Drive-thrus, drive-ins and walk-up windows in the South
I'll be taking a road trip from Mobile to DC via Charlotte during the heat of summer and won't be able to leave my dog in my car to go eat. I wanted to know if anyone had recommendations for local, cheap drive-thrus, drive-ins or walk up windows. I will taking the following highways:
65 from Mobile to Montgomery
85 from Montgomery to Charlotte (then on to Greensboro)
29 and 360 to Richmond (or I may stay on 85 if there's good chow)
95 to DC
2 drive-ins that come to mind are The Varsity in Atlanta and The Beacon in Spartanburg, SC. In Greensboro, Stamey's BBQ has a drive-in thru window, although the 'q is not outstanding. Cook Out is a small chain in NC has above average fast food and is drive thru only.
Also, since this board doesn't cover AL and VA, you may want to also post on the Central South and Mid Atlantic boards.
Price's Chicken Coop

(http://www.charmeck.org/Departments/P...) is a great place to eat and stretch your legs after eating. Picnic tables and a large shelter if the weather is rainy. It is a very short drive from Price's so the chicken will still be warm when you arrive.

BBQ King in Charlotte, NC looks like an outstanding stop. It's about 2 miles South of I 85 but it's not hard to find at all. Exit I 85 @ Exit 34 at Freedom Dr. take 1st right on Ashley and go 2 miles to Hwy. 74. Take your right on 74 and BBQK is on your left right after you turn.
There's a Cook Out at Exit 111 on I 85 at Archdale, NC just south of Greensboro. Exit @ 11 on S. Main St. take 1st right on Renola Dr. then 1st right on Interstate Drive. Cook Out is on your right.
There's another Cook Out @ Exit 36 I 85 Goldsboro take Randleman Rd. to the right and then Cook Out is @ 2601 Randleman Rd.
There's another Cook Out East of Goldsboro at Exit 141 on I 85 at Huffman Mill Rd. turn left and go North to Cook Out on your right.
