Okay, a friend and I are flying to Little Rock or Memphis to pick up a truck we bought and drive back to Oregon. What route should be take for the best food? Here are a couple thoughts:
1) Go into Memphis. Eat Q. Drive up to Kansas City. Eat Q. Then Kansas, Wyoming, Idaho, and home. The bad part would be the last couple states.
2) Go into Memphis. Eat Q. Drive through Arkansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico with a side trip through Santa Fe for Mexican. Then up through Colorado or Utah, Idaho, and home.
3) Little Rock to Dallas to Santa Fe and on up. Could even go through Arizona. Focus would be on Q and Mexican.
Any must eats along any of these routes would be greatly appreciated. I have the Sterns's Roadfood, which has been a help in the past, and will be trying to get some specific recs in the regions, too.
