i fear that i may get a talking to for this, but can you really have road food on an interstate? two things immediately pop into mind- 1) "feasting on asphalt" pretty much tried to emphasize this point, to find "road food" you have to get off the interstates, and drive the backroads, i mean, can you find brain sandwiches on the interstate (digression- the best chicken fried steak i had in texas was in a restaurant somewhere west of austin and I-10 on a 2 lane highway); 2) i am reminded of charles kuralt's quote- "The interstate highway system is a wonderful thing. It makes it possible to go from coast to coast without seeing anything or meeting anybody." now, i realize that most of us don't have the time to simply traverse and lazily drive the backroads to get to our destination, and i certainly do not mean to be mean on this point. i'm just raising the greater issue of where to find "road food" in this country. (i've told my wife that one thing i would like to do is drive u.s. 50 all the way from sacto to ocean city. . .just to do it, you know?) all that being said, you can always pop on in to pittsburgh and sample their cuisine (pierogies and french fry-topped sammiches, among others).
