I have a friend who has to drive from New York to Florida with her family of four, a couple of times a year. I feel her pain, and am determined to find some good places for her to try out along the way. So any good food tips for the I-95 route, let me know. In the meantime, I just found an old article that the Lee Brothers wrote for Travel+Leisure. Although it's several years old, I find that most local gems that have been around forever, stay around forever. But do call before you pull off the highway and hype up the meal to the whole family. There's nothing more disappointing than telling a starving car that the place you've just talked about for the last hour is closed today, or only open for dinner.
