Eating ethnic from Edison NJ to Wash DC

v

I have a limited amount of time for a chow/drive from Edison to DC. Looking out for food grabs on the way:

Fried hot dogs
Steamed crabs
Cheesesteaks
Hogies

Must be easy exits from 95, 295 as I get lost easily even though I grew up in Philly.

Thanks,

Victor

      Can't you venture away from 95 and try Route 27? Then you can hit Tastee Subs in Edison, right off 27 on Plainfield Ave., and Hoagie Haven in Princeton.

        recently drove from Florida to NYork on 95..and found it really hard to find decent food, although we were willing to detour ten or so miles away..are there good links on Chowhound for all this distance? Or could we make such a guide?

          If you grew up in Philly, then you ought to be able to find Tony Lukes on Oregon Ave (right UNDER I-95) for the best roast pork sandwiches and cheesesteaks in town. I know how to get there but I can't explain. Try Mapquest.

          For great crab cakes or crabs along the way, take the I-95 Northeast, MD, exit into Northeast and look for Woody's Crabs on main street.

          I don't know if I'd call either of these places ethnic but they sure are local.

            Be clear as I95 in PA is not the same as the NJ turnpike which you would take from Edison to DC.

              Last time I checked, the NJTP ended at the Delaware Bay Bridge. If you want to go farther south on an interstate, you're taking 95, otherwise you'll end up in Cape May.

              Thanks, I have never made it to Tony Luke's, although since this trip I did get back to the Reading Terminal's Roast Pork Sandwhiches and the son of Pat's cheesesteaks and the hot dog cart on the way out of town...I should have replied when it was all fresh in my mind....My bad...Incidentally, for any of you who are in Southern California and in need of a Cheesesteak...Philly Franks in San Marcos is the real deal...The best of the ex-patriots.
