Driving from Charlotte NC to Memphis TN need places along Interstaes 85 and 20

My son and I are planning a trip to Memphis in May. Would appreciate any suggestions for stops along the way which are not to far from the highways we are traveling on. We are driving on 85 thru both SC and Georgia then onto 20 into Alabama and TN,

  1. Bad news...I-20 doesn't go to Tennessee! :-) You might want to also post this on the South Central board (if you haven't already), as the Southeast board only covers NC, SC and GA. You might also want to do a search for things like "I-85", "I-20", "Birmingham", "Atlanta", etc. I don't know what kind of food you're looking for, but 2 "roadfood" classics are The Beacon in Spartanburg, SC and The Varsity in Atlanta. Both are classic drive-in style, hamburger and hot dog places.
