Nashville to Chicago to West Lafayette, IN Mon, 02/25/13 8:13 PM (permalink)
Need some recommendations -- taking my college-bound son for accepted students events at DePaul and Purdue universities.
Recommendation for Thursday evening -- in/around the Indianapolis area or further north.
Friday/Saturday breakfast/lunches in Chicago -- already have our favorite pizza places and dinners covered with reservations
Sunday night in West Lafayette/Lafayette
Monday dinner south of Indianapolis -- or in/around Louisville.
 
It never fails that Roadfooders help me discover a gem on my travels. Thanks for any/all recommendations!

    Might I ask, what are your Chicago choices?  Just curious, not planning to influence you in any way.
     
    In West Lafayette, you'll find some serviceable Barbecue at South Street Smokehouse.  Here's the Roadfood review:

    It's good, not great 'Que, but it's as good as you're going to find in West Lafayette, Indiana on a Sunday night.
     
    Have a great trip!

      I recommend a stop at Gray Brothers Cafeteria, a little outside of Indy, either Thursday or Monday:

        For a totally out of this world "family" meal I would say
         
        Joe Hubers Family Restaurant in Starlight, IN for the Monday evening meal.  The place is about 20-25 miles from I-65 in Louisville/New Albany.
        They are open from 11am to 7pm

        The food is top notch, you will not be disappointed!

            Pizano's on State is our favorite pizza place these days -- have tried most of the notables. Dinners at Sable and The Publican -- certainly open to other suggestions.
