Erie – Horizons at Prairie Ridge
The Neosho County seat community of Erie, Kansas is a pleasant and clean little community. This riverside town is well kept and the people are friendly. One of the little community’s only real drawbacks is very limited amount of eating establishments. Food choices consist mostly of a bar, a gas station, a pizza and sandwich shop and a bowling alley. While none of the aforementioned places are bad, I can say with confidence that there is another restaurant in the community that stands out in the pork department.
Horizon’s at Prairie Ridge, as the name implies, is a restaurant overlooking the local golf course. At the suggestion of a friend, I wondered in over the lunch hour one summer day for a burger. I was pleasantly surprised to see one of my favorite pork delicacies on the menu and quickly decided that I had to come back. Fast forward to December, and my friend and I had the opportunity to return.
Although the cold weather kept us from eating on the patio and enjoying the lovely golf course view, the upscale interior provided a pleasant place to dine. We called ahead and ordered the pork wings (actually, a tender and delicious piece of meat from the shank). Only a handful of Kansas restaurants serve these tasty treats. (See the review of Taco Lucha in Manhattan for another.) Our pork wings were served up with sticky barbecue sauce and a side of amazing battered French fries. If you love pork like I do, you owe it to yourself to try some pork wings. You won’t be disappointed.
Until next time,
