In Athens, TN, I would suggest you visit the mayfields dairy museum. Great stop and a bargain on their great ice cream. Probably more than you can eat for a very cheap rpice and their ice cream is super.
In Huntsville, AL, I definately suggest that you try the ribs at Dreamland. Many on this site have visited one of their sites. The ribs are great and their sauce is super. Get it on the side and use it for dipping not only with your ribs but with your bread.
Downtown Chattanooga is a hoot. Too many places close to the acquarium to discuss. Many are very good.
After you leave Bowling Green, I would suggest you stop in Owensbor KY for the Moonlite BBQ where the Glee club will be visiting this coming week end with an attendance of about 30 roadfood folks. My suggest there is do not eat breakfast and do their buffet. The place is huge and very good. It is the Mayor’s favorite. I agree that it is very good.
