Yes, I have read existing messages--tons of them. I have visited many of the recommended eateries.

So, my upcoming April road trip is not a BBQ pilgrimage, although I would love to find that "one place." Best BBQ I have had, by the way, were the pork spare ribs from Backyard Boys in Mount Dora, FL. I welcome suggestions of comparable or even better. Sorry for the BBQ tangent.

As with all of my road trips, I intend to stay off the interstates as much as possible. My basic itinerary will include Miami, Naples, Ybor, Tallahassee, onto Columbia SC. I am leaning toward Chapel Hill and then up the center of Virginia between the interstates--but I am open to other suggestions.

I am looking for wonderful independent authentic places along that route. The perfect seafood shack along the western Florida coast. What else?

Thank you.
