Weber's along highway 11 in Orillia, ON . A must stop place for anyone travelling through Orillia.

I always stop at Woody's in Centerville along I-45 between Dallas and Houston. Great BBq, sausage, cheese, and of course the pecan log rolls for the road. This place is so popular that there is one on each side of the highway.

Remember Stuckeys? In the SW, that was about all you had on the long stretches between cities. A whole generation of western kids grew up on hot dogs and pecan logs.

The name "Stuckey's" brings back fond memories!

Every time Dad drove me from Fort Wayne, IN, to St. Louis, MO (for my frequent surgeries at Children's Hospital), we would stay at the Best Western Stuckey's Carriage Inn in Altamont, IL! We stopped there EVERY time on the way down to St. Louis; the restaurant staff and motel staff got to know us very quickly. The family restaurant was wonderful--for its good country home cooking! And the Best Western motel was a great, cheap place to stay--very nice inside and out. Wonderful memories!!



We must have stopped there 20 times at least between 1982-1991, on average 2 or 3 times a year on the way to my surgeries in St. Louis.

As you may or may not know, Stuckey's tried to start their own hotel chain (Stuckey's Carriage Inn), but as the experiment failed, the ONLY survivor was the one at Altamont, IL, which became the Best Western Stuckey's Carriage Inn.

If I ever take a nostalgic road trip someday from my home in Fort Wayne, IN, to St. Louis, MO, I want to stop there again for the night--just as my late Dad and I did so often from those golden years, 1982-1991! Just for nostalgic memory's sake!

For me, I can't call it an official road trip unless I have beef jerkey in the car and a stop or two at Dairy Queen. Lets also not forget Cafe Erotica- there are a few along the highways here in Georgia and Florida. There is one 3 miles down the road from me (right across the street from a Dairy Queen)!

Don,t have to go down South anymore. They are in PA and I think in NJ and NY now also. IN-And-Out is pretty good but they need to come East.Untill then Fuddrucker,s will do.

I agree. Living in Minnesota, I had never seen a Waffle House, only heard of them. Luck had it there was one right next door to our motel in Pensacola. Only fast food place where you can get really full for less than $6 (Hashbrowns scattered all the way...yum)

We actually have 2 in NJ, but no where close to me, so the only time I get to eat there is when I'm in Fla. I do know they have them in PA. to, but I just want them to build one close to me!!!

The best is finding that family run place in some small town, the kind of place locals go to, not the chains. One good sign I found is looking where utility workers (electric, gas) or local construction workers go to eat, easy to tell with their trucks parked out front. If in the south a good BBQ place. Many diners in the Northeast USA. Also good too are a number of family run resturants in the Pennsylvania Dutch region of Pennsylvania.
In my travels in the UK and Ireland, I would often stop at a pub for lunch (and only have one small beer) and enjoy usually homemade Cottage Pie, Steak and Kidney, with chips on the side.

I love any great local places, but let's be honest, it's all about the chains.

1.) In-n-Out (Double Double with cheese Animal Style)

2.) Waffle House. (Scattered. Smothered.)

3.) This one's underrated: Steak and Shake



Let's go Hoyas!

In Texas, it was always nice to stop at the locally owned bbq joint.

Back when I used to go on trips with my grandparents every summer, we'd always stop at non-chain restaraunts all over Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and South Dakota. My grandpa pretty much knew of like, every awesome restaraunt in the whole midwest, it was ridiculous. We could be up in Northern Minnesota in some town I've never heard of and he'd be like "theres a nice restaraunt on county road-whatever- about 2 miles east of here" and we'd somehow end up there and it would be awesome.

awww grandpa...I hope i can be as all-knowing as him when I have grandkids, haha.

Since they closed the locations near me, I try to stop at a Shoney's while on my twice-yearly road trips...the buffet will fill one up for sure!

Sonny's BBQ is also good...especially the all-u-can-eat specials!
