Good Food Along I-80

Hello all, I will be driving from Boston to Breckenridge, CO next week and I was wondering if there are any must stops along the way. I'm not looking for anything fancy or expensive, just some great food that will hit the spot after/before/during a long day on the road. I don't mind a small detour, but I'm not looking to go several hours out of my way.

Thanks

    According to google maps, it's only 44 miles longer to take route 70 from Ohio to Colorado.  You have Columbus, Indianapolis, Kansas City on that route.  You may have better options on that route.  I'd do some research on the options; 44 miles is only about 2% of the entire trip.  If you take 80, the largest truck stop in the world is in Wolcott Iowa. I'd definitely stop there.

    Baggie, do you have your overnight stop(s) picked out yet?
     
    As you pass through central Illinois you'll have the chance to stop at Ron's Cajun Connection, Lanuti's, and Rip's.  And once you reach Des Moines, if you feel like barbecue Smokey D's serves some pretty good food.

    Will you be going near the route of OLD  US Hwy 66...???
     
    Or along the Lincoln Highway route...???
     
    you might want to explore the history, small motels, and food joints along these 2 routes...
