Our Team

Our team of writers and contributors is the driving force behind Roadfood. They have hit as many of the restaurants as they can to searching for the best roadside food in America so you don't have to!

Our contributors

Many  of our contributors have expanded their bellies in more restaurants than they could count, and compiled the best of the best to populate the website you see now.  Check out their profiles below.

Why should I trust this website?

Roadfood is a reliable place you can count on to give you insight into where to eat next.  Take your next road trip and rely on this team to guide you to your next food destination.  Roadfood restaurants are rarely fancy, never a big chain, and run by locals who bring you the best food in town.  Many of these restaurants are right off the highway, or better known as the Super Slab.  But they are also found off the beaten path and take you to places you could never find on your own.  

How it started and how it is going

Roadfood began as a two person team with Jane and Michael Stern.  They paved the way for the influencers we now know as foodies.  The two of them drove from state to state until their car broke down, stopping at restaurants along the way and always finding a new adventure.  Now, we have a new team of contributors all across the country eating their way towards the same goal; to find the best roadside food in America! Start your next Roadfood Adventure today.

Become a Roadfood Contributor!

Calling all foodies: Are you a food writer, influencer, or just love sharing great food finds in your world? Become the next great contributor to Roadfood.com! Join the legacy of award-winning and New York Times best selling authors Jane & Michael Stern who pioneered the American food scene and pursued a lifelong travel adventure. Roadfood is looking for a network of regional contributors around the country to explore regional culture through local dishes, highlighting great food trends and the restaurants that serve them.

Contributor Requirements:

  • Write approximately 600 words per restaurant with a focus on dishes and drinks that stand out

  • Implement SEO, keywords and relevant links to posts

  • Provide photography and short video for interest: Camera phones work great!

You will be provided with a general rubric for writing your posts and one-on-one training on technical skills if needed, but note that we are looking for people with distinct voices and energy. You do not need to be a professional food taster, food writer or food photographer–you just need to be passionate about uncovering hidden local gems and enthusiastic about sharing them with the audience.

In addition, Roadfood is gearing up for the second season of award winning television show, Roadfood: Discovering America One Dish at a Time on PBS.  As a regional correspondent, you may have a chance to be a key part of this show, guiding our host through your area from a food perspective.
