After many miserable years of enduring horrible chain eateries along the road, I have finally found a few nice culinary diversions along I-95 (with a little help from Roadfood)…From NC to the North: Kings BBQ in Petersburg VA. Not NC BBQ, but not bad. On the US 301 exit in Petersburg (about 2 miles off 95).. Smokey Pig in Ashland VA. Once again not as good as NC BBQ, but better than Burger King/Wendy’s et al, they’re about a mile off of 95 at the Ashland exit… In the DC area YOU HAVE to detour off of 95 and visit any 5 Guys in Alexandria VA. There is one about 2 miles from the King St. exit off of 395. A short diversion for one of the finest burgers on the planet. In Baltimore, take the time to visit the Inner Harbor. Stay away from the tourist traps and make sure you visit Attman’s Deli. It’s a little bit off the beat and path, but very much worth it! Little Italy in B-more is often critcized by people who are used to NY and Phila food, but it’s the southernmost Italian neighborhod in America, and there are some OK spots. Make sure you get a box of cookies at Vaccaro’s Bakery. Along 95 there are a couple of crab joints around Aberdeen, but their names escape me. In DEL, you can’t miss the hot dogs at The Dog House on US 13 South in New Castle, just off of I-95. Ditto for the Charcoal Pit, just off of 95 North in Wilmington, on the Concord Pike exit. After 5 Guys, THE BEST BURGER ANYWHERE!! Of course Philly has Geno’s and Pat’s off of 95 in South Philly and Tony Luke’s a little further up 95 in the City of Brotherly Love…Happy Motoring..and leave the Cracker Barrell to the little old ladies on tour buses!
