Roadfood by Jane and Michael Stern {A book review}

Matt and I have been talking for a while about taking a trip together as a family based around fun cities to visit, possible sites to see and most importantly around restaurants where we would like to eat. When we travel, we are big time foodies. We don't necessarily need to eat at the most expensive impressive restaurant in the city. We want to eat at the places that everyone that lives in that city or town know and love. The holes in the wall. The diner. The dive. The family owned meat and three restaurant. Those are our favorites. 

We are planning to take our first fun trip in January and our stops will be in North Carolina, eastern South Carolina, and Georgia. We hope to expand our horizons after our first trip and go elsewhere. We will see how it all goes. Our plan is to stay in local B&B's and really immerse ourselves in the culture. FUN FUN FUN!

All of that being said, when we saw the book, Roadfood, up for review with Blogging for Books, we knew we needed to check it out. This book arrived and we were both shocked at the thickness of it. Roadfood boasts a list of 900 restaurants all over the country and even includes a list of the writers top 100 places including some from each area of the country. 

For each restaurant, there is an address, phone number and website if available, as well as a price guide for the restaurant. Below that information, a blurb is written about each restaurant possibly telling the favorite foods they serve, a bit of history about the place, etc. Each was fun to read. A restaurant was even listed for our sweet town, The Beacon Drive-In. 

This book is a great resource for foodies and those looking for new places to stop on a road trip. We have several places starred to check out on our trip in January. 

**I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for this review.**
