Help ! Sarasota to Asheville to Upstate NY

We have always driven I-95 but in a few weeks we are heading North stopping to visit relatives in Asheville and then on the Central NY. I am told to take I-75 all the way to Asheville. New territory for us. We're real BBQ foodies and love unique,regional home cooking. Need some great advice on where to stop along the way.Route: I-75 Sarasota to Ashevlle then I-81 to NYS. Thanks in advance !

  1. You might want to pull out a map...I-75 doesn't go through Asheville. Also, this board only covers GA, SC and NC, so you'll need to post on the other appropriate boards for the other states. In Asheville, there are many, many good choices...for bbq, 12 Bones is great, for unique regional cooking i like Tupelo Honey and The Admiral. A quick search will turn up lots of other suggestions.

    1. I am embarrassed for not checking a map. I guess it's I-75 to I-85 to I-26 unless someone suggest another better route.More specific opportunities to good eating.
