Lunch between Charlotte, NC and Greenville, SC

NYC Hound here..I'll be driving from Charlotte to Greenville next Tuesday and need someplace to stop for lunch. I would imagine I'll stop around the halfway point (not that I know where I'll be!)

Any/all suggestions welcomed!

    Thanks everyone. Due to timing and meeting other people, we ended up eating at some chain called California Dreaming right near where meeting was. I was dreaming that I was eating somewhere else! Blech...

    I'll keep these suggestions filed away for next time!

        It's only a 1 1/2 hour drive. If I were you I'd eat in either Charlotte or Greenville. Not much in between. If you must, i would suggest Wades, a very casual "meat and three" restaurant a few miles off I85 in Spartanburg...but you'll be almost to G'ville by then.

          Thanks Danna. I figured as much. How about some recos in G'ville?

            Glad to. Is there a particular part of town you'll be arriving in? Downtown, maybe?

            Geez, it's hard to give recs to a NYC hound...G'ville is somewhat lacking, so I'll try to take convenience into account.

            Otherwise, my favorite lunches are Murasake at Cherrydale, sit at the sushi bar; Mary's (downtown) froufy ladies who lunch joint , but w/ fantastic view of park from upstairs balcony; Bohemian for their burger (it's not a great burger, but this state has a no-rare-burger-unless-you-grind-it-fresh law) and house potato chips; Pita House, funky meditarranean; Doc Chey, americanized pan-asian; Whole Foods pizza bar.

            Avoid anything in this town w/ the word "deli" in it.

            Shoot me a locale and your preferences and I'll try to do better.
