An Eater's Guide to More Than 1,000 of the Best Local Hot Spots and Hidden Gems Across AmericaeBook - 2017
"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.' The 40th anniversary edition of Roadfood includes 1,000 of America's best local eateries along highways and back roads, with nearly 200 new listings, as well as a brand new design. Filled with enticing alternatives for chain-weary-travelers, Roadfood provides descriptions of and directions to (complete with regional maps) the best lobster shacks on the East Coast; the ultimate barbecue joints down South; the most indulgent steak houses in the Midwest; and dozens of top-notch diners, hotdog stands, ice-cream parlors, and uniquely regional finds in between. Each entry delves into the folkways of a restaurant's locale as well as the dining experience itself, and each is written in the Sterns' entertaining and colorful style. A cornucopia for road warriors and armchair epicures alike, Roadfood is a road map to some of the tastiest treasures in the United States"-- Provided by publisher.
