Hi folks -
I'm taking a friend of mine, who has never before experienced the delights of Southern cooking, on a short pilgrimage to experience what the South has to offer. We're looking for a variety of cheap eats, but in particular:
Texas (or other tomato based) BBQ
I'm also planning on hitting up a Waffle House or similar greasy spoon for a breakfast centered on grits (or biscuits and gravy), and a Bojangles (if possible) for some real sweet tea and a chicken sandwich (I'm from NC, so BoJ's is non-negotiable).
Would appreciate any and all suggestions - particularly for BBQ in central/western VA, but others are welcome. We'll probably make it as far west as the George Washington/Jefferson National Forests. The route is flexible.
Thanks in advance.
