Roadtrip: Dallas to Saint Paul

soccermom13 | Mar 14, 2010 05:05 PM

I won't have a lot of time for stops, but if there are any wonderful foods to purchase along the way, I'd love to hear about them. When I made this trip last year, I stopped at LaDonna's (sp?) in Tulsa and purchased Rancho Gordo beans and some other goodies.

Also, any wonderful places to stop for a good quick meal (not fast food, but not a sit down dinner at a white-tablecloth place). I am looking for little cafes with excellent home cooking close to the road.

I can take either of these routes back:

Dallas---Tulsa---Kansas City--Des Moines---Saint Paul


Dallas---Oklahoma City---Wichita---Kansas City---Des Moines---Saint Paul

Also, in Dallas, I understand that some of the big grocery chains carry excellent flour tortillas---can anyone advise re store and brand of tortilla?

This trip came up fast, so I don't have much time to plan and search for great little places to eat and places to buy foods to bring home.

Thanks very much for any help you can give.
