I have had much success using Tripadvisor.com. As there is always extremely positive and/or very negative opinions, I look for a place that has a: lots of reviews, and b: a trend toward mostly positive. I have it on mobile phone as well.

Hasn't failed yet, and I think its more reliable than yelp.com which seems to have more questionable (at least seems to me) reviews.

My wife and I are huge fans of "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives". We were on one episode of the show when it swung thru Texas. Anyway, I'd get a copy of Guy's book and hit a few of those places while you travel. I've known several people who have done that.

experience and food

Naples Florida has a food truck road - I know but the food is great, and so many choices! It's all outdoors. There's a bar at the end so you grab your food and a drink and enjoy. It's in a residential neighborhood - which was strange but great food. Called Celebration of Food I think it was Beta Street.

Quechee Vermont - if you're traveling north - Simon Pearce is a glass blowing place and restaurant. The food is great, doing a farm to table - but I love watching the glass being made and shopping in their store.

Jasper's BBQ, Waco TX. The place certainly doesn't look like much but the people are friendly and the BBQ is awesome!

Last summer we traveled across the country. We found that the Microbrew pubs had the best food.

Food is a very personal thing. Great food is different for everyone, lots on here we’ll definitely try, some on here we’ve been to and won’t return, but here’s some we always recommend:

Larrupin in Trinidad CA. Eclectic menu, farm to table type restaurant. Quiet & unique

Harris Ranch in Coalinga CA. One of the best restaurant steaks we’ve ever had. We use this place as an overnight when traveling up I-5. Other than the steak, the rest of the menu is good but unremarkable.

Baked Alaska in Astoria WA. on the Columbia. Another farm to table type restaurant. Try the Lobster Mac.

Riva Grill in South Lake Tahoe. On the lake, get a table on the patio. Their daily chefs specials never disappoint.

South Beach Fish Market in South Beach OR. this a roadside stand
, picnic tables outside along side the crab pots cooking freshly caught crab.

Oh, one more:

The Hatch Rotisserie and Grill in Paso Robles CA. a small restaurant in a storefront across from the main square. Food is served family style in amounts meant for sharing. The mushrooms were amazing
