RE: Driving Pgh.-Omaha via I-70/I-29; return via I-80
You can't get more unchained in St. Louis than the Crown Candy Kitchen. It is right off I-70 on St. Louis Avenue - but that exit is for eastbound traffic. The Crown Candy Kitchen, virtually unchanged since 1917 is a neighborhood malt shop with burgers and sandwiches (egg salad is classic). Also the size of the booths are a strong reminder of the days when Americans weighed less.
