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

Harold's BBQ and Joe Roger's Chili Parlor are  so far the only two restaurants to earn a since they were  absolutely nauseating

Restaurants added in 2012

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  07/19/12      
 
denotes that to the best of my knowledge that the Restaurant is currently out of business

***New Restaurants reviewed by me and added to Roadfood will not be added to the list unless someone else reviews said restaurant***

A favorite?? I wouldn't even know which one to pick out. There were a couple that disappointed me- Pat's King of Steaks and Reins Deli.

I'll actually be in NC memorial day week, but I'm going to be in the Charlotte area. Won't know if I'll have time to make it to the eastern end of the state.

Dearfolk,
My first out-of-book Roadfood experience was when I detoured through Laurinburg, North Carolina in 1979 to eat lunch at Mrs. Forde's Coffee Shop. She was quite a character....
My most stellar one was eating at The Norske Nook in Osseo, Wisconsin in 1982... and eating... and eating... and eating.
And, hopefully, many, many more to come. Plus a plethora of tips to report when I am back on the road.
Only Somewhat Bookishly, Ort. Carlton in Warming Athens, Georgia.

Cafe du Monde - New Orleans, LA





Good list. Interesting that there's only one entry from New Orleans. Must have been a very short trip. I think you can start to amend the list by going to the joint near your job that you mentioned never having gone to in another thread. Must be a story behind why you haven't been there.

I sat down awhile ago with all my different editions of Roadfood going back to the earliest editions and started counting places. Factoring in the website reviews, my total is over 300, a number which has been significantly beefed up by the inclusions on Roadfood.com, particularly those from states like Connecticut, where I spend a lot of time. In the coming months I'll be be making Roadfood pilgramages to New Orleans and Utah and am looking forward to chowing down.

I was in New Orleans once, in 1991, way before Roadfood dominated my travels. I remember going to a place on Bourbon (probably in the 200 or 300 block) which offered a shrimp creole/jambalaya/red beans and rice combo and I remember enjoying it. I couldn't even tell you the name of the place or if its still in business I wish I knew. Prices were relatively reasonable if I recall. I remember going to a pizza joint, I believe it was called Mama's on the fringes of the french quarter and had Gumbo which I also remember being very good. It was a relatively short trip. I went to Cafe Du Monde because my friend who went to Tulane University told me all about Beignets and Chickory Coffee.

As far as the Grove Diner in Warwick, they've changed names, possibly owners, it's now called Dinese's Diner. Don't know why I've never been there, perhaps I'll go today...

If I were to take out all my Roadfood books, my list would definetely grow. It would probably exceed 100. I believe I'm at 79 based on the current list.

My list, which I'm too lazy to type here, numbers 40. But, the majority are in and around NYC, with a healthy smattering around Western NY.

Just went to the Grove Diner for lunch, now known as Dinese's diner and revised my list accordingly. Had three loaded hot wieners and a side of onion rings. The onion rings were hot and fresh and were ok. Ever since I had onion rings on Ted's Red Hots in Buffalo, all other rings just don't compare. The hot wiener sauce was milder and meatier than most, it didn't have that pungent celery seed spice that most wiener sauces tend to have. Overall a fair experience. Apparently they have Fish n Chips and Chowder on Fridays. I'll have to go back on a friday to try it out. Today's special was the classic New England dish, American Chop Suey.

Just added Parker's to my list too. Apparently it was just reviewed today for the first time.

wanderingjew, I've seen you photo so I can ask, how come you don't weigh 850 pounds ? Even Michael Keaton would be pushing 350 with half your list.

Wanderingjew, what was disappointing about the Mug'n'Bun in Indy? I've never been there but I thought it looked good in the review here and the one on Hollyeats website. I was going to be driving through Indy next weekend and I had thought about stopping. I might re-think that now.

I'm 6'2" and 245 lbs. Isn't that bad enough??? Actually it's not too bad...My motto is moderation when you're at home and eat like a pig when you're on vacation or out of town!

It wasn't that it was dissappointing, the root beer was great, it's just that the tenderloin wasn't all that I thought it was cracked up to be. Maybe it's me. I'm going to give the tenderloin another chance later on this year in Iowa.

