If you’re on the road this summer, you’ll inevitably face the dilemma of where to eat. And while I understand the temptation to take the easy way out and pull into the first national chain restaurant or fast food place you see, allow me to suggest a much tastier alternative.
The folks at Roadfood.com have made it their mission to discover the country’s best places to stuff your face, from great barbecue joints and bakeries to authentic diners and drive-ins. The kind of informal, inexpensive eateries that locals love but few travelers ever discover.
The website’s database of more than 1,200 restaurant reviews is searchable by state, city, type of food, or all the above. On our cross-country trip along Route 66 a few years back, we used the Roadfood book as our bibleof good eating and its recommendations never once steered us wrong.
So please, take my advice: Don’t travel halfway across the country and eat the same mass-produced food you could eat at home. Check out Roadfood.com (or buy the book) and have yourself a truly extraordinary eating experience!
