I do a lot of my driving around town or at least near town, so in most cases I'm never far from a supermarket. Like you said McDonalds are fairly reasonable in their pricing compared to other eat-in places.
I don't make lots of long journeys, but I do sometimes drive around 150 miles on the M5 to visit family, and thankfully there's McDonalds on both our favourite services in either direction. I did get caught out at one time as the queues were a nightmare, so we went next door into the other little place which was like a clone of McDonalds but offering pasties and sandwiches. Two coffees and a bacon roll cost over £6, where as in McDonalds two coffees and a couple of large fries is a little over half that price.
Oh and the coffee didn't even come close to the McDonalds coffee, I have about 10 loyalty cards of them so when I can be bothered I'll go and claim all my free coffees
