TJ Jackson ah, so you two come here to read about mediocre food?

interesting/puzzling.  but accepted.  *shrug*

 
While Woolworth's lunch counters may not have served haute cuisine, I have very fond memories of eating at those counters. Similarly, Greasy Nick's sounds like my kind of restaurant. Local hangouts are precisely the kind of places I want to visit, and I come to Roadfood to learn about these places.
 

 
If I wanted fine dining/haute cuisine, there are guidebooks galore. But I value the unique perspective Roadfood members can provide!

I wasn't talking about fine dining or haute cuisine in the quoted block, Hepcat, I was talking about good quality eats.

It seems to me that a lot of this comes down to what we consider a review.  Anyone can write about a place they visited in these forums and tell us what they think.  In that way, I want to read about the good, the bad and everything in between.  That's what the forums are for.
 
Then there is the formal reviews that are kept in the Roadfood restaurant database.  While it is true than anyone can submit a review, there are certain qualifications it has to meet (quality photos of the food, well written with descriptions of what the food tastes like, etc.) to get added to the Roadood review section.  I have a feeling (and please correct if this is wrong) that this is what TJ Jackson is talking about.  And I wholeheartedly agree with him, since the last thing we need is for that area to get filled up with reviews of mediocre or worse places.  It should be reserved for the best of the best Roadfood joints.

Right
 
When I search Roadfood, I want to assume anything listed is considered (by someone, preferably MS) to have good (or better) quality food. 
 
And yes, WJ, it'd be awesome if it was also regionally appropriate :-)
 
And yes, TTM, it'd be best if they were all open 24/7/365 :-)

Now that's weird!  Hepcat comes back and edits a post he made over 3 years ago on a thread that's been inactive for all that time.  You playing with us Hepcat?

Optical illusion. I posted on 28 December 2012 and edited my post less than an hour later. And CCinNJ was correct. It was to insert the picture of the kind of roadside restaurant I'd find difficult to resist. 
 
kozel You playing with us Hepcat? 

 
Always!

Yup, I misread the date of your post.  I saw the 7/13/09 and totally missed the 12/28/12 but did see the edited on 12/28/12. Mea culpa!
