If I stop for fuel I try to find a local and ask about where is a great a place that the locals eat at. Most cases it works. I usually like to find the out of the way places that locals eat as they are the best local cuisine. I especially like southern style foods.
Louisiana, Texas, Alabama, Georgia I find the best eats.

On the way to Gettysburg, well depending on the way you go, you may have to pass through Littlestown, PA, they have a place called Dutterers, they have the BEST BROASTED chicken you will ever eat!

A big screaming match started with the old man and the customer with the CC. It ended with the old man telling the CC customer in broken English, "You just leave now round eye, you no come back!".

I understand the merchant preferring cash totally. I got it, always pay cash at mom & pop stores. But I still LMAO when I think about it.
A lot of the family owned places here in NC, BBQ in particular, are cash only. Threw me for a loop when we fist moved here in the early 90's as I hardly ever carried cash.

Maybe this format

>Name: Bar B-Q Man
>Best Menu Item: 1st Brisket!! 2nd Ribs!!, 3rd Sausage
>Price Range: $10-15per person
>Parking: Can Accomidate most vehicles and truck/trailer combos under 50' total ft.
>Comments: Love their Brisket either lean or marbled! Their BBQ Sauce is amazing! Great Customer Service!
Hilton Head Island, SC
American, Italian
Frankie Bones
Braised Beef Ribs or Weinerschnitzel
$20-$25/person
Cars only - very crowded
Service can be a little spotty. Avoid the house wines. Terrific food.

Destin, FL - Fudpuckers (super touristy, terribly loud and fun, real alligators you can feed, worth a visit)

Destin, FL - Black Pearl (great seafood, even better view)

Ft. Walton Beach, FL - The Crab Shack (the place to go for authentic crab, great views)

Pensacola, FL - McGuires Irish Pub (live Irish music every night at 9, lots of beers to try, eat off the Irish fare menu. Having been to Ireland, the Irish fare menu is pretty accurate to traditional pub food.)

Fayetteville, NC - Fuller's Buffet (amazing southern cooking, great prices, try the pecan pie!)

Also, if you've never heard of the Yelp! app, download it! It gives reviews, prices, menus, addresses, hours, etc. and you can search by food type or services like hair salons, etc. Lifesaver!
you have literally hit the best spots in these areas.
here is a link to my grandson's first visit at Lambert's

don't forget that Joe Patti's in Pensacola sells crabs etc already boiled.......

Another Texas Coastal Bender here. A can't-miss favorite of mine in Corpus is Andy's Kitchen. The place has been around forever, rumor is General Santa Anna stopped there for coffee and a muffin on his way west. Regardless, the place is always spotless and makes great old-school breakfast and lunch.
Speaking of breakfast, go past the tourist areas and hunt down some family-owned Mexican joints and you'll find out why Corpus is considered the breakfast taco capital of the world.
I'm with the OP as far as dinner, BBQ is always a no-brainer. I grew up in the Midwest so I've always liked pork in my pit, but beef rules in Texas. You can still get a decent rack of baby backs and pulled pork though, they're finally coming around down here!
Great...now I'm hungry.

The best local seafood restaurant, is at Smithville, NJ. It is the Oyster Creek Restaurant. It is on the water and has both seafood and steaks.

Since you mentioned breakfast, then another hotspot in corpus is Atomic Omelette. Try their Corn flake French Toast or the Atomic Omelette.

Well all this talk about eateries is making me hungry.
If you are planning a trip to Bar Harbor ME or Maritime Canada a must stop is Dysart's Truck Stop in Hermon, ME...I95 exit 180....easy on & off. Plenty of parking for your TT, fuel, service and one of the best dinners you will eat at. All home cooking, local produce, fresh seafood/meat, and the bake beans are not from a can. If you like desert...eat desert first! If you plan a stop over check out the Pumpkin Patch just a few miles from Dysart's

Happy Trails
