The no pork or shellfish eliminates several suggestions, among then some excellent BBQ in Roanoke.
So, here are three I recommend highly: http://www.mrsrowes.com/index.html
--- Mrs. Rowe's
is just a wonderful Southern Restaurant. Staunton, VA on 250 at the intersection of I-81 and I-64. It was there well before the interstates were built. Just search "rowe's
" in Forum Seatch and you will not only find lots good said about her, but also many prior "Roadfooder's" suggestiond for the trip you will undertake. Crozet Pizza
--- featured in USA Today as one of the 51 best in the country and rave-reviewed here and elsewhere. Crozet is just West of C'ville.
For someplace a little fancier, The Bavarian Chef
- just up 29 from Charlotessville. http://www.thebavarianchef.com/
Also, when you are in C'ville
you are only a short drive from The Inn at Little Washington: http://www.theinnatlittlewashington.com/
. I mention this because I have been "yelled at" for not mentioning that this legendary
("Google" it!) establishment is in the general area.
