A few of us are roadtripping from DC to Memphis on 4th of July weekend. I know we are staying at a Motel 6, but do not know which one. I'd like some inexpensive food recommendations for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even dessert. BBQ and southern/soul food seem like good bets. I love ethnic foods...but I don't know if Memphis can compete with DC or NYC in that regard. There is one way to find out. :) Feel free to recommend anything that is terrific as long as it isn't upscale/pricey. And, hole in the walls are fine if they are good.
We will have one vegetarian with us...but she'd go anywhere with us as long as she can get salads or sides.
