Seidels Back to the 50's Diner and Steakhouse

We started this business for my son Guy about three years ago with a party supply store. We sold ice cream and popcorn, which was great during the summer. I told my son, "We have to do something to pay rent this winter. Let's sell soup, chili, hot dogs, etc."

A friend of mine, Betty helped us make homemade soup, that went over good. Then another friend, Jim, showed us how to make his sandwiches.

Pretty soon, we outgrew our four little tables and had to move to a bigger place. It was then we went with a 50's theme. People loved it. They would walk in and say, "Boy this takes me back to the 50s," so that's what we named it.

Then, we had the other half of our building empty. So our son decided Helper needed its own steakhouse. So, here we are three years later, still working. Thanks to our friends, customers and good employees we'll hang in there for awhile longer. Come up and try our homemade cooking.

We are located 179 S. Main, Helper, 472-0999.

Marsha's Bakin & Sammich Shop

Hi! My name is Marsha Ellington. I own and operate Marsha's Home Bakin' & Sammich Shop at 69 So. Main Street in Helper. I have been in the food service business for 33 years.

I began cooking when I was 14 at the A&W Drive Inn. Since then I have worked in many facets of the industry. I managed a truck stop restaurant in 1992 and it was at that time that I taught myself how to make bread. I had one of those bread machines and for the life of me couldn't get it to work properly. So by trial and error, I learned the art of bread making. (I am still learning).

I owned and operated two full service restaurants. I made homemade buns, rolls and cinnamon rolls in the restaurant. I learned more bread recipes during that time.

I moved from Colorado to Helper in 2000. I cooked for the Heirloom Inn for two years before deciding to open my own place. Actually my husband Rufus and I thought it would be a good addition to Helper.

We make homemade breads, specialty breads, rolls, cinnamon rolls, cakes, pies, sammiches, soups, chili, and much more. I make EVERYTHING from scratch, so it has no preservatives or artificial anything.

We also do catering and are going to begin a supper special beginning in November. (Watch for that!) The restaurant business is a hard business, but can be very rewarding also. I have met many people in my years of cooking, and I wouldn't trade the experiences for anything. I have a very loyal following at my little shop in Helper and am very grateful for their business. For those of you who have yet to experience Marsha's, come on in! We would love to serve you.
