I just dropped a note in there making sure everybody knows that RideToEat.com covers Canada too! Just not very well yet. We need Canadian riders to visit and enter their favorite spots.

Western New York! Angola NY. Several really cool beach bars. My two favorites are The South shore Inn and Castaways further west is SunSet Bay. Two great spots side by side. Cabana Sam's and next door is Testosarone and Hard Body heaven SunSet Bay beach club , any sunny Sat. or Sunday is a blast June-August.

Evengola State Park is very close by for Camping. Breakfast at Aunt Millies in Irving NY.......

Then there is Lake Chitauqua Mayville NY. The Dunkirk-Fredonia area. Collage town(Fredonia) hit Rocko's in Fredonia killer Linqunni with Red clam sauce.

Oh man, just love this ride to eat thing.

If any one is heading North to Western NY and you pass through Pittsburgh. got hit Primantti's for a "Sammich"


Cheers!

Question

Folks:

I'm looking for help getting the RideToEat.com website data to where it should be.

A few months ago, when only 23% of the data was from "Rated" destinations, I asked for help on a few forums. I got lots of great input and rocketed up to 50% in a very few weeks... but then things slowed down.

We have crept up to 55%, but further progress is glacial. Instead of a dozen or so entries a day, I'm lucky to get that many in a week.

So if you can spend a few moments to help me closer to the goal of 100% rated destinations at RideToEat.com, I'd be grateful!

It's pretty easy. Open RideToEat.com, scroll down to a state that you are familiar with, and look for entries that have a comment which says "unreviewed". Those are the entries that are on the chopping block. If you see one that you believe should stay on the list, just click on the little pencil icon next to the restaurant name, and enter your comment and ratings. Simple.

And if you know of a place in your state that is a great Ride To Eat destination but isn't on the list, just click the ADD button and share it with the rest of us.

Thanks!

There's a couple nearby that are unreviewed that I'll check out for myself.

It's a great site you have, don't be discouraged, just keep reminding folks.

I'd like to help but can't get Connecticut to open. Never mind. I was trying to open the map, which says there is an error, but found where you can review places.

FYI, "The Pace" podcast folks interviewed me about RideToEat.com on this weeks episode. You can find it here: http://thepacepodcast.com/archives/387

It starts at the 3 minute mark. You can listen to it directly from that link, or get it from itunes, or from the feedburner at http://feeds.feedburner.com/ThePacePodcast.

This will satisfy all of your burning curiosity about RideToEat.com. And let you know where to get some really cool thong underwear

The Pace is a weekly podcast covering general interest motorcycling stuff.

Cheers!

And let's not forget River Run Restaurant in Plainfield, Vermont

A breakfast of Catfish, homes, grits with jalapenos and cheese, and good coffee is something not to be missed!

I'm a ride to eat biker. There are so many places that are not on your list that I like I hardly know where to start? I'm not a GPSer so do you need addresses or is the town enough? Just a few favorites of many....Lamberts in Sikeston Mo......Arts Tavern in Glen Arbor Mich.....Rudy BBQ in Leon Springs Tx.....All are by great riding roads. I'll get back with some more after I check my riders log book. Great thread. Thanks

Yeah... lots of holes in the map. I depend on riders for the data... so it well take time but I have faith that eventually all the good spots will hit the list.

No problem if you don't have coordinates. I can get those - though it is easier if you get me a good street address and city.

Lamberts is already listed. See http://ridetoeat.com/#235. For restaurants that have more than one location, I prefer to have just one entry, and make note of the other locations in the comment section. In the case of places like Lamberts, that aren't really like a big chain, I'm willing to make an exception so if you submit a review for the Sikeston site I'll give it its own entry.

I look forward to getting your reviews!

Arts Tavern On 6487 Western Av. in Glen Arbor Michigan. Small local place thats full of FIBs on summer weekends. Everything on the menu is good. Just a couple blocks over is Boones which is a little fancier and pricer and has music on the patio most summer nights. These both are on my favorite Michigan road, M 22. Further south in Pentwater is the Brown Bear at 278 S. Hancock St. They have the best burgers I've ever had. A few miles north of Pentwater is Bortell's Fisheries at 5528 S. Lakeshore Dr. All kinds of fried and smoked fish. Same family owned for over 100 years. Bonus points for the county park across the street on Lake Michigan. Down the road a couple of miles is the water intake plant with views high above the big lake. All the above are on curvy roads near Lk. Mich. Killer lake views abound along with the local whitetails. Be wary.

Got it. Just Arts? They are all great and so are the roads. Bortells has great fish. I'm riding up there tomorrow for some white fish. Then down to Stony Lake to watch my friends kite sail on the big lake. I've been to quite a few places in the Texas Hill country too. Coopers in Llano gets rave reviews but I think its just average. The riding experience nearby must make the food taste better? If anyone goes to Coopers get it to go because there is a nice park just down the street on the river.
