Driving from Montgomery to Charleston - Good southern road food on the way?

TTuli | Mar 20, 201408:28 PM     3

Hi - I am visiting relatives near Montgomery this August. We will be a family of four visitng from San Francisco. After Selma, we will road trip to Charleston over a 2-3 days. I think we will go by way of Savannah. I know there's lots of info on Charleston and Savannah o these boards, but I'd love info on the driving part.

My question is, are there any great stops en route across Alabama on 16, or from Savannah up to Charleston? We would especially love Southern specialties - my hope is for a secret barbecue house like in N Carolina, or a fabulous biscuits or grits or hush puppies spot. Thanks so much for any help on this...

(And yes, I know August will be awfully hot, but that's when we have the vacation time to go, so it will be an educational experience for SF kids)
