One of the great things about traveling to the midwest or anywhere for that matter is getting to go to some different eateries. There are several that are very midwest centered. We like Steak-n-Shake and stopped at one in Indiana and also ate at a Bob Evans on the way home in Chillicothe, Ohio. But my favorites that we managed to get to this vacation:

We had Giordano's Pizza with my sister Becky and her family (Thanks Joe for buying!)

My mouth is watering just looking at this pic. Go to for more info.

We went to a Rockford only favorite after church on Sunday called Beef-a-Roo. Beef, Ham and Turkey sandwiches, cheese fries and great shakes! Plus free after dinner mints! Try We went to the train themed one in Roscoe.

Patsy's parent's took us to Happy Joes we tried to take them to Culvers ( but they wouldn't let us pay. These are both great midwest restaurants that will never be in Roanoke during my lifetime! I had the best pumpkin spice frozen custard shake at Culvers. To die for my friends!

My dad bought some of the famous broasted chicken from a supermarket chain called Logli's and he did let us buy him a great gyro dinner at Tom and Jerry's. All this plus Thanksgiving it's a miracle I only gained 5 pounds! Maybe I lost it going our Black Friday with my brother-in-law Bill to the great midwestern man store Menards!
