Thanks! After posting, I thought my hopes were a little too specific, and started checking out maps and restaurants nearby. I found on the east end on our way to the trail (still in cars, just getting started) we come near Dough in a Box. They are a nice, independent doughnut shop.
So – we could start at the east end, grab coffee and a donut, then peddle west! Hmmmmm, I may not actually lose weight, lol, but we’ll have fun.
Okay, this is kind of goofy – but!!!
Anyone have roadfood or independent restaurants along I278 in Mableton, Smyrna, Powder Springs, Dallas, Rockmart, Cedartown in Georgia or Piedmont, Jacksonville, Weaver or Anniston in Alabama?
My son and I are bicycling the Silver Comet Trail in Georgia in sections, and then will hit the Chief Ladiga Trail in Alabama in sections as well. We’ve been following up our rides with a run to 5 Guys, but I’m thinking it would be a lot nicer to check out independent restaurants or roadfood type places along the trail. Since the trail is part of the old Seaboard line and roughly parallels I278, there should be choices along the way.
So – any recommendations? We’re not spandex-wearing speedsters, were just regular folks out on our bikes trying to follow a rail-trail.
Oh, and on the other end of Georgia’s part of the highway, there’s Turn Around BBQ in Tallapoosa. It was about ten years ago that I stopped in, but I remember liking it a good deal.
Wallace Barbecue in Austell comes to mind. That’s my favorite place in that area. Also in Smyrna, albeit away from 278, you could try Roy’s Cheesesteaks or the US Cafe, which does a fantastic burger.
Places along the Seaboard line, following I278 from Smyrna GA to Anniston AL?
