If you're road-tripping across the good ol' U.S. of A., or if you find yourself flying to a new city for business, and you're in the mood for some truly all-American fare, consult Eat Your Way Across the U.S.A.
. Authors Jane and Michael Stern cover some 500 places, including chili parlors, doughnut shops, urban restaurants, small-town cafes, and everything in between, with wit and style. Dividing the country by region, the Sterns survey an average of ten restaurants per state, giving address, phone number, and price information as well as a succinct review of the fare to be found. Informative sidebars, helpful road maps, and the Stern's flair for turning a phrase make this expertly organized guide almost as much fun to read as good food is to eat.
From the Publisher
"If you aren't familiar with the husband and wife writing team, let me bring you up to speed, my friends. The Sterns are road warriors with a full tank of gas and hungry bellies. They are the Bonnie and Clyde of imbibe. They are the king and queen of the royal blue-plate special. Their business cards should say: 'Have bib. Will travel.' They aren't food critics--they are lip-smacking, devoted chroniclers of all things Americana."--Orlando Sentinel
"Your glove compartment needs Eat Your Way Across the U.S.A."
--The News Tribune
"The book is not only informal and well-organized, it is wacky entertainment. The Sterns, you see, aren't just eatery experts, they're pop culture connoisseurs..."
