Welcome Our New Restaurant Review Editor !!!!! - Mon, 11/11/13 9:48 AM
0

We take great pleasure in introducing Cliff Strutz (BuffetBuster) as the new Roadfood Restaurant Review Editor for the website. Cliff has been a very active member of the Roadfood forums for many years, submitting excellent reports of his visits to a wide variety of "RoadFoodie Locations" all across America.
 
Traveling with his 'Side-Kick' Cousin Johnny, this pair of food-oriented explorers have introduced literally hundreds of new places to the forum members over the years. We look forward to reading more of these successful visits in the rejuvenated Restaurant Review Section of the Website.
 
Members will find that submitting their Reviews and Updates to the site will receive Cliff's full attention so as to add to the large inventory of place-locations already on file. Start putting together the entries you have been holding and let's all work to help Cliff get off to a flying start on his new activities here on Roadfood.Com. Further details of the process of publishing entries will be forthcoming from our new EDITOR.
 
Welcome Aboard , Cliff !!

A well deserved honor for a great contributor to RoadFood whose trip reports have always made me drool over my keyboard.
 
As an aside, I believe I see our late, great friend, Bushie in the background of the above picture of Cliff.

Cliff - I hope this doesn't affect your day job or, more importantly, your clearing up your backlog of un-posted trip reports.
 
Good luck, I know you'll make this fun.

A big thank you to everyone for their kind words and to Al and Paul for the warm welcome to the Roadfood team.  If you see a sudden surge in the amount of pie shops reviewed on Roadfood, you will know who to blame!

And here I thought clearing up my backlog of half finished and unposted trip reports was my day job!

Pie shops and places that top every dish with a truckload of french fries...

Mr. Strutz,
 
Congrats on the new position.
 
But can you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE finish your Iowa trip report titled "If you bake it, he will come"? 
It is my favorite trip report on this site yet it sits unfinished!

That was also one of my favorite trips to take.  I really love Iowa.  Okay, this report will get finished, although it might not happen for a little while until other stuff gets cleaned up.
 
Thanks again to everyone for the generous comments.  They are very much appreciated!

Good for you, Buffetbuster.  I cannot think of anyone better to fill this position!  (and I gather that all of Mariton's family is doing well ?)

I appreciate that Greymo and thanks for asking about Mariton's family.  She originally thought all her family was safe, but she found out yesterday that she does have an aunt and cousins who live in Tacloban, which was ravaged by the typhoon.  As of now, no one in her family has heard from them and she is very worried.

First order of action- reinstate Juice Kaboose
 
Second order of action- de-archive all the FAVORABLE reviews of Durgin Park and post 'em!
 
'll make sure all my future reviews are full of grammatical errors to keep you on your toes.
 
I'm glad you chose to accept your position as restaurant editor....

Haven't had the pleasure of meeting you in person, BB, but sure have learned a lot and shared the pleasure of some of your roadfoodie spots you've written about over the years. Ditto to all the congrats and best wishes above!!!

Gotta share a fun story-Cliff is so into food -we shared many thoughts over the years, and were thrilled we would finally meet. And we did in Mobile. The best part was a hug and then he went back to the food. THAT is a true roadfood guy!

That's only because I thought hugging you while eating might be considered rude!  It was wonderful to finally meet you this year Ann!
