Easily identified by its famous giant neon sign, Moody’s endures as the rest stop of choice on Maine’s mid-coast highway. Family owned and operated since 1927, the busy drive-in, drive-out diner—which counts more than 30 family members on its staff—serves home-cooked New England food, like fried day-boat haddock and Maine mashed potatoes, as well as your standard American quick bites. It’s especially good at the sweet stuff; crème puffs and biscuits are baked fresh each morning, and the walnut and whoopie pies have even caught the attention of editors at national food magazines. For a nostalgia kick, check out its old menu from the 1930s, the days when a “hamburg with steamed bun” went for as little as 30 cents.

Insider Tip:

Sit with the locals at the lunch counter for a good dose of Down East banter.
