10 Days in Omaha With Car (where to eat?)
I'll be staying at my brother's place for 10 days and will have access to a car. I already asked about the best meat in Omaha, but i plan on driving around (Iowa, Missouri and so on). Definitely going to KC for some BBQ. Can anyone suggest some amazing restaurants or great local food? Is there anything of note, when it comes to eating, in Des Moines and/or any major city close to Omaha within a few hours driving distance?

Some threads on Omaha.
In KC for Q besides the usual suspects
You might want to check out the City market
On the way to KC, you can stop in St. Joseph at the Frederick Steak House(a little hometown place
)but if you can you might want to stop in Smithville at Justus Drugstore. It is not a drugstore though and I bet you need reservations. We have not been, but it is on my list. You can read quite a bit about them online.
Western Iowa has some decent hometown scratch cafes spread out over an enormous geographical area. Check your map to see if you are anywhere near:
Susie's Kitchen in Stanton (SHORT HOURS)
Farmer's Kitchen in Atlantic
Cronk's Cafe in Denison
