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 think that the main reason that my dad travels is because of all the different eateries he gets to try. Now he has a "glove box" book for the road.Published on June 24, 2014 by Lisa Porter
