What to say….I’m curious as to what the American road feels like under my tires and in my belly. There are thousands of good restaurants out there and most of us never even venture out of our local 15 mile comfort zone. How often do you find yourself going to the same ol’ restaurant…and even after swearing you won’t get the same sandwich again, after staring blankly at the menu for 10 minutes you order the same damned sandwich again. I’m tired of that…I want to taste all that’s out there. I want to find the perfect burger, the perfect slice of pizza, the perfect breakfast. For me…not for someone else. I’m well aware that my perfect hamburger is not going to be the perfect hamburger for you, but I will let you know when I’ve found mine so that maybe you can see how good it is. As a start, here is a list of my favorites so far.
I have no accolades, no awards, my taste-buds are not that of a supertaster, and in all honestly I can give a damn what anyone else thinks…mainly because you shouldn’t give a damn what I think. This is just my thoughts on my journey to find truly good eats from good people. I would, however, love to hear your thoughts on my thoughts…no matter how agreeing or disagreeing.
One of the biggest joys and pleasures from this has been meeting the people behind the food. The cooks and owners that truly love serving people their grub and making them feel at home. When you can feel at home 1000 miles from it just by the grace from strangers, that’s something special. I want to thank all the wonderful souls who day in and day out take it upon themselves to make our bellies full and our hearts warm. I find it amazing how many great memories in one’s life are associated with food and the cooks that work so hard deserve more admiration.
I hope you enjoy….now eat up!
