    I hesitate to recommend the Shack in the Back, in Fairdale, KY, mainly because I want to keep it to myself and those who ride with me. They make you sit ourside under a canopy, with (at last count) 5 home-made sauces for your 'cue. Various items on the menu, including burgoo, and pretty good sweet tea. All served by high school cheerleaders. Terrible place. I guess I'll just have to keep going back there until they get it right.

    Great Food Spots

    This is great !!!

    I have suggested that they put this in the Magazine, maybe do one State/Province a month it would be great, I could visit some of these places while on the road and know what they are like before I get there

    I do fallow Roadfood.com but it is not really related to motorcycle touring type food spots.

    I would like to see and articles on motorcycle food the best camping spots and maybe through in the best roads for each State/ Province.

    There are lots of fabulous places that we miss, I did the Notches Trace last your did not even know about it till I stayed with other touring people and found a great restaurant in Lawrenceburg TN. I think it was the Taste of the Town.

    Keep it up people Maybe we can get to know some of the great spots in North America to travel!

    Thumbs up Great food spots


    OKay you people have it right though look for the Fire, Police or Ambulance for lots of food at a great price, in most cases the food is good although I have known some spot that well you had to know what to ask for or you would get less that good food.

    Bon Voyage Restaurant on Route 132 in Quebec

    I had breakfast here on the way to the Gaspe.

    Very nice food, very well presented, incredibly attractive waitresses, and much local charm. Perhaps the best breakfast along the road I've ever had.

    I don't remember the town, but I'll always remember the restaurant and the pleasant experience I had.

    Quebec is a great place to find a good meal.

    Baker City, OR

    I happened across this bit of heaven returning from the Redmond rally:

    http://barleybrowns.com/home

    Not a great website but the beer was fantastic. Watched some of the food coming out from the kitchen- "WOW!" Had the Reuben- one of the best I've ever had.

    Stayed here:

    Reasonable, great breakfast in the lobby, within stumbling distance of Barley Browns.

    Also make sure to check out http://geisergrand.com/. Nice!!

    Natchez, Mississippi

    The Pig Out Inn in the old part of town by the river. Just a few miles off The Natchez Trace if you are riding it this far south.

    Harbor View Grille, Whitehall, Mi.

    Aside from a great view of White Lake harbor, the food is great. Their clam chowder and the ham/turkey wrap was very filling. Highly recommended. Bikers welcome.
