There's nothing better than dining at your friendly neighborhood restaurant.

Since moving to Iowa, I've eaten at a whole bunch of fun and fancy restaurants, but nothing beats visiting that certain little neighborhood place that feels comfortable and familiar. Back in Michigan, that place for me is a hole-in-the-wall joint called Boat Works. It's tiny, cozy, and has a massive menu with the best nachos on the planet. Here in Iowa, I haven't really found "my place" just yet. I'm still on the hunt! Maybe this restaurant can be my new home.

Only in Your State made a list titled, "11 Neighborhood Restaurants In Iowa With Food So Good You’ll Be Back For Seconds," and a place right here in Cedar Rapids is on there. That place is Lighthouse Inn Supper Club on Mount Vernon Road SE.

Here are some of the other places that made the list:

  • George the Chili King - Des Moines
