NYC to Gaithersburg via I-95? DE to MD off I 95 chow?

Anything directly off I95 from DE to Gaithersburg that is chow worthy, and inexpensive but not a dump?
Thanks...any cuisine but Japanese.
There was some discussion of a Cajun place along that route. Someone probably remembers the name and town. I put it on that list that's in a file somewhere, named something I'd never to think to look for. <g>
When I'm on that route, I usually just stop at a McDonald's for an iced coffee and eat when I get home. I don't like driving on a full stomach and I don't bother with particularly chow worthy eateries unless I'm prepared to fill up.
It depends when you're traveling. One of my guilty pleasures is stopping at a Waffle House for breakfast. I really like the waffles and potatoes there and Maryland is just far enough south to have a couple of Waffle Houses. I usually stop at the one just of I-95 near the Aberdeen MD exit (forgot the route number)
A few exits south of Baltimore, on Rt 175 east just after it crosses US1 is a very good Chinese buffet, Fortune Star (I think it's called that).
A few more exits south is Rt 198 east - Pasta Plus is on an island between US1 South and US1 North and serves good Itallian food.
I have been making this trip for 20+ years and my favorite spot to stop is The Doghouse right off 95 just before the DE Memorial Bridge. Great cheesesteaks, hot dogs and Pizza. Not a lot of ambience but good food and inexpensive.
