My wife and I are taking a road trip from St.Louis to Pittsburgh with stops in Owensboro, KY, Louisville, Cincinnati and Columbus along the way via HWY 64, 71 and 70(from Columbus to Pittsburgh) . Being from Calif. we have no idea of good places to eat along the way and I happened to find Chowhound by accident. So I thought this would be good place to ask the experts for places serving barbeque, homestyle cooking (biscuits and gravy, chicken and dumplings etc.), homemade pies and desserts and any dishes famous for the region like burgoo? Were willing to drive 20 or 30 miles off those mentioned Highways to try something and being in St.Louis for a few days we're willing to make a day trip (2 or 3 hours each way) to see the sights and try some good food. I hope you hounds can help us out.
