" 'Twas the Night Before RoadFood. " -- A Tale of Good Eating and Cheer.

" 'Twas the Night Before RoadFood."
 
‘Twas the night before RoadFood, and everything was grand,
Barbecue pits were smoking, all across the Southland.
Sausages were hung by the fire, at Kreuz Market with care,
In hopes that Smitty’s customers would wander over there.
 
The RoadFooders were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Allie’s honey-dipped donuts danced in their heads.
And Mama at her Du-Par’s, and I at my Pann’s,
Had settled on the fact that we are both fans.
 
When out on a picnic bench, there was such a clatter,
The ghost of Pete Jones brought out a barbecue platter.
No register at the counter, just a small mound of cash,
Tore into our eastern NC ‘cue, we were finished in a flash.
 
The new-fallen snow reflected the light of a neon glow,
From the best Mexican we’ve had, at El Indio.
When, what to my RoadFooding eyes should appear,
But Roast Grill chili dogs, and a frosty root beer.
 
With roast pork and sharp provolone, never too quick,
I knew in a moment, it must be DiNic’s.
More cheese, Hatch chiles, it’s Bobcat Bite!
He whistled, he shouted, give me a Maid Rite! 

Now, Louie Mueller’s!  Now, Frank Pepe’s!  Now, Al’s #1 Beef, and Flo’s!
On Ted’s! On Joensy’s! On Lenny & Joe’s!
Sippin’ sweet tea on the porch, and enjoying it all!
Now feast away, feast away, feast away all!
 
- Glenn

    Very nicely done Glenn!  Thanks so much!  I particularly liked the Bobcat Bite line.

    When it comes to Roadfood, no matter how much you've eaten there's always room for Moore...

    Thanks all.   It was fun thinking up ones that rhyme to put in there. 
     
    On the lines with Pete Jones, he was the owner of the Skylight Inn in Ayden, NC  before he passed away.  Janet and I were always amazed that he kept the restaurant money in a pile on the counter.   So, we had to include a line or two about 'ol Pete and his cash pile.

    As far as I know, they still do that with the money at Skylight Inn.  Talk about a blast from the past!
