What should I eat around Columbia, Missouri?

I'm visiting a friend in CoMo this weekend for a little less than a week and I'd like to immerse myself in some heartland goodness. What should I eat along highway 40 between KC and STL?

I'm from SF, love food and stuff, and have never been to the midwest. I would love to find food I never come across here, down home stuff, I'm not vegetarian and I love county fair and southern cooking, so pretty much anything is good for me. Unhealthy is OK, too!
I'm flying in/out of Kansas City/MCI, so I imagine BBQ recommendations are in order. We'll also probably go to St. Louis one day, so anything there is welcome as well. I'm particularly interested in wayside options during the 2hr(?) drives between Columbia and each of those cities, though.
