Since I have a friend or two who like to see the country by driving, here's a site worth checking out beforehand (or even for your local homecooked options -- I like the MA options!):

What is roadfood? Great regional meals along highways, in small towns and in city neighborhoods. It is sleeves-up food made by cooks, bakers, pitmasters, and sandwich-makers who are America’s culinary folk artists. Roadfood is almost always informal and inexpensive; and the best Roadfood restaurants are colorful places enjoyed by locals (and savvy travelers) for their character as well as their menu.

Roadfood's a classic, but I'm rarely near the net when I really need to find a good restaurant in, say, Elko, NV. I see there's a new print edition coming soon.

For their wedding, my sister and brother-in-law gave me (?!) a pair of guides to vegetarian restaurants and health food stores around the country, complete with directions from the nearest freeway. They suffer from the high attrition rate for vegetarian restaurants, but they've shown me some great places.

Nice to have such guides. And helpful family! (I should've realised you'd already know about Roadfood. Now if it were me, with my entirely food-focused travel ethic, I'd plot the route by restaurants. And then photograph them.)
