COLUMnIsts  HOMEMADE CHEESE BREAD BEER BATTERED SHRIMP WITH BROASTED POTATO WEDGES Both Broasted Cod and Broasted Chicken are sold in Tubs and Combo Party Packs. There is always Pizza and Broasted Chicken on the buff et and usually a pasta dish or a casserole. Hamburgers are something special at Chad’s too. One- third pound burgers are cooked on a fl at top. You can order a plain burger or one of Chad’s masterpieces. A member of my tasting team really likes the Funk Burger. It is served with bacon, mozzarella and American cheese, onion rings, BBQ sauce and a side of Funk Sauce (whatever that is!). Other great sandwiches are the Flat Bread Chicken Sandwich with choice of crispy or grilled chicken and red onion, tomatoes, lettuce and melted mozzarella and cheddar cheese with either honey mustard or homemade ranch dressing. The Steak Sandwich is my favorite. A half- pound of chopped beef is placed inside slices of Texas Toast along with sautéed onions, mushrooms, green peppers and cheese. Chicken Strips, Beer Battered Shrimp and Broasted Chicken and Cod can be ordered in Baskets including French Fries and Cole Slaw. CHAD’s PIZZA AnD REstAURAnt 108 1 AvE W., DYERsvILLE, IA 52040 st 563-875-2483 • CHADsPIZZAROCKs.COM The Dinners are all splendid satisfying meals. I particularly enjoyed the Spaghetti Dinner with homemade tomato sauce and tasty garlic toast. The other dinners are Beer Battered Shrimp, Broasted Cod and Broasted Chicken. Here is a little tip: The dinners include your choice of potato (Natural Cut Fries, Beer Battered Fries, or Broasted Potato Wedges), Texas Toast and Soup and Salad bar and they are only one to two dollars more than the baskets.
