Good report! Loved the pics and the many new places you went. Hoping to make it to some of them myself one of these days.

Thanks everyone.

WJ-
I was delighted that you suggested Al Forno during my visit to Rhode Island and what a wonderful experience that was.  And not just because you picked up the check!
 
Outstanding report as always and such a pleasure to read.

While you have done a great job with this report, I would like to mention that three specific places that I dined with you that are truly Roadfoody and serve hearty, heart warming fare.
 
Gator's BBQ - everything from the people to the food to the hospitality was great!  The only exception was the jackass party of one at a table for 6 with his laptop open and refusing to move to a smaller table causing us an extra 20 minute wait.  
 
John's Famous Stew - as the only occupants right after opening, or maybe because we opened the place after our 15 minute search for the door -  - all of the stew's were rib stickers and our host so fun to talk to.  The historical pictures on the wall we great also.  
 
Steer Inn - Beef n Noodles is nothing special but here, all the right components came together.  We licked the plates clean and had a lot of fun with our waitress.  She was feisty and being tested by a couple of homeless folks that were dining nearby.  She deserves sainthood! 
 
Maybe ChiBears15 will take a break from organizing his end-of-year spectacular and offer comment....

Well, that's just to make up for all the times in the past that you picked up the check

I think he's too busy thinking about that nice young lady park ranger at the State Park in Indianapolis that was eyeing him!
 
On an aside, I just hit my second snag for the Laura Ingalls Wilder trip I'll be taking in the fall with Sandra. (the first snag was the closing of Bohemian Café in Omaha)  On the way to Walnut Grove MN there's a local restaurant in Sunburg MN called Kaffestua .  The building itself is owned by the town and the town prides itself on it's Norwegian heritage. Every Tuesday is Potato Klub and Rommegrot day and I was planning to time our visit in coordination. Well it appears management left at the end of 2016 so I'm hoping that the town  finds new management soon and continue with their Tuesday tradition.

We plan to be in St Louis next year so I'm sure something "Eye-talian" will show up on next year's report.
