    Mmmm pie! Or, as my friend Don says, "Pie for Strength!"

    Cyrus O'Leary's is restaurant in Spokane. When the MOA rally was there, we went twice for pie, it was so good!
    edit: I just looked this up, unfortunately the building was sold and the restaurant closed in 2011, but you can still buy the pies.

    In Tigard, OR (just south of Portland) is Miller's Homestead. Great food and especially, great pie!

    I grew up in Tuscaloosa! Haven't been to Dreamland since they went all corporate, but they always had good stuff. I remember that original location having just five things on the menu on the old days: ribs, white bread, 'tater chips, beer, and soda.

    Now when it comes to 'cue-joints, here's a good system to follow:

    If the sign says 'barbecue,' keep on going.
    If the sign says 'bar-b-que,' only stop if there is a good number of vehicles parked there.
    If the sign says 'BBQ,' stop there and eat to your heart's content.

    I don't know how well it works in other parts of the country, but good Texan friend told me that if I was looking at a roadhouse for BBQ, if the lot had a good mix of beat up trucks and Mercedes, pull in!

    Road foodies

    Thanks to the member who advised to stop in the Hilltop Restaurant, in L"Anse, Michigan for a cinnamon roll/sweet roll. Bigger than a coffee cup saucer and 5" to 6" tall maybe and got one fresh out of the oven. My wife and I split one and I don't think I'll need another until 2018 and a half. Seems they sold 204 dozen on one day for a record.

    Two Montana foodie stops

    Northeast of Missoula, MT is town of Avon. The Avon Cafe is an oasis! Great food, great service, and great pie. I stopped there because I needed a break from riding. Oh my, what a find. If I'm in the area I will stop there again.

    If you got a sweet tooth for fresh baked stuff - pie, donuts, bread, cakes, and fancy stuff stop in at the Black Cat Bakery in Missoula. The sticky buns are incredible - lots of cinnamon "goopy stuff" topped with pecans. Oh my! Good coffee too. Definitely a stop after riding US 12 Lolo/Lochsa, or when on I-90.

    I am heading to Avon the next time I am over that way!

    In Missoula, Hob Knob on Higgins has amazing home made corned beef hash for breakfast. My daughter always gets their fresh banana nut bread french toast and loves it.
