Ride to Eat destinations

Sorry if this is not the right forum to post this... couldn't really see one that fit.

Anyway, I put together a GPS/Mapping friendly Ride-To-Eat list on a website called ridetoeat.com

The main features are that there are hot links to google maps for each restaurant, and there are links that allow you to export the data for use in your GPS or mapping program.

It's fairly well populated, but there are big holes. The site depends on entries from riders. It only takes a moment to add an entry.

Some woefully under-represented states out there still. If you know of a good RTE spot in North Dakota... how about entering it at http://ridetoeat.com/rte/add ?

Current state/entry count:

United States
Alaska (2) Alabama (26) Arkansas (19) Arizona (24) California (91) Colorado (27)
Connecticut (26) District Of Columbia (1) Deleware (2) Florida (51) Georgia (42) Hawaii (1)
Idaho (4) Illinois (29) Iowa (7) Indiana (34) Kansas (13) Kentucky (13)
Louisiana (15) Maine (18) Maryland (19) Massachusetts (28) Michigan (8) Minnesota (18)
Missouri (24) Mississippi (19) Montana (9) North Carolina (39) North Dakota(0) Nebraska (6)
Nevada (4) New Hampshire (3) New Jersey (11) New Mexico (21) New York (13) Ohio (17)
Oklahoma (16) Oregon (17) Pennsylvania (24) Rhode Island (4) South Carolina (27) South Dakota (2)
Tennessee (49) Texas (72) Utah (20) Virginia (21) Vermont (3) Washington (18)
Wisconsin (10) West Virginia (12) Wyoming (2) Puerto Rico(0) Guam(0) US Virgin Islands(0)
Canada
Alberta (2) British Columbia (4) Newfoundland/Labrador (1) Ontario (2) Quebec (1) Yukon Territories (1)
And beyond...
Great Britain (1) Mexico (5)

Well, a few people added some... but man, still nothing for:

Cafe Veloce in Kirkland WA?
Zeitgeist in San Francisco?
The Root Beer Saloon in Alto Pass IL?
ANYPLACE in the Black Hills, Wyoming or North Dakota?

If I don't have any of those, I know there are LOTS more great Ride to Eat destinations I am missing...

Just suggesting them here doesn't work... you have to go to http://ridetoeat.com/rte/add and enter the information... it's as painless as I could make it!

I could list several nice places in Indiana, but I don't do longitude and latitude

No problem... if you include a good address it's easy for me to fill in the Lat/Lon data.

Cafe Veloce

Has average Italian food, its two good points are the 10%
discount for arriving by motorcycle and the display of single cylinder Italian race bikes .

I wanted to post some good places but my computer takes forever to load the front page and then freezes if I toggle anything. ???

Several for Idaho and MT. One in Mexico and two in Baja

I could put them here.

Walat's Ham Sammy


Walat's. At the summit on Rt 30 a few miles east of Ligonier, PA. Bring tuperware and you'll have enough ham for your omelets for the next week. Google map it with satellite view ( 241 Lincoln Hwy, Boswell, PA 15531) you'll see its somewhat of a biker bar.

Hmmm.. what browser do you use? It is pretty big, but other than that I haven't heard of any problems with it lately.

You can go straight to the add function at http://ridetoeat.com/rte/add and avoid loading the main page.

I look forward to your entries!

Still very slow, but I entered 8.

Rancheria, Yukon
Cameron Trading Post, near Grand Canyon
Nano Fongs, Baja Sur
Rancho El Coyote, BC Mexico
The Spragpole, ID
All Seasons Cafe, BC Canada
Woodbury Resort and Marina, BC Canada
ME and Lou's Diner, ID

I have a few more if these are getting thru. These are true destination eateries. Good food, good roads. By the time you reach these locations you will have ridden some good roads.

Yep, they got through and are now loaded on the site.

It took me some time to find the Lat/Lon data for some of those! If you are adding more, and it's a location that doesn't have a traditional street address, the Lat/Lon data would be a great help if you have it handy.

Thanks for the entries. I Don't know why it would be running slow for you... the main home page has a lot of data, but none of the other pages do.
