That's what i get for having a job that allowed me to travel, there were still hundreds more I would love to visit and hundreds more that should be on there but weren't listed with roadfood.
also a lot of those came becuase I lived in the area at that time.
Boston, Rochester, Chicago, Atlanta, Louisiana, and Cincy, were good starting points for my adventures.

My travels have slowed down, so I am only hitting the rust belt and south east, now.

I need to win the lottery so I can travel full time!!

I'm disappointed in the number of entries (or lack of) from Arizona. We have some fantastic local places here that rival anything anywhere else. Maybe I'll have to start my own Arizona Road Food list...sounds like a noble pursuit, eh?

Desert,
If you're going to do that, could you please rattle off your top 10 hot dog places?

Hey Bear,

In Phoenix, there is only one place to get a proper Hot Dog, and that would be TED'S.

WanderingJew, I'm thinking that you're not checking this thread any more, but I'll take a shot.

On you orig list, you gave Rein's Deli in Vernon/Rockville, CT a couple of ??.

Do you recall why?

I'm asking because my inlaws live about 5 miles from the shop. Their takeout is very high quality, as long as you're not in a hurry (or if you call ahead).

Years ago, I ate in the restaurant (prob the first one that burned down), and thought the service was slow, and when we take a family road trip, Reins is the most convenient place to stop for breakfast. Every time we (meaning I) go there, I have to wait about 20-30 minutes for our order, and we're not picky - typically, it's 2 bacon egg and cheese sams, and 2 bagels with cream cheese, nothing difficult.

Actually, you're wrong, I am checking it out.
I found Reins horribly dissappointing, compared to the Deli's in the NYC area, it's been a long time- 7 years, but I recall everything to be very bland.
Besides, Central Connecticut is not the place for Kosher Deli's anyway. I'm a strict regionalist. A better option a couple of miles away is Tasty Chick, try the Chicken Pies- They're homemade!- Now that's a TRUE GEN-U-WINE Central Connecticut regional specialty.

Mr Chips, did you just update your list in an old post? I believe that is what happened when I clicked on the last message mini icon and got your list. If so, to all maintaining lists please bold orred to highlight your new additions and of course remove the highlight from previous updates. That would help us readers a lot.

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

Restaurants in Red are those that have been recently updated since my original post either because I have subsequently visited them or because they have subsequently been added to Roadfood.

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 2/14
denotes that to the best of my knowledge that the Restaurant is currently out of business


Thanks for the updated list. That was a lot of work to update, but a good indexing scheme nonetheless. Sorry to see that Ulgesich's and Second Ave Deli are out of business.

I'm eventually going to add the year that I last visited these places.
My memory is pretty sharp (and so are my notes!)

I'll be adding at least 3 more restaurants after the Austin Trip

Cajunking also has quite an impressive list. I am envious of folks like this. I thought with my list I was pretty well traveled, but nothing compared to WJ, Cajunking, and Mr Chips.

I liked WJ's idea so I have decided to post the date of my last visit to the restaurants that have been mentioned in the books or on the website. There are 3 or 4 places where I ate where I just can't recall the name of the place in Colorado,Louisiana and California.

Your list definetely puts mine to shame.

You might want to double check on the Bocce Club, although I haven't been there in years, I'm pretty certain they're still around.

Thanks and I am definitely jealous of the many places you have been to that I haven't. Especially the places that are now closed.

I was on a plane from Providence to Pittsburgh last Fall and I sat next to a real nice young guy from Woonsocket. I asked about the Bocce Club and he is the one who told me it was closed. Of course, he could very easily be wrong. I hate to hear about Roadfood places closing so I am hoping you are correct. I will try calling in the next few days.

I'm sure there are people out there who have been to even more Roadfood places than WJ and I. They just might not necessarily post here.

When I ate at Nye's Polonaise Room in Minneapolis in 2000, my waitress noticed my Eat Your Way Across the USA book. She said a retired couple had stopped in the week before on a cross country drive to California. She looked at their book and they had been just about everywhere. When she asked where I was from I said Pittsburgh. She said, "That's where these folks were from. Don't you people in Pittsburgh have anything better to do?" Apparently not!

The owner of Bocce Club just returned my call and they are still open. This is definitely good news. That is what I get for listening to someone on a plane!

By the way, he had a very thick Italian accent, which has to be a good sign.

Buffetbuster,

I knew the Bocce Club still had to be open since I still see advertising in the Providence Phoenix for the lounge acts that perform there on the weekends.
A year or two ago, something similar happenned to me, I was talking to an attorney from Atlanta and I mentioned I had been to Mary Mac's Tea Room, he told me that they had recently closed that the owner decided to retire. I went onto their website- and it was still active- I called and confirmd that they were still open and in business.

Paul, I have 199 restaurants listed, a technicality can either bring it down to 198 or up to 200. You see I've been to Emmett Watsons in Seattle but did not eat there- I just imbibed in beer. recently I noticed a listing for Fatheads in Pittsburgh was also added, I've been there too but never ate there- again I just had a few beers there, I didn't add it to my list and I'm not sure if I should. I'm thinking if hadn't eaten there then I really shouldn't include it so I think I'm going to delete Emmett Watson's from my list.

That is too bad that all you got try at Food Life was the Lemonade. This place is a favorite of mine, even though it can be expensive. I usually get a bowl of soup, a side Caeser Salad, a Thai entree and Bananas Foster for dessert, plus a fruit smoothie to drink. Not too many places you can do all that at!

I went to the booth at round-up. He still caters around town(my wife Trudy has family in Pendleton and they speak highly of him). He does not have a restaurant at this time. The sandwiches at his booth at round-up grounds are an annual highlight.

