It would be very interesting to see TODAY'S POST list on a date about ten years ago.
It would show how different it is today and would make some interesting reading
Also what happened to the Roadfood trips that Roadfood sponsored like New Orleans?
I'm sure Mr Hoffman remembers them

I guess that when Roadfood was sold the trips were among the changes.

Here's my very first post, 06/24/2007.  (The thread's post #12).
 
Roadfood.com had been featured in a Dallas Morning News article that morning.  I found it interesting and logged on.  A thread about one of our local favorites, Babe's Chicken Dinner House, was "Recent/Hot" and I just had to get my two cents in.

Interesting for sure...
 
I could add to the Babe's thread but it's 'so old'!
 
I've been to 3 of the locations.

With permission...
 
I've been to the Sanger, Frisco and Plano locations.  They are all different.  Sanger was in a huge square building and every table and chair was different.  Very Warehouse-like.
 
Frisco was right next to a train museum so a little of that was noted as were the tourists the buses dropped off. It had a western feel to me as well as touristy.
 
Plano was in a strip mall and I just happened to notice it on the way to somewhere else.  OF COURSE I STOPPED!
 
I bet I can find some photos on my phone or on other forums if I try. 
 
It's about the chicken.
In Sanger, my first I ordered the baked chicken.  DRY and almost inedible for me.  I was later told I should have just told them, but I'm usually not one to complain to the server unless there's a real problem.
 
The fried chicken in Frisco and Plano was wonderful.  The gravy is a cream gravy and my sides were green beans and mashed potatoes.  I found that dessert isn't part of lunch which is quite okay.  You don't leave Babe's hungry.

I didn't bother with the biscuits because I would have filled up on them before ever getting the food.
 
Off to find some photos!
 
I'll be back.
 
All three started out with a big bowl of iceberg salad that I found very refreshing.  I think the dressing is oil, vinegar and sugar.  I really liked it.  It was a never ending bowl if I wanted...
 

 
Sanger: 
Guess I ordered the corn.  That gravy seams rich with cream and I've become a HUGE fan of mashed potatoes and gravy.
 
In all of the locations they use multi-colored ceramic plates that give it a nice feel.  The food is served family style even though I was my myself, mostly.  I made up my plates.  That gravy!  Very milky, maybe made with evaporated milk.  My mother told me, "You don't love food".  I love this gravy!
 
I was also impressed that they serve individual packages of Plugra Butter.  Nice!
 

 
Plano:

Frisco:
 

 
I'd go back in a heartbeat!!!

Maybe that needs to be moved to the Babe's thread?  Anyone know how?

I would say "comprehensive" rather than "creeping".  But, yes, the entirety of Roadfood is most certainly there.

I would have marked you post "Helpful", but mar52 beat me to it.
