OK, the best cheeseburger I've ever had was at the Brickyard pub/grill/tavern/bar/whatever in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, toyman70, the wings are special at the Brickyard, too.  They use some combination of frying, and then saucing and grilling, that tastes very good.  The time I was there, we got two different flavors, but I don't remember which.

Here's one of the orders:

I believe the original poster specifically indicated that he was looking for fried chicken and burgers.
Be that as it may, although I haven't been to Parkers in about 8 years, they do serve some decent (but I wouldn't put it in the great category) Eastern NC Style BBQ.

Mrs Wilkes is a traditional "family style" southern dining room. Although the place is a classic, the food itself is very ordinary, they do have fried chicken and on my recent visit last February I found it to be nothing special.

In Richmond VA I discovered one of the best restaurants I've hit all year (and they're right off I95)



and yes, they do have some really good fried chicken.

IMHO my restaurant serves as good a burger as any place in the Country, !/2 lb, hand pattied, locally raised, slaughtered, and processed [Norman Shriver Meats], hand cut twice fried, french fries, toasted Sesame seeded 5" roll, all the toppings,....problem is I'm about 55 miles from I95, near the Pa. Md. line!

Clearly another example that you never miss an opportunity to plug your place.

Did I name my place??
I don't know what your problem is, but clearly you got many...and I would hope that if you put the blood sweat, and money into opening a restaurant, you to would plug it when possible. Your snarky attitude is well known. Since you live in Luray, why don't you continue to search for new much deeper Caverns.

By any chance were you talking about http://chubbysbbq.com/  16430A Old Frederick Road, Emmitsburg, MD‎ - (301) 447-3322‎???
 
Listen, we have many vendors who are active posters on this site.  Biker Jim, Chicago style Dogs, etc.  IMHO they add a great deal to this site, and some of us enjoy the updates on their business.  After all, in reality, they are what this site is all about.

Ok, this chicken isn't fried, but if you are lucky they will have some when you stop in. I always get the special for the day, but I am sure they always have fried chicken.



Its from the Summerton Diner right off I-95 in Summerton, SC. I really love that place. Its the one I recommend for you above others off I-95 in SC for its quality and closeness to the exit.

Otherwise Hartsville has a Yogi Bear Honey Fried Chicken that everyone here says is the best, but I can't give you my own recommendation yet. Ruths Drive in in Hartsville, has pimento cheesburgers as well, which were shortlisted as best in the state in a magazine. I have only had one smoothered in gravy. Hartsville may be further off than you want to drive.

In Florence, SC my favorite is Apple Annies. They make their own pimento cheese for their burgers, and get the home chips if you stop in:

Try Millie's Diner for some great country food at Exit 74A or Exit 74B off I 95 in Richmond, VA for great southern food.  You might find something besides a good burger.  Wandering Jew is not in favor of Millie's so  try Dairy Bar Restaurant in Richmond, VA at Exit 78 off I 95 for fried chicken.

I never said I wasn't in favor of Millie's- I've never been there- I'm merely pointing out based on their menu that they do not serve "country food" or "southern food" as you indicated.
(They do have fried green tomatos on the menu) so I stand corrected, there's at least one menu item that falls in that category.

At Exit 73 in Dunn, NC get off I 95 going W on Cumberland go about a mile take a right on General Lee and next left on Broad for some fine fried chicken at Kim's.  Don't let the name bother you.  They sell a BBQ sandwich but 99% country food.

Take Exit # 138 going S on I 95 at Nashville, NC and go W on # 64 about 6 miles to Exit # 458.  Turn back E on Western Ave. less than a mile for some outstanding BBQ at Doug Saul's.

