Trip Report (STL, KCMO, Omaha) Tue, 06/20/06 12:59 PM (permalink)
UPDATE: The trip report now starts about halfway down this page. There will be more photos, especially of the non-food discoveries on my blog (

Greetings from the road....

I am in scenic Council Bluffs, IA, on the banks of the Missouri River, overlooking the Ameristar Casino. God Bless America.

This is the tale end of a journey that begn in St. Louis, continued into Kansas City and finds us now in this "suburb" of Omaha. The purpose of this trip has been the College World Series, the new ballpark in STL, and some GREAT eating along the way.

Some of the places that I will write about more in depth will include:

St. Louis
O'Connell's Pub -- maybe the BEST roast beef sandwich I have ever eaten
Blueberry Hill -- their world famous Cheddar Burger
Tony's Restaurant -- home of Missouri's Largest Omelet (that's what it said on the sign)
Ted Drewe's -- frozen custard (two visits!)

Kansas City
Arthur Bryant's - Some might argue the best BBQ in America?
Another stop somewhere on the way to the airport tomorrow????

Lo Sole Mio -- I know this is going to sound weird, but this is one of the best Italian places I know -- it just happens to be in Omaha!
Johnny's Cafe -- on the way there for lunch this afternoon!
...and, perhaps, a review of the ballpark food at Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium

I will try to do full reviews here, as well as keep up my (seemingly abandoned) blog ([url]http//[/url])!
