I will be going to the Outer Banks for the first time in two weeks and was looking for any recommendations for food along the way. Considering it will be roughly 8 hours we'll probably be stopping for either two meals or 3 or 4 quick bites. I was considering Ben's Chili Bowl for a half-smoke or maybe Coal Fire Pizza in Ellicott City.
What I would really love is some good Carolina barbecue but I haven't had any luck finding decent spots along the way. Any recommendations? Doing a quick route via google maps it looks like we'll be skirting Baltimore, D.C., Richmond, and Norfolk before crossing into eastern N.C.
Thanks for your help.
