Will Ride for Food
« on: May 27, 2014, 03:00:40 PM »
OK, start posting up your favorite food stops or food destinations.  Please include a link to Google Maps to help us know exactly where the location of your foodie place is located.


Here's how to do it in Google Maps:

Click on the "link" once you've identified your place on the map (red outline).  Then, copy the URL provided in the yellow highlighted area and paste it in your post.  Be sure to click on the "Short URL" option to make your life a lot easier with doing the copy/paste.

Feel free to add as much or little detail about the place you're posting about.  Please, at the least, describe what's so good at the location that would keep you going back.

Here are some places I love to stop for food:


Pik N Pig near Carthage, NC.  This is the best North Carolina style BBQ I've had and it serves the best brisket I've had in North Carolina.  It's located on a small private airstrip.  Small aircraft pilots fly in and out of this place out all day long just to get some Q.

Huge fan of Le Shio sushi place here in Wilmington. Everything is incredibly fresh, and they have good turnover of the fish because they're busy, yet efficient. Nothing has time to sit around and get old.

And what can I say...? I really did enjoy the old ST.N trips up to Denny's Pub for the burgers and riding in the area and hanging out...  :shrug: I always thought the burgers were good enough and the place had enough kitsch to make it worth the ride up there each year.

Shiloh General Store for homemade donuts.  They only serve them on Saturday mornings.  Second to Voodoo Donuts in Portland, these are wonderful donuts.

In keeping with the theme that it's not too far to go to get the best...
The best pizza in my long, and extensive search is:
Sunshine Pizzeria and Restorante.
115 Via G. Garibaldi, Abruzzo, Italy.
Handmade, wood fired, paper-thin crusted nirvana. Try the diavolo!

If you're driving through CHicago and like BBQ, there are two places to go depending on what you like:

Smoque - best brisket ever. Everything else is very good to good, but the brisket is simply the. best. ever. in. the. country. period. (and yes, I've eaten BBQ all over the country and this is easily the best brisket, from Texas to Memphis to the Caolinas, to Georgia, to Alabama, and everywhere else).

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Smoque+BBQ/@41.950105,-87.727552,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x880fcdb09bae970d:0x13270b9006e774cf

The SMokedaddy - best pulled pork in the city (not the country) but really damn good.  Again, everything else is very good to good, but the reason to go here given the # of BBQ places in Chicago is the pulled pork.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/The+Smoke+Daddy/@41.903429,-87.672707,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x880fd2ced590f709:0xf2ce89b2c90b420f

Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation.

My local favorite.  Do not order yours with Death Paste if you are riding the next day.

Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation.

Giusti's Place - Walnut Grove, CA just off Thorton Rd on the banks of Snodgrass Slough.

The smoked brisket French dip can convert a vegan, and don't get me started on the hot link sandwich.   :drool: :drif:

Giusti's is about a 30 minute ride south along the Sacramento River. Or you can be a poseur and take Interstate 5 south and cut over to the river in mere minutes. But then you'd also miss checking out Tony's Taco Truck at the Paintersville Bridge.

And a bit of a review:  These guys make their own tortillas. And the tortillas were awesome. The insides, not so much. I also don't know why they ask me if I want hot salsa (I do, I really do) if they're going to protect my uber-pale self by making the blandest burrito ever.

Mmhmm...that is one tasty burger. (I saw a Kahuna burger on the menu and heard Samuel L Jackson in my head.) I will try them next time I am on the bike in the area.

Again, pale me ain't gettin' no spice.  Workmanlike, much rice.

To get a feel for the area, the "Toxic Fire" headline used the example of a hash oil lab blowing up to describe what sort of fire the first responders were training for.  These were terms EVERYONE up here would have a feel for.  For those of you from the clean world, imagine stoners working with ether.  "Hey man, let's light one!"  <BOOM> "Oops!"

Of the Top 64, Taqueria CanCun is in my prior postings, and deservedly so:

http://fivethirtyeight.com/burrito/#brackets-view

Now I need an excuse for a business trip to SF so I can both ride Hwy 1 and spend a week of lunches and dinners in the Mission.

Sadly, most of my clients are overseas these days.

I was perusing through the thread and I have determined that Mel doesn't have a stove at home. And obviously no way to keep or prepare any food at home.

Huh.  I call it "the stove" as well.  Where does the term "range" come from?  Just curious.
