PA to TN along I 81

  • 5

I will be traveling from PA to TN along I 81 in March. I would like to know if anyone has ideas of places to get a quick bite to eat with the exception of fast food. Any help would be appreciated. I usually enjoy stopping at Cracker Barrel.

Thank you - Heather

  1. I would google those areas or cracker barrel and see where they are, just had chicken and dumplins there last night, ummmm~DEB

    1. Harrisburg and Carlisle PA have some good choices:


      Also, there are good options in Winchester VA. Check the South board:

      PA to TN on I-81 is a long long long long monotonous boring drive. Take some good CDs.

      1. I don't know if the exit is off I-70 and I-81 or just I-70, but in Hagerstown the AC&T at the outlet mall has great fried chicken, mac and cheese, potato wedges and etc. They have some booths you can eat at inside. It is good stuff.

        1. Hi-

          You will want to post a query on the South board so that locals can help you with that major leg of your travel through Virginia with recommendations.

          1. You're in luck. 5 CB's from Wilkes-Barre through Chambersburg. (Chambersburg is truckstop/fastfood central.) One in the little piece of WV. 9 in VA. And two in TN.
