Dined at a great restaurant on your way down I-95 lately? Maybe you've grabbed a bite at a nice little diner. We would love to hear about it! Just use this form. This forum is dedicated to all those road warriors who have found or are looking for that perfect stop along America's East Coast Main Street... I-95!
Red Brick Station is located just off of I-95, Exit 67B. They offers large portions, great variety of choices, outdoor seating, summer concerts on the plaza, and awesome microbrews. Take Exit 67B (White Marsh), Turn LEFT on Honeygo Blvd. Turn LEFT into The Avenue (right past the light at Campbell Blvd & right across from Sears). Red Brick Station is directly in the middle of the shopping area.
This is a nice place to take the family! Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar is a national chain with a great atmosphere, a nice selection and reasonable prices. There seem to be more and more Applebee’s being built and we’ve noted that the menu varies from region to region but some of the more popular choices are common to all. They have also got a great selection for the kids.
Iron Skillet is a chain restaurant in a truck stop but it offers some of the best American food I’ve ever had. The service at this location is outstanding and there’s a terrific little retail store next door. I recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling down I-95 and looking for a good meal at a reasonable price.
I’m a sub man. Always was, always will be. On the road (I’m a salesman) I need good food fast and cheap. Blimpie’s is great food, cheap. I just whip out my Blimpie’s card, order a 12″ Blimpie’s Best and I’m good to go. It’s healthy food too… but that’s not why I like it. It’s just good
We’ve always enjoyed breakfast at the Cracker Barrel. They give you good southern food and good friendly service. They also serve lunch and dinner. We recommend this restaurant for a good hearty breakfast at reasonable prices. The rest rooms are very clean. They have a nice gift shop, and have some very charming country items.
Set back from the road and a little hard to find, Frank’s Diner is worth seeking out. This is a vintage 1959 diner moved here from its original location in New Jersey. The food is excellent. A welcome change from the chain restaurant food one usually finds while on the road. We especially liked the french fries (homemade – actually tastes like potatoes), soups, and sandwiches available on their signature sour dough bread.
Portions are generous without being wasteful. The children’s menu features chicken fingers made from real chicken breast filet) and those great french fries. The traditional formica top booths, juke boxes and stainless steel trim are a delight. The service was friendly and efficient. Frank’s is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
I was surprised to see on the Gourmet section of your web site that no one had mentioned Waffle House! Being a native of Atlanta, Georgia, I became familiar with the uniquely Southern restaurants on road trips. The slogan is “Good Food Fast”, and that’s what you’ll get! From (of course) waffles to hamburgers to grits to hashbrowns (scattered, smothered covered, chunked, topped, and/or diced), the Waffle House menu offers good food at a very low price. Eerily, every Waffle House from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, to Daytona Beach, Florida, is exactly like every other one, but at least the food, service and prices are consistent!
If you’re looking for a change from the fast-food, eat and run stop, try Denny’s. There’s all kinds of them from Virginia to Florida and many are located just off the exits.
For roughly the same price as a fast-food joint, you get to sit down and take a break and be waited on. One nice thing about Denny’s is no matter which one you visit, the menus and prices are all the same. You can get a full breakfast or lunch for under $5, or a respectable dinner for well under $10. It’s not the Ritz but not too shabby for the price.
Popeye’s Chicken and Biscuit restaurants are few and far between up here in New England, but every time we travel south on I-95 we make it a point to stop at a Popeye’s at least once. Specializing in New Orleans-style chicken, Popeye’s is the world’s second-largest quick-service chicken chain. We love it! It’s got KFC beat by a mile!
When traveling on the Interstates I look for good food cooked fast. I don’t usually stop at truck stops but this one time I decided to try the Travel Centers of America Country Pride. They have the best pancakes and coffee I have ever had !! If you ever want some good food stop at Country Pride.
