    1. First off, I have to say that this review is for the 2008 version of Roadfood. The writers, Jane and Michael Stern have done several editions and this is the latest. I really expected to like this book; I'm a big fan of the Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives and other offbeat shows and books about food and sadly, this book merely rated average for me. This is a unique review for me in that I'm reviewing other people's reviews and everyone's opinion is different making it hard to judge.The book is sepa [...]

    2. If the title Roadfood made you perk up a bit, or if you catch yourself telling friends to go out of their way to visit a particular dive while traveling, or if your own personal map of the country is strung up between a network of places you ate, then this is the reference you need. We consult it before any trip. If, on the other hand, you will be dining at Red Lobster on your next trip, then never mind. And fuck you.

    3. If you travel a lot in America and love to try new restaurants, this is the book for you!It lists the local hot spots and hidden gems across the country! I will definitely be dipping into this as I travel in the future! It was interesting to see what was included for Virginia and Missouri (both places I've lived). All in all, a great reference book for travelers who love to eat! There are no recipes in this one, it's simply a book with names, addresses and descriptions of various restaurants for [...]

    4. WARNING: Reading this book when you are anything less than post-Thanksgiving dinner FULL will be something close to torture.While I question some glaring omissions - the book mentions every single pizza parlor in Connecticut, but not ONE in Chicago? Really? - and they did get the one entry from my hometown wrong - NO ONE eats kringle warm and buttered! - it's still a really great book full of don't-miss regional foods.

    5. Jane and Michael Stern have updated their utterly delicious foodie’s guide across America, RoadFood, with 200 new locations and dining experiences since their previous 2008 version. Ya’ll, we’re looking at more than 1000 food locations total! Pick a state – any state – and get ready to loosen your pant’s waistline because there’s some good eating in here. In fact, I was super impressed with the locations they chose in NC, some I had eaten at and others I hadn’t even heard about. [...]

    6. I wish I would've discovered this BEFORE I came home from a 5 week road trip! Time to go back out again I guess

    7. I just received the 10th edition of Roadfood for a book review. Forget about Guy Fieri. The Sterns are better! This book is a must-have for foodies and people who love road trips.

    8. This book is, plain and simple, fun. Making the pleasure the greater is that I have eaten at some of these places. As with all such books, part of the fun is asking why some places did NOT make the list here. Why didn't the "Billy Goat Tavern," made famous decades ago on Saturday Night Live, in Chicago make it? Or the "Blue Moon Cafe" in Baltimore? Or "Kuppy's" in Middletown, PA? And that's part of the fun of books like this. For instance, I went to graduate school in Buffalo. So I was delighted [...]

    9. This may be my favorite book ever. The Sterns know food so well that I think they might be made out of cheeseburgers and scrambled eggs. There isn't anything I can think of right now that I don't like better than eating in a run-down diner, and this guide celebrates and achingly describes the best in the U.S. I am not lying when I tell you that I look at the book just about every day. Unfortunately, I have been unable to patronize the vast majority of the included eateries, but the Sterns, perha [...]

    10. Wow what a road trip this has been! It took me over a month but I finally completed this book. When reading 700 restaurant reviews from coast to coast this is going to be one long journey, and don't forget this one runs almost 600 pages. While this may be a book that you would not want to take on like I did, and read it from cover to cover, it is still a great reference book for the traveler. If you find yourself in some strange state and you are looking for some good food these folks can defini [...]

    11. The main drawback to this book is that reading it is frustrating. I got so hungry as I read all the descriptions of meals they enjoyed at all the restaurants that I could hardly stand it, and I know I'm unlikely to ever eat in the vast majority of those places. How I would love to join the Sterns on their travels!I agree with another poster who pointed out the cutesiness of some of the language; "fish-frowner" is pretty silly. And I too wondered how many times they were going to describe pork as [...]

    12. Do you know what this book really needs? Maps. At least that's what I thought as I thumbed through the relevant chapters on a recent trip to PA and OH. Only after I got home did I discover that is does have maps at the beginning of each region. So you know what this book really needs? Maps at the beginning of each state's chapter, so you can find them (and so they could be larger)! Or tabs to lead you to the maps. Or different colors for the map pages. Something that makes them easy to find!I wa [...]

    13. The grandfather of one of the great culinary movements - progenitor of all sorts of media, such as "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" - but even the most recent edition is a little long in the tooth.This kind of guidebook is almost irrelevant in the online age, as demonstrated by descriptions of establishments that are no longer open (or at least have evolved beyond recognition) or quaint backroads explorations before GPS. The Sterns have moved to the web, where the Roadfood forum is among the best r [...]

