You Gotta Eat: Busy Corner

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

It’s back and this time… With more bite!

25 News has brought back You Gotta Eat,” one of our most popular franchises.

Morning anchor Semone Doughton takes her appetite to Goodfield for her very first You Gotta Eat.

We asked and you responded. Hands down, the first place many of you chose as my first restaurant to visit is the Busy Corner in Goodfield.

When I arrived and entered the doors, I knew immediately this was more than just a restaurant, it was a part of history for this community dating back to 1947.

But this popular hot spot wasn’t always located where it is now.

“So we were just down the corner actually on the corner of 117 and 150, so that’s kinda where it originally got its name “The Busy Corner,” said co-owner and general manager Derek Vollmer.

Now came the tough part…choosing a meal that would satisfy my morning appetite but not too pricey.

And with so many dishes to choose from… A Texas girl like myself had to order a steak cooked medium with hash browns and lightly cooked eggs with mushrooms and cheese. It was piping hot and tasted so good!

But that’s what everyone says about the food at the Busy Corner…if you don’t believe me, just listen to Norm Ricketts, who frequents this family themed restaurant every Thursday morning with friends. And believe me, he has his favorite dish.

“It’s a breakfast sandwich it’s ham, eggs and cheese on an English muffin,” said Ricketts.

While the food is what keeps the customers coming to the table, it’s also the family style environment they say makes the busy corner more than just your everyday restaurant.

“It’s a good restaurant. It’s nice, people here are friendly, wonderful waitresses, the owners real nice,” said Marilyn Andrews, another frequent customer.

But wait!  You can’t talk about the busy corner without mentioning the pies! There’s loads of them… 20 pies to choose from every day. All made fresh daily, right in the Busy Corner kitchen.

“We do a large majority of our business is pies. I would say roughly probably 20% is our pies. That’s a huge part of what we do and who we are,” said Vollmer.

Remember i mentioned the affordable pricing as one reason people keep coming back?

Well, now it’s time to put that to the test. So just how much did this breakfast fit for a queen cost me?

Under 20 bucks.

The Busy Corner in Goodfield is open 7-days a week. You can stop in Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. until p.m.; Saturdays from 6 a.m. until 9 p.m.; and Sundays from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m.
