I’m helping a friend drive his son to college in Atlanta solely to stop at a few places I’ve been wanting to try. We will leave on Thursday August 19 with the intention of driving straight thru to Atlanta. This will not allow a lot of time for stops, and my co-passengers will not have much tolerance for anything too far off the interstate. I will be returning from Atlanta alone starting Saturday the 21st and will have plenty of time for Roadfoodin’.
The fly in the ointment is that most if not all of the places I want to stop at are closed on Sunday. Heading south I hope to be able to hit Stamey’s BBQ in Greensboro for lunch. That will probably be it for that day unless my friends enjoy it, then I might be able to work in a quick stop at Lexington #1.
Leaving Atlanta on Saturday heading north I plan stops at Skin Thrashers in Anderson, SC and Beacon Drive-In in Spartanburg, before spending the night in Charlotte, where I’m open to suggestions.
Leaving Charlotte on Sunday (with most places closed) I’m planning a leisurely drive only as far as the Chapel Hill – Durham area for the night, with the intention of hitting the Southern Seasons Gourmet Grocery first thing Monday morning. So what worthwhile places should I visit that are open on Sunday along 85?
Thanks for the help.
