mar52 - Don't just sit at home weeping and bemoaning your fate. Do like I'm gonna do. Empty out the savings account, throw some suitcases in the car, and hit the road with a copy of Roadfood! Life is for living ( and stomachs are for stuffing. )                Bob

mr chips - that is a very impressive list of RF places. I wish mine was at least half that long ( 55 so far... phooey! ) I noticed that the Ridgewood in Bluff City isn't on your TN list; if you ever get back to the Volunteer State, you've gotta hit the Ridgewood. I've eaten there eight or nine times, and I always come away with a big grin. If they serve Q in Heaven, it's theirs.

When I get back to Tennessee, i will try to hit the Ridgewood. This year we will try to hit a lot of roadfood places in Oregon and Washington and add some reviews of places along the I-5 corridor.

I just populated a Google map with many of my highlights ... Still a work in progress.

Some non-RF place, but it is a list of where I eat.

LINK ... it is easier to navigate by using the link at the bottom of the map.

I'm thinking of adding a class of RF places I have been to, but don't endorse ... maybe I can find a black marker.

Over time I'll migrate my WGE comments and pictures to each restaurant.

I thought I would enter a separate listing for the Roadfood establishments included in the Stern's new "500 Things To Eat Before It's Too Late" book.

These are Roadfood restaurants that I previously visited but were either not reviewed on the forum or not in any previous Sterns book...

wanderingjew, not that it matters a whit... but I just thought you'd want to know... Johanna's Kitchen was actually recommended by the Sterns on 11/5/96 - not in a book, but in a series of web articles they used to do called Wish You Were Here.  I believe it was for Epicurious.  They would do "postcards" each week from various Roadfood places around the country.  Did it for years, so there were probably hundreds of them.  I don't think they are still available online though (I'm not certain of that).

Texas Chili Parlor showed up in a list of top ten chilis that the Sterns did for Epicurious online.  They did a series of top 10 lists (and they may still be doing them, I don't know) and I think you can still find them on the Epicurious website.

Faidley's was never given its own entry but it was discussed as part of the entry for the Lexington Market in the 1992 Roadfood.

And the O&H was recommended in a Stern book: A Taste of America.  This book compiled the syndicated columns the Sterns used to do where they discussed a Roadfood restaurant and accompanied the story with a recipe.  I don't know if it's still in print but you should be able to score a used copy.  It's a wonderful book!

This feels like pointing out that, yes, the Dead DID actually perform an extended version of That's Alright, Mama at the late concert in Elk City, OK on 8/17/73, during the 2nd encore - I have a tape of it off the board, if you wanna trade, dude.  But there you are!

Bruce,

Thanks for the input. since the O & H Bakery appeared in a different book that I don't have (but I now want to get)- I'll remove it from this list and add it to the other list. Since the other Roadfood haunts didn't have an entry on either this website or the other books they'll stay

While I find most of the forum software upgrades to be winners, one of the things that I do miss is when threads were revived when edited for content.  I don't miss the people who used to abuse the same technology - but, this thread is one, particularly, that stands out as an "I wish..."

These lists are very impressive. Has anyone made a master list of ALL the places that have appeared in the Roadfood books over the years? Perhaps as an Excel Spreadsheet or something. And of course my next question would be, if there is such a list is it available for sharing?


The reason I'm asking is that I've kept lists of every restaurant/take out and every bar/tavern I've been in since 1970 (well over 2500 of each, with some overlap, eg: Bar AND Restaurant) but since I no longer have most of the older RF books I really have no way to determine which were actual RF places, other than by making a good guess. 

Heck, I'd even be willing to purchase such a list, to compensate for time and effort.

Just thought I'd ask.

Sorry ken8038, as far as I know, nothing like that exists.  It would come in handy, though.

Jim Chips,
  Can you help me by describing the difference between a "BIMP" (post #196) and a "BUMP" (post #198) in your two posts further up this page?

In one, I am imitating a bad Peter Sellers accent, in the other I'm not.

Bought Hell's Kitchen peanut butter on-line. Very good stuff.


