RE: Off-I-70 food (Eastern CO. to Columbia, MO)
http://www.freestatebrewing.com/ If you like beer, or food, or better yet, both this is a must stop. Take the 2nd lawrence exit and taste award winning brews+ great food. In downtown KC the Southwest Boulevard Cafe district is a short hop south on the freeway loop. Take southwest trafficway and exit 1st exit. you'll be right in the middle of it.Tapas, mexican, etc. All great and innovative. If you don't feel like Q, take the Noland Rd. exit and head to Stephenson's, a KC tradition. Great chicken, green rice, pasteries, fresh apple butter. All around good.
