What is your planned route? If you don't hit Nawlins, Kansas City, Memphis, Savannah, Miami and many other cities known for their cuisine, than asking for a "top ten" is rediculus! Don't forget Texas, Alabama and parts in between. Darn, your question has no real answer.

If you're going through Kansas City, Arthur Bryant's BBQ is awesome. Make sure you get the "burnt ends".

Where To Eat On The Road - Pitstops Across The US - Good Road Food - Delish.com

but welcome other pointers.

Thanks.

Not to drive traffic away from here but the ultimate road food experts, Jane and Michael Stern, have written books and have a great website devoted to road food.

Thanks for recommending the Dew Drop Inn.

We don't have a planned route yet, although we're inclined to take a southern route.

It seems highly likely that we'll hit some of the cities you mentioned. At least, I hope we do.

Tripadvisor ratings for this restaurant are all over the map.

Maybe the 'burnt ends' are wonderful and some other dishes there aren't?

Or maybe people just have differing opinions. Everything I've had there has been excellent, and lines are usually out the door.

If you don't want opinions here, maybe you should just stick with Trip Advisor.

I'd go with Steve over TA, and I'm a member. Don't trust all you see on TA. And burnt ends are fantastic!
