My good friend and I are planning a cross country road trip from Virginia to the bay area of California. We have about a week to do it, and we are planning to take route 40 and then 101 up the California coast... or maybe possibly an even crazier souther border route that involves a stop off in New Orleans.
I've been looking around on these boards and it's such a tremendous project to sort out all the possible places we could stop to eat, especially since we don't know exactly where we're going.
What I'm hoping is that one of you knows of a book, web site, or blog that deals with roadside eats specifically. I know there has to be something, and I just can't find it.
Also, since I'm here, any not-to-be-missed foodstuffs found in the southern part of this great country that you want to throw out would of course be appreciated.
