I went on a very long solo drive on a very, very long single street last week for an upcoming @racked story. Here's most of what I ate in five and a half days on the road (not pictured: one billion cans of seltzer consumed in car, and one horribly depressing dinner at a Cracker Barrel)
  1. Half chicken with white sauce, deviled eggs, green beans, and banana pudding at Miss Myra's Pit Barbecue just outside of Birmingham

  2. Deep-fried peaches (battered in funnelcake) from a cart parked in a trailer lot in Gadsden, Alabama

  15. Hipster food at a not-very-good-by-any-standard restaurant in Detroit that I won't even name
