Good food along I-84?

Am driving from VT to Michigan at warp speed with a 13-year-old. Anyone have suggestions for fun lunch/dinner spots along Rt 84? Scranton area & Punxatawney (spelling?) are targets. Thanks!

  1. For Punxsutawney, the hotel has a decent restaurant which faces a park. On the other side of the park is the library where Punxsutawney Phil lives. There are also fiberglass Phils painted by local artists around town -- after saying this, hope they are still there. The best restaurant is just outside of town. It is called Mary Jean's, or something close to that. Punxsutawney is a pleasant stop while driving across PA but might be a little far off I-80 for someone driving at warp speed to Michigan.
