Across Pennsylvania

I'm driving across Pennsylvania on I-80 soon and it doesn't look like there is much along the way. Any recommendations?

    A few miles off I-80 in Lock Haven is the Texas Lunch - great diner food and chili dogs for the road.

    If you are in the Bloomsburg area, May's Barbecue has good (but not Southern-like) sandwiches. Jimmy's Quick Lunch has good cheap hot dogs in downtown Hazleton. It's an institution as is Senape's Bakery for addictive "pitza" (cold pizza) in Hazleton. Everybody's Cafe is a cute place just west of downtown Stroudsburg---excellent tapas, etc.

    The Stern's have written about Plyler's (Brookville-western PA) good pizza with funky toppings, though I haven't been there in years. Closer to the 81 split are the also Roadfood approved Tom's Kitchen (Conyngham) for good blue plate meals and the Family Diner in White Haven (excellent pancakes/scrapple) for breakfast.

    Also in the Bloomsburg area, at Buckhorn, the Buckhorn truck stop. Lots of food, good service, and a stuffed mountain lion in the dining room.

    My brother-in-law and his wife stopped there last week while driving out to Cleveland and had a blast. They couldn't stop talking about how much fun the place is, with all those different size burgers.

    Try the original (and one of a kind) location of Quaker Steak & Lube in Sharon, PA on the PA/OH border.
    http://www.quakersteakandlube.com/default.asp?fldLocation=sharon

    They even rate their own "Wiki": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quaker_Steak_and_Lube

    Enjoy, as I have often.

    As mentioned above by  Oneiron339 ,The Texas Lunch/Restaurant in Lock Haven is well worth the 8 mile trip off I-80.  
     
    I stopped in for breakfast, and sat next to the official historian for the place.  In business since 1918 and run by the same Greek family since 1962.  The breakfast was...well...it was breakfast.  Very good, typical ham and egg breakfast served in a jiffy.  But my new friend told me I had to get there for lunch and try a hot dog.  He told me they were called "Growler's", but I never thought to ask him why.
     
    I went back for lunch, the grill in the front window was loaded with dogs.  The hot dogs are made locally by Country Store in Pennsdale, PA.  A very tasty dog with an excellent Greek Style chili.
     
    Breakfast, lunch or dinner, Texas Restaurant is a great stop, right in the middle of good ole PA.
     
    One more thing, parking.  Twenty-five cents will get you 2 1/2 hours of street parking
