America is the land of the free, and it’s also the land of fab food! There’s a smorgasbord of opportunities for foodie fans to put their peddle to the metal and head off across the country on a road tip that’s filled with decadent delights.
Take a look at some of the places you need to pay a visit to if you enjoy hitting the road in search of the finest food in the good old U S of A.
Franklin Barbeque- Austin, Texas
If the taste of smoked brisket gets your mouth watering, then you need to head on down to Franklins.
This smokehouse is world famous and long lines of hungry people form early on in the day, waiting for Franklin to dish up his famous brisket, pulled pork and other smoky meats. Get there early so you don’t miss out!
Bacchanal Buffet- Caesers Palace- Las Vegas Nevada
So, its not just casinos and fountains that Vegas is famous for. It’s also buffets. The Bacchanal Buffet at Caesers Palace is often considered the very best in the world.
You’ll find everything from fresh street food like tacos to a carving station, a rotation of salads, seafood and smoked meat, and a dessert station that’s worth the trip alone.
If you want to play while you’re eating, you can always check out River Belle casino on your mobile and get the best of both worlds too.
Bragg Farm- East Montpelier Vermont
If its maple syrup that your after then you need to head on down to Bragg Farm. You can see a sugar house in full swing here and the 8th generation ‘maple mavens’ do it al the old fashioned way, collecting sap in buckets and then made into syrup over hot fires. Maple syrup waffles and pancakes have never been as good as when they are fresh from the farm.
Woodberry Kitchen – Chesapeake Bay
If you’re hitting the road in Summer then you need to consider taking a trip to Chesapeake Bay, because it’s blue crab season baby!
You’ll find a number of places to munch down on these tasty crustaceans, but Woodberry Kitchen is a place that’s famous for its open sandwich with flash fried soft shell crabs.
It’s a seafood fiesta that boasts crabs that have been given the molten treatment, and many say that once you’ve had them this way, you’ll never want them any other way again.
Chef Spike Gjerde coats them in corn flour and then deep fries them, and this adds the perfect crunch and texture to the soft, sweet meat inside.
We’re not going to mention a specific spot in Napa Valley as there are so many, but if you are a foodie and love good wine, then this is the place to go.
There are more than 450 wineries in the valley and there are a lot of places that serve up world-class cuisine to match their delicious wines.
Even if wine isn’t your thing, the rolling vineyards, beautiful views and super eateries will certainly offer you a tantalizing experience.
