After 93 years, The Dew Drop Inn is still a favorite in Bloomsdale, Missouri. In a town of only 500, The Dew Drop and its sister restaurant, The Kozy Kitchen, see about 14,000 customers a month. Owner Cara Naeger bought The Kozy Kitchen in 2013 with brother RJ Clements and their mother, Dona Welker; Naeger, RJ and their brother, Eric Clements, bought The Dew Drop two years later.
The family renovated the 1897 building, which was originally a flour mill, and moved the two restaurants under one roof. Naeger’s husband, Judd, developed The Dew Drop's new menu, including a smashed burger with hand-cut fries, wings and the best-selling pulled pork nachos.
Don't miss the crispy pizzas, as well, like Thomas' Taste of Ste. Genevieve, with local Baetje Farms goat cheese and slices of Oberle Meats' pork and beef hot dog.
