If your idea of the perfect summer vacation involves tooling around America in search of hidden gem hot dog stands and secret small town diners serving up mind-blowing breakfasts, chances are you're already familiar with Jane and Michael Stern.
The Sterns have been seeking out the best in sleeves-up dining since the '70s, traveling coast to coast and back again, seeking out regional American specialties from fried chicken and lobster rolls to lesser-knowns like hangover-curing New Orleans yakamein and Mennonite-German-Russian bierocks from Kansas. The Sterns' picks can be found on Roadfood, their lively, community driven site full of great banter and off-the-main-road eats.
They've released a revised and expanded edition of Roadfood. This new guide has a whopping 800 Stern-approved eateries that will keep you well fed, entertained, and thankfully faraway from rest stop chains throughout the continental U.S. Whether you're planning a-get-outta-town weekend or a full-blown cross country journey, the new Roadfood is a must-pack for all summer road tripping jaunts.
Thanks to the generous folks over at Clarkson Potter, we are giving away three (3) copies of Roadfood this week. All you have to do is tell us about your favorite Roadfood destination in the comments section below.
Contest will end and comments will close at 12 p.m. ET, Tuesday, May 31, 2011. One entry per community member. Winners are limited to U.S. residents. The standard Serious Eats contest rules apply.
