    One of the first activities we do when planning a trip is to hit Roadfood and get some ideas of must-sees in the area. Who needs museums and tours when you can settle in for something yummy, local, and unique on vacation. Now there's something to write home about......having a great time, wish you were here eating with us! LOL

      http://www.roadfood.com/Reviews/Writeup.aspx?ReviewID=375&RefID=375


      thats the place Buffetbuster- thanks- we were there around 18 yrs ago - my then 2 year old son pitched a fit and my wife and i took turns eating and taking him outside while the other ate too quickly- the sign clinched the memory- that son is now starting his 3rd yr At Univ of Florida(2nd generation GATOR)and would deny the story, but its a great roadfood memory.

      the reason i like this thread so much is because -it recalls many fond memories some including good food and some not but all worthwhile. No boredom here.

      This re-read made me want to update the list- i've added and missed many places.

          I haven't kept track of all the places we have stopped that are or aren't on the Roadfood list... But I will complement the Stern's on encouraging us thru their writings, and more recently, their website and personal encounters, to take the time while we are on the road to explore some of the places we might have passed by in the past.

          For years "Getting There" was our goal. We have logged several 3 day rides between Louisville and SoCal, with drive-thru's and FF as the 'nourishment' consummed.

          Even our long Summer Roadtrips in the 90's (5 or 6 weeks each Summer) tended to be links between visits with family in varous parts of the country. Not any more. We tend to wander around and look at things that we find interest in as we go. Sometimes there is a reason...Sometimes none at all, but we love the more laid-back life-style we have found as we learn of "Roadfood" !

            Well said Mayor Al, the Roadfood visits sometimes were destinations, sometimes excuses to go out of the way (Lamberts comes to mind) but
            they were always shared with famuly and friends and made memories. Thanks Jane and Michael for the fun and great info!

                Your list is coming along nicely.....are you all up to date? What did you think fo Wiener's Circle?

                  BB - Not quite up to date yet...ah, the Wiener's Circle. The food was good to pretty good...the service and organization was a zero. There were 5 of us including two kids. We went for lunch on a beautiful Saturday in Chicago. The "line" is realatively small, perhaps 5-6 folks waiting. There were approximately 7 employees. There is no rhyme or reason to the ordering. It's a free-for-all. I must have repeated my order 6 or 7 times. Same for everyone. Nothing is written down, no lines so folks in back can yell out orders, no pick-up area, no payment area, everyone is going excuse me as they reach over and around...certainly the opposite of Portillos!

                  The food - I had a cheddar burger with everything, a char dog with cheddar and griled onions and fries. Other threads label the cheese as Merkt's. Several bags were squeezed out in front of me, none had a lable. I asked and got no where. The cheddar did not tatse the same as Paradise Pup.

                  Burger was cooked okay and with the condiments tasted pretty darn good. The dog was also pretty good. The fries were the best of the lot.

                  Perhaps one of the most disorganized places I have ever experienced.

                    That is too bad about your experience at Wiener's Circle. There are many good places for dogs in Chicago to put up with that. I went there as part of the Roadfood bus tour in 2005 and they seemed to handle the large crowd rather well.

                          I'm not "definite" on my other stops for Chicago yet but I'm definetely up for some company - I'm actually going to have a total of 3 stops- one being the Weiners Circle, I'm also going to do an Italian Beef stop (someplace other than Mr. Beef or Al's) and a Deep Dish Pizza stop (again something other than the obvious places mentioned time and time again) I know that Buddy Road House mentioned a place out in the Burbs which I'm considering and of course I'm open to any suggestions on an Italian Beef joint too!

                            I know everyone is all over the place on Italian beef places, but I have been a fan of Portillo's since the beginning days. A friend of mine was a Glen Ellyn cop at the time introduced me to them. It's a local chain all held within the family, the website below will give you locations around the Chicago area.

                            http://www.portillos.com/

                            BTW, you guys have been pretty quiet about your Omaha trip so far, should we worry?

                              No, just busy, no time to write.

                              I'm strictly relying on hotel computers since I don't own a laptop

                              Buffetbuster will complete the KC portion we'll most likely finish the remaining portion after we return from trip.

                              TTM does have a laptop so he may fill you in from time to time..

                              I'm tired [|)][|)]

                                Keep me posted on your travel dates. My email is checked regularly.

                                Buddy's pizza spot is pretty good and quite eclectic. Burt's Place is where Buddy hangs his hat on Saturday nights from October'ish through March'ish. Very good deep dish, funky set-up, trouble on Saturday nights.

                                For beefs, have you had Johnnies? - Great beef, pretty good fries, great lemon ice.

                                    All of these lists are very impressive. I traveled for 20 years and have never kept a list. I should start, but could never catch up. I can not keep my expenses straight, so how could I list the places I have ate at. Good Job.

                                      I have no idea how many roadfood joints I've been to. I started when I was a long-haul trucker in the early eighties with an old copy of roadfood. What I've learned is that I'd rather have a crappy burger like Dyer's with my friends, than have a great burger by myself. Thanks to all that I've dined with, and to those with whom I will dine in the future.

                                        Well, the majority of these places I visited when gas was still under $1.50 a gallon. Remember THOSE days????


                                        It's like Deja Vu all over again.

                                          Buffetbuster, I'm hot on your trail.

                                          I think I need to hit more official joints.

                                            BB: You should write a book on all the places you have visited along with your pics. Your royalties should be very good.

                                              Thanks Paul, but I am much better at eating than writing. I will leave that to the professionals!

                                                I was actually thinking about an elite icon. Maybe this?

                                                I think Jozsa earned a also.

                                                      When I checked Posts Last Visited for this thread this 12/24/08 morning I saw that Buffetbuster was the last poster. Unfortunately, this thread does not work like the old forum. It gets confused if someone edits an old post. If you select First New Posts (the icon next to the thread title in the first column) it will take you to the first post in this six page thread. If you select Last Post (the icon that was next to Buffetbuster's name in the right column) it will take you to the last new post that was on 12/10/08 on the last page and not Buffetbuster's post that I think may be on the 3rd page.

I've got to get on the ball and start doing something about that. Now that I'm retired, I'm finally in a position to start improving my list. I plan on joining you in Memphis and Greenville next month, so that should be a good start, huh?               Bob

                                                          Bob,

                                                          It's never to late to start embarking  on the path to great Roadfood.

                                                          I hope you can join us and look forward to meeting you.
