Cooking with Gas: Where to Find Great Gas Station Food

Ah, the open road. You know you are really and truly on a road trip when you pull into your first gas station and start gorging on gross snacks. What if, however, those snacks weren't gross? There are only so many Corn Nuts and pieces of beef jerky a person can eat, after all. Some gas stations across this great land of ours have eschewed the gross in favor of the gourmet. On tonight's season premiere of Offbeat Eats with Jim Stacy, you'll get to pull off the tourist-jammed highway to fuel up on some of these secret gas station restaurants.

You'll have to tune in at 9:30pm ET to see Jim's picks, but in the meantime, here are some of our favorite fancy-pants gas stations that serve fancy-pants grub.

Tune in to Offbeat Eats with Jim Stacy at 9:30pm ET to meet the roadside rebel chefs and their quirky eateries that are off the beaten path.
