Roadtrip from LA

Hey chowbuddies --

I'm driving from LA to Cortez, Colorado this weekend. I'd love to know if there are any gems along the way that you could recommend for us to stop and chow down. I know what's good in LA, its along the way that i'm getting stuck with. Cheap lunch & dinner recs are greatly appreciated! I think i'll be in or around flagstaff, arizona for lunch and cortez, colorado for dinner.

Any kind of food will do, we're not too picky. american, chinese, japanese, thai, italian, french, spanish... along those lines. trying to avoid mexican, but if that's the only choice for the area, we'll take it. trying to decide if it's worth it to eat on the way, or just pack our own food.

thanks for your help!

    West of Flagstaff roughly one hour is a small town called Seligman. Well worth getting off the freeway and driving through town. Old Route 66 and quite a sight. Lilo's is good and the Sno Cap Drive-in has a good burger and malt if that is all you are in the mood for for lunch. It is a very short detour off of the interstate and well worth your time. Off on the first Seligman exit and then you can continue through town and get back on the freeway without backtracking at all.
