Searching for place to stop to eat between NNJ and Toronto

Hi all--we will be traveling Friday, 9/23, between Summit, NJ and Toronto for a wedding. I'm looking for any advice about a nice, charming place to stop for a bite between, say, Binghamton and Syracuse along I-81 on the way. We can pack snacks and hold out until Syracuse if there is something worth trying there. I've eaten out a fair bit in NYC, but have very little experience with upstate NY. Road trips can make me a little queasy, so I'd prefer something that isn't very spicy, with fresh, seasonal preparations. Also, we were wondering if the Niagara Falls area is full of tourist traps, or are there any nice restaurants in that area? For lunch-style food, we'll spend 10-15, and for dinner 20-25. Is that reasonable, or should we wait until we get to Toronto for dinner? I've never been to Toronto, and I'm looking forward to checking out the food scene there. Thanks in advance!
