Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives

Another member mentioned they are traveling all around the country checking out Diners, drive-ins and Dives along the way. Thought this would make a great thread to share.

We've been to one in Springfield, IL area. Charlie Parker's Diner. Home of the hugest pancakes on the planet. Hard to get skinny food here.

Charlie Parker's Diner :: Springfield IL :: 217-241-2104.

Charlie Parker's is also the "Home of the Horseshoe". Toast, meat of choice, and frenchfries piled on top with cheese sauce over the top. This is definately NOT "skinny food!!

When in Springfield, also stop by Cozy Dog on 6th Street, which was once part of Route 66. DON'T order a corn dog. They get offended. It's a Cozy Dog, and that's the only place to get one.

There is a little restaurant at US 54 and MO 52, near Eldon, MO called the Silver Dollar. 1also serves a "Horseshoe" just like the one you described. Even the small version was too much for this guy to finish...

That must be an acquired taste, or do you smother them in some kind of sauce?
