Road Food: Dining with the Griswolds

It's spring break for the Griswolds Foxes, and this weekend, we're loading up the family truckster minivan and driving up 'e country, as my people say, to visit kinfolk in the Middle of Nowhere. The route to our own particular MON leads east on 40 until we ultimately take a left toward Appomattox, Va. It's about an eight-hour drive--less if you're Christie Brinkley in a red Ferrari--but we're budgeting closer to 24 hours, just in case. We have a lot of poop issues. Plus, we've been trying to find time to watch High School Musical 16 times in a row.

Anyway, this is all to say that I will be out of pocket for the next week as we wind our way to Virginia, stopping along the way in Asheville, N.C., maybe Gatlinburg, maybe Lynchburg, Va. We'll for sure dine at Aunt B.'s in Appomattox, and you can bet I'll file a thorough report on my return, but other than that, we don't have many plans.

Anyone got any spots--dining or otherwise--we should hit along the way?
