Here's the Pennsylvania/Maryland list from my blog:
I thought I'd compile a list of my favorite motorcycle road food spots. I'm always looking for something funky or unusual, and have stumbled on a number of them. You'll notice that the themes for my selections are BBQ, German, fish sandwichs or reubens. As that great philosopher Popeye said, "I yams what I yams and dats all dat I yam."
Andy Nelson's BBQ
Where else can you say your server actually played in the greatest NFL game ever?
It's not North Carolina, but pretty good for Q north of the Potomac
Chap's Pit Beef
It's no fun riding through Baltimore but worth it for this place. Featured on "Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives"
Jean Bonnet Tavern
Historic, 18th century tavern on the excellent Rt 30. The Whiskey Rebellion plotters met there.
Appalachian Brew Pub
Just west of Gettysburg, right next to Robert E. Lee's headquarters
Prudhomme's Lost Cajun Kitchen
Very nice place run by a nephew of Paul Prudhomme. Between York and Lancaster.
Denny's Beer Barrel Pub
When you're in the mood for a 6 lb. hamburger. If not, you should be able to find something on their 11 page menu.

A hidden gem in an unlikely place. The walleye is to die for.

I've been to several of these restaurants and they were wonderful. Excellent choices. I never had the 6lb. burger at Denney's Beer Barrel Pub but I've never seen so many items on one menu. By the way, how much do you weigh?

Some good pastries and pizza up the street at Cousin's if you're interested in a little dessert after BIG W.
No affiliation, just spreading the word on some good eats.
