I'll be driving from coast to coast soon. The only place I know for sure I want to see is the Grand Canyon. Help me get the most of this trip.

I wouldn't mind taking a detour in each state to eat at someplace special. Real special. Fancy, local, absurd--whatever. As long as it isn't more than 30 minutes or so out of the way.
I'll almost for sure be passing through West Virginia, Kentucky, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, down to Arizona for the Grand Canyon, and then over to California. But I could swing an extra state in north or south of any of those in order to see something special.
I assume I'll mostly be on Interstates, but are there any stretches where a different route would pay dividends? Which major cities should get a major helping of my time? Etc.
I'll have about a week, give or take, one way.
