Fried chicken, catfish, bbq pork, meatloaf, gizzards -- the roundup on this menu would have you believing this little side-of-the-road spot in south Illinois' Highland (just east of St. Louis) is actually located in somewhere in the deep south. The homey spot, favorite to many a local and veteran trucker, also brings phenomenal homemade pies with towers of meringue topping to the table, which is undoubtedly covered in a blue checkered, picnic-style tablecloth.
