Fresh apple pie? Check.

Homemade biscuits? Check.



Chalk for the "specials" board?

Uh oh.

"I forgot to pick up the smaller chalk, so I used sidewalk chalk from the grandkids," said Terry Pfister, Byron's newest business owner.

Perhaps a bit thicker than she'd like, the specials still read legibly, "chef salad and soft-shelled taco."

The restaurant, "Terry's on the Tracks," located at 309 Byron Ave. N. across from the Post Office, opened April 17, with operating hours of 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week.

"I've always wanted to own my own restaurant," Pfister said, taking a break from making pumpkin pie. "Everything has gotten so fast, and you don't know what you're eating anymore. At least here, you know what you're eating."

"Terry's" is open for breakfast lunch and dinner, with menu items ranging from biscuits and gravy to the chicken dumpling soup that's already a favorite.

Pfister said she prides herself on making everything from scratch, including homemade hamburger buns. She added that business has been good for just opening.

Last Thursday, for instance, members of Team R.E.D., Byron's running group, stopped by to see the inside of the restaurant.

"Adorable," one runner said.

As for Pfister, she continues to crank out three meals a day, in addition to whipping out espresso drinks and coming up with daily specials.

"We want to see what people like," Pfister said.

Maybe someday, she'll have time to buy smaller chalk.
