They'd be Roadfood if there weren't so !@#$ many of them

Which fast food franchises and restaurant chains do you think are roadfood quality; they'd be listed in Roadfood if there were only one of them?  As an example, I suspect the McDonald brothers' original drive-in in San Bernadino would have made it, if Roadfood had been around back then.  My criteria: Good food and the places have some real character and don't seem "designed" to look like they have character.
 
Here are my choices:
Waffle House
Checker's/Rally's
A&W Drive-In
Stewart's Drive-In
White Castle
Boston Chicken (pre-Boston Market)
Handel's Ice Cream
Howard Johnson's (pre-70s - not on the turnpike)
Skyline Chilli
Morrison's Cafeterias (pre-Picadilly)
Black-Eyed Peas Restaurant
Big Boy Drive-Ins (pre-Marriott): Elias Brother's, Frish's, Marc's, Shoney's, Bob's, etc.
 
I like Five Guys burgers, hot dogs and fries but the place seems too artificial; some corporate designer's idea of Roadfood, so I left them off.   Same for Bob Evans but I love the biscuits and gravy.