Thanks for the reply. I was hoping Mario would have his own place by now. This has to be one of the more difficult Roadfood places to hit. Looks like I am going to attend the Pendleton Round-Up one of these years.

Wanderingjew 218
Carjunking 205

Mr Chips 129

Buffetbuster has probably been to more roadfood restaurants than I have been to total restaurants. 619 equals eating at a different place every day for almost 2 years.

I can't believe you actually did all that counting!

I am almost positive that there are others out there who have been to more Roadfood places than me. After the conversation I had with Bruces Bilmes in Nashville, I believe he is one of them. Bruce, I would love to see your list someday, if you can find the time.

wanderingjew-
I do understand why you might not want to include places that you yourself submitted the reviews. But considering your reputation and high standards, I'm fairly certain that whatever place you review must be Roadfood worthy. I think you should count it.

It took all of less than a minute. I just highlighted and copy/pasted your listings into Microsoft Excel, and it rendered a figure for me. Would I have done it otherwise? Hell no! I only wish I had the lifestyle that affords you to visit all these establishments. You and Wanderingjew should collaborate on a restaurant blog, it would be very interesting reading.

Roadfood places are looked at w/ the same regard as any other place. I've had horrible meals at highly recommended places and gone two miles away for a great meal. And I am talking about tiny towns in east TN. I read the recommendations but temper them w/ the fact the review may be five plus years old, the owners have changed (IE Coffee Cup min Charlotte which is now double the price of the Waffle House and half the quality).

The Stern's review of the Coffee Cup is not 5 years old, the review is probably a little more than 6 months old. They re-reviewed it after the new ownership.

I'll be stopping in Charlotte early next year to visit some old friends. I may not have a whole lot of time there but I know I'll be stopping at the Coffee Cup and will see for myself.

Not that ANYONE will ever catch BuffetBuster, but my total is now up to 187. I keep an Excel of these things mostly for my amusement, and add five to fifteen per year. This list includes any place in a review entry on this site or listed in one of the Stern's food books (Eat Your Way, Roadfood, etc.).

That is some fine eating you have done. I would like to see you update your list when you get the chance. I am a little envious that you made it to places like Eddie's, Sri Lanka Curry House and Miss Hulling's Cafeteria that are now closed that I didn't make it to. Was the food as hot at Sri Lanka as I read and heard?

O.K. here they are, 623 and counting. The first 235 are from my old version of the Roadfood book. The next 369 are newer ones from the Restaurants tab above. The last few are from Roadfood books I do not own.
 
This compares with the 362 from my older travel food book called "The Best Places to Eat in America." I know I'm getting nutty; checking off places in the two books is starting to be more important to me than the food itself.

RE: These are the places I visited on Roadfood 2007/05/16 21:42:23
Buffetbuster, an updated list is now on Page 1. I hope to add a few more as early as next week! I'm in the process of compiling other great non-Roadfood listed meals, so maybe I'll post those somewhere or other down the line.

The gumbo at Eddie's remains the best bowl of soup I've ever had. (Got to get back to New Orleans soon. It may be the best food city in the country!).

The food was fiery but very tasty at Sri Lankan Curry House. The waitress warned my friend (who likes things spicier than me) to go with a medium hot. He did and went through four pitchers of water!!!

Miss Hulling's was a great cafeteria with comfort food and desserts that would just make you smile!

Thanks for the updated list. I genuinely really enjoy looking at other peoples lists and am always curious about places I haven't been to. Where are you headed next week where you hope to add more places?

We're doing a one day trip to Northern CT and Southern MA. I'm hoping to hit Dottie's Diner @ Phillips for a bit of breakfast and lunch (donuts and chicken pie), Blackie's (hot dogs for dinner) and Big Dipper (ice cream for dessert).

BB -

I just started reading this thread. I thought that counting the number of places you have visited was hard enough. You want to see lists!!

I guess I will have to create one to post here. I started counting yesterday and got up to 57 and I had not gotten any further west than VA. I will start my list and post it as soon as I have the time.

It sounds like you are going to have quite a list. I can't wait to see it.

stanpnepa-
Sounds like you will be doing some really good eating next week. I'm excited about my weekend which will include return visits to old favorites in Ohio like Bun's, G & R Tavern and Swenson's.

That's a pretty arrogant comment...
This is how I've kept a tally of roadfood places that I've visited. I think most of us who have responded to this particular thread have presented quite a few reviews via trip reports.

RE: These are the places I visited on Roadfood 2007/07/18 09:31:21
I've never kept lists but I have photographed pork tenderloin sandwiches and walleye sandwiches in the past couple of years so could count up those places. I know I am over 50 in pork tenderloins photographed alone and have about a half dozen where I never got a picture.

The question. Do you only count those in a Stern's book or review here or do you count all places you consider roadfoad?

Davydd,

I count all the restaurants that have been reviewed here as well as the restaurants from the Roadfood books. The only ones I don't include are the restaurants posted for the first time on Roadfood as a result of a review that I completed (so far there are only 2)

BTW, thanks for the info on the Lake Superior Circle tour

Davydd-
All the places on my list have appeared in one of Jane & Michael's restaurant guide books or reviewed here on Roadfood. There are a few in which I ate, like Breakfast Club in Dayton, in which the review has been archived for one reason or another.

If you ever did decide to make up a list of all the places you have sampled the pork tenderloin, I'm sure many of us here, including me, would love to see it.

WJ,

I think you should include your 2 as well. As one of the premier posters on this forum, I've followed some of your suggestions (most recently Ichiban in PB) and have to say you know what you are writing about. I trust your judgment.
