Saturday I was down near Passaic, MO showing one of our listings. A home for sale on 10 acres
, since we lowered the price we've bee
n getting a lot of interest! I had gotten pretty hungry and didn't want to roll on over the the 2011 Bates County Fair without filling up first.
The Filling Station had only been open for about 4 weeks so I was pretty eager to check it out! Man, did I ever make the right choice!The Filling Station serves locally raised corn-fed beef that is melt-in-your-mouth GOOD!
They've got quite a menu from great steaks, burgers and broasted chicken to sandwiches, burn ends and more kinds of fries than you can name!
I was a little short on cash so I kept to the sandwich portion of the menu and ordered up the prime rib sandwich and some good iced tea! I was so impressed I darn near ordered another one to go! Tender, flavorful, juicy and just about perfect! It was so good I called up a buddy I heard was headed to the Bates County Fair to see the Rodeo and told him to stop in too!
The Feedlot sits at the corner of Business 71 and F Hwy, you can reach them at 660-679-4363.
I'd really like to see this business thrive, the service was great, the food was fantastic and they got pictures of John Wayne on the wall! Can't get much better than that!
My buddy stopped in on his way to the Bates County Fair and had the same thing I did, he said "I think I inhaled it, that was good"! He also ordered the sweet potato fries which were also amazing!

BUTLER, Mo. - The Missouri State Highway Patrol says an autopsy has been scheduled for a Texas man who apparently shot and killed himself while being pursued by police in western Missouri.
The patrol said troopers were called to help Butler police with a vehicle pursuit in Bates County on Wednesday afternoon. The patrol said the suspect was being pursued after he reportedly left a convenience store without paying for gasoline.
The patrol said that during the pursuit the suspect displayed a handgun, and then died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot.
Patrol spokesman Collin Stosberg said the suspect was identified as 42-year-old Forrest Scott Smith of Houston, Texas. The autopsy is planned for Thursday in Jackson County.

The former president of Hume Bank in Bates County will go to prison for a fraud scheme that pushed the bank into insolvency.
Forty-year-old Jeffrey W. Thompson was sentenced Wednesday in federal court to six years, six months in prison without parole. He also was ordered to forfeit $300,000, or his home. He pleaded guilty last October.
Thompson admitted in his plea that for more than three years he covered up the fraud by lying to bank regulators about problem loans and altering bank records.
Due mostly to bad loans originated by Thompson, the bank was declared insolvent and closed in March 2008. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. insurance fund lost $4.3 million.
I found this article on UFO Digest website about UFO's in Bates County, but when I looked at the pictures I found they were actually located directly over the Butler, MO square.
The article mistakenly identified the town as Bates, MO but I recognized the Southside Cafe and other buildings on the Butler square.
The pictures they had of the UFO were great, they even had information in the story about being abducted "We were abducted in the fall of 2009"
They also claimed there were "very real very substantial beings not human, prowling about".I personally have never been abducted, but from what I hear about the probing it can be pretty unpleasant! I wasn't sure about this story until I met this fella walking the down Orange St. he was kind enough to let me capture his photograph and assured me they are not here to harm us! They were just checking things out here because they heard we had great places to eat, great deals on real estate and some kick ass rodeos! They said they found Butler when they tuned into KMOE on the radio in the UFO!