    14. There is a certain unique charm in a book with a basket of fried chicken on the front cover. The writing is charming and the book broken down into regional areas. It is clear the authors have a certain craving for specific types of foods I may not be crazy about. I never knew there were so many hot dog restaurants in the country. It's obvious from the narrative of the writing, that the couple actually took a Roadtrip to write about these destinations. The drawback is that they stuck to all the l [...]

    15. Whatever the Sterns want to write, I will read! We got the very first Roadfood book, was that back in the 70's?, and have purchased most of the revisions through the years. This is one of the best food along the route guides I know of and it's a pleasure to pull it out and try someplace new. A personal favorite that has shown up in several editions is the Harraseeket Lunch and Lobster in Freeport Maine. My mouth waters just thinking about it!It's such fun to read the reviews, even for places you [...]

    16. Jane Grossman and Michael Stern are impassioned food enthusiasts, taking to the open road and seeking out that figurative and literal slice of Americana in restaurants throughout the United States. I enjoy their regular guest appearances on American Public Media'sThe Splendid Table. The restaurant reviews are divided by region, and then by state. Check out the restaurants in your home state here and also on their website, roadfood. I can feel my mouth watering and my arteries clogging as I read [...]

    17. This is the second time I've bought this book, since I figured the 1970s one was probably out of date by now! If you'd like to take a road trip and not just eat at McDonald's or whatever other chain restaurant you find along the Interstate, and don't mind getting off the highway for a few minutes (or are shunpiking), this is the book for you. The Sterns are well-versed in regional specialties and aren't above eating hot dogs in many varieties. Highly recommended.

    18. This would be a nice resource book to keep in the car or your suitcase. Short of that, Roadfood does have a useful website full of excellent reviews. I love diner food, but am especially driven to find the perfect Pork Tenderloin sandwich. Trust me: few meet my rigid requirements. It is also fun simply to read the reviews as they give you an immediate flavor for the part of the country in which they are located. Just don't read this when you are hungry.

    19. This is a fun read, but I found that it had limited use in the larger scheme of road tripping. The book mentions few locations near the highways one would actually use. The authors must have assumed that most road trippers would stop only in the larger cities and then in the center of those cities. This speaks to either the type of traveling done by the authors or that "better" food is really mostly found in urban areas.

    20. A must read for anyone traveling across this great land with 5-7 pounds to gain. Shows you where the places to truly experience American road cuisine from the Sonoran hot dog to the best barbecue to the finest boudin money can buy. Do it for yourself, do it for America.

    21. This is more of a reference guide so it will most likely be on the "currently reading" list. I have an older edition but just got the 2011 edition for my Nook and I am excited to try some of the new additions. Was quite pleased to see Don's Original added to the New York chapter.

    22. Great resource for those who like to avoid "chain" dining! We do not agree with all of the reviews - one restaurant was a huge disappointment. Another problem is that at lease 3 of the recommended restaurants were closed when we found them! Call before you go.

    23. I pored over the early edition of this and checked it out multiple times from the library. I think it was that sense of travel and exoticism combined with pictures that did it for me.I need to get my hands on the newer version of this to see if that blast from the past is still the same kick.

    24. An updated version of their classic guide to independent, mostly low-cost restaurants. It makes you want to jump in your car and hit the highway, stopping for barbeque, clam chowder and coconut cream pie!

    25. Another good reference book for those who travel. Contains references that will help locate the best BBQ, burgers, chicken and other local favorites. I call it a " Micky-d " avoidance resource. It lives on Kindle, so it precludes RV clutter.

    26. I use this book (and the ever-growing website) as a reference whether I am going to a new town up the road or driving across the country. I never go on a trip without consulting it. It has steered me wrong once or twice, but the wins are BIG wins.

    27. Very interesting and enjoyable. Organized by geographic regions and the states within. All the restaurants sounded great but my takeaway was that I want to take a road trip, anywhere. Skimmed book but read carefully the areas I would like to see. Fun.

    28. This is the definitive guide to American Roadside eateries. I've owned every edition of this book (this one is the latest), and eaten at dozens of "Roadfood" restaurants. Nearly every restaurant I've tried that Jane and Michael Stern recommend has been outstanding.

    29. An updated version of their classic guide to independent, mostly low-cost restaurants. It makes you want to jump in your car and hit the highway, stopping for barbeque, clam chowder, and coconut cream pie!

    30. I love road food. I have an endless facination with food and what people like to eat. The Sterns were the precursors of Diners, Drive-ins, & Dives.
