I have a couple of ideas on your "route 66" part of the drive for food. First in OKC the Cattlemen's Steakhouse down by the stockyards is not just an Oklahoma great eatery, but its an American classic. It may well be the best steak dinner you will ever have. I think New Mexico offers some the best food in the country. Its not just NM food either - although it is fantastic - but from North to South and at least to the West, be it Thai, Greek, or Steak, they just do food in a special way in NM. On your route 66 path, the Nob Hill area of Albuquerque has all kinds of choices. There is a classic traditional to the North end of the Q, El Pinto, that is just a beautiful place to eat with incredible food. ( No I am not from NM or OKC, just fortunate to have traveled to those places numerous times)

I suggest you take I-10 to avoid bad weather. En route you can eat tasty food in and hear Zydeco and Cajun music in Lafayette, LA. You can eat Cajun food such as red beans and rice, Jambalaya, and Creole Gumbo at restaurants such as Dwight's. The Acadia Village is a replica of an 1820s Acadian village with gardens. Between Lafayette and St. Martinsville is the Cypress Island Swamp. View alligators and many types of birds beneath live oak and cypress trees dripping with Spanish moss.

“Known as Le Petit Paris (“Little Paris”) where the arts thrived in the 1700s and early 1800s, St. Martinsville has an unique French and Black Creole history. The Evangeline Oak Park centers on an ancient live oak tree (with hanging Spanish moss) on the Bayou Teche. The tree is named for the heroine of the poem Evangeline, written and published by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in 1847.

The Hill Country of Texas is famous for its rolling hills, clear streams, and German architecture. The region has such a mild climate it has attracted many retirees. Explore German towns such as Fredricksburg, Boerne, and Castroville. Eat German food. Check out Bandera, the self-proclaimed “Cowboy Capital of the World”. Ride horses on a nearby guest (dude) ranch. Be sure to eat the world-famous Texas chili, Tex-Mex and BBQ.

I have to agree with the I-10 route for weather - no doubt and the food and culture you can breathe in on that route is amazing!

The towns to shoot for for 10-11 hour daily drives are Charlotte NC, Jackson MS and Midland Texas. Once you get to Charlotte, you should not have too many worries about snow. Make sure your vehicle and yourself are in good condition for driving.
