    This is a chain restaurant, so you've probably eaten here somewhere else before. This Carlos O'Kelley's is located right off of US-61, near Wendy's, and we had fantastic service, fantastic prices, and most importantly, fantastic food. Plus, order one of their HUGE margaritas or daquiri's, they are to die for!

    Favorite Dish: Margarita chicken (a chicken breast marinated in lime and honey sauce, really good) and a Strawberry Daquiri!

Burlington Off The Beaten Path

    In case you don't know what a grotto is, it's a bunch of little bitty gems/stones/rocks all kind of glued together to make a huge building/altar/whatever. There seem to be a lot of them in Iowa. Our Lady of Grace Grotto is beside St Mary's Catholic Church, and its a lovely little rest stop before you leave the city. It has a little stream and bridge and some really pretty sculptures, plus a religious shrine type thing (hope I'm not using that term incorrectly here) that tells a story when you press a button. It's quite a nice side trip, I highly recommend it!

    Okay, so this may not exactly be a sport, but there wasn't another category to put it under, so here you go. There are actually two mini-golf courses in Burlington (I know, this town has loads of hidden wonders, doesn't it?). We went to the one by the bowling alley right off of Highway 61, and had a lovely time. Plus, there seems to be hardly anyone around, so we had the whole course to ourselves! I lost, but it was really fun anyway! Sorry I can't remember the name, just look for the Bowling alley, it's right next door.
