Jayne Reilly, owner
525 27th Street (Old Highway 40)
Wilson, Kansas
Open 7:a.m. to 7:00 p.m.


Jayne Reilly started a small eatery and carryout business a number of years ago and it grew with such speed and local enthusiasm that she bought a large building next door and opened a restaurant. She continues to feature the homemade specialties that brought so many people to the door of her small shop…homemade bierocks, pies, jam and jellies, breakfast rolls, sandwiches, etc.

Made from Scratch is just as the name implies, and is located in the blue building on the highway west of the blinking light. It’s a popular place for home cooking where everything is “made from scratch”. It’s an area that accommodates large groups for parties and meetings.

She serves a noon buffet each day from 11:00 until 1:30 that is very popular among the locals. Tuesday she features Mexican food. On Saturday, her German buffet includes bierocks, kase noodles, green bean dumpling soup and other favorites. Sunday is panfried chicken buffet day with mashed potatoes, gravy, veggies and all the trimmings. A choice of several different kinds of pie she makes daily puts a finishing touch to her meals.

Her hamburgers are made from freshly ground beef and her steaks are fresh cuts, not frozen. Thursday night she is going to start serving chicken-fried steak, the Kansas Explorer way. She features steaks on Saturday night with a 16-ounce rib eye being among the most popular.

Jayne also does a very brisk catering and carryout business that is a fine enhancement to the Wilson area.


  1. Everything sounds yummy! I hope to eat dinner there when we are stopping for the night in September.

  2. I live in Salina and frequently make the 50 mile drive west to “Made From Scratch”. The meals are superbly prepared and are comfort food for me. Reminds me of my Mother’s cooking when I was 70 years younger. The best part are the pies. Three fingers deep slice (I should say SLAB) of Gooseberry pie or same thickness piece of Rhubarb or Strawberry/Rhubarb pie is to die for! Heated with a scoop of ice cream is absolute bliss. Friendly people serve you in the cleanest of surroundings at comfortable tables and serve you the finest in basic American food made with the finest ingredients. BAR NONE!
