We are two California Hounds who are going to embark on a roadtrip down the East Coast and are looking for any great stops along the way. We're starting in Washington DC and driving down I-95 through NC, SC and Georgia - to I-10 in Jacksonville and then over to Destin, FL. We'll definitively veer off the road up to 30 miles or so for a great meal. We'll probably stop for a night or two in either Charleston/Savannah/Beaufort (would love suggestions on which has the best food and atmosphere).
We aren't looking for anything fancy - just great food. Definitely nothing that would require anything other than casual attire. Any type of great boiled peanut or fruit stand or whatever would be welcomed too. I have great childhood memories of family roadtrips through the South and stopping at wonderful little roadside places for boiled peanuts or BBQ, etc.
Thank you so much for your suggestions. I know they will make our trip very memorable.
