I think it's either 11 or 12.  You can check the list that's been compiled so far.

I totally recommend it- Go for their incredibly huge salad bar- it's  not just an ordinary salad bar- it's a classic Iowa style heartland Salad bar! 
BTW- I've been to 11!

Too fancy for the likes of me.  Although it might be worth it to see Buddy in his dress flannel.

Apparently you are confusing me with ChiVegan15.  I'm going for the chicken!

I've been to five that are/were "official" Roadfood restaurants:  Golden Lamb, Cattleman's, Weidmann's, Buckhorn Exchange and Tadich Grill.  And one other, Antoines.

I've eaten in seven but I really can't believe Minnesota's selection of Pracna on Main as being the oldest. It was not a restaurant from prohibition until the 1970s. In the 70's it was part of a development at the time and I am not sure if the actual space was re-used but the name was revived. I participated in the development. Then it closed again and new ownership opened it with a limited bar menu. They self-promote it as the oldest. I would hardly give it it's due and certainly not roadfoodworthy in a historical context unless you are a baby boomer reliving the 70s.

In the very first one, it calls Alabama’s Bright Star a tiny cafe. Meanwhile, it is a huge place with multiple dining rooms. There are several Roadfood restaurants that would fit inside their waiting room. With research like that, who knows how many things they have wrong.

And It’s a little disappointing I have only been to 13. My family visited Robert Morris Inn in Maryland, while I was attending Robert Morris College. Good memories from there.

For Michigan, the article lists the 165 yr old White Horse Inn in Metamora as the oldest restaurant in the state ... a nice place and old, for sure ... but my absolute favorite old restaurant in Michigan is the 186 yr old Eagle Tavern in Dearborn.
 
Though it has had name and ownership changes and the building was even moved once
(by Henry Ford to Greenfield Village), it is absolutely still my favorite really old establishment for a shrub or a glass of hock or a tankard of ale.
 
Originally known as Parks Tavern when built in Clinton, Michigan, around 1831, the inn
was renamed the Eagle Tavern in 1849 and the name remained until the Civil War, when it
became the Union Hotel.
In 1850 Calvin C. Wood and his wife, Harriet, owned and ran the the inn and tavern.
Walter Hubbell Smith purchased the inn in 1864 ... and it was his daughter and heir, Mary
Ella Smith, that sold it to Henry Ford in 1925 who renamed it The Clinton Inn.
In 1982 the name was changed from the Clinton Inn back to the Eagle Tavern.

I've only done 5...I am also having a hard time believing the Palace is the oldest in Maine as I recall some downtime in it's history also.

Yet another sucky list.  It starts a haunted restaurant list when you get to Wyoming.

Alot on this list contradicts a book that I have called "A Century of Restaurants" for example the book mentions the Pleasant Point Inn in Center Lovell Maine as the oldest restaurant having been established in 1911

So yesterday I visited Georgia's oldest restaurant. The Plaza Restaurant covers half a city block and contains a bar,a buffet dining room, and a nicer menu order dining room. The lunch buffet was very well done and was quite busy. I need to get back at night to sample oysters in the bar.
