Driving to D.C. for Thanksgiving and stopping overnight in Archdale, NC. Any suggestions for dinner along the way. Would like suggestions right off the I-95 exit.

    I'm a little confused by your post...are you looking for suggestions anywhere along the way, or just in Archdale? If its the latter, I'm afraid the pickings will be slim in Archdale. The suggestion for Lexington BBQ is a good one, depending on the day of the week and time of day. As an option, High Point is fairly close to Archdale, perhaps you could drive into there and find something. If you're staying in a hotel, you may want to consider pushing on to Greensboro (about 30 minutes from Archdale) and stay there. Lots of good eats in G'boro.

      We just made this drive, from Burlington area south to Atlanta (on Friday) and back today. There must be a way to find the best local food near I-85 for those of us traveling who don't want to stray too far from the highway. We finally , our of desperation, ended up at a Cracker Barrel because we couldn't determine where other places were. We will be making that trip again in a few months and I don't want to make the same mistake. Midway for us is anywhere in SC on the way south, and Charlotte north to Lexington on the way north. Please, someone must know of good places to eat!

        OK, I'll make a stab here. I know a good local Italian place in Salisbury (about halfway between Charlotte and Lexington), it's called Cartucci's and it's right downtown in the old historic area.

      Well, the classic is Lexington Barbecue (aka Number One) in Lexington, just as a little ways short of your overnight. Many who prefer this regional iteration of cue claim it to be the state's best.

          I-95? Do you mean I-85? You don't hit I-95 until Richmond, VA. From Atlanta to Archdale, and Archdale to Richmond, is I-85.
