Touch whichever one interests you and you will be taken to a brief description of the restaurant, along with photos and descriptions of its highlighted dishes:
We use it all the time when traveling. Until now, Roadfood Mobile has been available to everyone, but after Memorial Day, it is going to be available only to Roadfood Insiders.

It's Ice Cream Season
Of course, there is no season that is wrong for ice cream, but warm summer days are especially right. If you plan to be traveling through New England (where the finest ice cream is made), be sure to check out this comprehensive Quest for the Best put together by Stephen, Chris, and Amy, rating ice cream (and hot fudge) on a one-to-five scoop scale, from southern Connecticut to northern Maine.

The Red Truck
If anyone is heading to or through the northern Virginia Piedmont, do yourself a favor and stop at the Red Truck Bakery in Warrenton. Red Truck cookies, pictured above, are a joy to eat. Bourbon cake and moonshine cake, Meyer lemon cake and Shenandoah apple cake are to die for. And there is no better granola anywhere. Have a breakfast pastry or lunch at the communal table, and come away with cookies. We can't imagine a better coffee companion than the Tuesday special cookies, known as birdseeds, made with anise, poppy, and black sesame seeds.
