In a quest to find new places to explore during this extended pandemic, we asked you to name Iowa's most underrated restaurants.

The feedback we got was amazing, over a dozen small town diners, pubs, and restaurants were nominated in the comments section of our recent Facebook post. We managed to save one big city spot for Tornado's, a Cedar Rapids favorite. And we loved seeing a landslide of votes for Newt's Cafe in Nichols, Iowa.

With these hearty recommendations, you can be sure to find a place to fill your comfort food cravings.
