I realize this is very late to be asking for help but I'm taking my 80 year old mother on a road trip from North Missouri to East Liverpool Ohio next week and would like restaurant recommendations for Hannibal, MO; Danville, IL; Indianapolis, IN; Dayton/Springfield, OH; East Liverpool (Ha!) OH; Huntington, WV; Cincinnati, OH; Evansville, IN; and St. Louis, MO. I'm leaving for Missouri mid-day Monday so would appreciate any tips anyone can provide on such short notice.
My mother is not a very adventuresome eater so I'm looking for good meat-and-three, barbecue, Italian (she loves spaghetti and meatballs and pizza)and Mexican (the only ethnic foods she eats)and sandwich spots. By the way, we both love good breaded tenderloin sandwiches and I know that Illinois and Indiana are hotspots for this porcine treat.
I promise to offer Georgia and South Carolina tips on equally short notice in return. Thanks!!
