Food Network’s On the Road Summer Sweepstakes

By: Gabriela Rodiles

It's that time of year to pack your bags, pile in the car and head on a road trip. Whether you are cruising up the California coast or driving down Route 66, you can say goodbye to gas station food and drive-through meals. Make every stop delicious this summer with Food Network's On the Road app. Find recommended restaurants and road trip ideas from top shows, like The Best Thing I Ever Ate, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, and more. You can also search Food Network-approved stops by your favorite chefs or nearby locations.

Once you've found your favorite new summer restaurants using the app, enter for your chance to win the On the Road Summer Travel Sweepstakes. Tweet @FoodNetwork sharing a newly discovered restaurant from the On the Road app or recommend something from a guide you enjoyed and use the hashtag #FNSummerTravel. One tweet before August 1 will enter you into the grand-prize drawing of a $500 gift card to the Apple Store. Make sure you're following @FoodNetwork to get updates about the app and search the #FNSummerTravel hashtag to see what other Food Network fans are chatting about. For more details about the Sweepstakes read the Official Rules.

The On the Road app is now available for Android users, as well as in the Apple Store, so everyone can check out the special summer features. If you're in the mood for ice cream, search through the 50 States, 50 Ice Cream Treats section. Craving some down-home barbecue? The FN-Approved BBQ section has you covered with recommendations for the best finger-licking-good dishes. If your road map leads you north along the East Coast, the New England Lobster Tour will guide you to the freshest catch. Take advantage of summer produce with the Farmers' Market Fare section, which will help you discover nearby farm-fresh dining locations.
