Restaurant Built Inside Two Grain Bins
What's unique about the Latham, Ill., establishment is that it was built from two 36-ft. dia. grain bins. Opened last October, the restaurant is located about 100 ft. west of the original Korn Krib restaurant which was built in the late 1940's.
Owners Greg and Connie Burgett relocated to expand the parking area for the newer, bigger restaurant.
"The original establishment was built out of two wooden 24-ft. dia. grain bins. It sat 55 or 60 people, whereas the new restaurant seats about 175," says kitchen manager Jim Riley. "The bins are joined by a 22 by 36-ft. lounge in the middle and the kitchen is at the rear. Curtains in both the lounge and dining areas are seed sacks."
Known for its home-style cooking and fantastic pies, the Korn Krib draws rural families from across central Illinois.
