An Eater's Guide to More Than 1,000 of the Best Local Hot Spots and Hidden Gems Across America
by Jane and Michael Stern
About:First published in 1977, the original Roadfood became an instant classic. James Beard said, "This is a book that you should carry with you, no matter where you are going in these United States. It's a treasure house of information."
The 40th anniversary edition of Roadfood includes 1,000 of America's best local eateries along highways and back roads, with nearly 200 new listings, as well as a brand new design.
Filled with enticing alternatives for chain-weary-travelers, Roadfood provides descriptions of and directions to (complete with regional maps) the best lobster shacks on the East Coast; the ultimate barbecue joints down South; the most indulgent steak houses in the Midwest; and dozens of top-notch diners, hotdog stands, ice-cream parlors, and uniquely regional finds in between. Each entry delves into the folkways of a restaurant's locale as well as the dining experience itself, and each is written in the Sterns' entertaining and colorful style. A cornucopia for road warriors and armchair epicures alike, Roadfood is a road map to some of the tastiest treasures in the United States.
An Eater's Guide to More Than 1,000 of the Best Local Hot Spots and Hidden Gems Across America is one of the coolest books! This is one of the neatest travel books I have ever seen because it is a food guide for someone traveling who is looking for unique and great food. Have you ever been on a road trip, but struggled to find good food or you weren't sure what the area was known for? This is your go to book for all road trips and GOOD food! From around the country, you can find the neatest restaurants and best food! I love this guide book. It is going in our car for all our road trips. I love how every section of the region on the map has a recommendation with a little bit of information about the restaurant, environment and food. I highly recommend this book and give it 5/5 stars!
