Second Street Emporium

Jim's Eats

September 12, 2014
Jim Krajewski ( ,

Nothing beats a nice dinner while out on the town. When I'm in downtown Webster City, I love to sit down and have a meal at Second Street Emporium.

The restaurant sports a seriously impressive menu. For a good lunch, I go for their large selection of salads, sandwiches, croissants, pitas and wraps. For dinner, my general indecisiveness is not helped by the huge amount of great meals they offer. Second Street Emporium serves pasta, pizza, mexican, and selections of chicken, shrimp and seafood dishes.

If you visit Second Street Emporium often, you might have noticed that I missed something on their menu. No, I didn't forget about their fantastic steaks. All of their steak dishes, from their filet mignon to their ribeye, are made with certified angus beef. The flavor is so noticeable, so memorable, that it's a great cure for dinner indecisiveness and an empty stomach.

As much as I love to sit down with some friends and a steak for dinner, it's not always an option. The hustle and bustle of life sometimes confines me to another night of snacks for dinner in the office. However, I recently found out that might not be true.

Candy and Scott Rector, owners of Second Street Emporium, recently told me about their "Meals on the Go" program.

On Mondays through Thursdays, people can call Second Street Emporium by 10 a.m. to order planned meals. Then, they can pick up their food at 2 p.m. or later in the day to bring home to their families or to get some extra work done over dinner like myself.

As he told me about the program, Scott Rector said it doesn't just aim to be a convenient way for people to pick up food. The meals are also crafted to be balanced and nutritious. Rather than picking up the same old fast food on a busy day, he invites community members to call in and try out a meal. On the first day I ordered, I received a pasta dish with

a side salad and a mozzarella breadstick. Scott Rector's invitation is one I would encourage people to take up.

Monthly schedules for Meals on the Go are available just inside the front door of the restaurant. Pints and quarts of soup are also available for purchase every day. To order, contact Second Street Emporium at (515) 832-3463.
