Eating Our Way Across Half The Country.

We basically ate our way across half the country on our road trip from New Mexico to North Carolina.  At each meal we’d discuss our next destination and where we’d eat lunch or dinner.  These are our fave stops from NM to NC:

Emma was with us when we had lunch at The Range on Route 66 in Bonarillo, NM.  ‘Cuz ya’ll gotta experience a Route 66 Diner. On our way out, I spied the pastry case. (Screeching sound of brakes). I have a problem walking past these oh-too-tempting glass cases filled with scrumptious, delicately prepared offerings.  It’s the Brit in me.

And so, I reasoned, it’s always wise to pack a snack between meals, and I chose a large, steamy, iced, fresh-from-the-oven cinnamon bun for us to share later on.  We split it three gooey ways before we left the parking lot. No.Willpower.Whatsoever.

Lucille’s, Weatherford, OK, a Route 66 Diner.  Cool Mother Road decor and one of best hamburgers I’ve ever eaten with a fun server on the side.

Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken, Memphis, Tennessee.  Oh, were we happy to be back in Memphis and stop for lunch here. Yup, best fried chicken ever.  Cooked when you order, very little coating, not greasy, just mind-blowingly fresh and good.  The never-ending lineup tells the story.

We met this beautiful lady while we lined up outside.  She and Zuma became fast friends.  Her name is Kat Riggins, she’s a blues singer and was traveling with her agents.  We stalked her looked her up on youtube and she’s really talented.
