Road trip - with strange but necesary nightly stops - please help with food

We have to make it from SoCal to suburban Minneapolis as fast as we can, with a more leisurely trip home. It's a strange trip. Please help.
 
Cedar City/Parowan Utah, hopefully more Parowan than Cedar City. but we'll take what there is anywhere.
 
Georgetown, Co, or anything inthe vicinity. We are also kicking around a driving marathon to get us east of Denver, so anything EOD would be appreciated.
 
Lincoln, Ne
 
MN is already well planned.
 
On the way home:
 
Rapid City, SD
 
Laramie, WY
 
Northern UT is OK. [Maddox! Island Isle!]
 
St. George is sort of covered, but...yikes, so many chains.
 
please help.
 
I searched. I did.
 
And yes, I searched. I truly did. [Can y'all tell that I've been hit by the "SEARCH" Monster before?]  I did. Tell ya what, several mentioned restaurants on our route to and from are now closed. So please help us. Thank you.

    Cedar City has a nice little cafe called the Market Grill that is located by the stockyards and serves a great breakfast and a very good chicken-fried steak.  All locals and quite good...

    Hi Totillie,
     
    I can't help you, but it sounds stressful.
     
    Have a safe trip.
    Hope some others can help you.
     
    Good luck.

    I highly recommend The Overland in Laramie, WY.

    pogophiles, kaszeta, - thank you! We'll check 'em out.
     
    Mar, it's not an emergency trip, and the reward is many days in MN with good friends, and good food. I also thank you for the concern.
     
    Colorado mountains - aaaaa - not much where we plan to stay! oh well.

    Good luck.


    Same here. 
    Been to Thousand Oaks, but never been where you are going.
    I'm writing this to keep the thread on the top hoping and trusting you will find help here.

    Later this year I may be going to Lincoln, NE for a couple of days. One place I will try is Runza, a regional fast-food chain that specializes in runzas: bread pockets stuffed with ground meat, cabbage, and onions. It's a legacy of central/eastern European immigrants in the area. Runza's website is here:
    http://www.runza.com/  I hope you get other suggestions, including other places to try runzas.

    If I understand your route, going to the twin cities, you are taking I-15 to I-70
    to I-25 to I-76 to I-90 to I-35?

    I think I can safely recommend the Millstone Family Restaurant in Rapid City.  We ate at the 1520 N. LaCrosse Street location 5 years ago and were happy with it.  (They have 2 locations in Rapid City.)  The LaCrosse St. Location (now open 18 years) is about a block south of Exit 59 of I 90. 
    Website:  http://www.bhmillstone.com/aboutus/ 
     
    Trip Advisor also gives it reasonably good ratings, ranking it #20 out of 77 Rapid City Restaurants:

    1bbqboy, that is correct. Four 8 hours days.
     
    MPJim, thank you, driving is supposed to be fun, but sometimes it's not. . [And did you enjoy T.O??? :)]
     
     Runzas are interesting, thank you again  -
     
    6star, so happy for a Rapid City rec!
     
    we'll muddle through, with these good suggestions. Gracias! Any other recs are greatly appreciated.
