Man vs. Food is gonna be in going to my lovely hometown of Springfield, IL. According to the blog post that I have linked they will be taping at Cozy Dog Darcy’s Pint and Joe Roger’s Original Recipe Chili.
I have never been to the Chili place, but Cozy Dog is a route 66 landmark that has been there since the 1949. The corn dogs or cozy dogs as they call them are great. As I showed in my last pictures post, D’arcy’s Pint has great horseshoes and is really the place that gave the horseshoe sandwich. I will be honest with you, Springfield is not known as city with a rich culinary tradition, because pretty much everything about the city is overshadowed by the association of the city with Lincoln. Still, I am excited that the city is getting recognition for its food. Anyways, I am gonna try my hardest to make this my last post that mentions the horseshoe sandwich, I promise. Oh, and I almost forgot, the Sringfield episode premiers on the Travel Channel October 7th, 2009, so check it out.
