ROSEDALE, Ind. (WTHI) - The Fork in the Road Crew is back and this time they're looking for the best ribs in the Wabash Valley.
On their first day they drove north to Covered Bridge country where they found a little cafe with a lot of history and a tasty menu.
The Rock Run Café and Bakery in Rosedale, Ind. has been owned by the Hyatte family for about 31 years now, but its history goes back a lot further than that.
"The restaurant began, it goes back into the 20's and through the years it was a smaller place and went into a period of decline back in the 70's," said Joe Hyatte.
Enter movie star and famous cowboy Tex Terry who retired from Hollywood to come back home and rescue and remodel this little cafe.
The Hyatte family has added some of their own touches like a wood fired brick oven, a bigger dinning room, and an expanded menu like pizza, tenderloins, steaks, and ribs.
"We're kind of humble about everything we do, we are just trying really hard to do better every day and make everything tastier and give it better value," Hyatte said. "You know sometimes you hope for that and wish for that we've seen our popularity come up over the years so that's exciting."
Hyatte wouldn't share his secret recipe for the ribs, but he did tell us what he thinks makes the difference.
"The seasoning and the sauce, using a good rib and you know putting a good dry rub to us we do a good dry rub , we start off with that and then we slow roast them for about 7 hours," he said. "And then we finish them off in the brick oven and put our sauce on them."
But if you visit Rock Run Café and Bakery you won't catch the Hyatte family bragging.
"We don't sit around and say we think ours are the best, we think they are but the customers are the judge of that," said Hyatte.
