They may not be the absolute best food in Alaska (per above, that distinction is owned by the Perch), but they are pretty darn good, with an interesting menu, and the cabins are a great place to bed down in as well.

I'll get things rolling again by adding the Crosswinds Restaurant at the municipal airport in Payson, AZ. As I understand it, this is a pretty regular breakfast stop of the Arizona Rim Riders. We had the pleasure when we road with them on Sunday.
The service was down home friendly and the breakfast was delicious--biscuits and gravy with real sausage gravy and some of the best eggs benedict I've tasted. The omelets looked great and the home fries were good too. They don't just serve breakfast and I hear that they cater too. There are tables that can be put together family style and theres a big picture window that looks out on the planes and the view beyond.

Don Perico's is my favorite Mexican Restaurant in California. Thankfully, it is located far enough away from Sacramento that I can only stop there every year or so, because I'm sure the calories last from one visit to the next. It is located just south of the intersection of Hwys 5 and 99, at the foot of the Grapevine, next to a Ramada Inn. They do a great job on their Red Snapper and Shrimp dishes, as well as the more traditional Mexican fare.

While on our way to the 49'er rally in Aburn we reserved tent cabins for one night. The restaurant opened at 5:00 pm and the 3 of us sat down for dinner. Everything seemed a little pricey so the 3 of us split an 18" pizza, $18.95 and well worth it.
It was huge! And all 3 of us agreed that no where could you find a better pizza. Without a doubt the best pizza I have ever eaten in 53 years.

We spent a very interesting and yummy afternoon in Tip Top Meats , European Delicatessen in Carlsbad, CA in North Coastal San Diego County. This is an Old World style Butcher Shop and huge European Deli. There are large selections of cheeses, wursts, smoked and fresh meats, breads and all manner of European packaged foods. They have spätzle, knödel, jams, sauces, candy, wines, international and domestic beers, etc.
To top it all off, there's a cafe with a full menu, a tempting pastry case and great prices. For example, from the breakfast menu;
Big John's Breakfast - $5.98
3 eggs any style, home fried potatoes and all of our delicious smokehouse bacon,pork link sausage, bratwurst or ham you can eat
They're open all day. You'll find them if you take Palomar Airport Road, east off of I-5. Take the first right (Paseo del Norte), go about a block and you'll see it on the left.
This would make a great combo trip if you include a visit to the Carlsbad Flower Fields

Do you love real, old fashioned soda fountain fare? Try Miner's Diner in Julian, CA. Get real malts. the kind that are served in a glass with the remainder in the metal mixing can, on the side--two malts in one. Sundaes, phosphates and sodas like the ones you had as a kid (well, at least if you're over 40 ) Yummy stuff!!
Deli and Soda Fountain. Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. Sunday-Thursday 8-6, Friday and Saturday 8-8. Oldest marble topped Soda Fountain in San Diego County. This was the Julian Drug Store. Now that is next door and more room is given for the Soda Fountain. Burgers, sandwiches, soda fountain. The food is OK but the desserts from the old fashion Soda Fountain are not to be missed.
This place is on the corner of Main and Washington just as you enter Julian from Santa Ysabel on Hwy 78/79. Turn right, park and walk across the street.
The riding to get there and in the surrounding area is almost as sweet as the desserts!

This isn't a stop and dash meal but if you're overnighting in the Mendocino, Ca area it is a great place to eat.
Reservations are mandatory
as there are only 7 tables. They can only serve 20 persons at a time and there are 2 sittings -5:30pm and 8pm. It is a variation on a prix fixe meal. They have a number of entrees and the prices vary for each. But you get 5 (yes, 5) courses for your money. My wife and I ate for just over $75, including a glass of wine. That's not bad in a fairly expensive tourist area.

Jocko's portions are famously large.

Pie Town isn't very big; in fact, it's pretty darn small. The Café is on US 60, on the south side of the road. Very easy to find. Pies are all home made, change daily, and look pretty good. I had the Triple Berry pie, which was tart and very tasty. I was too full to have it a la mode, since I had a very good chicken salad sandwich. Prices are reasonable, and everything looked great.
Pie Town does not have a gas station. I mistakenly thought that they did, and arrived with very little fuel. Fortunately, Mike, the owner of the café, is a rider, and keeps a few gallons of gas in his Hog Pen out back to sell to the occasional needy rider.
If you're passing through the area, Pie Town Daily Pie Café is definitely worth the stop. Next time, I'll be sure to leave room for the ice cream.

Breakfast & Lunch. I recommend the very flavorful and filling Huevos Rancheros. Fresh pastries daily and do not pass up the Cuban Coffee-a nice change from a mocha.

When you're in Moab and looking for breakfast, the Jailhouse Cafe won't easily be beat. Open for breakfast only, this popular local hangout often boasts a wait of 25-30 minutes. Well worth the wait in my opinion.
Omelets, bacon and eggs, the whole breakfast gamut. Including the best coffee I've had in a while (beside my own :)).

Off the main street and in a converted house.
Good for a special dinner or if you want to splurge. It is a little pricey but they do offer a "Chef's Cut" (smaller portion of their beef cuts) and salad comes with the dinner.

I've never seen a menu this big and absolutely everything is delicious and waaaaay too much to eat. The pancakes are the size of a large skillet and they're just the side order for most of the main items on the menu.

I used to ride to Las Vegas form Salt Lake City on a regular basis. On those times when I didn't have to take I-15, I would stop at Mom's, regardless of the time of day, just making sure I was hungry when I got there.
Mom's sells a perfect road-food club sandwich. Coke served with crushed ice and any of the home-made pies make for a great pick-me-up on the Wasatch Plateau.

Get a scramble for breakfast or lunch. They only have breakfast and lunch. Then eat it for 2 days. Real lumberjacks eat here. Closed Mondays. Actually, I know all the good places to eat in Enumclaw, since I live there, and this is the best. One of the gateways to Mount Rainier.