We have used the Stern's work and several other guides to help as we've wandered the country for the past 20+ years. Suffice it to say that we have a lengthy list. One place I miss that was in the first RoadFood Book is the Syringa Cafe on Rt 12 (in LoLo Pass) near Kooski Idaho. Lonely little place, but it was the ideal roadfood location as we climbed the Pass heading for Montana back in '84.
It's not the numbers that really count here...It's the memories!!

Oh yeah, In the same basic topic area. We visited ALL the WalMarts in North Dakota (8)in a 2-day circle of the State a few years back. Now there's a real claim to fame !!

Hatteras. Definitely go to Mug N Bun while passing thru Indy. Their root beer is very very good. Just have a little tenderloin, then head to Shapiros Deli downtown. I think their potato salad is outstanding.

Wow, what an interesting exercise this is. I just grabbed the closest copy of Roadfood, dating from 1992, and counted 95 of the listings that I've been to. Next exercise will be to find all the copies I have dating to the original and put them together in one place, and there's an updated version coming out soon.

After months of wracking my brain, using process of elimination, yahoo maps and yellow pages along with surfing the net for restaurant menus, I think I finally found the restaurant where I experienced the New Orleans combo back in 1991 and here it is!

The below is sad...I looked throughly through the restaurant listing and these are the only places I've been to on it:

Fralinger's - Atlantic City, NJ (not really a restaurant, but it's still listed in the restaurant section, so...I'm desperate here)
Mastori's - Bordentown, NJ
Geno's - Philly
Pat's - Philly
Jim's Steaks (yo! whatchoo want on yo' steak?) - Philly
Charcoal Pit (both the one in Bear & the one in Wilmington) - Delaware
The Crab Claw - St. Michaels, MD

It's not that I really have a lot of catching up to do (well, I do...), but that many roadfood-type places that I have been to aren't listed in the official restaurant listing. Unless they're in the Insider section, and I will definitely be joining that this year.

They're mentioned throughout the forums, though.

Haven't completed an update in over two years. Let's see where things are now.  120+ new places since my last update - and up over 400 now. I do go to a lot of duplicates, though. I have decided to reorganize by state, rather than alphabetically. I will edit in the newest additions in green and restaurants that I have previously visited but the review is new to either the latest book or web site will be listed in red and bold the favorites. indicates a place that is now closed. indicates one of the very few clunkers on my list.

In following the lead from stanpnepa, places that I have visited that are surely worthy of the Roadfood seal of approval, but have yet to earn, include the following:

** ate at another location -- not the one listed on roadfood.com

I'm not riding tall with the big boys in this thread, but I'll take pushing 300 or so...and counting. Seeing as how my screen name has become a verb, I want partial credits for all of the places that I TRIED to go to and were closed when I got there (i.e. Sears in SF, BBQ King in Charlotte, Mint Bar in Sheridan, WY, New Zion Missionary Baptist Church BBQ in Huntsville, TX - most recent one....and more!)

My favorite - after all a world of new eating is probably still either Katz's or Peter Luger. I know that they have their detractors, but I will still pick them over most any other choice, and will go out of my way to get there, if I am within 50-60 miles.

Also, I have a few places that I am not sure if they are listed in older editions of Roadfood, but they appear on other people's lists or I cannot figure out why I chose to go there (H&H Bagels in NYC, JG Melon's in NYC, Ray's Hell Burger in Arlington, VA, Chap's Pit Beef in Baltimore, Railhead BBQ in Fort Worth, etc.). If anyone can lay claim to these guys being in an older edition, please let me know.

chezkatie - Us folks out here in the wilderness are really hurt that you haven't been anywhere but to one place in the windy state of Wyoming. Come on out, and that goes for all you folks in the middle and eastern parts of this nation of ours. We really do have some great places to eat. I will personally escort (for a very large fee) you to some here in little old New Mexico, and our western neighbor of Arizona. Honest, no passports needed!!

I am not a marketing guy for the Sterns but if I were them, I would use this as a advertisng thing. It indicates the power this site has.

I personally have visited many sites discussed on this forum directly due to what I have read.

I'd like to go through and see where I've been. Is there a way to list all the restaurant on the site at one time? Any search I do gets limited to 300 restaurants. Don't have the patience to search 50 states one at a time. Has someone already compiled a list for us to share?

