just a littlen disappointed, i had an older version that I liked
Wish it had more recipes in it. Good info, though!
it's great
To begin with, this work is much more than just a cookbook although there are indeed many and varied recipes from both the past and present which were and can be found along this remarkable highway...or what is left of it. That being said though, I found that the history involved, state by state and the many; too many to count, anecdotes recorded by the author to make this work well worth the read if this is in your area of interest.

Now over my lifetime of travel, which began in the late 1940s, there are very few sections of this highway I have not traveled at one time or another...many of the sections I have covered many times. As I read this book I found quite a number of the restraints, dives, greasy spoons and elegant eating establishments to be very familiar and I must admit that it sent me into fits of nostalgia.

The book is broken down (after a wonderful introduction) into state by state chapters staring at the highways source in Illinois and ending in California. The book is loaded with wonderful pictures and photographs and recorded profiles of many of the characters a traveler would encounter over the years. This sort of stuff is absolute gold to me and I enjoyed every word.

Now of course the primary emphasis of the book in on food and the many hundreds of eating establishments which were to be found on this “Mother Highway.” I mentioned above that I as at times overwhelmed with nostalgia as I read but I have to be honest with you...I have a pretty good memory (long term memory I must admit as my short term memory gets worse every year as I sink into my dotage). Route 66 was a two lane highway. Motels were, in the early days, extremely primitive by the standards of today. Cars were NOT air nor were most/any of the restraints and forget a cool motel room...they were small, hot and not at all comfortable by today’s standards. Sections of this highway were absolutely terrifying as speed limits were loosely enforced and the condition of the highway was not always the greatest.

But the food! This work provides the recipes used in many of the eating establishments long this route and indeed there was some very good food to be found and had as you traveled. But I must be honest with you and inform you that some of the eats to be found as you traveled this magnificent road was absolutely wretched. Needless to say, the authors have not examined this aspect of eating your way along Route 66. On the other hand I must admit that even those restraints which were the worse were quite often better than the endless chain fast food joints you now find in endless rows through endless towns. Lets face it; an over or under cooked burger filled with a ton a grease and fries on the side were and still are far superior to any BigMac or other cookie cutter burgers which are about the only thing you can get in many of the towns still standing. Sad. It also should be noted that if you are looking for “health foods,” you probably should look else where other than this work.

The recipes in this book are well done and many of them are quite good and well worth the trouble to prepare.

All in all though this is a great book and I enjoyed every page. This was a library find.

While it does give mouth watering descriptions of dishes served at historic restaraunts, it entices the reader to want to dine at them and not cook. Most of the recipes call for portions that would feed a barracks. While this is certainly understandable for the eateries mentioned in the cookbook, it makes for frustrating conversions into family size portions for the home kitchen.
However, most of the chili recipes can be frozen and are the best you will come across. Not to mention the pies are sinfully good! Ultimately best used as an interesting bit pop-culture history and not as functional cookbook.
This book has some really great recipes from a time past. This book has wonderful dinner fare. Super recipes for cakes, pies, and chili. If you are looking for book that has recipes from the 30s through the 60s, while you yearn for yester year. This is the book to get!

This book is full of wonderful recipes and a lot of interesting information about places along the old Route 66. However, buyers need to be warned that they will have to spend hours making notes about how to find the recipes they want to try because it has the worst index in the history of publishing. Ex: the banana cake recipe on page 110 is indexed under "U" for U Drop Inn Banana Cake. Black bean soup can be found under "L" for La Fonda Black Bean Soup. Buyer beware.
