Road trip lunch near-ish to Charlotte

Hey all -

I'm taking a week-long road trip from NYC to Savannah pretty soon, and I've mapped out all my meal stops except one. I'm going to push from Savannah to Roanoke, VA in one day, and I'm planning on stopping for lunch somewhere in the general vicinity of Charlotte. I don't particularly want to go anywhere in downtown Charlotte, as it's going to be a long day of driving and fighting with city traffic and lunch crowds doesn't really appeal to me. I'm looking for something along I-77, within, oh, about half an hour either way of Charlotte (just for the timing of it) and I'm trying to keep my meals pretty Southern-oriented. I live in NYC, so I can get most things *except* good country cooking up here. Diners/dives/vaguely sketchy local joints most welcome, as long as I don't actually end up with Shigella. I'm not crazy about NC style BBQ, but I'm willing to be proven wrong if you know of somewhere that'll knock me on my ass.
