I'm helping my uncle and his son move and thought we make a fun little road trip out of it. However, we still wanted to spend some time in Dallas (we are leaving on the 17th and fly back to Chicago on the 20th in the morning) so we really are limited to really just eating time and maybe taking a few pictures. I wanted to go to St. Louis to see the Arch (probably just stop briefly and take a few pictures) and then head to Memphis (not sure what can be seen here quickly, maybe just pass by?) and then to Dallas. I heard the road trip there isn't really that scenic no matter which way you take, so I thought this way would be still quick and we see some things.
Any other recommendations? I think we wanted to maybe hit 1 or 2 places to eat that were must go to places that aren't too out of the way (or nearby the interstate). I heard about Lamberts in MO but we're leaving Chicago around 8am so it'll be 6 hours before we hit there (and we'll be starving before then).
