Friend & I are making the drive & we'll eat almost anything that can't move fast enough to get away from us. Instead of steak, lobster & steak ... we tend to prefer excellent Mom & Pop places, ethnic places, non-franchises ... places that locals frequent but don't show up on the travel guides. We are primarily looking for places easy to get to enroute.
Just to be specific ... we'll be staying a day or 2 in Phoenix, go up 60 thru Surprise, Morristown, Wickenburg,
up 93 thru Big Sandy, Kingman, Boulder City, Hemenway Pass, Railroad Pass
& finally spend Fri evening, Sat & Sun in Vegas.
Though we will be at a convention at the Mandalay Bay, we'll undoubtedly get down on the Strip.
Thanks for any suggestions. My last time in PHX was w/ folks who never went out to eat. Haven't driven thru Vegas for 30 yrs -- I suspect it might have changed :-)
Thanks ... Lagniappe :-)
