Comfort food off the Turnpike?

We're going to be driving from NYC to D.C. on Friday night, and we should be right in the middle of Jersey somewhere around dinner time. Any recommendations for a food stop near the Turnpike? I'm guessing that a comfort food sort of place is what I'm most likely to find (Italian, a diner, etc.). The only such place I've been to is Mastoris in Bordentown. I was just wondering if there are any other suggestions...

  1. Hi:

    If you get off at Turnpike Exit 2, and drive a couple of miles east on 322 in Mullica Hill, there's a brand new Amish market with a nice snack bar/restaurant, of course, being an Amish market, it closes early. There's also a diner right there too.

    Exit 4 offers a wide variety of foods east on Route 70. Not only are there diners and Italian, there are also Indian choices and even a Maylasian place. However, I'm still scouting them out.
