You Gotta Eat- 2 Cousins on Main

Posted: Updated:
LEWISTOWN, Ill. -- They say food tastes better when you eat it with family.
That's especially true for cousins Ryan and Jason Westerfield.

Their love of a good cookout went from just a hobby to a full-fledged business.

"Everyone loved our food, so we kind of figured we could make some money on it," said Ryan.

They started mobile, with a catering business. It took off like wildfire.

"Very overwhelmed, I mean, we didn't really advertise or anything," Jason explained.

"It was just kind of word-of-mouth. People like good food"

About four months ago, they opened shop in Lewistown, serving their popular dishes in a laid-back, log cabin-style environment.

One of the most popular meals? The philly cheese steak. It's covered in seasoned waffle fries, peppers, onions, and melted pepper jack cheese.

It is incredibly indulgent, and the hearty portion is more than enough to fill you up long after lunch is over.

One thing's for sure- everything here is made with a lot of love, just like family would make it.

"I can cook for 500 people and not eat a thing, and just smile watching people eating it" said Jason.

"It just makes me feel good watching people enjoy their food."

2 Cousins on Main is located at 260 North Main Street in Lewistown.

It is open Tuesday through Sunday 10:30 am to 11 pm.
