I have been disappointed the last couple of times that I have been to the Buffet on Eastwood Trafficway. The last time I was in I asked about the owners and the employee said that they were spending all of their time down at their Power & Light location. Another stop to possibly add would be Porubsky's in Topeka for Chili and Horseradish Pickles.

....I would like to see folks come to the west coast and a day spent at Ecola Seafood, Norma's, and Waves of Grain Bakery in Seaside-Cannon Beach would be a scenic delight with a final stop for pie at Camp 18 would provide a unique experience. Portland has a wide variety of places as well, ranging from ethnic Mexican and Ethiopian to sandwich shops run by first-rate chefs to maybe the best in country coffee-bakery combos. Also a vibrant food-cart scene. Portland is a great unknown food city but I know I would welcome the nation here and would be great to have so many roadfooders here.

So many good choices all over the country, but I am changing my vote to Portland, followed closely by Santa Fe.  The west coast has not yet been represented in a RoadFood tour and both of these options sound great. 
 
My first RoadFood Get-Together was Buffalo-Rochester in 2009.  It was a lot of fun and I look forward to attending in 2010, wherever it is!

May I selfishly suggest Columbus, OH as a destination, if not now then maybe in the future. Fall weather, Buckeye football games, Gahanna Grill, Johnnies, Jeni's Ice Cream, Nancy's Home Cooking, Spuds, Thurman's, Schmidt's and the list goes on... Plus it's a fairly central location.

Another city to consider -- Omaha, NE.  Johnny's Cafe,  Runza Hut (my favorite), King Fong Cafe (as much for the atmosphere as for the food), B & G Tasty Foods,  Joe Tess' Place,  Bohemian Cafe, The Pink Poodle (actually right across the river in Iowa) -- Omaha has many great food options.

The most exciting thing to do in Omaha is watch the signs on the insurance company buildings come on at dusk!

Prior to the slowdown, Gilbert AZ was the fastest,  most well planned & managed growing city in the USA- 5 years running. Great quality of life here. And we have the NBA Suns, NHL Coyotes, MLB Diamondbacks & NFL Cardinals within 30-45 minutes of my house. OH, and there's good Roadfood places to eat as well.. And did I happen to mention it's one of the most beautiful States in the USA-- not flat as a pancake like NB!

I lived in Scottsdale for 4 years, FBM. I never felt so dead while still alive. Soul sucked right out of me.

Sounds like a "You Problem"!
What years were you here and when was the last time you were here. MUCH has changed since I've been in the Valley (since 2000). Prior, I've been traveling out here since 1972!

Wow! Flashback to my Long Island relatives' reactions when I told them I had moved to Omaha.
 
Excitement?  That is an individual call, and not what this about, anyway - e.g., Buffalo and Rochester - except maybe for the natural wonders of Niagara Falls and the Great Lakes -aren't hubs of excitement either.  But what Omaha and these cities do offer is some wonderful and unique Roadfood.
 
So, just another consideration thrown into the pot.  Heck, I would enjoy revisiting old favorites in Omaha, but I also look forward to trying new Roadfood options in cities I haven't been to.

Everything you  stated as positive about Gilbert, and the whole Valley, I see as a negative.
Planned growing communities do not necessarily produce the best cultural experience.
Or food. Wonder why the Sterns seem to prefer old school Tucson to new Razzle Dazzle Phoenix?
Depth.

Depth.

Are you sure you can Speak to what the Sterns are thinking? I'd rather hear it from them IF in case that's what they're thinking! I too have noticed that the Sterns have done more write ups on Tucson than Phoenix. Curious minds are anxious to hear FROM THEM why that is! Many others have done more write ups on Phoenix, than Tucson so I think if you added it all up, there are more entries for Phoenix than Tucson.
DEPTH???? There is 10 times more depth in Roadfood establishments in the Valley of the Sun.
As far as the DEPTH of Roadfood in Tucson is concerned, when you get past Sonoran Hot Dog places and other Mexican Places, there's not much beyond that. There are some Sonoran Hot Dog places in the Phoenix area and many more Mexican food places than Tucson. In addition there is a much larger variety of non-Mexican Roadfood places in the PHX area. Your dislike and perception of your experience here seems to be clouding your thnking.

  FBM, it wasn't my intent to get into an argument or derail this thread.   
The depth is my perception.  I lived there in 1985-89.
Love Arizona/Mex food. 
Love the desert and high country, not in any hurry to get back to the Valley of the Sun.
Tucson, along with several of the outlying towns, in my opinion, retain more of some original Arizona dining traditions than the new-age nature of Phoenix. 
I like areas that have an evolving  history pre WW2.
just my preference.
Deal?

As a past participant and a few unofficial trips under my belt, I've always wanted to combine Santa Fe and [size=3 font="times new roman"]Albuquerque into a trip.
 
I beleive the 2 day with bus - similar to Rochester and Buffalo - works best.  It allows for lots of time together and lots more interaction.
 
My vote - Two days, with bus, Santa Fe and Albuquerque.

