My SO's cousin and his wife from Madrid are going to be taking a few days to do a roadtrip from Tampa, FL to Chapel Hill, NC this summer. Any suggestions for places of interest, both chow-worthy and otherwise? I've done the trip many times but always on the Interstate eating mainly at Waffle House...
He's Spanish, so I'm thinking pork and barbeque are a must. He's got a cousin in Atlanta, so that's a possible stop along the way. He's also got a somewhat romantic notion about taking an "American Roadtrip"--though he also has a bit of trepidation (perhaps he's seen Easy Rider...). I just want to make sure they get to see and eat the best of what the south has to offer.
Any suggestions on possible routes, stops along the way, places to eat, areas of particular interest to Spaniards would be greatly appreciated!
P.S. I'm going to send him a copy of Roadside America and perhaps the Stern's guide. Any other ideas?
