Help us!!! We live in Los Angeles, hubby is a Brit and neither of us have ever been anywhere NEAR the south. We're planning a road trip (to see some Tom Waits shows and a Neil Young show). We'll be driving from Atlanta to Asheville to Memphis to Nashville to Louisville then back to Atlanta (I know---kind of a crazy route, I know but it's being dictated by the shows we're going to). Besides the music, we're REALLY excited about the food. We're not interested in chains or the fancy-shmancy----just one of a kind places to get the best barbecue, fried chicken and (most importantly in my book) desserts. We're basically dying to try all the southern classics (diets be damned!)
I've been doing loads of research on this board and feel like I have some great recommendations for most of the cities well be staying in. I'm really curious as to the places along the way, though. All the little places in between the big cities is what i'm looking for.
So....If any of you have recommendations for the most delicious food along the following routes, it would be most appreciated:
Atlanta to Asheville
Asheville to Memphis
Memphis to Nashville
Nashville to Louisville
Louisville to Atlanta
Again, thanks in advance for any help you can give us!
