Shepp’s Drive-In

As I sped across the country, I was once again astonished at the dilapidation of small-town America. But there is beauty, too in the recollection of a bygone era. I have no idea where I took this photo, but I think it was somewhere in Colorado.

Pere Antoine’s

This is Pere Antoine Restaurant at the corner of Royal and St. Ann in the ever beautiful French Quarter of New Orleans.

Delta Restaurant

Unfortunately this place was closing up when I visited, but it sure looks like the kind of place that makes some serious food.

Route 66 Café

I liked this old gas pump out on Route 66 in Seligman, Arizona.

I love this sign! This is the Thunderbird Restaurant in Mt. Carmel Junction in Utah.

Middlegate Station

This is Middlegate Station in Fallon, Nevada. It served as a stage and freight station for many years and was also a Pony Express stop in its time. Today it is one of the last true roadhouses in the country. Stop in for a drink if you’re ever driving down Nevada Route 50, you’ll be glad you did.

Pink’s

Pink’s is one of the most iconic hot-dog restaurants in the country, and certainly the most famous west of the Mississippi. Founded by Paul and Betty Pink in Hollywood, California in 1939, I have never been here when there wasn’t a line. It is definitely worth the stop.

Fat Matt’s Rib Shack

Quite simply put, this place has the best ribs I have ever eaten. Others have come close, but every time I go back to Fat Matt’s in Atlanta, Georgia I think ‘nope, still the best’. A cold beer and good music don’t hurt either.
