Going on a road trip? Well ..... with this book in hand and a GPS, you'll be able to find some mighty fine meals along the way. Not fine dining mind you, but rather local eateries offering really good food. And what fun is that! You gotta eat anyway, so why not try something special enough to have made it into a book.

My husband and I have been big fans of Jane and Michael Stern for years. So as we headed out on a cross-country road trip, we made a special effort to get their latest 10th edition

I'm kind of excited for Road Food by Jane & Michael Stern. I've heard from friends years ago about this, but never really had the chance to look it up. And since I'm not very good with directions, it's hard to tell where I am when I'm on the road. Looking it up on their website wouldn't be ideal. I'll usually just hop off to a fast food joint or a Cracker Barrel. When Road Food hit my hands, I was so excited, I looked through the book in one sitting. It was actually not a book to read sittin ...more

I was so excited to be getting this book. Living in Southwest Missouri and so close to Branson (a major tourist destination) I figured I might have the chance to discover or even rediscover a local-ish place (Think Leong's Asian Diner - Goggle it). On this front I was disappointed. Upon opening the book for the first time, it was of course to scour the Missouri listings. All St. Louis and Kansas City area, with a side step to Columbia. So much of the state, with it's own amazing history and hidd

Roadfood, a guide to over 1,000 of the Best local eats across America, was a fun book to browse through and will definitely take a place on our trips as we travel around the country. Often when we travel we have a deep desire to sample the local cuisine, or even the one of a kind eatery. However, the reality is when in a new place with the family, we often find ourselves resorting to the well known restaurant brands, and as such completely miss out on a huge part of the travel experience. Of cou ...more

Roadfood is a wonderful compilation of restaurants throughout the country. I took this book along with us when we took a trip and we were glad we had it. The descriptions were just enough to entice us to try some places while leaving some of the magic of the stops to unveil themselves upon arrival. The information including pricing was up to date. The maps were confusing in a couple of places however the maps aren’t designed to get you to the door rather to help travelers plan trips in specific ...more

This is an excellent road trip book. It gives you great ideas of places to stop to eat anywhere you are going in the US. It even gave me some ideas for day trips in my own state to go eat at places that I've never gone before. This is a book that I think will always be with me on trips, or even something to plan trips around. Such a great idea and well executed. The one thing that would have really raised this book above the bar would have been a few pictures of the food. That would have been fa ...more

This review is also available on my blog, Read Till Dawn.

I will be the first to admit that I'm not a foodie–at all. You're probably wondering why I agreed to review Roadfood, then. The truth is that I just liked the idea of a guidebook to travel food, and I wanted to see if it would really help my family pick where to eat while we travel.

The truth is that it probably wouldn't. This is mostly because I come from a family of not-foodies, and there are six of us so we have to work really hard at k

About the Book:

First published in 1977, the original Roadfood became an instant classic. James Beard said, "This is a book that you should carry with you, no matter where you are going in these United States. It's a treasure house of information."

Now this indispensable guide is back, in an even bigger and better edition, covering 500 of the country's best local eateries from Maine to California. With more than 250 completely new listings and thorough updates of old favorites, the new Roadfood of

This is a handy book to have if you enjoy traveling. I love going to new places and this book multiple places listed for each state. I didn't see anything in the book as a place I had been before so I need to find these places, even if just in my own state.

I think adding some pictures would make this book a bit better and more visual but otherwise it is easy to read and follow.



Five stars.

Like all their books, this latest (hopefully not last) edition of 'Roadfood' is a delight. On a practical note, over the years I have visited many of the Stern's recommended haunts and been thrilled with all of them. But even if you visit none, 'Roadfood' is a gem, filled with history, mouth watering descriptiveness, humour, and of course pure food love. Perfect for an actual road trip, or an arm chair reverie.

An Eater's Guide to More Than 1,000 of the Best Local Hot Spots and Hidden Gems Across America is one of the coolest books!

Have you ever been on a road trip, but struggled to find good food or you weren't sure what the area was known for? This is your go to book for all road trips and GOOD food! From around the country, you can find the neatest rest ...more

The focus is not on deluxe fare, but on everyday local food;

"Burgers are nothing like fast-food burgers; they are thick, hand-formed patties, cooked to order, and fairly spurting juice at first bite.

If you're hungry and also need an oil change, call ahead to the service station (where the pumps open at seven and the garage at nine) and make an appointment. Your vehicle can be in and out in thirty minutes, which is about as long as it takes to order and enjoy breakfast next door. The service stat
