That's what i get for having a job that allowed me to travel, there were still hundreds more I would love to visit and hundreds more that should be on there but weren't listed with roadfood.
also a lot of those came becuase I lived in the area at that time.
Boston, Rochester, Chicago, Atlanta, Louisiana, and Cincy, were good starting points for my adventures.

My travels have slowed down, so I am only hitting the rust belt and south east, now.

I need to win the lottery so I can travel full time!!

I'm disappointed in the number of entries (or lack of) from Arizona. We have some fantastic local places here that rival anything anywhere else. Maybe I'll have to start my own Arizona Road Food list...sounds like a noble pursuit, eh?

Desert,
If you're going to do that, could you please rattle off your top 10 hot dog places?

Hey Bear,

In Phoenix, there is only one place to get a proper Hot Dog, and that would be TED'S.

WanderingJew, I'm thinking that you're not checking this thread any more, but I'll take a shot.

On you orig list, you gave Rein's Deli in Vernon/Rockville, CT a couple of ??.

Do you recall why?

I'm asking because my inlaws live about 5 miles from the shop. Their takeout is very high quality, as long as you're not in a hurry (or if you call ahead).

Years ago, I ate in the restaurant (prob the first one that burned down), and thought the service was slow, and when we take a family road trip, Reins is the most convenient place to stop for breakfast. Every time we (meaning I) go there, I have to wait about 20-30 minutes for our order, and we're not picky - typically, it's 2 bacon egg and cheese sams, and 2 bagels with cream cheese, nothing difficult.

Actually, you're wrong, I am checking it out.
I found Reins horribly dissappointing, compared to the Deli's in the NYC area, it's been a long time- 7 years, but I recall everything to be very bland.
Besides, Central Connecticut is not the place for Kosher Deli's anyway. I'm a strict regionalist. A better option a couple of miles away is Tasty Chick, try the Chicken Pies- They're homemade!- Now that's a TRUE GEN-U-WINE Central Connecticut regional specialty.

Mr Chips, did you just update your list in an old post? I believe that is what happened when I clicked on the last message mini icon and got your list. If so, to all maintaining lists please bold orred to highlight your new additions and of course remove the highlight from previous updates. That would help us readers a lot.

I decided to mark off the recommendations with * and dissapointments with ?

Restaurants in Red are those that have been recently updated since my original post either because I have subsequently visited them or because they have subsequently been added to Roadfood.

I decided to add restaurants listed in the Roadfood/Eat Your Way Across The USA books that were not listed on the Website- These restaurants are in BLUE

List is completely updated as of 2/14
denotes that to the best of my knowledge that the Restaurant is currently out of business


Thanks for the updated list. That was a lot of work to update, but a good indexing scheme nonetheless. Sorry to see that Ulgesich's and Second Ave Deli are out of business.

WJ, that is a lot of restaurants. I doubt if anyone on this forum besides the Sterns comes anywhere near your record.

I'm eventually going to add the year that I last visited these places.
My memory is pretty sharp (and so are my notes!)

I'll be adding at least 3 more restaurants after the Austin Trip

Cajunking also has quite an impressive list. I am envious of folks like this. I thought with my list I was pretty well traveled, but nothing compared to WJ, Cajunking, and Mr Chips.

I liked WJ's idea so I have decided to post the date of my last visit to the restaurants that have been mentioned in the books or on the website. There are 3 or 4 places where I ate where I just can't recall the name of the place in Colorado,Louisiana and California.

Buffetbuster,

Your list definetely puts mine to shame.

You might want to double check on the Bocce Club, although I haven't been there in years, I'm pretty certain they're still around.

Thanks and I am definitely jealous of the many places you have been to that I haven't. Especially the places that are now closed.

I was on a plane from Providence to Pittsburgh last Fall and I sat next to a real nice young guy from Woonsocket. I asked about the Bocce Club and he is the one who told me it was closed. Of course, he could very easily be wrong. I hate to hear about Roadfood places closing so I am hoping you are correct. I will try calling in the next few days.

WJ and Buffet: Both of you guys have visited a lot of Sterns restaurants. I did not bother to count. Who has the record?

I'm sure there are people out there who have been to even more Roadfood places than WJ and I. They just might not necessarily post here.

When I ate at Nye's Polonaise Room in Minneapolis in 2000, my waitress noticed my Eat Your Way Across the USA book. She said a retired couple had stopped in the week before on a cross country drive to California. She looked at their book and they had been just about everywhere. When she asked where I was from I said Pittsburgh. She said, "That's where these folks were from. Don't you people in Pittsburgh have anything better to do?" Apparently not!

The owner of Bocce Club just returned my call and they are still open. This is definitely good news. That is what I get for listening to someone on a plane!

By the way, he had a very thick Italian accent, which has to be a good sign.

Buffetbuster,

I knew the Bocce Club still had to be open since I still see advertising in the Providence Phoenix for the lounge acts that perform there on the weekends.
A year or two ago, something similar happenned to me, I was talking to an attorney from Atlanta and I mentioned I had been to Mary Mac's Tea Room, he told me that they had recently closed that the owner decided to retire. I went onto their website- and it was still active- I called and confirmd that they were still open and in business.

Paul, I have 199 restaurants listed, a technicality can either bring it down to 198 or up to 200. You see I've been to Emmett Watsons in Seattle but did not eat there- I just imbibed in beer. recently I noticed a listing for Fatheads in Pittsburgh was also added, I've been there too but never ate there- again I just had a few beers there, I didn't add it to my list and I'm not sure if I should. I'm thinking if hadn't eaten there then I really shouldn't include it so I think I'm going to delete Emmett Watson's from my list.

Not that it matters but I think your distinction is the right one, WJ. I think you should probably eat at a place before it counts.
