The "restaurant" part of Art's Restaurant & Motel along I-55 in Farmersville, Illinois has been reopened as a barbecue restaurant. I hope to try it when I'm down that way in a couple of months but thought I'd mention it in case anyone else happens to be passing by, and it also happens to be a US-66 historical landmark.

A few years ago I was doing a little research on Art's and found that his original barbecue recipe called for boiled pork butt... :shock:

I'll have to look that place up on the map. I've spent my fair share of time on 55 and I can't recall passing by there.
Home Depot Guy: Stockin up on charcoal for the big game?
Me: No, I'm out. This is normal.
