Start the car, and bring your appetite. Here are the absolutely best places to eat along Western highways
Hudson’s Hamburgers, Coeur d’Alene, ID. Every morning, customers swarm Hudson’s the minute it opens at 9:30. The draw? Simple burgers (no sides, not even fries!), perfectly grilled—a formula that’s been working since 1907. $; 207 E. Sherman Ave.; 208/664-5444.
The Peg House, Leggett, CA (Sunset reader favorite). The Summer of Love returns to the California redwoods: back-to-the-Earth groove, live music, and a barbecue that grills lustfully juicy bacon cheeseburgers. $; 69501 U.S. 101; 707/925-6444.
