Apple Barrel, Council Bluffs, IA

Apple Barrel on Urbanspoon

This place is in the Sapp Brothers Travel Center, which was remodeled a couple months ago. Not spectacular, but not bad.

My friend Ron and I hit Apple Barrel for dinner last night as it is very near the hotel we were staying at. They bread their own CFS there, and so that’s what I got. It was pretty good, about an 8 out of 10. It was a thin piece of meat and tenderized, and was fork-tender all the way. It was a touch on the over-cooked side, and had been pan-fried instead of deep-fried. It came with a decent sausage gravy and very good mashers. They have a small salad bar that comes with the meal as well; it has cottage cheese and peaches, which I really liked.

We finished off with dessert; Ron got a HUGE slice of cocoanut cream pie, and I got a HUGE slice of pumpkin, both very good.

Ron got a chicken tenders salad and liked it.

The iced tea was excellent, and service was fast and very friendly. My check was $18.48. It was fast, pleasant, and a decent amount of food. I would not at all mind going back.
