I grew up in South Texas, so cook and eat Tex-Mex. This is my favorite place for "good food at a good price."

>Restaurant Location: South Texas
>Food Type: Quick, Inexpensive Tex-Mex
>Name: Taco Cabana
>Best Menu Item: Fajita Dinner or Cabana Bowl
>Price Range: $5-$9.95
>Parking: Most have large parking lots which can accommodate motor homes and trailers. Exceptions exist on city streets.
>Comments: It resembles a fast food place and there are many locations, but they do serve alcohol and Mexican sodas. Selections are limited, but in my experience, the food is authentic and always good no matter which one I visit. Tortillas and other food stuffs are prepared on site and not shipped frozen from a main supplier.

X2 on Lambert's!! We hit it on the way home from Goshen.

When in Bandera, Texas try Busbee's Bar-B-Q. This pic is from lunch today!

The best Rv campground restaurant I ever ate in was in Charlemont Ma. on RT 2. The Mohawk Campground and Restaurant. Home cooking and everything is fresh. My MIL ate there once and said she had eaten in 5 star restaurants that weren't as good.

Sweet rolls anyone? London KENTUCKY is home to a Flowers Bakery Outlet. Up the hill behind the Outlet they make 80,000 (yes, eighty thousand) cinnamon rolls per hour, daily! $1.50 per bag. 12 small or 6 large. They are usually still warm! I should weigh 600 pounds.
If you are in Brooksville FL. try the FLORIDA CRACKER CAFE on Jefferson St. My favorite is Shrimp and Grits for breakfast. Good burgers, fish tacos, heck it's all good.
Travel safe

Love that place...
I do not think it is owned by the old man anymore. The old man was old school.

Went once with co-workers for lunch and when we were in a long line to pay, saw the old man look past the customer with the credit card out, and ask the customer behind him to step up next as he had cash in hand.

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.

Don't know if that's the same place. I always saw a rather regal looking older lady who ran the place with the precision of a Prussian Drill Sargent.

It's a buffet, and you NEVER see the food bins less than half full. She has a gooseneck microphone by the cash register that she barks orders to the kitchen on what's running low (and by low, I mean "half empty") . You know how you got to do some 'creative ladling' at the broccoli and beef to get mostly beef? Pah! They put out a tray of what they call "house beef". Not sure what its made of and seasoned with, and I don't care.

What always struck me was that no matter how many times I went, or how busy they were, I never once had to wait for a table. They have a veritable army of bussers and wait staff. It's no exaggeration to say that before you can walk up to the counter and pay, they will have your table cleared, reset and have the next customer seated with his drink order on the way.

Damn. Now I am craving some good Chinese food, and they are too far away to hit at lunch.

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 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.

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.

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

Faces In The Crowd: September 2015
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
