Top 10 (or so) roadfood in the US?

I'm looking for a list of the Top 10 (or 20 or 30....) roadfood joints in the US.

I've found:

Top 41 road food spots in the West - SFGate

and

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

but welcome other pointers.

Thanks.

First things first. Welcome to DC. A fun place to be.

Is this for an assignment? Or are you planning a cross country trip?

Addie, thanks for the reply and the kind welcome.

A buddy and I are (tentatively) planning a cross-country trip next year, and we have not settled on an itinerary yet. We love food, so roadfood joints could influence our direction.

Since we have members located all over this country, I am sure you will get some interesting replies. I don't travel or drive so I am of no help to you. Good luck. Be patient. Most folks here are on line at night.

Check out the Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives page on the Food Network site. There should be a list of visited spots from the TV show.

Andy, there have been, I think, over 200 DDDs covered on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives 13 episodes times 14 seasons [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ives_episodes]) and, according to Guy F, they are all great.

I'm trying to narrow down the list to distinguish between the good and truly outstanding.

Thanks.

So you're saying it's going to be a short tip?

Bring me some deli when you get to Cali. We don't have much in the way of that here.

We do have great Mexican food though. We have a chain called Super Taqueria that is just that.Authentic taqueria! Not fancy at all, but cheap and good burritos and tacos.

If you make it to San Jose you should eat at House of Pizza.They have been in business since 1950 and make great pizza along with Steak sandwiches to die for. Full bar and a crowd of regulars. Again, Not fancy but a San Jose institution.
