BUXTON, N.D. - There's a sandwich called "Pig" and a "Roasted Chicken Club" on the menu at the new Stacheboxx café on Buxton's main street. Don't look for an ordinary hamburger and French fries.
If you order a Coca Cola, it comes in an old-fashioned bottle. If you want water with your sandwich, you get the first bottle free.
The sandwich called Pig ($9.99) is made of roasted pork loin, bacon, ham, pineapple, Stacheboxx barbecue sauce and pepper mayo on a freshly baked hoagie bun.
My choice was a Denver Ham ($7.49) when I bounced down to Buxton with Sue Huus (SH), Donna Gillig (DG) and Sue Shaft (SS). We were seeking a drive in the country and a look at Buxton, which has become a thriving community.
We settled around one of a half dozen tables in the small café where we had a full view of the chef and the kitchen. Our server was Emma Sondrol of Reynolds, N.D., who also has her own baking business. The homemade, fresh chocolate chip cookie she gave us as we left was one of the very best I ever have eaten. It was not too large and had that fresh from the oven taste.
The grilled sandwiches are served with Stacheboxx pickles and a choice of seasoned homestyle French fries or ricotta-dill potato salad.
We tried four of the 13 sandwiches on the menu and found them interesting, different, rich and more than we could eat. So we took half of our sandwiches home for supper. The choice of SS was a special Italian Sausage sandwich on pita bread. SH ordered Island Chicken with Swiss cheese, ham, pineapple, StacheBoxx BBQ sauce and pepper mayo on a hoagie bun. DG took home half of her Denver ham with American cheese, sautéed peppers and onions on white bread.
This small café is located in the old Buxton Café building on Broadway, where you can watch railroad traffic across the way. As we drove around town after our lunch, we were amazed at the town's many new homes along with attractive, well-kept older houses.
LaBryer, who formerly lived in Kansas, has worked a variety of fast food places and small restaurants. He takes pride in his unique sandwich and salad place and features his own version of Canadian poutine.
And he has five different versions of chicken wings.
