Who's hungry?!

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article outlining some of my favorite restaurants here in Cedar Rapids. When I was putting together my list, I realized that there are also a ton of restaurants outside of Cedar Rapids that deserved a shout out, too! So, I obviously had to make another list.

It's not often that I travel out of Cedar Rapids, but after looking over my photos, I realized that I really should. Some of the places on my list are very close to us, like right over in Marion, but some are a little bit of a drive, like Iowa City or Anamosa!
