Book Review: Roadfood

Roadfood: An Eater's Guide to More Than 1,000 of the Best Local Hot Spots and Hidden Gems Across America is written by Jane Stern and Michael Stern

This current issue of Roadfood is the tenth edition, and it was first published in 1977. As a personal travel guidebook, the authors focused on various restaurants and dining options across the United States with about 200 new listings and a brand new design.

According to the back cover: "For road warriors and armchair epicures, the fortieth-anniversary edition of Roadfood is the indispensable guide to more than 1,000 of America's best local eateries....enticing alternatives to chain restaurants."

This book includes the following eight sections: New England, Mid-Atlantic, Mid-South, Deep South, Midwest, Southwest, Great Plains, and West Coast with each regional section divided into chapters by states. There are additional chapters titled as Introduction, Roadfood Honor Roll: The 100, Notes About Using This Book, and Restaurant by Region and State index.

Roadfood is an interesting restaurant travel guidebook, which is geared towards all ages, from young adults to older generations.

Note: I received this book from Blogging for Books, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.


  1. I have an earlier edition; one goal is to try a bunch of these as we travel across the country.
