Amid all the beautiful scenery, wildlife, and historic sites, your best shot was in the Sign Museum in Cincinnati.
 
Looks like a place we need to visit during April's Chili Crawl.

Re:My Year in Roadfood (2013) 2013/12/16 09:23:32
Did you know that there are other desserts besides pie?  Yeah, I was shocked to find that out, too.
 
Top 10 Desserts (Non-Pie Division)
 
10. Al's Corner Restaurant - Barberton, OH

I was the first customer to walk through the door when Al's opened on a blustery January morning.  Even though it was listed on the board as being available, I was told the cherry strudel was still in the oven.  Like magic, they brought it to my table just as I was finishing the chicken paprikash.  Perfectly tart cherries in a still hot, flaky crust, this was the perfect ending to a first-class Hungarian meal.
 
9. Florentine Pastry Shop - Utica, NY

You can buy your pusties with different fillings, like the vanilla shown in the photo, but it is the buttery crust that envelops the custard that puts it on this list. 
 
8. Wayside Restaurant - Berlin, VT

Wayside restaurant makes some fine pies, including a terrific maple cream, but it is the grape nuts pudding that always shines for me off the dessert menu.
 
7. Bette's Oceanview Diner - Berkeley, CA

I don't drink coffee, so there was doubt if the famous chocolate espresso twinkie would appeal to me, but it is dark and delicious, obviously using high quality ingredients.
 
6. Germantown Commissary - Germantown, TN

Although the bbq at Germantown Commissary paled in comparison to some of the others enjoyed on the Roadfood bus tour, the banana pudding was a star!  Very fresh tasting, with just the right mix of custardy pudding, vanilla wafers and cut up banana slices.
 
5Palateria Michoacana de Paquime - Albuquerque, NM

We made multiple visits to this Albuquerque dessert store that specializes in paletas, which are basically Mexican popsicles.  My choice of grape was certainly good enough, but my girlfriend went with a combination, which included fresh kiwi, cantaloupe, pineapple, mango and cherry.  You could clrealy taste each fruit as you bit into. 
 
4. Polonia Café - Polonia, WI 

The motive to visit this small town café two hours north of Madison was to try their highly regarded banana cream pie, but I came away most impressed with the pistachio torte, a Wisconsin only dessert.  It was light, with a real whipped topping, a strong pistachio flavor and a graham cracker bottom layer.
 
3Isaiah's - Montgomery, AL

This great little soul food restaurant, attached to a bed and breakfast, closed down in 2013.  A great loss for sure, especially for that peach cobbler in a tulip glass.  I really liked the mix of fresh peaches, lots of breading and a strong cinnamon flavor.
 
2. Le Churro - New York, NY

Just a few doors down from the Lexington Candy Shop, this was one of the highlights of the New York City get together in October.  The churros themselves were wonderful, but when covered in the high quality, not too sweet chocolate, it was truly something special.  They use that same chocolate in the hot cocoa, which my  girlfriend is still talking!
 
1. Jeni's Fresh Ice Cream - Nashville, TN

Two of my favorite things are dark chocolate and peppermint and Jeni's puts them together as a Christmas time special.  It is outrageously good!

I doubt I could be an exceptional roadfooder because I simply cannot eat that much dessert as I get older. However, I do on occasion chase after a pie and do so because I always have buffetbuster in the back of my mind when in a restaurant.

Re:My Year in Roadfood (2013) 2013/12/17 13:08:31
A new category this year.....
 
Best Waitress

This is Natalie from Zweig's Grill in Watertown, WI.  Maybe saying she was the best waitress from the past year is overstating it, but there is no one who was more fun or more memorable.
 
When I sat down at the counter, she stuck her hand out and said, "Hi, I'm Natalie."  Well, we are all used to having waiters or waitresses tell us their names.  So, it never occurred to me to tell her my name, too.  When I didn't respond properly, she faked indignation and said, "And you are?"  Zweig's is not the type of place where you go and eat an anonymous meal.  You are brought into the group and the discussion, even if you are a stranger.  I loved the place immediately.
 
