Illinois outdoors: Eats on the Road

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I am still working on a project about eating on the road while roaming Illinois outdoors.

The photo above was taken just before the entire contents of this fried chicken platter was devourted last fall at Penny's Cafe in Iuka.

That's the kind of food I am talking about, home cooking. Or taco stands. Or Italian beef stands. Or BBQ joints. Or ice cream shops.

The last time I posted this, I got a bunch of good suggestions.

But I have still have a couple holes in reader suggestions or my personal experience.

Particularly in far southern Illinois around Cairo, Metropolis, that area. I just don't remember anything there that sticks in my mind.

Also in the northwest corner of Illinois, Galena and that area.

Now that I think about it, the Qunicy area too.

Post suggestions below or e-mail straycasts@sbcglobal.net.
