In January, Gut Check noticed that something called the Horseshoe House was planning to open at 6100 Delmar Boulevard, the former home of Modai Sushi Lounge. Well, last week the Horseshoe House -- or, as it also calls itself, H Squared Horseshoe & Hookah House -- opened.

Being a Midwest transplant, and having never visited Springfield, Illinois, I had no idea until now that a horseshoe is a kind of sandwich. Specifically, the horseshoe is an open-faced sandwich, with meat served on Texas toast and topped with French fries and cheese sauce.

The Horseshoe House serves several variations of horseshoes: hamburger, turkey burger, fried chicken and veggie burger, among others. The restaurant also offers loose-meat sandwiches in the tradition of Maid-Rite. The menu also includes nachos, wings, hot dogs and dessert. All the menu items I saw are under $10.

The Horseshoe House is open 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Sun.-Tue. and 11 a.m.-1 a.m. Wed.-Sat. Call 314-862-6700 for more info.
