Anything Newsworthy Right Along i95

I'm doing I-95 Boca to New Haven ...
I've got the maps and old threads .... This time I gotta keep it within a mile or two of exits as I don't have much time.

    There area several places that begin with "Boca", but since you mentioned I-95, I assume you mean Boca Raton.  If not, let me know.  There are other places I'll mention if you're starting from Boca Grande and head toward I-95 via I-75 to I-4 to I-95.  
     
    The obvious ones near your route would be Frank Pepe's, Sally's and Modern Apizza, all not  far from I-95 in New Haven.  Also, Zuppardi's in West Haven.  
     
    Buz n Ned's on Boulevard in Richmond, VA (Get the ribs, not the pulled pork)
     
    Dixie Bones in Woodbridge, VA
     
    Tony Luke's in Philly.  It's nearly underneath I-95, but a lot of people skip that section of I-95 and take the NJTP to the east of there.  If you go, don't turn down the Italian Roast Pork.  If you are sharing with someone, one person should get a cheesesteak and the other gets roast pork, then split 'em.
     
    Unfortunately, many of the good NC 'cue places are more than a few miles off I-95.  Parkers in Wilson was once good, but has gone downhill after switching from wood to gas.  I can't think of others worth going to  within a couple miles of I-95.
     
    D&H in Manning, SC.  Good 'cue, hush puppies, and fried chicken at their "buffet".  McCabe's in Manning was even better, but they closed because of a family illness, and don't seem to have re-opened.  Might be worth checking if they have.  
     
    Smokin' Pig in Richmond Hill, GA.  Make sure you go to that location where they actually smoke their BBQ there.  Exit 87, just east of 95.  It's on the left end of a strip mall area that includes a gas station next door.  You can see the smoker in the back left corner of the strip mall.   
     
    Brickyard Lounge in Daytona Beach.  -  Great burgers, but is probably 4-5 miles off I-95.  Still worth it.  
     
    Havana Hideout -  Lake Worth, FL.   Cuban with a few twists.   Nice little courtyard to eat in.  The food is cooked in a trailer behind the courtyard.  
     
     Sorry, these are not in geographical order.  I just wrote them as they popped into my head.

    Another one fairly close to I-95 ... G&M Restaurant in Linthicum, MD.   I don't eat crabs (allergic) so can't vouch for the crabs, but I had a decent steak there, and the crab lovers love it there.

    McCabe's is planning to open soon.  One of the owners is going in for surgery tomorrow.  This is one great barbeque stop with the nicest people ever.

    That is great news!   The people there are super nice.  Do you know what had happened?  Hope it was nothing super serious.

    Although I haven't been since 2005. If you're taking the NJ Turnpike vs 95 and looking for a good Cheesesteak, then Gaetano's in Mt Laurel NJ is right off the turnpike

    Another place not to be missed is Mama J's- Gen-u-wine soul food near downtown Richmond and right off of 95
    I've been there twice and the only thing that disappointed me is that they removed the country fried steak (which is not Chicken fried steak) from their menu (which I never got to try) and only have it as a rotating special

    On my way up to or back from New York I usually stop at the Mastoris diner.  It is in Bordentown, off of exit 7 on the New Jersey Turnpike.  Great breakfasts, and very nice on-site bakery.
