Atlanta to Indianapolis I-75, I-24, I-65

Later this month, we will be driving to Indianapolis. Where is the roadfood along our route? We will take I-75 to Chattanooga, I-24 to Nashville and I-65 to Indianapolis.

    I suggest a lunch stop at the Curly Dog,exit 76 off I-65 in Edinburg Indiana.This would be about 25 miles south of Indianapolis.You can get their unique (at least in my experience) curly hot dog,plus the place is about as roadfood as you can get.Its been around for like 50 years,since way before they changed the name of the town to "Edinburgh".I'm still not sure what they were thinking when they did that.

    If the tips are still needed, see if Prince's Fried Chickem is still in operation in Nashville. They had an unusual recipe - the crust apparently was about half red pepper. And the Lovelace (Loveless?) grill is there with good biscuits, breakfast, Southern food. Undoubtedly the search function will find references for the latter.

    There's quite a Mexican district in Dalton, Walnut Ave area. All local, including an excellent grocery store.
    Downtown Chattanooga offers quite a few excellent dining choices of all kinds, too.

    Hot Chickens is at exit 92 just north of Nashville. Famous for their chicken, it's a small place that does more carry out business that anything but they do have a lot of seating inside. You can get your chicken as hot or mild as you like! I don't like or eat chicken but have been there many times with a group. I get the cheeseburger and fried corn, it's good. It is NOT a frozen patty!

    The Kreme House, exit 11 on I-75 in Ooltewah, TN is an outstanding roadfood spot. Excellent downhome food, friendly service.
    Also, there are a couple of Dinner Bell restaurants located closer to Knoxville, around Sweetwater, Lenoir City that I've always wanted to try but never have. Maybe Sundancer could comment on this.
