If you ever did decide to make up a list of all the places you have sampled the pork tenderloin, I'm sure many of us here, including me, would love to see it.



Not quite a list but I think I have posted just about every pork tenderloin review with pictures in the thread I did not even start...

http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=423

I've done the same with the walleye sandwich in a thread that I did start...

http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=9729

I also keep my own web site photo gallery and blog on them.

In the future I kind of like the new Trips forum especially now that I have boosted my band width to see the many posted pictures. You might gather I am a picture guy.

    The question. Do you only count those in a Stern's book or review here or do you count all places you consider roadfoad?




    Davydd,

    I count all the restaurants that have been reviewed here as well as the restaurants from the Roadfood books. The only ones I don't include are the restaurants posted for the first time on Roadfood as a result of a review that I completed (so far there are only 2)

    BTW, thanks for the info on the Lake Superior Circle tour


    WJ,

    I think you should include your 2 as well. As one of the premier posters on this forum, I've followed some of your suggestions (most recently Ichiban in PB) and have to say you know what you are writing about. I trust your judgment.


    Thanks for the compliment Tam,
    however I want to thank the Sterns for writing about it in their Eat Your Way Across the USA book

    Davydd,

    Speaking of tenderloins,

    I will be in Indianapolis over labor day weekend and will have time for one BPT. I can't get the photo of the BPT from Billy O'Neals out of my head so I guess that's where I'll be going!

      RE: These are the places I visited on Roadfood Wed, 07/18/07 4:41 PM (permalink)
      I added two stops to my "Roadfood Places I have visited" list this week:

      COFFEE AN, Westport, CT- I had some time to kill before a meeting in Darien, so I found this place using the maps feature that came with my new "Insider" membership. The coffee was just so-so, but the chocolate donuts were outstanding. Well worth the visit.

      WESTFAIR FISH AND CHIPS, Westport, CT- I chose this place for a quick lunch over Swanky's because I had a lot of driving to do the rest of that day, and deep fried franks don't always sit so well. MAN OH MAN did I ever choose wrong. Everything at Westfair was tasty and seemingly fresh (I had a hot lobster roll and a small order of fried belly clams), but I got VERY, VERY sick later that night. Fresh shellfish is a bit of a crapshoot, and I understand that it's not possible for restaurants to find every bad clam, but BOY did I get a bad one. I have not been that sick in a long time. I'm not slamming Westfair Fish and Chips over this, but take if for what it's worth, I did get sick from their food.

      Note: I was considering starting a new thread in the seafood forum to notify potential visitors to this place based on this negative experience, but I'm not sure that it's the proper thing to do, since it was an isolated incident. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

        Billy O'Neal's would be a great choice. Its location is not the greatest in a neighborhood strip center but it is definitely a neighborhood place and not a high-powered place to go place. There is a story behind the name. It used to be called Major Toohey's. A high school classmate of mine, Billy O'Neal, used to be a regular every day after work for many years. He was a great guy and a great athlete in his time as an Indiana All-Star high school basketball player and great running back on our undefeated football team. Unfortunately he passed away a few years ago. In his honor the pub changed its name. It makes for a better Irish pub name as well.

        I'm returning in at the end of this for the Brickyard 400 NASCAR race so hopefully will have a couple more to report on. Then I will be there again in October.

          Crap! I own that book, just haven't read it in a while. Thanks for letting me know, I have to update my list now on this very thread!

            Absolutely nothing to add to my measly list from 2005, except maybe three from different states I travelled through years and years ago that I forgot to put on the original post. I'm not even gonna bother. WJ is definitely the "go-to" guy for recommendations, and gives me inspiration, always giving me that "urge for goin'". Whoever said this thread was boring should have just clicked out; you saw the thread's title.

              We just added Arthur Bryant's Kansas City

              We also went to Gates Barbeque in Kansas City, which I notice, isn't among the Roadfood "chosen".

                I'm having a difficult time tracking down the old posts for all who add places you visit on Roadfood. Rather than editing your old posts and adding a new place, couldn't you just do an update? Buffetbuster and Wanderjew, I'm talking to you guys in particular.

                  Zataar, any updates on my part are usually in "red" unless it's a "newly added to roadfood" restaurant which I previously visited, then it will be in "green"

                  I recently just took a hard look at my favorites (*) and dissapointments (?) and re-edited same, so nothing new on my part.

                    Thanks WJ. That's very helpful!
                    There are 5 pages so far for this topic now. It's great to see where everyone has been.

                            I sure wish there was a way to tweak out a full list.

                            Trying to remember each one individually, without prompts, is too frustrating.

                            Anybody got a full list to work with.

                              Sorry Gregg, there are just too many for me to have a complete list. Currently, there are 1,222 here on this site alone with well over a 1,000 (I'm guessing) that have appeared in JMS books not reviewed here. Fortunately, I started checking them off in my books early on.

