There is no comparison. Roadfood is the mother of all drive n’ eat sites, including Roadfoodie. Roadfood is now searchable, with fabulous interactive maps, and Roadfoodie urges all enthusiastic drivers to become a subscription-paying “Roadfood Insider.” (There is absolutely no relationship between the two, btw.)
Roadfoodie is honored even to be mentioned in the same sentence with Roadfood (yes, it is me–or I–that is doing the mentioning). Roadfoodie began her journey looking to Roadfood for recommendations, and had some grand ol’ times along the way (see the pig-sickle, and dry-rubbed ribs at Charlie Vergos’ Rendezvous). But after seven trips across, Roadfoodie began to tire of just eating, and started to lean towards dining. Now, Roadfoodie is more likely to consult with the local chapter of Slow Food for dining direction. And Roadfoodie always makes sure there is a bar, or at least a small wine list.
Roadfood is partial to pie. Roadfoodie prefers pig.
Roadfood doesn’t mind so much where the ingredients come from, as long as they are tasty. Roadfoodie always tries to search out the local.
Roadfood concentrates on the food. Roadfoodie meets people, examines the zeitgeist, and listens to location-appropriate music.
Roadfood likes a Dr Pepper. Roadfoodie likes a cocktail. Sometimes two.
