By Dom Miliano VINE VOICE on January 10, 2012
Format: Paperback
I discovered these two foodies years ago and have been buying their books every time a new edition comes out. Road Food, Good Food, Road Food/Good Food and Eat Your Way Across the USA - they have all served me and my wife well. We even give copies away as gifts.

Be aware, the authors are not dieters. If you ate every day at the places they chronicle, you might not pass your next physical. But using their recommendations for insider tips when you are on a trip to a new part of this great country is perfectly OK. For example - I was in Charlotte, NC with over 5 hours until my flight home to NJ. I called my wife and she directed me, using Road Food, to Lexington, NC and a great BBQ place (Speedy's). The book has it's limitations too. Because food joints open and close frequently, you could get disappointed, chasing a place that has gone belly up (pun intended). I speak from experience when we looked for a Bratwurst place in Sheboygan, WI, only to find it boarded up. Fortunately, the book directed us to another eatery close by but the lesson learned is call first!

You have to like eating and you have to like eating in casual, "home cooking" kind of places or this book won't work for you. Don't expect recommendations for haut cuisine establishments. Think atmospheric clam shacks, locals-only hot dog stands, cool burger joints and, of course, amazing and authentic BBQ. Our favorite find is Abbott's Lobster in the Rough (I think the first entry in every book they have written). You would NEVER find this place unless someone told you or you read it in a book. Their hot lobster roll sandwich is, as then say in New Yawk - "tadiefor". And I have Jane and Michael to thank for that.

Like to eat? Like local, insider-knowledge only kind of places? And Like to meet friendly locals? Get this book and get ready to hit the road.

I bought the first Road Food when it first was published, and tried many of it's entries. My love of that book prompted me to buy this one. I was not disappointed! My wife and I enjoy traveling by car abound the country. This book is an essential reference for our trips.

As full-time RV'rs, we look through this book when we are on the road. Haven't been disappointed yet, hopefully we will have the chance to try all the restaurants in the book.

We just returned from a two week road trip to the East Coast and Nova Scotia. The goal was to drive all back roads. There were 6 cars with us on our little adventure. I took the Roadfood book that was purchased specifically for this backroads trip. It was perfect !! We ate in some of the restaurants and they lived up to what was written in the book. I particularly liked that the chapters were separated by regions then by states in that region. Perfect! Great book, it added to the overall adventure!

I love going to non-chain restaurants while traveling, and this book lists good ones in every state. Sometimes, I have to go a little out of my way to get to them, but it's always worthwhile and adds to the adventure. I have 3G with my Kindle, so I always have access to the book in the car. Highly recommended.

Bought this as a stocking stuffer for my husband. He has been known to take a 200+ motorcycle ride to buy lunch at someplace he saw on tv. So this is perfect for him. I guess he'll be riding more now.

even though i bought this as a gift for someone traveling by car across half the country, i did manage to use a couple of pages of recommended advice for good local road food and it did not disappoint either in jacksonville FL or in fernandina beach FL. i only wish i were using the book myself to travel through virginia and tennessee like my friends.

Overheard a couple raving about this book when we were dining out on a recent road trip. My husband and I are both retired and we love to travel --- AND we love to EAT! What better way to plan a trip than around our favorite things? This book has everything you need to know about where to go and what to order. Can't wait for the next road trip to try out some of their suggestions.
