Normally when you think of convenience store food, old hotdogs on rollers and cheap low quality microwave burritos come to mind. Rarely do convenience stores and good barbeque go hand in hand. Except for when you’re talking about Lakeside Convenience, overlooking Waconda Lake in Glenn Elder, Kansas– it’s one of those rare treats.
This place looks like a typical gas station. In fact, nothing outside the building indicates the delicious food available inside. Had it not been for a tip from Kansas State University Extension Agent Sarah Molzahn, who covers this area of North Central Kansas, I would have never known about this hidden gem.
|Don’t let this disguise fool you- this is some good grub!|
Lakeside Convenience carries a good selection of barbecue supplies including smoking woods and delicious Head County sauces. These are the same sauces served with their pulled pork sandwiches.The also sell Luther’s Smokehouse jerky, the same good stuff covered by fellow blogger Mike.
They have a limited barbecue menu that includes wonderful pulled pork sandwiches seasoned with a homemade blend of spices and served on a butter toasted bun.During my recent visit, I chose seasoned fries for a side and was not disappointed.
|Trust me. It’s good.|
If you’re looking for something different or just something handy while out at the lake, you owe it to yourself to stop in. Just look for the fish out front.
Until next time, swine and dine!
