This is a really fun book to read. The authors have visited all these places across the country. If you’re planning a road trip, this book is for you. They really go into detail about each place and give what’s great to order.
We’ve been to the La Super-Rica in Santa Barbara and their description is spot on. It is barely a restaurant and it has florescent lights. But the food is very authentic and of course, this place was made famous by Julia Child, who frequented it when she visited SB.
Based on their very accurate description of La Super-Rica, I would trust their reviews of other places.
I would have like more reviews of California especially Northern California but what they did, I think, would be fun to visit if you’re on a road trip.
We also have been to Tecolote in Santa Fe and believe it was and has been one of the greatest breakfasts I’ve ever had. So again, their description is spot on.
I would definitely recommend this fun book of restaurants and cafes.

2 thoughts on “‘ROAD FOOD” by Jane and Michael Stern”
I loved this book too! One of the places in the book, Otto’s, in Portland, was a 10 minute walk from our house in Portland! We loved to walk up there for lunch, for one of their grilled sausages.
Another favorite Jane and Michael Stern book that we enjoyed was “The Encyclopedia of Bad Taste.” I don’t know if it’s even in print any more, but it’s very funny (and spot on).
I would love to go on a road trip just to stop at some of these places. It’s reassuring to see in there at least 2 places we’ve been and they were great. such fun. I want to go up to Portland on a mini vacation. We’re maybe a 12 hour drive away so we’d have to stop somewhere but that could be fun. My husband has been to Portland numerous times for the food shows. Once he brought home Voodoo donuts.
