Roadfood memories

roadfoodFans of Jane and Michael Stern will enjoy this thread on the forums, in which Michael and his readers reminisce about some of the early Roadfood people and places that aren't around anymore.

This thread was inspired by this other one on Roadfood restaurants that have stood the test of time (i.e., the 33 years since the l publication of the first "Roadfood" book.)

Also, enjoy looking at this Chesapeake Bay Crab Cakes eating tour.


I might go through the Sun's photo archives and post some similar photos, if at least three people here say, "I just signed up for DINING text alerts!!"

I don't know if you just want Maryland restauants, but one of our favorites was a restaurant on Rt 40 on the way to Atlantic City..typical diner-type fare but the best part was the great ice chocolate chip ever alas last summer they were closed...really sad..they had been there for over 50 years