As I mentioned in my previous post, Hell's Kitchen was the source of one of my oddest recommendations ever.  A friend told me "Try the peanut butter.  No, really, try the peanut butter."

I usually pick up some of their peanut butter every time I'm in Minneapolis. (I also try to eat there, but they take second seat to Al's Breakfast, so I don't always make it)

What a tremendous list!  Thanks for taking the time to share it.  I did see where you put (meh) next to a few.  Do you have a few standouts?

A couple of places stand out.  I still think Al's Breakfast in Minneapolis is one of the finest breakfast places I've ever been.  Cottage in La Jolla is also on my top-10 pancake list, as is Polly's Pancake Parlor in Sugar Hill, NH.  I was raised on Pepe's Pizza in New Haven being the "One True Pizza", and it's still top-10 material for me.  I nearly killed a coworker once for refusing to stop when crossing the river into PA so I could have my Tony Luke's.  Toscanini's Ice Cream is also phenomenal (although I rate it second to Izzy's in St Paul, MN).

Mostly I really enjoyed the places.  The "mehs" are for places that I just don't get the excitement.  Geno's was attitude without substance (especially odd to see a place with all the "speak English!" signs, when I'm not really sure that ordering a "steak wit" is actually English...), and Curtis' BBQ was just plain bad (although I'm rather used to that, "New England Barbecue" is generally a phrase that makes me scared).

I actually have pictures of ~95% of these places as well, and have blogged about 1/3 of them

The Travelin Man


While I find most of the forum software upgrades to be winners, one of the things that I do miss is when threads were revived when edited for content.  I don't miss the people who used to abuse the same technology - but, this thread is one, particularly, that stands out as an "I wish..."

        I agree with my friend TTM on this one. I revise my lists on pages 2 and 7 when i add new places and feel a little awkward updating at the end of the thread, I like this particuliar thread because i love to see the lists of where other roadfooders have eaten.

I go back and edit my original list (page 4) when ever I have anything to add.  I added a number up your way recently (my wife ran the Portland marathon).

I do the same.  It is so much easier to just keep them all in one place.  But, by doing that, no one else knows that you have added on to your list.

I also edit my updates on page 2 and 7. I need to get working on adding  some reviews of local places. I also invite anyone coming to portland to contact me for a meet-up.

Sure looks like a good list MD!  Including plenty of places I haven't made it to, yet.
 
How many years ago were you at Wakullah Springs Lodge?  It has been about a decade, but I have very fond memories of the place.

I was there for the day about 33 years ago.  We were there to give a seminar, and I had lunch there.  I was really surprised to see it on your list!

Yes I was - I had the snail salad.  I didn't realize it had a Roadfood/Sterns connection.
 
OK, I found it in Eat Your Way Across the USA, 1997.
 
Thanks!

I thought you had eaten at Joe's Stone Crab, but maybe you said that you WANTED to go there.  Now I can't recall.

MD-
Hoped your visit there was recently, since I was curious if it was still there and good.  My visit was while in town for a Clemson-Florida State football game.  Considering the score of the game, the meal at Wakulla Springs Lodge was definitely the highlight.
 
TTM-
MiamiDon has not been to Joe's Stone Crab.  I remember him asking the next time in town, let him know so he can join us.

I'm using the wanderingjew rule here - I've made into the bar at Joe's, but never actually ate there.  The person I was with was going crazy about the wait on a weekend, so we bailed out and went to The Place for Steak

We spent one of the most relaxing weekends of our lives at Wakulla Springs. Like going back in time!

Much to your (perhaps sole) happiness, the long-awaited update is done. Added over 120 new places - to make over 400 total now. You have as good a shot as any to tell me which ones I missed! :-)

1 - I would like to hear your review of Denny's.  I thought they fell waaaaasy short of what a burger place should be.
 
B - If you ordered anything other than "Stickies" at the Diner, it's your own fault.
 
3 - I am extremely offended!  I can't believe you were in Old Forge and didn't reach out to me.  Not very friendly.

I've been amiss with updating stuff lately. I try to do it at least twice a year. 
Looks like I'm due.
