We're about to do the "Trail of the Ancients" drive from Staunton, VA down I-81 to I-26 (Asheville and then Charleston, SC) to visit both sets of parents. We'll be leaving this Thursday evening, and would like to find something at about Roanoke or a little further that isn't standard national-brand "road filth". I'm open to relatively fast, moderate-to-inexpensive deliciousness of all sorts. Not too far from the Interstate, if possible (the parents don't stay up so late). My dream would be that some kind individual has opened a Pho shop in the Southern VA I-81 corridor... sorry, drifted off into my own world for a moment there.
Anything tasty- non-canned good Southern, interesting ethnic... no hamburgers, please- that's what's being avoided.
Thanks for any suggestions!
