desertdog, I can be contacted by first clicking Contact Roadfood.com, then ticking Restaurant & Review Editor and entering your message in the Feedback box. Be sure to enter your email address in the E-Mail (Optional) box if you want me to be able to respond. And click Submit Feedback.

A note to those interested in submitting reviews: be sure to click Update periodically while typing your review - if you wait too long on the review page before clicking Update, everything will be lost when you submit it. For the same reason, if you've been sitting on the writeup page a long time before beginning your review, back out and then re-enter before writing the review. This will prevent disappointments.

Finally, one of the features of Roadfood.com that people love is the quality reviews that can be found here. So please understand that, unlike many other restaurant/food themed websites, we don't post everything that's submitted. Only the most thorough, interesting, well-written and useful submissions make the cut. We are unlikely to post the kind of brief, two-sentence comments you see on other websites. This is not meant to discourage anyone - it's just an explanation. I try to respond to every review submitted to Roadfood.com, and if the review was not accepted for posting, I'll detail the reasons why.


thanks!

Sorry to dredge this old dog up, but I thought of another idea...a profile page that we could edit ourselves...including an avatar, a short bio, a list of our fave foods, or restaurants, a link to our websites or blog or for the restauranteurs, a link to their restaurants...

L.A< for example---I have visions of Langer's for breakfast, Original Tommy's for lunch, snacks at the Hong Kong Bakery and dinner at El Tepayac. I think as long as it's a few hundred miles or less, roadfoodies would fill the bus easily.

As long as we've brought this topic back, something else has occurred to me. How about a search feature that sorts Roadfood members by state and city. There have been many times when I've wanted to target folks for a private email in a specific geographic area inviting them for a meet up when I am traveling to their stomping grounds.

Buddy, I'd be willing to compile a list of members residing between Chicago and Milwaukee in alphabetical order according to height.

Is that height standing up or lying down?

How about a "foreign" section for non- American roadfoods? I don't even see Canada or Mexico here.

FINALLY I'm working on feedback for your bash. I started a new job that entailed learning and training, so my web time has been cramped severely.

Maybe a "flag this topic" or "flag this post" option near the edit, etc icons.

It would be a quick way to notify moderators of spam or personal attacks.

Not be a fink or anything, but you know...

I love Big Ugly Mich's suggestion that there be sections for Canada and Mexico...especially Canada.

I would like to be able to go to a posters profile and see if they own a place, what kind, are they a Chef, Sous Chef, lead cook, or a home cook. Should be able to add an avatar or cerate your own!
Thanks

It seems the Regional Forum is a catchall that has just "where should I eat". You would think before adding Canada and Mexico you would make the USA a tad more broken up by regions. As it is now there is nothing to prevent someone starting a topic there, "Going to Toronto - Need Recs" is there?

I finally found out where the Sterns will be next time when they make the trip to Ann Arbor MI...(Clements library)
Here are some suggestions for roadfood Mr and Mrs Stern...:)

1. Fleetwood Diner-a real diner open 24 hours
2. Krazy Jim's Blimpy Burger
3. Red Hot Lovers

I look forward to the lecture!

Stephen

Maybe on section on the home page to list upcoming appearances by the Sterns.

I know sometimes there is a thread about an upcoming visit or appearance, but if you don't read all the threads you might miss an opportunity to see them.

I would like to see a function that allows one to login after posting a reply, as opposed to losing a reply because of forgetting to login!

Thanks for posting those Roadfood tips! My uncle from Port Huron will attend the symposium and I suggested he eat at one of the above.

ROADFOOD MAGAZINE: Available at all check-out counters

ROADFOOD The Movie: An All-Star cast crossing America in search of the perfect meal. I see this film as a cross between MY DINNER WITH ANDRE and DEATH RACE 2000.

Roadfood TV: Move over Food network.....

Poadfood Restaurants: Real good food that cares about the old ways. Next turn off on the right. Move over Cracker Barrel.

I am thinking of the original Duncan Hines and how he traveled the country giving his approval to restaurants on the way. The cake mixes came later and they were just marketing. I guess that it can be done commercially with a line of mixes of all the pies and cakes that we have heard about but do not see due to regional distictions and differences.
With this in mind, there could be a whole line of Roadfood approved or themed items. A ROADFOOD BBQ grill strikes me as one idea... Go ahead, SELL OUT.

On a more serious note, there could be a Roadfood seal of approval for restaurants that have rated highly on this site. I have run across some places that were unaware that they were even mentioned here. It is a win-win situation as the restaurant has a 'laurel' to place on the wall and we have more people who become aware of what this site has to offer. The Stern's can sell more books.

I suggest they drive another hour west to Grand Rapids, then go north to Rosies Diner (14 Mile Rd, just east of US-131).. Since this young couple took over, I've heard nothing but good things about them.. (Everything made from scratch)..

I have noticed how popular the thread titled "Roadfood Places I have Visited" seems to be on this site. Perhaps the Sterns should market a "Passport" or a "Frequent Eater" program that one would get stamped or certified when they ate at one of the 'official' Roadfood Locations.Perhaps Receipts for meals at the place would do for 'proof of purchase'! After xx number of locations visited the person would be eligible for various 'bonus awards' (hats, books etc etc).

Along the same line, How about a monthly feature story about members here on the site. "Roadfooder of the Month" with a few photos, and a biography to help us get to know each other a bit better.

Mayor...would there be a centerfold???

Wouldn't a Roadfood chain be an oxymoron?
