On the first night of my cross country sojourn, I'll be stopping someplace between the 2 cities, probably after 7 p.m. I've been going over the midwest chowhound board to see where I should eat, but nothing seems a clear cut winner. Ideally the place would be near the interstate, easy to find, not part of a chain, and downright delicious.
I know it's asking a lot, but if anyone knows of a place, it's fellow Chowhounders.
Oh, and if there's any chance of one of those midwestern pork tenderloin sandwiches, I'd be thrilled to try one.
