By the same token, Fast Food sites have whetted our appetite for years. Located in this section are the grease spoons that are basically local in nature. Many of these one site wonders have attracted customers by promoting a unique look, food, or setting. Unfortunately, for all of the fast food locations that catch success, another grease joint folds. See more at Roadside Peek's Fast Food Joints.

Sometimes racing the sun while on a road trip means no stopping at the fancy restaurant in town. In times like this, there's no beating a local hot dog stand favorite. See some of them at Roadside Peek's Avenue of the Dogs.
