Thanks jessicazee… Traveling thru the kewpee website found this intresting link:
Here is a link to a guy’s website where he reviews places all over the country. Road food type places. If the restaurant he’s reviewing has a web site, he usually has the link to it.
I’ve found his short reviews pretty enjoyable reading. He’s a real hot dog fan [8D]
I first found this burger & bierock tavern website when Wandering Jew wanted to take his stadium tour. Then it googled in when I looked at the burgers across Kansas guy’s choices. They have tenders too, as you can see from the sign. This is the sort of a reverse roadfood omen that intrigues me enough because of their site and that 3lb. burger that I’ve got to go check it out when we get back to kansas next summer. It looks like a roadfood state of mind.
Lonestar: Make it a #47 and I’m there!!
Well Cheesewit, you and your little pastry just come on down and I’ll buy you a #34 and a shaved ice margarita!
I work in the Heights and just love it.
When I was in the food business, I traveled frequently to Houston to call on Randall’s and Weingarten’s, etc. One of my college housemates lived in The Heights while attending law school and we always went to Spanish Village for Mexican. Oh how I miss it!!!!!
Love this topic! I like to check out websites from some of the places discussed here that I will probably never get to visit due to distance.
Here is a link to a 50 year old spot (my favorite) that has the best enchiladas on earth. If any of y’all are coming here for the superbowl – do not miss it! (close to the stadium)
One of my favorite Roadfood style eats is the Corner Bar in Rockford Michigan.
I passed along the Keaton BBQ web address to Michael to add to his reviw page. SO funny though[:D] as they were still using a box for change when we were there. Not exactly a high tech kind of place…not sure I saw a computer. LOL[}:)]
I’m finding that quite a few places included in the Roadfood dining guides now have Web sites. As a matter of course, I search for Web sites whenever I read about a new place that interests me.
Recently, I started a forum discussion about Keaton’s BBQ near Statesville, N.C. Before posting my comments, I looked for a Keaton’s Web site. Voila, there was their new Web site! http://www.keatonsoriginalbbq.com
In the past few weeks, I’ve visited Web sites for the Blue Willow Inn in Social Circle, Georgia., Stamey’s in Greensboro, North Carolina, Kreuz Market in Lockhart, Texas. And others I can t recall just now.
A lot of the smaller mom and pop type places don t have a Web site and probably never will. I can’t imagine ever finding one for Mt. Airy s Snappy Lunch, or Hot Thomas Barbecue and Peach Orchard in Watkinsville, Georgia. Or for B s Barbecue and Grill in Greenville, N. C., a place that purposely doesn t list a phone.
Incidentally, it seems that Roadfood places with Web sites often do catering.
Maybe future editions of Roadfood and new Roadfood.com reviews will include a Web site address. I d like that.
A lot of site members include a Web address (if one is available) when they mention a roadfood place in a forum discussion.
Though a roadfood place may not have its own Web site, there are often numerous online articles and reviews with information more useful than a proprietary Web site would provide.
We just ate at the Sycamore Drive-In, the one on the cover of the latest Roadfood, for the umpteenth time. There was a note posted on the door going in announcing their new website: http://www.sycamoredrivein.com
It is a work in progress, showing mostly scenes from an Elvis concert in the parking lot.
We were wondering if any of the other fabulous roadfood sites have interesting websites. This is an on-line phenomenon we’re in.
