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.

Meathead, try Hickory Park BBQ in Ames Iowa, about 25 miles north of Des Moines. Great BBQ cooked the old fashioned way.
