Driving to DC from N.E.

  • 4

Fellow Chowsters - I've been doing this drive for years (New England to DC) but have never stopped in-between for food. Either brought it all or got it at (Yelp!!) pit stops. Where is a good chowhound place south of NYC off 95 (Jersey tpk). Must be easy to get to and back on, not far from the exit, not too expensive (with family, "kids" are grown up though), and be worth the extra effort. Any cuisine is welcome, we love all food as long as it's good (wife is veggie, I'm not a big meat eater so hot dog places don't make it).
Please help out. BTW - if there is anything good on 95, we can do that too. Thanks all. Chow On !!

    1. North of exit 80 i think there is a cracker barrel. also south on on NJTP exit 1 or 2 there is a Cracker Barrel. BOTH are easy on, easy off, relatively safe stops.

      1. Harold's Deli in Edison, NJ, just off the Turnpike. The sandwiches are humonguous (pastrami is pretty good) as are desserts and there is a pickled salads bar.

        1. You are passing through a heavy duty indian area in Edison/Iselin NJ, with the most authentic indian food in the NYC metro area. Someone familiar with the turnpike exits and local logistics is going to have to give the on/off info and specifics, however.
