A good friend and I are heading next month from DC to Charleston (via 95) and back the long way (77 and 81). We are big fans of the Stern's "Roadfood" and "Eat Your Way" books (plus the Roadfood.com site) and are looking for pans (if any) on those places and additional suggestions. We're zeroing in on good BBQ, drive-ins, seafood, country cookin' and soul food and avoiding the fine dining this time around.
Also, though this is off the subject a bit, any tips on cool pop culture/Americana stops would also be appreciated. I know that's a lot, but thanks!