I am really impressed with the large listings of places visted that been posted. I also keep thinking the amount of gas that was used to visit all these sites. I bet the people that made these listings get HUGE Christmas presents from the oil companies. Ha Ha!!

Garry, I don't know about the others, but I assure you, my list was comprised using pretty modest means. I travel for work a lot, which allows me the opportunity to get to places that I would have a difficult time doing otherwise. For my personal travel, I have access to airline miles and hotel points that were accrued on my business travel, thereby making some of the journeys a lot easier. Beyond that, though, there isn't much. I make a very modest living, but I live within my means.

Someone commented in wanderingjew's recent trip log that they wished they would be able to do trips like this when they retire, leaving one to assume that it is not realistic to do this now. While I don't make much money, I do get a lot of time off from work (20 days vacation, plus sick time, plus major US holidays, PLUS the week between Christmas and New Year's, and the days before and after Thanksgiving). Frankly, it is more time off than I know what to do with. So, where some people will save for two years to have enough money to take their one or two week vacation to Hawaii -- I don't see the value in that. I would rather spend my time doing the things that I like more frequently, even if they are not as exotic. Different strokes for different folks, I suppose.

Money to the oil companies, so far, is the least of my worries - for me, it is making sure that I have a steady stream of airline miles and hotel points!

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

I never thought to compile a list until pork tenderloin sandwiches recently. I get around both vacation and in my job. 16 states already this year driving a camper van some 7,000 miles on two major trips. I have probably forgotten more places than I remember. I think in the past 15 years I have been in every state except Hawaii. Of course I ate in quite a few of them. I have the Stern's RoadFood book. I should mark what I can remember. And yes I have been to the Mug'n'Bun numerous times over a 40+ year span but I have yet to include them in a recent pork tenderloin sandwich tour. Wanderingjew is probably right about the pork tenderloin sandwich there considering what I now know about most of the other Indiana tenderloins. I will know for sure next year.

I feel that I have been fortunate to have lived in cities or areas where restaurants make the list. San Francisco to the L.A. area, Nawlins to N.Y and at the moment, Connecticut. My wife was from Memphis and took me on a Que tour there. So reading the lists mentioned by all of you gives me a reason to say "Me too!" Last week was Hot Dog Johnny's (N.J.) and yesterday I found Blackies in nearby Cheshire. Where I live now seems to be a good place for many Roadfood joints. Many of these I plan to check out as I am new to this site. Hot dog joints, pizza, diners, fish houses and more dominate.

I plan on getting the current edition of the Roadfood Guide, but I have been hinting that I hope to get it for a birthday present. However I have another idea recently that has come to me, dining via GPS..! My little dashboard device has the ability to list and direct me to many places to go to eat within about a 25 mile radius. It lists many types of restaurants and with no surprise, Roadfood recommended destinations.
What I found interesting among the selections was the section listing BBQ!! I did not know that there were so many places that have BBQ menus, and to be honest I am kind of leary of their ability to do it right. But one needs to be adventurous and try something new.

I think that GPS dining is a different idea worth trying as even here, there are many places waiting to be discovered and have yet to be reviewed. I will search for certain types of restaurants within Connecticut and other states, only to discover that there is no listing for what I am looking for.
Maybe Thai is not considered Roadfood, but I am surprised to find that there are no listings for pizza in California!!!
One question. Has anyone used the Microsoft Streets & Trips (2004/2005) package listed on the homepage? Some reviews at Amazon seem to be less than enthusiastic. Is there another CD-ROM that is worth checking out?

I lived in Seattle for over 3 years. I would certainly consider Thai "roadfood" out in the Pacific Northwest. On the other hand, Pizza in Califrornia??????? no.............

As a former resident from the Bay Area and California in general, I find it odd that there are a total of about three to four restaurant listings for the categories of Asian, Chinese and Japanese for the WHOLE state. That's not right.
There is not a category for Thai for any state. I agree that there should be some listings. Where I came from, there was a good restaurant of these types on every block and you could have thrown in Mexican and Italian too. You did not need a Roadfood guide, just a good nose...

