Name that Roadfood Restaurant!! Thu, 05/21/09 5:16 PM (permalink)
As an homage to this thread on the Roadfood Digest, I have been inspired to see if anyone else is interested in having a little fun with our Roadfood travels.  Periodically, I will post a photo from an outing at a Roadfood-reviewed restaurant, and anyone who doesn't think that this is the stupidest thing since Miss Teen South Carolina can guess where the photo was taken.  I will try to do varying degrees of difficulty - some photos may be an incredibly small crop - others may be full photos.  I will try not to make things completely obvious.  Just to get the feet wet, I will start off with an easy one.



All prize items are valued inclusive of GST and The Travelin' Man takes no responsibility for any variation in item values.  Any taxes which may be payable as a consequence of a winner receiving the prize are the sole responsibility of that winner.  Prizes are non-transferable and may not be redeemed for cash.  If the specified prize becomes unavailable due to unforeseen circumstances, The Travelin' Man may substitute a prize of like or equal value.
  Any tax payable as a result of a prize being awarded or received will be the winner’s responsibility.  Prizes must be claimed in person unless winner is otherwise advised.  ID which includes a photograph, will be required. The collection of prizes is the sole responsibility of the winner. The Travelin' Man takes no responsibility for prizes that are lost or damaged when posted.  Prizes will only be awarded following winner validation and verification.

Good luck.  Oh...and there are no prizes.

    I think the ashtrays point to North Carolina....that's as close as I can get...

        @ AHI - The ash trays may be lead you down the wrong path.  This photo was taken a few years ago.

        @ MiamiDon - Sure...the more the merrier.  But, I think that it might be easier to do one at a time.  As soon as someone guesses this one correctly, I'd say you can do the next one if you like.  If you want me to throw out the first few until folks get the hang of it - well, then we can do it that way, too.  Of course, there may be all of the three of us interested in this, so it may not matter at all. 

        I still think that this one will get done fairly quickly.  I feel that there are some pretty distinctive clues in there (though the ash trays steered AHI as(h)tray!).  I am sure one of the regular Road Warriors will claim it sooner or later.  But, if I don't hear anything here for awhile, I will post the answer.

          Cool Game!

          Those condiments say that I've never been there.

            The place has a Texas feel about it.  I will guess Louie Mueller's.

            Whether I am right or wrong, this is fun.  Keep them coming!

                Okay gang lets get our CSI hats on and figure this out!!!  the table is scarred with what may be HOT cast iron skillet placement.....there is a vinegar-y looking condiment on the table... or is that cinnamon listerine for freshening up?!...also  a small radiator so it must get "cold" sometimes Hmmmmm? I'm flummoxed.

                      After looking at the photos on the Louie Mueller's review, I'm feeling better about my guess.  Still don't know for sure, though.

                        BuffetBuster, I was thinking the same thing, but the school desks threw me for a curve ball -   I don't recall them having any.

                          Same ashtrays, salt and pepper shakers, bottles of vinegar and hot sauce as in the Louie Mueller google, therefore I pronounce it Louie Muellers!!!! You win Buffetbuster!

                            Upon even closer inspection that "white sauce" is a bottle of toothpicks!! Good job BB! I'd better head back to CSI school.....

                              Stephen-
                              That is the reason I wasn't 100% sure.  That and the lack of a smoky mist that always seemed to be in the air at Louie Mueller's and Smitty's.

                              AHI MPLS-
                              No, I really liked the way you reasoned it out.  I had a bit of an unfair advantage, having been to Louie Mueller's a couple of times before and knowing that my buddy Travelin Man has to visit Texas a lot for work.  I bet you get the next one!

                                Since Travelin Man has not responded so far today, it is safe to assume that he is living up to his sobriquet.  So I will throw a pic on here and see if anyone can guess it:



                                This is a place that is reviewed here on the site.

                                  Sorry....have had a bit of a rough morning, but you sleuths did, in fact, pull it out.  We may have to excuse Buffetbuster from this game for the first full day that any picture is posted! 

                                  Louie Meuller's BBQ it is.  The picture was taken on my first visit there - in maybe 2003/2004?? in the room adjoining the main dining room where the pits/food line is.  The bottle in question, is an old glass Listerine bottle that contains some of Meuller's excellent dipping sauce - has something of a kick.  I believe that the "white BBQ sauce" bottle also contains toothpicks.  Sorry - wicked lighting.

                                  I don't think I know where buffetbuster's picture is from, but I suspect that they make a better than decent milkshake!  As soon as someone guesses Cliff's entry, I know MiamiDon wanted to post one, too.  I have a couple more up my sleeve!!!

                                        WOW,  look at all of those Italian soda flavors.

                                        Someone left a buck tip.

                                        The waitress is smiling.

                                        I have no idea.

                                          I forgot about the buck tip.  There was a couple there, who ordered all kinds of food including desserts and together left $1.00.  Jerks! 

                                           
                                          My plate was up where the waitress is walking.  And TTM is right.....they make a great milkshake!

                                                Is that Rutt's Hut in New Jersey? I've never been there, but I saw it on a PBS show about hot dogs.

                                                    Is that Rutt's Hut in New Jersey? I've never been there, but I saw it on a PBS show about hot dogs.

                                                      Glad to see this thread has some popularity.

                                                      Here is one that I have not yet posted from some recent travels.  Again, I think this one is easy - but, then again, I ate there!

                                                        Does the fact that I was with you when you took this photo preclude me from guessing?
