Repost of topic with specific question for this place. Other recommendations in the Springfield area also wanted!
We will be driving from KCI to Memphis and will be staying in Springfield for the night. I have done some searches and am coming up on the lean side for recomendations. I think an old Road Food favorite pick, Lamberts Cafe, Home of the Throwed Rolls, is within reach (Ozark, Mo. location.) When I looked at their web site, I saw they have 3 locations and welcome tour busses. Can that be good for a Chowhound looking for solid regional fare? Opinions on that, and recommendations for alternates gratefully appreciated. We are concentrating on BBQ in Memphis, then on for dogs and Italian beef in Chicago, and a myriad of favorites in KC later in the trip so favs other than BBQ would be appreciated. Thanks!
