  1. I've mapped the route that you are taking.

    I would advise stopping at diners at least once or twice in New Jersey.

    But as I never really eat at them, I'll let other Chows respond with their favorites.

      1. Hi-

        In order to insure that the locals with the local information can help you, you will want to post separate queries on the Tri-state and South boards in addition to your post here.

            As far as your destination, as I am sure others will tell you, you MUST go to Dreamland BBQ in Tuscaloosa.

            I unfortunately am not all that familiar with the rest of your journey in re: eateries along the way. Good luck!
