“a piece of davenport history”
In 1978 we opened our first Machine Shed Restaurant on the outskirts of Davenport, IA. We had just 100 seats and we were all still pretty young and green, but we started with a powerful commitment. That was a five-word constitution: "Dedicated to the American Farmer." That dedication meant that we worked hard to have a restaurant that wasn't just 'farm themed' but would be something that farmers could be proud of. The Machine Shed has been featured on the Travel Channel's "Food Paradise" recognizing us as the "Best Breakfast in America." And yes, "Chocolate Covered Bacon" became a phenomonal hit when we served it at the Wisconsin State Fair and it was mentioned throughout the country on TV morning shows and the Tonight Show. The Krispy Kreme Cheeseburger also became a hit after the Shed debuted it at the Wisconsin State Fair, and the American Pickers came and 'picked' the Shed warehouses in Daveport in June of 2010. In October of 2010, famed artist Jim Shore visited the Des Moines Shed for a signing event where hundreds of people came to have their pieces signed by the artist.
