Road trip from Rockford, IL to Minocqua, WI-- Any notable stops along the way?

sloepoke | Jul 5, 201008:46 PM     2

Hi, I'm traveling in the slow lane on I 39 en route to family vacation in the North Woods next week with a 2-year old and my British husband, and want to know about any cool, corny, casual, kooky food stops we should be aware of on the ride up (goofy diners, the "world's best brats", a restaurant shaped like a rocket ship, etc.)? Is there any place we should especially look out for? Or even any place that is not super-memorable but will keep us out of a chain sandwich shop? Any recommendations seriously considered! Thanks in advance!
