Best Food Near I-95?

This is kind of an unusual request; I'm not looking for food in any particular city. Instead, the fiancée and I are going to be driving back from Charleston, SC to Washington, DC tomorrow, after having been in Charleston for a wedding. It's a looong drive so we'll probably stop for lunch along the way. So, can anyone recommend their favorite food place that's close to I-95 between Charleston and DC? Authentic southern favorites -- BBQ joints in particular -- are especially welcome, and we'd love to be able to stop in a nice area where we could get out, walk around the town and stretch our legs, etc.

And please, no posts containing the words "cracker" and "barrel."

Thanks in advance!

  1. Depending on your departure time from Charleston, you could try Holt Lake Restaurant on Rt301 about a mile north of I95 exit 90. (about 4 hours from Charleston). Specially good fried chicken and sides.
