    Regional Road Food!

    Tell us about the food you've found or stumbled on while on the road. Let us know what places and food you go out of your way to get back to. Some of you take pictures, too...that would be nice to see as well. Sometimes it's about the journey, sometimes it's about the destination. Heck, sometimes it's about the food!

    Be sure to include the city and state in the post title...that makes it easy to spot something interesting, nearby, or on the way.

    Here's a map that has been compiled over on Facebook showing places that others thought were worth the stop:

    One of the stops on the Ride-2-Q a few years ago.

    Windy Hill BBQ somewhere in NC or TN????? I didn't have a clue where I was as I was led astray by a bunch of crazy riders who left this flatlander in the dust!

    Great trip I remember with fondness.

    That's it for me.
    You're living right.

    Personal Favorite! is: Cheddar's, exit 41, I-75,KY & two in Lexington,KY, one in WV near WV U,new one in Columbia,MO on I-70, maybe more-great food(try chicken tenders,club wraps & more @ very reasonable prices!

    Sonny's BBQ chain runs from FL(the home) up through KY-real BBQ and lots of choices for good sauces,etc.

    Bandana's BBQ in Columbia,MO & other locations too.

    El Rodeo' in Mt Sterling,KY-good tex-mex local place.

    El Torro & Jalapen'o's are my fave Tex-Mex's in Lexington,KY

    Melini's Italian Cucina in Mt Sterling (best one) & Morehead,KY for reasonable food-great pizza,calzones & more!

    P.S. just in from land of overpriced & over rated food in Europe-First home meal back-we had soup beans, jalapeno corn bread, collard greens, home grown corn(neighbor did a late sweet corn crop) & fried potatoes- best meal in a lonnnnnnng time! those people like goose liver, yuk...

    Crystal River, FL. At the mall?!?!?

    Yes, hidden within a dying mall in Crystal River is Seafood Seller and Cafe. Jimmy is the owner of the cafe and two boats that bring his fish fresh. I took 6 friends down from North Georgia for dinner. Yes, I think the shrimp are that good. No complaints from anyone, and one of them was a commercial fisherman for 18 years.

    There are motorcycle owners, and there are motorcycle riders.
    And then there are those of us for whom motorcycling is an essential part of our journey - a way of life, and looking at it.

    I would second Greg's mention of the BBQ Exchange. I've been going there since it opened and never had a bad meal. Their 'cue is very good -- I prefer the pulled pork -- and the sides are excellent.

    On the BBQ front, I can also recommend Allman's BBQ, right down the road from Morton's BMW, where I work. I've been going there literally since the day I bought my first BMW thirty years ago. It's an institution in Fredericksburg, VA, and you'll see everyone from elected officials to biker scum there :-) A couple of pix:

    There are your counter customers...

    And a nice meal...

    And then for dessert, head over to Carl's for some frozen custard...
