Leasburg, MO Spring is in the air and Skippy’s is ramping up for a busy season. The new 30-foot sign beckons people who venture on Route 66, and the Gravel Bar covered patio opens in April.
Skippy’s Route 66 Restaurant, at the Onondaga Cave Exit 214 off I-44, provides what owner Skippy Sheleski, calls “Good Food for Good People.” Skippy and manager Denise Basham, and three other cooks prepare the good food. Skippy, Denise, and their employees provide the homey atmosphere and the heart and soul of the restaurant’s family feeling. The good people follow.
The Gravel Bar boasts its own custom stonework bar. Larger groups can reserve the space for special occasions without a room charge. The covered patio proved a great attraction for customers during the fall season, and Basham anticipates an even greater spring and summer this year. The Missouri Route 66 Association will hold their July meeting at Skippy’s.
