Heading from Philly down to Edenton, NC (northeastern shore of NC) for a long weekend in a few weeks. Seen some pretty good recommendations on ChowHound for eats in North Carolina and this post http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/726486 on dinners/BBQ along Eastern Shore of Virginia.
BUT - we're going to be in the car mostly in Delaware, briefly in MD, and then Virginia. Need only breakfast/brunch and lunch places. We can shift our timing and our route slightly (1 instead of 13 or 113 instead of one or the other) for the right food, but won't stray too much from those routes. On this trip, not looking to detour an additional 30 minutes for breakfast/lunch.
Search hasn't revealed much along that corridor. Am I stuck with Waffle House? Since I can't fully control where/when we'll be along the route, can you also indicate if a place is good/fine for eats, and if something is epic/worth a detour. I may have some influence over the trip since I'm the one driving!
