I will be driving next week along Interstate 64 from Charlottesville, VA. through to Mt. Vernon, Illinois. Are there any must-go places to eat along the way, especially in West Virginia and Kentucky? BBQ is especially welcome, but all cuisines are fine bye me.
TAMARAC... On I-64 at Beckley WV
is a "MUST STOP" for an excellent casual restaurant
for travelers. The staff is trained and supplied
from the multi-star resort The Greenbrier in WV.
The menu selections are absolutely delicious, healthy,
and reasonably priced for the quality of the meal.
Also this is a fascinating center for top-of-the-line
WV crafts.....(and for travelers...there are immaculately
clean bathrooms). We never fail to stop here on our
trips on I-64.
KY has a fantastic restaurant RIGHT off 64. www.hollyhillinn.com you'd think you'd died and gone to NYC and are still paying KY prices. all the food is sophisticated, local, and fresh. Nothing in Lexington (after TAMARAC you'll be hungry by this time) compares to it, and the other places are way off the highway. report back on the drive, if you remember!
