Spring, TX (sorta the North side of Houston)
Corkscrew BBQ

They claim to be true Texas BBQ, which I don't exactly agree with, however they are by far the best BBQ I've ever had which is saying something. The pulled pork is unreal, the ribs are awesome, and the prices are fair.

Galveston, TX

Amazing seafood. Not cheap, but worth every penny.

Here in Ontario, the un-written law is that anyone driving north to cottage country from the Greater Toronto Area MUST stop a Weber's for hamburgers. They are located right on the highway and have the best burgers you can imagine. The line-up to get lunch usually starts at around 11AM and they had so many people crossing the freeway on foot to get there, they built a pedestrian bridge over it!

If you like Basque - Bakersfield CA is the place to be, unless you're a sheep. The Wool Growers is great. Noriega's is nice, although requires a set 7pm seating time. There's several others too.

In Ann Arbor:

The Fleetwood Diner
Krazy Jim's Blimpy Burger
Bell's Diner (no web site)
Big Ten Burrito (not the Cantina)
Jerusalem Garden
Exotic Cuisine and Bakeries
Ray's Red Hots
Village Kitchen (no web site)
The Broken Egg (no web site, closes after lunch)
Angelo's (closes after lunch)
Northside Grill (no web site, closes after lunch)
Dimo's Deli and Donuts (closes after lunch)

Ann Arbor has more restaurants than you can shake a stick at, but these are the most diner-like places.

In Chicago, Kuma's Corner has awesome food. And it's been on Drive in and dives, lol! In downtown Naperville Egg Harbour is a great breakfast/lunch place.

I loved to Florida last year, so I'm still finding places. In Riverside, Kickbacks is a good time. The burgers kick ass, and all the other food is top notch. Huge beer selection on tap, and the staff knows beer.
