Yesterday, South East Nebraska, DW touring quilt shops. 3 small towns, each listed 2-4 non-chain restaurants on GPS. None open when we started looking for lunch, about 11:30. And most had "For Rent" signs on the buildings. Finally ate at a chain about 2. I wonder if floods are hurting? Or the trade war?
Over the years, when I had time, I have asked utility or city workers where to eat lunch. But as the workers have got younger, they only know of the chains.
When wife and I first started to vacation together we decided to hunt for restaurants the locals used. If we had a good meal, next find another local. But if we got a meal we did not like, go to chain so we knew what we would get...

downhome, you mentioned Prescott in another post so don't know if this would apply but while in the Prescott area there is a small cafe down in Dewey just south of Prescott Valley that has very good food. It is the Blue Hills Cafe and offers all kinds of meals at great prices. We spent the summer in PV last year and enjoyed several meals at the Blue Hills.

A lot of the mom and pop places the owners are getting older and retiring. The kids usually don't want anything to do with running the place, not a lot of money in it for a lot of work.

Reminds me of my first time in a small town in northern Alberta, I asked an elderly local where to get a good meal. He directed me to a hotel, it was the grungiest place I have ever eaten in and the food was sorta edible. Fortunately my digestive system didn't rebel. He had probably never eaten out in his life.[emoticon]

Not only that, but they've all discovered cheap bottles of hot liquid that they add to all foods, whereby you get NO chile Flavor, just lots of scoville hot units (burns your mouth and gets you some all-night heartburn).

Excellent BBQ in downtown Kingman, ask around and the locals will tell you where it's at. It's been a couple years since we've been there, but the food was great...........get some peach cobbler also!

We ate at the airport today. Quiet only four other customers. I had the fish sandwich fora change.Sandwiches were it. The Breakfast was better but it was 2:00.
Food, unremarkable but good setting and good service.
We had to go to VA ER in Prescott and didn't get a chance to look around.It is about 100 miles from here. They get more rain. Lots of greenery and some small lakes and nicer more upscale area.
We ill go to the Hot Rod Cafe in a day or two. the Lodge in the state park maybe later and check out the BBQ.

I have the app “Trip Advisor.” for this. I’m faithful about leaving my comment too.

So you bought an RV without a kitchen?
