somewhere in the middle

Looking at the map route from Colorado Springs to Wichita on Hwy 50, Garden City was our only choice for a lunch break.  Luckily my boss (who knows where to eat on any roadtrip-I hope I am her apprentice) knew that Garden City was home to many recent Mexican and Vietnamese transplants, meaning fresh tortillas and pho were on my mind all through eastern CO.  We felt really lucky to be on track to arrive an hour before the Vietnamese restaurant we found online (Pho Hoa One) closed, yet the door was locked!  Tragically, we hadn’t accounted for the change from Mountain to Central time, and therefore we had just missed lunch.  We asked for recommendations at a tortilleria and were pointed to El Conquistador.  It was solid, not exceptional, but that alone was completely unexpected in a long drive through Kansas.
