>Bloggers, Ken & Cindy, travel the US in an RV. Their site is called "Frerx Adventures". (click on
this link to see their site) In their blog, they list Courtney's Places as one of the 'Best of the
Southwest' restaurants. They posted Courtney's as their #3 favorite! "We might list
Courtney’s Places as one of our most pleasant surprises on the trip....Every course served was
absolutely outstanding.... .....She (Courtney) told us that, in fact, her restaurant is so popular as
a ‘destination’ restaurant on Friday and Saturday night’s that she has had to start taking
reservations charging for cancellations and no-shows because she regularly has all tables
reserved. She has been written up in several Kansas magazines and newspapers.....Everything
was homemade, the dining room décor was very tasteful, and Courtney did an amazing
job.......We were very pleased with our decision to take Highway 54 across Kansas versus
staying on Interstates and will definitely give this route preference when in that part of the
country again to insure we get to stop by again to visit Courtney! "
