Feasting on Asphalt in the Northeast

Please introduce my non-American friend and his mother to Real Americana food joints in North East USA, the more picturesque and famous the better.

A friend is planning to take a 2-week long road trip with his mom (who hasn't had a vacation in decades), starting in NYC. He's a big fan of Alton Brown and he wants to do a trip rather like the one AB did in Feasting on Asphalt
but concentrated around NY State/NJ/PA, maybe New England also. (Feasting on Asphalt didn't cover that area at all.) I already told him to pick up a copy of Road Food
, but I am wondering what MeFi people would recommend.
Criteria: decent, all-American food; not too expensive or fancy (no Michelin stars required); picturesque is good (they want to take lots of photos with mom in the foreground); famous or notorious is even better. Restaurants, diners, roadside stands, interesting food related shops are all good.
