, no matter what the name implies. The restaurant is known for its Chicago-style hot dogs and southwest Missouri-style Italian beef sandwiches.
However, Uncle Rooster’s also offers fried chicken, fish sandwiches, Reuben sandwiches, Philly cheesesteaks, and homemade barbecue pork sandwiches in addition to a variety of appetizers, soups, and salads. Bobbi is responsible for the desserts, made fresh daily from her mother’s 1940s recipes.
