The K&B is on the south side of Eveleth right on 53. It had all the elements you look for in road food - sole-proprietorship, lack of corporate-dictated business model, local folks eating there and the owner wearing an apron. They even have car shows in the parking lot, which, given the cost of a tuck & roll interior, can make the enjoying the broasted chicken a bit challenging. I had the chicken with potatoes, slaw and toast. Could not be beat. This trip was already worth it.
By 8:00 we were on the island.
