Road trip...

In about two and a half weeks, Im flying down to DC to pick up my MIL and drive her home to FLA (Ft Meyers area). We'll be heading down 95, cutting across 10 in Jacksonville and then down 75. Anyone want to suggest a GOOD place for this yankee boy to try some southern bbq that wont be to far off the interstate...?

Stop at Wittdog or Capt. Morgan. Both will be worth the little extra travel time!

We tried two places in Naples.

Rib City and Michelbobs.

Rib City was better.

I saw alot of billboard signs for this place called Risque Cafe in Florida. It seemed to be very popular with the truckers so the food must have been good!

When you get to Richmond, VA get onto 60 East. About exit 234 (about 30 to 40 minutes from 95) you'll see signs for Pierces BBQ. They still do it the old way over open pits. Some fine 'que there.
