Make sure to eat at Paula’s when passing through SEMO


 Paula’s Home Cooking, located in Lesterville, Mo., is on the “must eat at” list for locals and travelers through southeast Missouri.

“We were located in Centerville for a year before moving to Lesterville,” said Paula Henson, owner.

“We owned the grocery store, too, but decided to turn it into the restaurant because it’s just more fun.”

Henson ran the grocery store for 10 years, and before that she stayed home to raise her children.

 Before going in to the restaurant business, Henson did some catering on the side.

“I’ve always liked the food industry and it’s fun to see the same people and all the summer visitors,” said Henson.

According to Henson, everything she learned about cooking she learned in her home economics class in high school.

“That class taught me a lot of things,” said Henson.
