Driving through Atlanta to Florida
Where is a good, quick place to stop for dinner (not a chain)?
I-75? I-85? Fast or slow? Anything you like/don't? Crawling through during rush hour on a workday?
You haven't given much to go on other than asking for a spoon feed.
Tricky because even the good non-chain, quick places can get busy; i.e. Houston's or Local Three (on 75).
Depends on time of day and what you really want.
In addition to rcburli's suggestions:
Taqueria del Sol- there's one near Atlantic Station or one that's a slight side trip on Cheshire Bridge
Figo Pasta- another local chain with a location near Atlantic Station (same location as Taqueria)
Heirloom Market BBQ- also near I-75 near 285 on the N side (takeout; assume they'll be open)
Antico Pizza Napoletana- also near Atlantic Station/GA Tech
If the last two interest you, I would check- they might also be on the road to FL via I-75 on the 26th.
You could also make a slight side trip to either Grindhouse Burgers (Piedmont Rd) or Farm Burger (on Piedmont Rd a couple miles north and less easy to get to exc via 285 and GA 400). Or Bantam & Biddy (rotisserie chicken and sides) for that matter.
You could get off 75 at Howell Mill Road. Flip Burger is fun, usually some interesting choices. A bit further south on Howell Mill is a Figo Pasta and a Taqueria del Sol which ted mentioned, along with Star Provisions which makes good sandwiches and has a bakery. A little farther is West Egg Cafe - serves meatloaf, chicken & waffles. etc..
