Road trips are a blast, and what better way to tour your state than trying out local restaurants! There’s nothing particularly fancy about this food journey.  A lot of these places are in small towns and feature simple, home-style menus. One thing they all have in common is absolutely delicious food! You can stay where you are after dinner, or drive closer to the next day’s breakfast location. In truth, the drive time is relatively short, so you’ll often have time to wander around and see the sights between meals. No diets allowed!

Not only have we supported some local businesses but we have also experienced the beauty of southern Missouri along the way. Are you ready for one of the best restaurant road trips in Missouri? Comment if you’ve been to any of the locations along the route.
