So i'm now in Iowa. I was in New Glarus. The swissest thing about it was the tresse at the local bakery. They called it egg braid.
A few places have the barn and the house attached which I have never seen anywhere else in the US.

Pm me if you need any Iowa centric suggestions.

I have lived all over Midwest.

I'm coasting on usroute 20 toward Samuel mckelvie national forest. I'm desperatly looking for a family restaurant where i could get a pulled pork sandwich. House and barn being the same building is effectively normal in switzerland. I didn't pay attention. It insulates the house on winter.

Tacos in south Sioux City might be a good choice

Don’t speed through Sioux City you will end up with an electronic ticket on your Turo rental. Worst speed trap in ever, ask me how I know:(

If you're in Rapid City, you can get pulled pork downtown at Firehouse Brewing. Sometimes they have music at night and you can sit outdoors.

Thank you! I'll probably go there. Sorry for the typo, my phone has a tendency to turn everything into a french word.
