4. New Eateries


In our own version of feasting on asphalt, we rolled into Gualala, California, with barely enough time to stop the kitchen at Bones Roadhouse from closing. Sean Alexander, MO’s resident BBQ authoritarian, proclaimed it some of the best he’s ever sampled. It’s always a gem to find a delicious, friendly eatery inhabited by colorful locals. It can be hit or miss when it comes to an unknown restaurant, but discovering that perfect blend of good food and good times is usually worth the effort.
