Lunch along I-80 (Cleveland area)

Any chowish suggestions not too far off the road for a family with two small kids? We'll be hitting the Cleveland area around noon on a weekday on our way to Chicago.

    Exactly how far is "not to far?" There may be more options depending on your criteria.

    1. re: stuart

      I don't think I want to wander more than ten minutes off of 80. The Twinsburg location of Whitehouse looks about right.

    2. What about Blue Canyon?

      I don't know how far off of 80 it is, but it is in Twinsburg near I-480 and Rt. 91.

      The food is worth the stop.

      1. if you go to the western burbs of clevelenad and get off on rt58 at the west lorain/amherst exit, just south of the exit in amherst is HOT DOG HEAVEN. guaranteed kid approved. best chili dogs ever!
