    riding & lunch & dinner

    I hear a lot of riders talking about riding to such-n-such place and having a nice big meal at blahblah big restaurant.

    I enjoy places like these (both here in town) that I went to today.

    The delectable items in the first photo are what we would call "Pluto Pups" or "Dagwood Dogs", but I see the stall has a sign saying Pronto Pups (possibly just a play on words).
    I thought these were known as Corn Dogs in the US but I may be completely wrong.

    Either way I haven't had one in years and I can still smell them now and can taste it as I write.
    You certainly know your comfort food and it's exactly what is needed on a ride. Not certain my wife would agree.

    pronto pups

    What town it might be on the way to somewhere I am going. If you are in central Illinois their is a good corn dog stand on route 107 across from tractor dealer also some fun roads in area, warning I think they go to some local county fairs so sometime stand not there. Town is Mt. Sterling.

    How about a spinoff to this thread: Favorite places to ride to for lunch or dinner? There are some great spots in Maine!

    Now I'm cornfused - "corn dogs" have a cornmeal coating.

    Those are just sausages (or brats) on a stick.

If you ever travel the mother road on old route 66 in Springfield Illinois stop at the cozy dog drive-in one of the original dog on a stick places.