I will not argue about pizza, as I live close enough to New Haven and agree that east coast style rules. Heck, years ago, I brought a pizza on board a plane as carry-on because I knew that there there was no substitute. It was an aromatic flight....

My point about dining by GPS is that it does list many restaurants within my radius. It does not have as many categories, but last night I passed Ted's Steamed hamburgers and Blackie's on my destination to the Thai restaurant where I had my stomach set on the Crispy Duck in curried coconut milk. I made up for passing those places by stopping at Denmo's for a chili-burger and chocolate malt. That little machine lists all those places and the mileage and when to turn. It lists places that have yet to be reviewed here.
Fortunately it does not count calories...

Mark,

The problem with your statement is that it doesn't take into account where the bulk of the reviews come from. The people who own this site make their living selling books promoting local regionalized (and predominantly American) restaurants. Yes, there are user-submitted reviews, but all reviews need to go through a submission process and meet certain guidelines. Could Thai be considered a regional food - perhaps in some places, but other than volume and availability is there anything particularly regional about Thai, Chinese, sushi or most other ethnic foods? Is there something that makes Thai in Seattle different or unique from Thai in Birmingham, AL?

Stevekoe has a new name!!!!

I think that certain areas of the country "hit the nail on the head" when it comes to good quality ethnic cuisine. Perfect example would be your (and my) preference for Chinese food on Long Island. How about the Cuban food down in Miami and Tampa? I wonder if they can duplicate the quality in Salt Lake City. Seattle has a significant Asian population and a multitude of multi ethnic Asian Cuisine. I've had Thai food in NY, Pittsburgh and Providence, although here in Providence for reasons I'm still trying to ascertain these eateries will also serve Chinese and Vietnamese food as well. I've yet to find a restaurant that can duplicate my Thai Restaurant eating experiences I had while living in Seattle. I just noticed a new Thai Restaurant is opening near me here in East Greenwich, it's actually walking distance from my condo and I'll actually be walking right by it this evening. I look forward to trying it but wonder if it's going to miss that "Je Ne Sais Quoi".

Look at the explosion of Mexican/Latin American restaurants and foodstands all across the country. With the influx of Migrants..legal and not, The number of places to find that type of food has expanded with them. As with all Mom and Pops, some are wonderful and some 'aren't'. I would have a hard time trying all the taco stores in southern Indiana, much less around the Louisville area. AND This area is not any different in population shift than many urban areas in the South/MidWest.

The Hispanic population has boomed in Knoxville but somehow the food stands have not. To my knowledge, there are no specific taco stands around K town. I sort of wish there was.

Wow, these are some impressive lists. Mine is not so long, but we did hit a couple of them recently on a vacation trip to Montreal (via the Jersey turnpike and the NY State Thruway). It was great to search on this site for some possible places enroute, and both we tried turned out very well:

- Stash - Polish restaurant in Montreal - terrific, and 1/2 block from our hotel
- Mastoris Diner in Bordentown, NJ - hands down, the best diner EVER

and a couple that are local to us:

- The Charcoal Pit in Bear, DE - an old fashioned hamburger joint with great ice cream treats and honest to God jukebox station at every table.
- Pat's Steaks and Jim's Steaks in Philly. Pat's was downright dreadful - there's a thousand corner joints that make a better cheesesteak than that. They are coasting along on name recognition alone. Jim's was pretty good, though (but a terrible bum's rush through the line - you'd better know what you want or they are pretty impatient about explaining the choices.)

Good list. Interesting that there's only one entry from New Orleans. Must have been a very short trip. I think you can start to amend the list by going to the joint near your job that you mentioned never having gone to in another thread. Must be a story behind why you haven't been there.

I sat down awhile ago with all my different editions of Roadfood going back to the earliest editions and started counting places. Factoring in the website reviews, my total is over 300, a number which has been significantly beefed up by the inclusions on Roadfood.com, particularly those from states like Connecticut, where I spend a lot of time. In the coming months I'll be be making Roadfood pilgramages to New Orleans and Utah and am looking forward to chowing down.


After months of wracking my brain, using process of elimination, yahoo maps and yellow pages along with surfing the net for restaurant menus, I think I finally found the restaurant where I experienced the New Orleans combo back in 1991 and here it is!
