From White Plains to Troy up I-87 - Looking for a Good Roadside Lunch

Flying into White Plains, and heading up I-87 to Troy, and then
Rt. 7 over to Bennington, VT.
Would love to find a worthwhile place to stop for lunch.
Don't mind taking a little sidetrip, if it's for a good cause.
And a good lunch is always a good cause.
Roadside Diner, Pub, Burger Stand or Pizza Joint is what I'm looking for.
All input is appreciated.
Thanks.

    Troy has some decent pubs. Go to downtown River St area and ask. Right off Route 7 so it's 5 minutes. If you like Lebanese food you can get a huge chicken or beef wrap for $5 on River St. Can't remember name; ask in the antique shops. Bear right at huge monument in center. Ted's Fish Fry is on Route 7.

      Best recommendation--Hang on another half hour or so until you get to Bennington, and have lunch at the Blue Benn Diner. Much better than even the decent places in Troy. Better than anyplace.

        Although I have yet to get there myself, I've heard lots of good things about The Man of Kent - http://www.mokcc.com/mokpub.htm . It is right on Route 7, closer to Bennington than to Troy.
