Not sure which board to post this on so will do it on several.
We travel from NY (Westchester) to Southern Maryland (Calvert County) a few times a year and it never fails that we need to stop toward Northern Maryland and end up at Chesapeake House or, heaven forbid, one of the rest stops on the NJ tpke closer to Delaware than New York.
The food is awful, expensive for what it is and it's always a miserable experience. We'd love to find some great, casual places to stop for good eats that won't take us more than few miles off the road.
Grateful for the help.
