Is 380 USD enough money for FOOD for a 7-10 day road trip for one person in America?
I like to eat well when I go on vacation
Not the ramen or spam you would eat if you were trying to save

Based on 28 meals (8 days), that would be an average of $13 per meal. Of course, like me, you may only eat twice a day and snack.
Point of reference:
Average fast food meal (McDonald's, Taco Bell) $6 to $8
Average fast casual meal (Chipotle, SmashBurger, Five Guys) $8 to $15
Average casual table service (Chili's, Applebees, Olive Garden) $15 to $25
Average carry out large pizza $8 to $12
You can do a few cheap meals and then splurge on a special meal or a night of drinking.
You can certainly stretch your dollar with snacks and at grocery stores.
So, it can certainly be done

$380 should be enough for fast food places but dont expect 3 meals out of it. Id say lunch and dinner. And maybe some dollar menu items

Just maybe, but you won't be eating fancy and will have to budget. Not ramen but no fine dining.

Where do you plan on eating? Go to places like that in your town, look at the menu and note the prices. Do some arithmetic.
$38/day is a little low, unless you are going the cook your own food route.
