Synopsis:

Part memoir, part guidebook, part cookbook, and all parts hilarious, Two for the Road shares the lessons the Sterns have learned during thirty years of sampling regional fare on Americas back roads. If you want a great restaurant, forget the Yellow Pages, ask the local cop—and avoid anything that calls itself “world famous.” Sure bets are places with a giant plastic pig on the roof or pictures of Jesus on the walls. As the Sterns search for the Holy Grail of barbecue, they relate achingly funny adventures and misadventures, and what emerges is a big picture of America, revealing exotic eating customs that flourish right under our noses.

Synopsis:

In this laugh-out-loud culinary memoir, the Sterns tell the story behind their lifelong road trip, offering a front-seat view of smoke pits, boardinghouse-style restaurants, and cafes where customized mugs for regulars hang on pegboards.