I am not suggesting Cincinnati as a destination for a bus tour deal

However

When you and Jane are next in Cincinnati, please check out the following

a) Tucker's (Vine Street, Over the Rhine) for breakfast
b) Sugar N Spice (Reading Road - Bond Hill area) for breakfast
c) Terry's Turf Club (East End) for burgers

I lived in Phoenix from 1980-1988.  I will admit that by the time I left, I had grown very weary of chips and salsa.  Also, I related to a bumper sticker sold there - "I am not afraid of Hell, I live in Phoenix".

I agree with ChiTownDiner that the two day format works best.

The two day format last fall in Buffalo-Rochester was a vast improvement over the single day two busloads of nashville. more time to meet others, more time to digest food, more chances to visit more places. Still hope Portland gets love as i think this is a great food city.

I Just loved Baltimore on a day trip visit last fall!   The Lexington Market on a Saturday Morning was out of this world.  The Faidley's crabcakes, The Berger Cookies and the vibe of the market, what a great way to start the day!  On to the beautiful harbor for some views and drinks.  We were so close to Little Italy but had a plan for a sit down dinner at G&M beore we flew home that DAY, so next time.  What great food and people.

Hoo boy.  All great choices.  Nothing can possibly top New Orleans and the Road Food Festival, but I'm also sure we couldn't go wrong with any of these 4.

Sorry to see Kansas City no longer in the running because I would love to meet everyone attending. BUT....if I had to chose between Kansas City and Sante Fe, Sante Fe / Albuquerque would get my vote!

Has a timeframe for the location announcement and dates been established?  Looking to make some September - October travel plans and I would like to incorporate this trip into the mix.

Same here. I usually make my late summer NC roadtrip right after the Labor Day weekend, but if the RF event is going to be in my preferred location of Santa Fe or someplace else that's close enough to home for me ( that leaves out Portland ), I'll need to combine the two trips into one in order for me to attend.

If the weekend after Labor Day I am busy hosting another event, a Class B RV rally in Grand Marais, MN which interestingly enough would be a great trip for roadfooders as well. I've been enticing the RVers with this photo gallery.

Minnesota North Shore Foods and Scenery

...and my Roadfood.com report...

I vote for Santa Fe and environs, because:
A) the fall will be perfect for chile season.

B) the Bobcat Bite is great if you're there for the meat, but the GCC's are way better at the Parasol in Espanola and I want to hear other reviews of this.

C) there simply isn't enough information on this board about destinations in this area - it's always the BCB, etc.  I spend a lot of time in this area and would like to see more! (and maybe I should just break down and write more)

One of the trips I've wanted to do for some time now is take the Amtrak "Southwest Chief" line to Albuquerque, stay there or Santa Fe for a week, then continue on the line to Flagstaff and hang in the Sedona area for another week.

*Sigh* Don't think I can manage a trip such as this any time this year. Ditto any of the trips suggested in this thread.

Afraid I'm going to have to change my vote from Santa Fe to Memphis. A review of my, umm... "fiscal situation" has convinced me that New Mexico isn't really an option this year. Probably just as well, as I still haven't been to Charlie Vergos Rendezvous or Interstate BBQ.

Albuquerque has some interesting eating places - couple that with Santa Fe.  Also Western Carolina/Asheville.

Portland.  Time to come west.  Best time during the early or late summer.  Don't worry about the weather.

I vote for Charleston hands down. Some of the best food on the planet. I vote a strong 2nd choice for Memphis. Either way you can't lose...

I forgot to add make it after the hot/humid summer. Late September on would be OK both CHS or MEM, October being ideal.

Why not Cleveland?  Been there many times and they have some GREAT places.  Great neighborhood places, great diners, great fish frys and their neighborhoods are so unique.  The Flats stands out as a great place to hang and get good food.

Does anyone know when a decision is going to be made?

Trudy and I are still hoping Portland and the Oregon coast will be the choice. Some of Western Oregon's best weather is that time of year.,

We are exploring two options.  One is out west, and another is down south.  We are still figuring out logistics, but hope to have a decision in a week or two.

I'm with the Sundancer: since I'm limited to locations within a day's drive of my home and at reasonably low altitudes, I'd go for the southeastern quadrant of the US. The Mississippi Delta would be interesting, but anywhere in that quadrant would suit me just fine!

The Charleston/Lowcountry excursion should extend north to Georgetown(River Room, Rice Paddy, others), Pawley's Island(Louis') and Murrell's Inlet.(Oliver's Lodge, Lee's Inlet Kitchen, Nance's, Flo's, just about any other place along the main drag)

Portland!!!  It would be just the excuse I need to make the drive down and check up on my daughter who just moved there and is trying to cut the apron strings!!  lol

While you're there, make a short drive east on 84 and check out Multnomah Falls, and then head a little bit further east to Cascade Locks and visit the East Wind Drive-in.

Awesome 70 year old drive-in with good food.  Not hand-pattied burgers, but still very good. Great fries and milkshakes.  Now I want a soft-serve swirl cone!!
