    Solsitce3 It's a small world I remember moving to Greenville w/ my 2 children in the 70's & seeing all the gum on the wall of the drivethru. Have been looking for the Maid-rites or a recipe ever since we moved back to Wisconsin!

    I've never heard of Maid Rite (all the variations sound so good!) but I've enjoyed reading all the comments and the many memories the sandwich brings to those of you lucky enough to have enjoyed one.

    Sandy, I've never heard of those sandwiches and since reading your post called an old friend who lives just outside Springfield. He has lived there for over 30 years and his wife is a native of Springfield. Neither has heard of those named sandwiches. Could you give more info. as to what else is included and in what types of restaurants they are served please?

    We just returned from our fifth trip to Hawaii and there I enjoy eating malasads, long rice, locomoco and of course the ubiquitous Spam!

    I live in Ohio and we have a Maid Rite restaurant in Greenville, Oh and they claim to be the original. Don't know how true it is but they've been there "since bully was a calf".

    I've never heard of Maid Rite, but used one of the above recipes last night. Not sure how it's supposed to taste! but my son and I both liked them. The meat kept falling out of the bun, it seemed a nice change from sloppy joes. Maybe next time I'll put some cheese on them.

    Maid-Rites were served with a spoon/fork just because the meat spilled out. I have a t-shirt from Tom & Rosanne's Loose Meat Cafe in Iowa.

    Here's what I did and they were great: for 1 lb of gr. beef, I cooked but not browned. Break it up really well. Drain. Then, I added 3 TBSP of hydrated onion flakes, 1/4 c of beef broth and 3 TBSP of water, S & P. Simmer until most of the liquid is gone. That's it! Pile the meat on buns with mustard, and dill pickle slices. Prepare to fix a second one. You'll want it. If cheese is put on the meat on the bun it's called a Cheese-Rite.

I was planning on stopping there to go to the KItchen Aid outlet. Now I know where I will go for lunch. MMMM! I lok forward to trying it. White Castle hamburgers are Yummy once in a while. I also used to eat them in college after the bars closed. They do seem to taste the best when you are drunk. I am years past that but I do stop in about once a year.
    Maid rites in Greenville,Oh are very popular and just a few blocks down the street from Kitchen Aid. At meal times the drive thru is back up out on the street. Enjoy your visit!

    We just had a new Maid-Rite diner open up in town. I think the owner is from Iowa. There use to be one in Rochester , but it closed down.

    The original Mid Rite was in Muscatine, Ia. William Angell was the founder. I used to live next to his widow, Bea. I now luve in Marshalltown where Taylor's Maid Rite ships sandwiches all over the country.

    Well I found a link to the official Maid-Rite corp.
    http://maid-rite.com/index.php

    I remember several places in Iowa calling their loose meat sandwiches maid rites and also taverns. These were not franchises. I didn't know there was a place called Maid Rite, it just seemed like a regional name for the loose meat sandwiches I knew as a sloppy joe. However at the site they list locations of franchises and there is one in Ohio listed at Piqua. I also saw a wikipedia listing with some of the history of it.

    P.S. I just happened across this old post as I was searching for something else.

    If you need to find a recipe and only know some of the ingredients then try Super Cook: http://www.supercook.com/

    I grew up in S. California, Del Taco had a Taco Burger. Quite delicious. Basically taco filling on a bun instead of a tortilla. It's loose meat and you had to be careful of the meat falling out. I like to eat sloppy joes with a fork. I think eating one of them like a sandwich would be really messy. Arn't these type sandwiches basically a maid rite?

    This is the quick recipe that my DH and I devised a few years ago. We enjoy it.

    Maid-Rite Sandwiches
    (Our Simple Version)

    Soak 2 tablespoons of dried onion flakes in 3 tablespoons (minimum) water.

    When rehydrated---15 or 20 minutes typically---combine in saucepan with ground chuck, approximately one pound, 1-1/2 teaspoons chicken soup base, one-cup water . This is the approximate amount of water. You will be evaporating most liquid. “Mush” well to aid in getting the meat into smaller pieces---as you would to make Cincinnati Chili.

    Cook over low or medium heat, stirring occasionally, until nearly all liquid is evaporated.

    Serve on buns or open-face over bread. (May serve plain or with fresh chopped onion and yellow mustard.)
