Where would you go to eat a favorite food from childhood?

9 years ago

I grew up in Peoria, Illinois. All my siblings have moved away, as did I over 45 years ago. Nevertheless, we still wax poetic about special restaurants of our childhood, all of which are long gone too. Delicious beef BBQ sandwiches and sauce at John's BBQ. Pork tenderloin sandwiches at Hunts Drive-in. Fried chicken at the Original Murphy's Restaurant with the accompanying platter of corn fritters. Lemon cream pies from Melvyn's Bakery. Chinese food from Hoy Toy Lo. Almost anything from the Wolfe's Quality Bakery. If my siblings were looking over my shoulders, I am sure a few more would be added.
