Hwy's 30 and 66

Hello roadfoodies. Looking for places to eat along Highway 30 in Nebraska, Omaha, Kansas City, Springfield Mo, and along 66 back to Albuquerque where we live. Is Johnny's still in Omaha, and is it still good, or is there a better steak place with reasonable prices? What about Kansas City; someone said there was an excellent fried chicken place (Strouds?)or really good KC BarBQue. Anyone with info on these two historic routes regarding good home cooked food please reply. Gave up on Chowhound; took forever to get in to it. Thanks much to all.

    Stroud's in Kansas City is truly great. Go hungry. The food is delicious and the quantifies are large. Everything was very good and I would drive way out of my way to eat there. It's reviewed on this site at:

    Lambert's Cafe, discussed in many posts on this site is located on Hwy 65 in Ozark, Mo. On the southeastern side of Springfield. It's a little out of your way but well worth a side trip. http://www.throwedrolls.com/ozark.html

    Most of the Oklahoma restruarants reviewed on this site in the review section are strung out along Interstate 40. I'd look at them.

    The Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo is also a good place to stop. It's reviewed here:

    Hi DKP, How are you getting to Hwy 30? I've always enjoyed US56(Santa Fe Trail), to go between the SW and KC.
    Omaha and points west:
    Yes , steaks are still going strong in Omaha. Caniglia's and Johnny's. My favorite is still Bohemian Cafe.

    KC: Best current Q is LC's, either on Blue Parkway, sort of by the stadiums, or in Lenexa. Stroud's has two locations: original south and In Kansas City North(really a cool antebellum house). If you head downtown towards Union Station there are several places: Fiorella's, Lidia's and others.

    Midpoint diner in Alvin, Tx. about 60 miles west of Amarillo. It's the mid point of Route 66 between Chicago and LA. Get there early they usually close by 5 or 6. Prettiest hamburger ( and good tasting too) I've ever seen tucked into it's paper wrapper. The staff is real friendly too.

    Thank's for the suggestions. We are going up through Denver, and will pick up old 30 in Ogallala, Nebraska. Lexington is an old stamping ground for me; worked on the radio station there for several years back in the 50's. Anything along old 30 you can recommend?

    Here's more on your route. Cabela's is always a stop for us, and Ole's is unique. I usually cut down to Us36 at some point
    on my way back to KC. It's a really neat road through picturesque towns,
    but no Omaha on it. Are you still in music or broadcasting? There's a couple of music threads in the "lighter" forum you might enjoy. Bill
