Lunch off 95 in Westchester County?

Hi everyone,

New guy here looking for advice. I'm driving up from Philly to Rhode Island next week and I'm looking for a good place to have lunch on the way either in northern NJ, the Bronx, Westchester County, or Stamford.


Cheap, good, quick, and not too far off 95. Understand that I will be people who would prefer to stop at a rest stop, not lose time, and get to our destination ASAP. To convince them, it can't be far off the highway. I'm thinking like a place that would be featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.

Your advice is appreciated! Thank you.

  1. Well if you don't mind going just a teeny bit further you could always go to Pepe's Pizza in Fairfield CT (exit 25 off of I-95). Quick on & off and great GREAT pizza....just my 2c

      1. there are McD's along 95 in darien and southport

        =) I kid, I kid

        Colony grill is an easy off/easy on at exit 7 in stamford, el charrito's storefront right off/on at exit 5 in old greenwich

        1. 1 block off exit 3 in Greenwich Ct is Thataway Cafe, a place right out of Triple-D. Great food, simple menu, and if the weather is good, a wonderful outdoor dining area in a park-like setting. Just over the NY-CT line.

          1. Black Duck Cafe-Westport CT. Right of I-95. Funny I went to Google to get a website for you...and it turns out they were featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.


            The BDC has been a dive bar in Westport for as far back as my memory goes. The link says they are famous for their wings which are definitely good-but I always liked their steamers, lobster dinner...and burgers too.

            BTW Dive and Westport is something of an Oxymoron. Even my fairly formal parents like to "slum" it at the duck.
