Review: Roadfood, 10th Edition by:Jane and Michael Stern

 Roadfood, 10th Edition: An Eater's Guide to More Than 1,000 of the Best Local Hot Spots and Hidden Gems Across America
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 offers an extended tour of the most affordable, most enjoyable dining options along America's highways and back roads.

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.


My Review: 
 What better way to travel across the United States than with this handy companion by your side. You can take this with you on a road trip and be pleasantly entertained with all the different food stops you can make. 

 This book is seriously something that you can take with you on vacation. It comes complete with restaurant names, addresses, phone numbers, and a fantastic description of what they serve. And everything is cross referenced by state. So it is filled with facts and really easy to follow. It also gives you a guide on how expensive the food is at each establishment.  

 A great guide for food on the road!
