Serving Home-Cooked Meals Since 1961
Since 1961, our restaurant has been serving Sullivan, Missouri, and surrounding communities with the best home-cooked meals and friendliest service this side of the Mississippi.
Founded by the Krygiel family as Du Kum Inn, the restaurant has grown into an area landmark and neighborhood gathering place for diners of all ages. In 2017, our family purchased the restaurant with the goal of continuing to provide a family-friendly atmosphere, mouth-watering fares and camaraderie that can be hard to come by.
And while the name and menu have evolved, we still offer all your favorites—whether you love comfort food like our mama’s biscuits and gravy, or you’re feeling a juicy burger, pasta, or a lighter meal like soup and salad. Not to worry, we’ve got that and more!
Join Our Table
Our family has been enjoying meals here for generations, first at Du Kum Inn and now at DKI Homecookin’ & Steakhouse. Like so many, we have created memories and traditions that involve sharing a meal here. We know people love stopping by after football games, visiting for birthday celebrations, and even visiting from out of town, which is why we promise to continue the strong family traditions.
At the end of the day, our mission is simple. We will serve the community with delicious food, a hearty atmosphere, and the superb service our guests have come to know and trust.
Whether you’re an old friend or you’ve never given us a try, you can count on DKI Homecookin’ & Steakhouse for a relaxed, comfortable dining experience while you savor our tried-and-true homemade dishes. Whether you’re craving a familiar recipe that reminds you of your family dinners with your grandparents or you want to find a new favorite on our expanded menu, we’re happy to have you pull up a chair and join our table!
We use only the finest and freshest ingredients to create delicious and memorable meals. If you have an idea for a new dish or something you’d like to see on our menu, our staff and management always enjoy testing new recipes. We’d love to hear from you!
Meet Brennan Healey, General Manager
When you’re here, be sure to look for our General Manager, Brennan Healey. Brennan is from the state of California where he managed multiple restaurants. He and his wife Nikki, a Sullivan native, moved back to the area along with their daughter Henley. If you see him running with his husky, be sure to say hello!
For several decades, our team has enjoyed greeting new guests, welcoming old friends, and providing delicious food for the community. There’s always room at our table. We hope to see you soon!
We’ve Built a New Home
Sometimes change is good. DKI’s new location was completed in late June of 2022. We were so fortunate to partner with many local companies to create the new DKI Homecookin’ & Steakhouse, and we’re proud to support our community along the way. Our new location features the same great smells and mouthwatering tastes you expect, along with the friendly faces you already know and love. We’re excited to welcome you, and we hope you’ll feel right at home the moment you walk through the door.
We’re also introducing The Artisan—our family Café, Coffee, and Ice Cream Shoppe. Featuring separate operating hours, you’ll love the delicious, satisfying treats on our unique menu. Join us as we bring decades of family history into a bright future together.
