Taking my high-school senior on a final road trip ... Nashville to Purdue University (West Lafayette, IN) to Miami University (Oxford, Ohio). Looking for breakfast and dinner spots in our destination locations. As always, thanks for any recommendations!!

Since you don't mention any routes and I-65 runs from Nashville to W. Lafayette, are you planning on sticking to the interstates for most of your trip?

I can attest that there isn't much out of the ordinary food wise in Oxford, Ohio.

Triple XXX at Purdue is a natural...Raodfood listed, been there twice, both times for college tours to Purdue.  Does breakfast all day, and burgers all day.
 
Both times at Miami of Ohio, i passed on the food and instead went to Dayton.  There, the Pines is a really good choice.

You will be going right past Columbus, IN, the home of Zaharako's, which is newly refurbished in the couple of years.
 
In Louisville, the must stops are Lynn's Paradise Cafe and Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen.
 
My favorite place in the Indy metro area is Gray's Brothers Cafeteria.

Last year I enjoyed the tamales at Indy's The Tamale Place and it's not too far from the highway.  If you're in the mood for barbecue in the Lafayette area, South Street Smokehouse on South Street is pretty good but beware of road construction.
