    In Ladd, Illinois it's Rip's that gets the press but last year I had some very good fried chicken across the street at Lanuti's.
     
    Ron's Cajun Connection in Utica has a good reputation but has been packed every time I've tried to stop, so I can't speak first-hand about the food.

      Highly recommended by me is Restaurant Augusta in the small town of Oxford, IA just off I-80 west of Iowa City. The have an award winning breaded pork tenderloin sandwich and their menu is unique as you can read in the cited article.

        I always make it a point to detour off to the Penn State Creamery when making a run through PA on I-80.

            Buckhorn Family Restaurant in Buckhorn, Pennsylvania. I can't recall the exit number. It's a truck stop, but the food is terrific -- if you can ignore the stuffed Nittany Lion (read cougar).

              Exit 232, I believe.

                It's terribly touristy these days but if you haven't been before the Amana Colonies in Iowa can be interesting. Plenty of places to eat and shop.

                  It is, indeed, Exit 232. I just checked. I also checked Yelp and saw some good reviews, so I guess it hasn't changed since I last was there.
