PEORIA (Heart of Illinois ABC) - It’s a dream come true for two new restaurateurs.

“It was like one of those dreams that you had that you feel like you’re really in and I could not shake it,” co-owner Amber Woods said.

The Woods Country Kitchen is bringing new flavor to Dunlap in the form of soul food. The restaurant opened in September, housed inside the Eagle Square gas station.

“I just wanted to bring more, I guess you would say, flavor to this area,” Amber said.

The business is owned by Sterlyn and Amber Woods, a married couple. The two hold down the entire business themselves. Amber cooks while Sterlyn handles the customers.

Their menu is full of homemade foods. Amber describes it as comfort food you’d want someone else to cook for you. The current staples include catfish, wings and cheesesteak. They plan to add more soul food dishes once they get more equipment.

“The first thing that we are looking forward to implementing is soul food,” Sterlyn said. “To show the world that this country kitchen means country kitchen.”

The Woods Country Kitchen is located at 403 N. 4th St. in Dunlap and is open Monday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
