One Good Knee from Warrensburg, MO on 03/30/2022 07:52 PM:
Not a lot of recent review coverage on this place, so here we go. We were really glad the HP was open on Sunday, March 27, else we would have had to cook dehydrated food--and after 110 miles in 2 days we couldn't be bothered. They had a nice IPA on tap if you like beer (we do and did), but quite literally have *only* frozen pizza on offer if you want food. Junk Calories: Check. Plus: They cook it in a convection oven--very fast and Krispy. Minus: Red Barron frozPiz would be a big step up from whatever junk they buy from their wholesaler. But we didn't die, nor even starve, and were ready to ride the next morning. An interesting fellow at the bar had biked before, and we had an engaging convo about the MR340 (the longest continuous river race in the world, held every year, right here in Missouri). Others have mentioned it's smokey at the HitchPo--yes, a little. If you're allergic I guess it could be a deal killer (or worse), but we were just hungry and beer-deprived, and allergic only to not eating Right Now, so it was No Big Deal.
So, on all counts, you are forewarned/forearmed.
Also of note in Hartsburg, early 2022: Globe B&B told me on the phone they do not open 'til May. So if you want something that's not camping, check AirBnB--we found a nice place that ticked the major boxes: Look for Cameron's place. There are not an abundance of places, but there's that one, and they offer part of a secure garage that's perfect for a couple loaded-down touring bikes.
