    Dinska, I'm just a little south of St Charles and wander up your way from time to time. I'd love some tips on good places to eat, we enjoy all sorts of ethnic food but a good diner works too!

      Thanks for the welcome guys, nice to 'meet' you. I get down to both of your haunts, really. Kland01s' more than the former, of course.

        I'm not new but I don't have many posts here...

        This is my latest blog. It has some bad language (which I don't normally use) but it will help you understand my life.

I'm also a huge animal lover and have two dogs,one cat, a rat ,two tropical aquariums and eight parrots. Did i mention i love animals>....?lol.

Every friday 13th thousands of bikers ride to dover for this big event and our small town is taken over by over one hundred thousand people and is alot of fun.

                Welcome Scott--if your relation to Joe is any indication you'll be starting trouble soon.  :)  Tell me, does he ever bring Bay Corn to Christmas?

                    Hi. I just joined today. I don't do much Roadfood as don't get away much but love reading about it. The reason I joined today was I was using my Square Meals book by Jane and Michael as I love the recipe for Maggie's Coca-Cola basted ham for Easter Dinner. I decided to look up the book and came across the forum. Been reading on and off today as I prepared Easter dinner. Kate

                          Hi:
                          Hi just joined. Thought it might be interesting as I'm traveling around the country for the next few 3 months on a motorcycle.
                          Yesterday I submitted a couple of restaurants I found to be wonderful in some obscure parts of the country.
                          I just checked and saw that they didn't get posted,
                          probably being screened to protect the precious advertisers.............how boring.
                           I probably wont bother submitting again.
                          Seems like a lot of the submissions are restaurant owner spam......really boring!
                          also the forum doesn't support the firefox spellchecker, this will probably be my only post.

                            Bush Pilot, don't go away! We will want to hear about your travels around the country! BTW, I have been traveling to Santa Fe for 25 years now, love the place and have good friends there. Stick around.

                              You are free to post anything (as long as it doesn't violate forum rules) in the appropriate sections of the forum without any review or waiting. Formal reviews submitted for the restaurant section are reviewed to be sure they are complete. There is not a large paid staff waiting to leap into action when you submit something, so the process may take a couple of days. 

                              The forum does have a built in spell check.

                                    C'mon, Bush Pilot, give roadfood.com a chance! It's a great website and, if you stick around, you'll find that we're all a pretty decent bunch of folks. You'll learn about some wonderful places to eat, too.

                                        You are so right about this being a great site with people who are a pleasure to be around.  I've only been posting for about a year or so but have gotten tremendously kind responses.  I've been fortunate enough to meet a few folks already and have really enjoyed meeting them.  To the new members, welcome and jump on in.  You'll find this an informative site, and you'll learn stuff that you never thought of before (such as how good New Haven pizza is, for example).

                                          Haven't really got a feel for it yet (posting that is...)   I sort of snuck on 'cause I'm from Australia and I am planning a trip over to your country and found this wonderful site....I love food and it's good to get a feel for what I'm in for.    We are planning to drive from New Orleans to Los Angeles...I know it's a long haul...me and my buddy Daryl have been in the transport industry here in Oz for years so we are looking forward to the miles and miles and miles...We are going to buy a car instead of rent one.  Anyway BIG hello to all you people

                                            Hello Jams, Welcome to RF !! It's a lot of fun. I especially enjoy the silly arguements about condiments...  Please keep posting and tell us about Aussie food, I'm curious to know if it's divided into regional specialty areas ie: Southern bbq in Mel. lobsters in Cairns smoothies in Perth?! Hmmm interesting.   Enjoy your trip!!  Peace, Dawn

                                                Greetings All:

                                                I had decided that eating is much more than an mere act of sustenance.  It has attained the status of at least a hobby for me and my wife.  So, you can imagine my delight in finding Roadfood.com - a chance to associate with others of my own kind.

                                                My wife and I like to travel, usually by car, taking the backroads as much as possible and eating mostly in mom-and-pop owned restaurants.  Roadfood.com has been a great help in our quest to find yet another interesting place to eat!

                                                I am an aging baby-boomer (born in 1947).  We have two grown sons, two daughters-in-law and three grandchildren, all of whom we enjoy immensely.  We count ourselves blessed to live not more than two hours or so from them.  We have lived in east-central Illinois since 1982 - Mattoon is a town of less than 20,000 - three hours south of Chicago, 2.4 hours northeast of St. Louis and two hours west of Indianapolis.  In our travels, we like to attend small town festivals which include music of one type or another - and food!

                                                That's it for me for now, I guess.

                                                Mike Sneddon

                                                  Hello to jams, ysumlin and to Mike.  Jams that's a fun drive; I did it about ten years ago at Christmas and you will definitely find a few things to eat along the way.

                                                    How are you, not sure if I'm in the right place so I thought I should ask. I own a service company with many associates involved in the installation, maintenance and service of food service equipment in Connecticut. A lot of companies in these industries have gone out of business in the past year and has left this area short on cooking, refrigeration, heating and a/c service contractors. Since this forum already exists what my intentions are as well as to praise the well run and maintained restaurants is to point out what businesses you should avoid. Last year I lost $383,000.00 in unpaid invoices for services rendered to stores and restaurants. Some due to business being slow because of the economy but the majority was just lack of payment by owners that had no intention of paying their bill before they even called me for service. I basically lost my savings which was intended for my daughters college education and she graduates next year and I am facing 3 to 4 thousand dollars a month in tuition payments. Although financially devastating I try to take an objective look at any given set of circumstances and make honest judgments. I am looking for a place where factual information about a restaurant or any food service company can be posted. I am one of the people that go into thousands of restaurants a year and people in my position know exactly what places are safe to eat at and which ones should be avoided at all costs. I am an honest person and run a very honest business. Any information I post would be factual, with pictures that are easily obtained, if requested. And if there is a company out there that owes me money I will not disparage their food or service based on their financial practices and vise versa I will not praise a company based on their ability to pay their bills. Just honest information based on my first hand accounts and the accounts of other service companies. There may be talk of financial matters and disparaging information about places you may have eaten at but anything I post will be 100% accurate or I will keep my opinion on any matters that I am not informed about to myself. Am I in the right Place? If there is already an area on this forum specific to the Connecticut area, can someone point me to it?

                                                        Hello all,

                                                        My niece was fooling around on the web and found an old post about a restaurant my family owned for nearly 30 years and while she was too young to remember the place, I was prompted by my mother (the manager) to reply and correct a minor error. Since I had to register to reply, here I am. After looking around a bit, I decided I liked the place and intend to stick around. This place is a natural for me as I love to eat, (one look at me and it would be obvious) and I'm a truck driver. I currently do short haul and go home every day but I ran from coast to coast for a number of years and the wife and I do several road trips a year. When we hit the road, we're always looking for local flavor when we stop for food. Last July we did a 16 state, 2600 mile loop from here in Indiana to the ocean (Atlantic), all the way up to Kittery, Maine, across to Michigan and back home.

                                                        Besides eating and traveling, I play guitar and bass, like to fish when time allows, am a geocacher and a professional message board lurker. We have 1 offspring left at home, currently enrolled at an Indiana University satellite campus, and the wife teaches high school science. But enough about me.
