I've got a whole rolodex full of these stops but I'll throw out my first couple here:
Jim's is a stop near Blairsville GA right on some of the best twisties in anywhere.
Next up is the Brazenhead Inn in Mingo WV near Snowshoe:
Also right in the heart of some of the best hillbilly twisties on the planet. This place is a very affordable B&B and sets out a pretty nice buffet on occasion.
2012 K1600GT, Vermillion Red (for the epic road trips) (gone but not forgotten)
2013 S1000RR, Granite Gray (for the track)
2014 KLR 650, White/Black (for the TAT)
2016 R1200GS Triple Black (for all of it)
To make my life easier with all these good ideas I have created a google map, visible to the public & editable to anyone who wishes to add their other suggestions.
I have mapped pretty much all those listed in he thread already, of course I only have the locations, not necessarily 'best cheesesteaks' or 'try the ham' but feel free to add those tidbits as well.

Thanks, jlevee! I was just going to comment on how nice it would be if the data were organized like the Tent Space map on ADVRider...then you went and did it!
Of course I'm seeing a culinary desert from Nebraska all the way to the Pacific along the northern route I'm planning on taking this summer!

One of my 'must-stops' when I'm within 100 miles of the place is the Primetime Tavern in Huron, SD. Best steak I've ever had. Monday through Thursday the only thing on the menu is bacon wrapped filet, Friday and Saturday the menu is prime rib. Price for a 6 oz filet was about $7 (incl. baked potato, small salad and roll with butter) and the sizes go up to something like 24 ounces!

'13 K1600GTL Graphite Grey... yet unnamed!

shrimp dumplings and beef noodle soup. The hot soybean milk is good also. Call me first and I'll treat.

The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.
I was at the one (the original?) up on the hill in Tuscaloosa- 15th St? Not too far off the freeway. WOW!
Truly fantastic! It's a dive kind of honky tonk joint, nothing fancy about the place... down home cookin in a down home joint. Some of the best BBQ I've had anywhere, and believe me I've had LOTS of BBQ.
No big selection, just ribs & sausage, MAYBE chicken. A small selection of your typical sides, sweet (or UNsweet) tea, and maybe some beers. I had the ribs and the sausage- both were really really good.
WELL worth a stop if you're in the area. Dreamland has locations around the state, too- but I can only speak for this location. Order some today- heck, apparently you don't even have to GO to Alabama, you can have it delivered!

If you ever get to Old Orchard Beach along the southern coast of Maine you have to get a box of french fries at Pier French Fries. Best I've ever had. Bikers can park along the circle adjacent to Pier French Fries which is right in the middle of town. Old Orchard Beach is a small version of Wildwood, NJ.
Gypsy Cafe, Lincoln, NH
Moat Mountain Smoke House & Brewery, North Conway, NH. Good food, great beer
Cameron, Arizona! The Cameron Trading Post (Navajo) has a dining room in the backside(very nice, Navajo Art on display decorate the dining room walls) of the Post thats serves "Navajo Taco's" to die for. Starve getting there, its worth it! This is near the East entrance to the Grand CanyonNP. A must stop. A very prominent, full of the best high desert VISTA's found anywhere at this locale. Obviously so, with the GCNP so closeby. Number 2 is totally opposite, on the Oregon Coast. Port Orford,Ore. boasts "The Crazy Norwegian", small but worthy seafood shoppe. I love the Halibut and Chips found in this area. They are still there and Ive been absent a few years. NOT much longer, being Salem is a target this Summer. Randy
Some people find a place they like and keep going back to a Know; you can call it loyalty.
Some are drifters and malcontents, experimenters and explorers; they're always looking for a new experience or maybe just bored. When the waitress sakes if I want the usual, it's time to move on.
So how do you pick the places to try. Some of this thread has talked about trucks and ladders in
The parking lot. None of them tried to make any correlation to the main attributes of eating out:
Good Food, Large Portions, Low Prices, and Friendly(and/or pretty) Service. Do any types of vehicles
and the age or condition indicate which attribute is primary? How about the same for motorcycles?
A couple of years ago some people I hungout started talking about a new diner; because of who hey
were, I knew before that I went that it was Size and Service. I now check vehicles against what they
drove as a first guess at what's inside.
