I'm planning an apres-Thanksgiving trek back to central Iowa to see the family, and hope to do a little chowhounding along the way. Planned stops include Smitty's for the "King Tenderloin" (thanks, Jane and Michael) and Big Daddy's for barbecue (I have sampled the "Check-Out Time" sauce, and have since forgiven my brother for the incineration of my taste buds as he sat and chortled).

Does anyone have suggestions for spots that might have been included in one of the Sterns' books, but weren't?
