WELCOME to RF Hugh!
LOL! [:)] I want to add that the best Reuben in Iowa is actually in Quad Cities (but officially in Illinois), just off I-80 The Belgian Village Inn, which has been raved about in other forums, is fantastic. I’ll find and link the QC forum for you. It’s in Moline, IL. Googling it give a map…
560 17th Ave Moline, IL 61265 (309) 764-9222

[paste url back toegther, I didn’t want it to widen this page…]
Here’s the QC link: BeernSnausages is the local expert…
I dig the Amana Colonies! Second that suggestion. I went to the Ronneburg and had a great meal. Thread with other stuff incl that is here:
HAMBURG INN! A don’t miss stop! Loads of people around here will 2nd that suggestion…
Also Whitey’s Ice Cream at many locations off I-80. See http://www.whiteysicecream.com/locations.asp
You can also search I-80 since there are a bunch of discussions on that route over the past year or two… check the Trip Report by Buffetbuster on Omaha NE for recent suggestions there.
Happy travels! (I am jealous…)
