The only thing I am sorry for after eating at the Grain Bin Restaurant today, is that I don't live closer! If I lived in a closer proximity to Chanute, Kansas...I would probably weigh 20-30 pounds more than I do now...and I would be a...regular patron several times a week. My wife and I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma and have been dog sitting our sons dog while he and his family were on vacation. He lives in Kansas City...so, we met him in Chanute today (half way between KC and Tulsa) and returned his dog to him. We travel "through" Chanute many times a year, but never stop for a meal. Today made it simple and easy to "try Chanute!" I checked Tripadvisor, and read the reviews of the local choices. After reading them, it seemed as if "The Grain Bin" was the best local choice. I must say, it was definitely the Right Choice. The Grain Bin is far from fancy. The Grain Bin is not easy to find as a person in transit, travelling the high speed highways of America...but, it is worth getting off the highway...and finding it. A hidden gem? Oh, absolutely! The kicker? The food is excellent. The service is wonderful. And, since it is a hidden gem, you'll basically only encounter "locals" who are friendly, know each other, and create a very warm energetic interaction among the diners. Personally, many of the people eating at the Grain Bin, stopped by and said "hi" to my wife and me, or acknowledged our presence with a nod or positive gesture as they left. I saw America at it's best today...and I really liked it! My wife and I have decided that we will now find time to stop in Chanute and find comfort and great food at the Grain Bin Restaurant!More

WARNING: This is a CASH ONLY Restaurant with an ATM on site. Highly recommend this if traveling through this area. That being said, On our first visit to this restaurant we got a taste first hand of Kansas hospitality. While we were waiting for our...meal a gentleman, who we found out is regular, stopped at our table and offered us a piece of homemade fudge he was handing out to the other locals there. That is what this place is all about, a long time locals hangout for good food and good people. The Menu is huge with a ton of choices for all meals. I have never had a bad Breakfast there. Nothing fancy but good large portions of what you ordered. The Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs is excellent.More

We all had the Belgium waffles. It was alright but the people were very friendly. Quick service. I would possibly try something other than the waffle

We will be coming back to this restaurant. I am very picky about my eggs and they came out just right as did the entire breakfast. Although they were pretty busy, our meals came pretty quickly and with a smile. The food was good and...the coffee was even better.More

We come here each year when we bring our RV here for service. They serve really delicious breakfasts! There is a wide variety of selections so everyone can get what they want. The portions are generous and the service is excellent. Highly recommend!

I eat here at least once every time I come to town. Sometimes twice. Best breakfast around and a pretty good lunch as well. Friendly service and your coffee cup is always kept full. Their kitchen churns out foods orders right and left so no...matter how busy they are, their is never much of a wait time for your order. Reasonably priced. They don’t take credit cards but they did finally put in am ATM. Living in the city, I very rarely carry cash.More

Great service! We stopped in to eat breakfast, and were served quickly. They serve breakfast all day, but if you aren’t in the mood for breakfast food then you can order from the other side of the menu. The prices were reasonable, and the restrooms...were clean. The decorations are really neat, including antique fire extinguisher bulbs! My one complaint is that they don’t accept credit cards.More