When it came to ordering, I told Natalie I was there for the burger. 

From there, it was no longer my decision, as she told me what she was going to make, which turned out to be a double with fried onions and pepperjack cheese, because it was her favorite.  And it was really, really good.
 
Soon, I was on another waitresses' cell phone (truthfully, the entire staff here is incredibly lively), as she put me on the phone with a friend of hers who was at the Brewers game as they tried to remember the name of the town near Pittsburgh where their mutual friend, who still has Zweig's brats shipped to him, moved to!  Got that?  When the burger was done, Natalie just stood there, letting me know I wasn't getting my food until I snapped her photo, all while still talking to the woman at the Brewers game.  The whole experience was slightly crazy, but incredibly fun at the same time.
 
My advice is to go to Zweig's and definitely sit at the counter.  No doubt you will enjoy it as much as I did.

Zweig's is a Contingent favorite for both its outstanding Burgers and homey service and atmosphere.
 
The group stopped there toward the end of our Jefferson County, Wisconsin tour last year.  We were all so stuffed, with more stops yet to come, we only ate half Burgers each.  Mrs. Roadhouse and I made a point of revisiting Zweig's on our autumn circle tour of the state.  We each enjoyed full Burgers and the total "counter experience".
 
Excellent pick bb!

Since we were there to attend a wedding and quite a few other Roadfooders were attending, I did not do a trip report.  Instead, billyboy and I contributed to wanderingjew's excellent report.  Thank you so much for asking, though.

Contingent approved!  It is easy to see why it is a group favorite.

buffetbuster - This is a great recognition for Natalie. I told my daughter (who lives in Watertown and is a Zweig's regular) to tell Natalie about this honor.
 
Cliff's story is hilarious and I can vouch for it. We ate at Zweig's a few weeks after he ate there and we asked Natalie & Carol about him. buffetbuster may have been as memorable to them, as Natalie was to him. As they explained what happened, it sounded like something from a 1960's sitcom.

After Buffetbuster, Mariton and I went to Bailey & Cato's, I kept thinking about those smoked and baked neckbones.  Today being Tuesday, I went back to see whether they could possibly be as good as I thought they were.  In short, they are.  For six bucks, you get enough bones to feed two hungry people.  In a place like Incanto in San Francisco, you'd be happy to pay 30 dollars for that plateful of food.  They don't know how to cook vegetables, but those pork bones are insanely good.

Wow, I love it! I wish I could be at Sambo's Tavern right now, although I could also be happy at Billy's B-B-Q or most of the others. The only one I really don't feel the love for is the Foley Coffee Shop. I've been there 4 or 5 times and each time I thought the food mediocre and the service so-so. Sandwiches usually had a piece of wilted lettuce on the side. I kept going back over the years, trying to taste the magic others have talked about it, but so far it has eluded me. Outside of that, I think I'd be happy with any of them. 
Did you get any pictures of the crab and alligator breads at Boudin Bakery?

Beer Cheese Grits - Red State BBQ (Lexington, KY)
For something made with beer and cheese that bowl is entirely too small.

Love the pic's from Tadich Grill...they are all great, but two of my favorites are those items. They also do a great corned beef with cabbage.

Cliff, you went back to Arthur Bryant's this year? I remember how disappointed you were with the food on your previous visit. How did you like it this time?

Gawd I love this!  One thing that might be nice is if you put some form of rating/comment with each picture.............or are they all 10's.  LOL.but then, if you did that, you'd never have time to finish and go off and try new things!

Wow!  Just Wow!
 
One question - how were the smoked neckbones at Bailey & Cato's in Nashville.  My wife and I weren't quite so adventurous when we went there.  I think I had pork and she had chicken both of which were very good.

Cliff - This latest post is a cool idea.

Any ideas how many restaurants you ate it in 2013? I put the over-under at 900.
Well, I went on three trips with ChiTownDiner, where he dragged me to an average of about 300 restaurants per trip, so I am thinking you should take the over!

INCREDIBLE  300 restaurants per trip.  I do not even approach that in a year.