                              I believe I have most, if not all of the Roadfood, Goodfood or Eat Your Way books. If I can help, please ask!

                                I was simply going to suggest using buffetbuster's, wanderingjew's, and maybe a few others' posted lists as a point of origin. I know that I have been to very few places that neither of those guys have! Also, I have a hard time remembering places that I went to before I got obsessive about taking pictures of food!

                                  All I've gotta say is WOW! Not only is every place listed in alphabetical order but color coded too!! The next task is to list each establishments signature food item buy caloric count...

                                      Okay now that he has updated again, I think we need clarification on this one.

                                      Which place was it??

                                        Tadich has recently added to the website but has been in the roadfood books for years.

                                        I think Buffetbuster is referring to my " " on Harold's BBQ

                                          I've been to about a fourth of the places initially mentioned and generally agree with your ratings, with the following exceptions-

                                          Aunt Carrie's - Narragansett, RI - over rated (especially vs. Champlins)
                                          Corky's - Brentwood, TN - very over rated - much prefer the dry rub style of Parkers, Wilbur's, etc
                                          Dixie Crossroads- Titusville, FL - outstanding rock shrimp - a real treat
                                          Southern Kitchen - New Market, VA - quite disappointed
                                          Mary Mac's Tea Room - Atlanta - a must for southern style vegetables, etc
                                          Iggy's Doughboys - Warwick, RI - OK for its location, but inferior to Buttonwoods Fish & Chips


                                          A few you didn't mention & very worthy of a stop:

                                          Wien-o-Rama - Cranston, RI - gold standard for NY systems
                                          Ridgewood - gold standard for fresh cut fries (Al's French Fries in Burlington, VT runner up) & BBQ beans with excellent BBQ
                                          Dixie BBQ - Johnston City, TN - Excellent BBQ

                                          Cole Farms - Gray, ME - excellent local comfort food
                                          Moody's - Waldoboro, ME - very good pies & local comfort food, especially breakfast
                                          Red's Eats - Wiscasset, ME - gold standard for lobster roll
                                          The Lobster Shack - Cape Elizabeth, ME - excellent seafood, & outstanding scenery
                                          Kelly's Roast Beef - Revere, MA - excellent roast beef - on par with Beef Baron in Woonsocket RI
                                          Harry's Drive-In - Colchester, CT - Muckies hotdogs, burgers, shakes & even fried clams are outstanding
                                          Jerry's Pizza - Middletown, CT - best pizza outside of New Haven
                                          Lenny & Joe's Fish Tale - Westbrook, CT - excellent fried seafood
                                          Melear's - Fayetteville, GA - excellent BBQ, second only to the Red Pig - also in Fayetteville, GA
                                          Polly's Pancake Parlor - Sugar Hill, NH - excellent Pancakes - on par with Audra's in East Greenwich, RI, Modern Diner in Pawtucket, RI and Breakfast Break in Clinton, CT
                                          Cock Of The Walk - Natchez, MS - gold standard for catfish

                                            mjambro,

                                            I'm not sure whose list you're referring to since there are several lists on this thread.
                                            If you're referring to mine, I only mentioned roadfood places listed on the website and in the book- therefore I didn't mention places like wienorama or al's french fry.
                                            I didn't really rate Aunt Carrie's- although I can never get passed their clamcakes and "rhode island red" chowder (and no it's not Manhattan Clam Chowder)

                                            I've been dissapointed with Iggy's the last couple of times I went.

                                            and I still enjoy Olneyville NY System over Wienorama. (although I'll take a Detroit Style Coney over both anyday!)

                                              Great work! I have always avoided this thread because I thought it was just brag lists (although there are some). Your notes on closed/disappointed/favorite are a help. Am I correct in understanding that your list is Roadfood.com restaurants only? BTW, when I first read of your dining experience on Bourbon Street, I guessed that it was Cajun Cabin. I had some great crawfish there in 1990.


                                              @The Travelin Man:

                                              Yours is a great list, too. Is your list solely from the web site, or does it include book-only restaurants? (or vice versa)

Your notes on closed/disappointed/favorite are a help. Am I correct in understanding that your list is Roadfood.com restaurants only? BTW, when I first read of your dining experience on Bourbon Street, I guessed that it was Cajun Cabin. I had some great crawfish there in 1990.

                                                My list includes restaurants from the website and from the book
                                                It's not a bragging list at all - to me it's a tracking list, however overall I think it's a list that illustrates what this website is all about.

                                                    Absolutely,

                                                    Going back to 1987. In fact the older books (pre 2002) hold even more value in my opinion since it includes restaurants that unfortunately are no longer with us but had more "unique regionality" than some of the restaurants included in the newer books.
