Neither IKEA nor IHOP were reviewed by the Roadfood editorial staff, to the best of my knowledge.  But, Ms. Palooza, you are not TOO far off the track.

buffetbuster - I think recusing yourself from this one is appropriate.

TTM is standing right next to me and asked me to reply......

Excellent guesses so far, but we don't have a winner yet.

@Tony Bad - Are you sayin' you're better than me???

As for the photo, five points awarded to the gentleman from the Great State of Oakley-homa!  Congratulatioins, Mr. Baratz...you can choose one item off the bottom shelf.  Ann Sather is most certainly a correct guess.

I just got home from a weekend out-of-town, so I don't have another ready to go just yet.  I will try to get a new photo posted tomorrow.  If, in the meantime, anyone else wants to jump in...go for it.

While others are getting photos ready, I will go ahead and put this one up for everyone to take a shot at.

As always, this place is reviewed on this site.

AHI MPLS-
You are right, there aren't very many clues.  If it helps, this is my blue Jeep in the photo, so this is a place I drive to, rather than fly and get a car rental.  And the yellow paint job is only a few years old.

Of course! We all know that joint, it's called OPEN  or YES WE'RE OPEN - I think it's part of a national chain...

Cheers, John

I was going to ask if that was your Jeep.  The only problem is that your driving radius narrows things down to about a 500-miles radius around Pittsburgh! 

Oh....and GO Pens!

No plate on the front, that narrows it down to states with rear plate only.

That was really the key.  When the Sterns talk about loving places that used to be gas stations, Henry's is usually one of the places they cite.   Way to go Greymo!

A lot of people might have missed it because the Sterns' photo was made before they painted the place yellow.

but who is JCStrutz, BB?


I think that might be bb's cousin Johnny, who is a world class mangier in his own right, and an all around good guy.

From the reports I have read the term "una buona forchetta" is how I would describe those guys!

If you ever get there, and want a cup of coffee with whatever you order, be sure to make it a point to ask for a spoon. They do not provide spoons with coffee unless you ask.

I'll throw out another one.  I'm a little disappointed that I likely won't get there this year.  Maybe next....

That looks like the first location in an all-Roadfood sequel to 'The Da Vinci Code.'  Of course Dale will be the monk flagellating himself for eating regionally inappropriate food.
