Good eats between Atlanta and Orlando?

We're on a driving vacation and I'm interested in anything chow worthy between Atlanta and Orlando. In Georgia, I'd love to find a great peach cobbler and/or other pie. Any suggestions?

      Buckner's Family Restaurant just off I-75 at exit 201 in Georgia is known for their fried chicken and peach cobbler.

      And a good dessert stop would be at Lane Southern Orchards in Fort Valley, Georgia. It is just a few minutes away from I-75. Tasty peach cobbler is always available. Strawberries are in season until the end of May, so strawberry cobbler is an option at this time of the year. Pecan pie is another good choice.
