Holly Moore Has Died

Noted Roadfood pioneer Holly Moore, of "Holly Eats," has died. He was a really nice guy and contributed so much to our understanding of Regional American food. The world is poorer for his passing.

Oh, that's a shame.  Such a good person.  And if he tipped you off to a restaurant, you knew it was going to be good.  He will be missed.

I believe it was Holly who turned us all on to Charlie's Pool Room.  RIP

I occasionally interacted with him on Facebook and will miss him. I discovered Holly's food blog right about the same time I discovered this sight, around the turn of the century.  I've been enjoying great food that I read about on both sites ever since.

How sad. Holly's site led me to stop in to the Frosttop Drive in in Huntington, WV for a really memorable Root Beer. Hopefully someone will keep his site up and running. It's a valuable resource.

I couldn't remember either but thought I met him on one.  Had a couple of short but noteworthy conversations!

I only had the pleasure of meeting him one time and that was at the 2009 NOLA Roadfood Festival.

I never met Holly but I loved his website.
Although we disagreed on the quality of Pat's King of Steaks here on the forum, he inhabited the spirit of a true Roadfooder.
RIP

Looks like he's saying to Cliff, 'Look they're taking our picture!' while sneaking a bite of Cliff's pie.

Certainly the blogger who made looking for road food such an enjoyable thing to do. R.I.P. Holly.

We messaged back and forth several times. He was a nice guy and an amazingly knowledgable culinary expert. He'll be missed. RIP, Holly.

Roz and I met Holly at a Roadfood event in NOLA several years ago. Michael, Jane and Steven had a event south of NOLA and we were invited along with Holly and He invited Roz and I to ride with him.  He was very entertaining and spent quite a bit of time explaining his history which was fascinating.
We were shocked to hear of his death.

I was sorry to hear this. He was a kindred spirit...very informed, and an acknowledged authority on many varieties of food. What's more, his writing exhibited good humor, creativity, friendliness and a profound sense of fairness. Too bad.
