Springfield/Lincoln Museum Must Have

Mom (75+) and I are visiting the Lincoln Museum on our way to STL...We'll be hungry and need a snack, what shouldn't we miss???

  1. Well, the traditional Springfield (Illinois not Missouri) dish is something called a horseshoe sandwich. But I'm fond of the Cozy Dog Drive-In, which I blogged about at , if you're interested.

    1. re: lemons

      Is it the Cozy Dog that makes the horseshoe with the beer in the cheese sauce? Friends claim that only the horseshoe with the beer/cheese sauce to be authentic and good. There are other places to look into if you don't feel like the instant cardiac arrest

      The only thing off the top of my head is Sebastian's, but they may only be open for dinner. I can't recall the name of the place...A young chef openned a place doing American comfort food with upscale twists. Good luck, as I know that was vague. Oh, on Business 55 on the way out of Springfield, there's some good bbq by the overpass inbetween the southbound/northbound traffic.
