Road trip food
– it’s what makes those long drives bearable. But not just any food will do. It needs to be epic, worth the stop in both ambiance and flavor.
In our years of criss-crossing the US we’ve found a few restaurants that are worth a return visit – or even a detour from our route!
This article, written for The Scenic Route at GoRVing.com features the best road trip food we’ve found. Anyone ready to hit the road?
One of the benefits of RVing, especially for families, is the kitchen/campfire combination. Besides the convenience of putting together a meal in the middle of nowhere, you’re more likely to eat healthier foods and save money over dining out.
But, no matter how well you eat in that RV, there are some restaurants across the US that are worth the stop, or even the detour and extra driving to get there. Bon appétit!
Pops on Route 66: Best known for their large selection of sodas, sparkling waters, and other chilled beverages (there are over 700 to choose from!) Pops’ kitchen turns out tasty meals, while the shake shop blends thick creamy concoctions, and creates floats from the nearly endless supply of sodas.
Diner food with a healthy mix of Southern comfort means your meal is made to order and large enough to share, which I recommend if you want to get dessert. And if the daily special is the Buffalo Burger, consider your choice made. Don’t leave without perusing the soda selection and buying a 6 pack (or a case, no one is judging) for the road.
