Beary Tweet and Tasty along I-94

Posted:

Finding a place to eat in a small town can be tough.
Especially in a town of fewer than 800.
While many small town restaurants and bakeries have closed their doors-- the town of Steele keeps things cooking... and has cashed in on a particular "window" of opportunity.
Reporter Sarah Gustin makes a stop along I-94 for a taste of a seasonal business.

Chicken.
Burgers.
Ice Cream.
You name it--the Beary Tweet and Tasty Drive-In in Steele probably serves it.
(Melinda Strom / Beary Tweet and Tasty Drive-In Owner) "Our number one seller would be our broasted chicken. Number two would probably be our burgers. And everything else on the menu from our taco stuff to our loaded tators to our wraps and subs would probably be all equal."
This is Melinda Strom's 5th season cooking along I-94 in Steele.
From the end of the April to Labor Day, 7 days a week, 11-8 you'll find her here, in the kitchen.
She says more than half of her orders are done through the drive thru.
(Melinda Strom / Beary Tweet and Tasty Drive-In Owner) "We do have a lot of call in orders where they can come up to the drive up window and pick them up. the convince of that, so I would say at least 55% of our business is call in drive up orders."
This small town eatery isn't just for the locals. 
(Melinda Strom / Beary Tweet and Tasty Drive-In Owner) "We have a variety of customers. We have our locals, we have some trucks that this is their regular stop once a week, we have people that come out from Bismarck, Jamestown, Fessenden for our broasted chicken and for our wraps. And people off the highway, so we kinda see new faces everyday."
And with this much traffic from so many directions, it seems this to-go business... won't be going anywhere .. anytime soon.

Strom says Sunday is usually her busiest day.
