I live in the Netherlands, but will be travelling to the US for a holiday. Yay!

We intent to do a road trip through Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida.

Road trips to us mean: drive a day, stay at a cheap motel, visit town/city, sleep at same motel, drive on.

This will come down to eating at road side eateries a lot. Are there any places you guys can recommend that are less bad? We don't have a lot of fast-food/road side restaurants in the Netherlands, other than McD, BK and KFC.

Also, if there's lingo for how to order a coffee at Starbucks (whole cream, no sugar, coffee), I'd appreaciate it!
