This was a good rest stop for us after the longer than usual road trip from Grenada. We had dinner the first night at Cracker Barrel and both agreed it was the worst experience at any CB we have had. (Service was slow, atmosphere was beyond noisy,  and the food was only so-so.)

We had lunch on day 2 at the local CiCi’s and it turned out to be a very good experience. Great crew, fresh and well prepared pizza and sides. The one drawback was no Senior Discount but can’t win them all.

Directions: I-55 to LA Exit 28, left on West Club Deluxe Rd
