Reactions to “Roadfood: The Coast-to-Coast Guide to 800 of the Best Barbecue Joints, Lobster Shacks, Ice Cream Parlors, Highway Diners, and Much, Much More” by Jane & Michael Stern

RoadfoodRoadfood by Jane Stern
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The grandfather of one of the great culinary movements – progenitor of all sorts of media, such as “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” – but even the most recent edition is a little long in the tooth.

This kind of guidebook is almost irrelevant in the online age, as demonstrated by descriptions of establishments that are no longer open (or at least have evolved beyond recognition) or quaint backroads explorations before GPS.

The Sterns have moved to the web, where the Roadfood.com forum is among the best resources for those interested in true regional American cuisine served in non-corporate settings.
