Rest Tips Needed: Chi>StLouis>KC>DesMoines>Cedar
I'm driving through hog country and I need restaurant tips. Here's my route: Chicago > St. Louis > Columbia > KC > Des Moines > Cedar Rapids > Chicago
I have a long list of places to visit in KC, but I especially need help in the other places. Here's what I've got so far. I'm looking for both BBQ and hot dogs for books I'm writing. Photogenic places are especially nice.
- 17th St Bar & Grill, Murphysboro, IL
- Cozy Dog Drive In, Springfield, IL
- Blues Hog Cafe, Perry, MO near Columbia
- Hawgeyes BBQ, Ankeny IA near Des Moines
- Lum's in Peoria, IL
BTW, I'll be judging at the Great American Barbecue in KC. Any of you cooking or judging? I'd love to meet you.
Remember, no rules in the bedroom or kitchen,
