Welcome to the Right Spice! Not real fancy…just real good food.

The Right Spice Story

The Right Spice first began serving to the public in December of 2002, when owners George Steinbach and Deanna Mallery partnered with the LaSalle VFW, operating the kitchen facilities and banquet hall at the Post.

In March of 2004, they purchased their own building and moved to the current location at 2102 4th Street, in downtown Peru. At the new location, The Right Spice was able to expand its business to offer catering services, and also offer a large seating capacity of up to 120 people.

With two separate dining rooms, The Right Spice is a great place to host an anniversary party, birthday party, rehearsal dinner or most any occasion.
