I love to try out local restaurants when I travel (we all know what we get when we visit a chain restaurant). And when we're not traveling, I love seeing what other towns have to offer by tuning into the Travel Channel or Food Network. So I decided to see what area restaurants have been featured. Here's what I found.

I watch Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives with Guy Fieri and I love it when he visits places close to Quincy/Hannibal. Some of these have been featured on Man V. Food too. Here are some places that both shows have visited in Illinois and Missouri that you should try.

And of course the most famous on of them all, when Feasting on Asphalt came to Quincy to see what Maid-Rite were all about.
