Summary
  • Over the last three decades, Jane and Michael Stern have logged more than three million miles on America"s two-lane highways, eating some 72,427 meals-and counting-often at the rate of twelve a day. Roadfood, their best-selling guide to the quirky eateries that lie beyond the blur of McSomethings, has become a glove-box bible for chain-weary travelers who want authentic barbecue or homemade pie. In this laugh-out-loud culinary memoir, the Sterns tell the story behind their lifelong road trip. Two for the Road offers a front-seat view of smoke pits with velvet-soft pulled pork on the tables, boardinghouse- style restaurants whose lazy Susans are filled with fried chicken, yeast rolls, turnip greens, and coconut custard pie, and cafes where customized mugs for regulars hang on pegboards
  • Along the way, the Sterns meet unforgettable characters, endure meals from the Hall of Infamy, and gradually formulate their own rules of the road. When you want to find a great restaurant, forget the yellow pages and the concierge: ask the local cop or barber. Run like hell from anything called "World Famous." Sure bets: the place with a giant plastic animal on the roof or pictures of Jesus on the walls. Each chapter ends with the Stern"s best recipe finds, from white clam pizza to Elvis"s favorite pound cake
