@wanderingjew A little to flashy maybe and certainy not cheap. Maybe I am wrong but when I think of roadfood I think more along the line of little independent diners, truckstops, delis, etc where you can get hearty portions at reasonable prices.
While I am not quibbling about the price of my breakfast ($12.95 for the breakfast entree) it is certainly more than I am accustomed to paying for breakfast in Indiana. The value for the money was certainly there because I had breakfast at 10am in Vegas and didn't eat again until 10pm in Chicago and was not famished at that point so I certainly got a lot of food for the money and the quality and taste was excellent.
I guess one of the great things about roadfood is that it is open to interpetation as to what is and what isn't and it certainly can lead to some lively discussions.
, have you ever read the Stern's Pre Website
Books? You might be in for a surprise. It's true, roadfood is almost always inexpensive, but the key word is almost, however regionality- food that's unique to a local region
was more the emphasis, especially in the Pre Website
believe it or not the following restaurants are in fact considered "Roadfood
