I stumbled upon a travel website called worldfootprints.com, and they have a whole article dedicated to what you can find in our home of Quincy, IL.  There is a lot about Quincy's history and the city's arts and culture, but what made me laugh is what I read in the Local Cuisine section of the article. On the site they say...

"One of Quincy’s highlights is the vast number of local, family-owned restaurants with fantastic food. One of Quincy’s quirks involves serving pizza and Mexican food at the same restaurant, of which I’m a big fan. Local pizza-Mexican favorites include Gem City Restaurant and The Tower of Pizza and Mexican. The same family that owns these joints also owns Kelly’s Tavern and The Abbey. While I enjoy both of these eateries, I especially love Kelly’s. They offer a salad bar with locally-famous cheese soup and gigantic homemade cinnamon rolls."

I love that line "Quincy's quirks" because when I moved here 4 and a half years ago from Chicago I was surprised to see combined "Pizza & Mexican" restaurants. I had never seen that combination before in my life, and I move down here and there are multiple pizza and Mexican places!
