The Intertribal House of Frybread will open for business at 32 West Main Street in downtown Waukon this Saturday, October 3. Owners John and Turesa Miller got started by operating a small booth at Native American pow-wows for two years before upgrading to a food truck, and now their own restaurant. “Our love for the food we serve brought us to where we are,” they said. “We love the town and the people in this town. They have been so receptive to us.”
The Millers say there are many things that make their business unique, including the decor, their business philosophy and their food that they say is unique to this area. They serve a unique mixture of Native American and American dishes.
Knowing that people enjoy what they have to offer has been the most enjoyable aspect of running their own business, the Millers say, though getting things exactly how they want them and waiting for inspection have been the most challenging aspects of the experience. In the future, the Millers say they hope to maintain great quality and service and make their business a huge success.
John and Turesa came to Waukon from Postville. They were married in a Native American ceremony last September, which joined their two families together. They have 16 children in all - eight are adults and eight live at home with them, along with two dogs and seven cats, which are like members of the family.
The Intertribal House of Frybread will be open Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sundays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. They offer dine-in, carry-out or delivery services. For more information or to place an order, call 563-217-3025.
