Don't pass through Springfield without getting a cozy dog

Ok, it's been a while since I hit this spot, so no food pics to share, but just wanted to throw this out there because it's such a cool food stop on a road trip through Springfield, IL. I first learned about it when writing an article on the original Route 66 in Illinois and covered some of the restaurants on the route. It has a cool history and the story goes that the Waldmire family were the creators of what we know today as corn dogs. It's a small dining room -- nothing impressive -- but loaded with nostalgic decor. The star of the menu is the cozy dog...and mmmm...the thought of it makes me want to make the 2 1/2 hour drive to get a basket of cozy dogs and fries. If you're ever in the area, be sure to give it a try. Read more on the place at their website, cozydogdrivein.com
