Always a must when we drive to Ottumwa to visit my Wife's family. Simple and delicious.

Don't let the small size or the out-of-the-way location fool you, Canteen Lunch is a true slice of Americana. a friendly staff and patrons, a simple menu, and a homey atmosphere make this the place to grab a bite and unlax from anything that's bugging you.

I absolutely love this place. I grew up in Ottumwa and eating at the Canteen is a wonderful memory.

Aw the Canteen. It makes me hungry for one of their famous loose beef meat sandwiches just seeing a picture of the building. I enjoy a Canteen every time I am visiting my sister Ruth Smith near Hedrick.

This is "THE" classic place to get a canteen burger in Ottumwa...... My parents took me there when I was a child over 30 years ago, and told us stories of eating there when THEY were kids. The food is better than excellent, the atmosphere is sizzling with down-home local character, and the prices are right on target. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
