VIA County Road
« on: January 18, 2022, 11:54:36 AM »



Are there any other states that mention towns along non state routes as “VIA COUNTY ROAD” like KDOT does?

I think it's because in both states a lot of towns are served by short spur state highways, so it's assumed that towns are not served by county roads and it should be specified when they are.

Most of them are in Oklahoma. In recent years the chain expanded into Kansas. I think Joplin has a location too.

We drove up US-169 and there was one along our way in KS back in 2018 or 2019.

They tried one in Texarkana, TX but it didn't make it. Billy is from Hooks 15 miles away.

The board game store I used to play D&D at a few years ago had a deal with the Billy Sims next door, where you could order and pay at the game store counter and then someone from Billy Sims would run it over and you could eat at the table while you played. I don't care for much barbecue but I like Billy Sims (probably because I dislike barbecue sauce, and Billy Sims is one of the rare places that have the sauce on the side by default).

Kansas and Nebraska are the only ones I can think of that use the "Via County Road" verbiage.  The vast majority of other states just give the destination and leave the motorist to figure it out.

It does. Also Dodge City and Hays in Western Kansas that I know of.