If you don't mind driving 30 miles out of the way for the best burger's in NC get off I 95 going S at Exit 31 at St. Paul's, NC and go E. 10 miles on # 20 which is Broad St.  Turn right on # 87 and go 15 miles to # 41 and turn left.  Melvin's is on the right 4 miles up the road which is Broad St. also.  If you would rather have a nice southern lunch or dinner stop before Melvin's at Front Porch Cafe for a real southern treat.  Help yourself to the fried chicken at the buffet and some great desert then head W on Broad St. which is # 41 and go 25 miles to Lumberton, NC.  Going S to FL don't go back to St. Paul's or the way you came in as that's out of the way.  Lumberton, NC has some fine road food so be on the look out for something on your return trip.

If you don't mind driving 30 miles out of the way for the best burger's in NC get off I 95 going S at Exit 31 at St. Paul's, NC and go E. 10 miles on # 20 which is Broad St.  Turn right on # 87 and go 15 miles to # 41 and turn left.  Melvin's is on the right 4 miles up the road which is Broad St. also.  If you would rather have a nice southern lunch or dinner stop before Melvin's at Front Porch Cafe for a real southern treat.  Help yourself to the fried chicken at the buffet and some great desert then head W on Broad St. which is # 41 and go 25 miles to Lumberton, NC.  Going S to FL don't go back to St. Paul's or the way you came in as that's out of the way.  Lumberton, NC has some fine road food so be on the look out for something on your return trip. 
 
Melvin's Hamburger's @ 133 West Broad Street, Elizabethtown, NC 910 - 862 - 2763.
Front Porch Restaurant @ 1100 West Broad St., Elizabethtown, NC 910 - 862 - 3330.



Thanks, but thats a bit out of the way.
keep em coming though

I really believe one of the 11 Crystal burgers at Crystal Beer Parlor would prove to the supreme. The CBP is 77 years old and going strong.  Best place in Savannah for some good food, cold drinks and good fun.

IMHO my restaurant serves as good a burger as any place in the Country, !/2 lb, hand pattied, locally raised, slaughtered, and processed [Norman Shriver Meats], hand cut twice fried, french fries, toasted Sesame seeded 5" roll, all the toppings,....problem is I'm about 55 miles from I95, near the Pa. Md. line!


Clearly another example that you never miss an opportunity to plug your place.


Did I name my place??
I don't know what your problem is, but clearly you got many...and I would hope that if you put the blood sweat, and money into opening a restaurant, you to would plug it when possible. Your snarky attitude is well known. Since you live in Luray, why don't you continue to search for new much deeper Caverns.

 
By any chance were you talking about [link=http://chubbysbbq.com/</a></font></font></b>]http://chubbysbbq.com/<...lt;/font></b>  16430A Old Frederick Road, Emmitsburg, MD‎ - (301) 447-3322‎???
 
Listen, we have many vendors who are active posters on this site.  Biker Jim, Chicago style Dogs, etc.  IMHO they add a great deal to this site, and some of us enjoy the updates on their business.  After all, in reality, they are what this site is all about.
 
 


Danke, Joe!

If the OP is seriously considering detouring to Frederick County for a burger, my advice would be to save $3 and 30 minutes and get one just as good at Black Hog in Frederick rather than driving all the way to Emmitsburg.  Kind of a stretch to put Chubby's in this thread.

NO, it was suggested but to much of a detour. The one place I am going to try (unless otherwise told) is B & D in savannah,GA were staying there overnight and heard about this place. All the other suggestions are along the driving part of the trip, going to FLA and back to phila.
Someone also mentioned roast beef in MD chaps? any good?

Thanks again for all the responses they are mighty helpful.

  The Dairy Bar for good burgers.  Good luck.

I am hoping to get there this weekend with my sons.  Maybe for breakfast though. Definitely for a milkshake though, if we go.

Great authentic  food for a great price at Dukes Barbuecue  in Walterboro SC. All you can eat buffet is about $9  I was there 10 years ago on my drive to Fl and plan on visiting this year in Dec.  Its a couple of mins off I95. Great reviews are on various websites.

GA Pig  decent and quick in Brunswick Ga just off I95..
 
Good seafood (but usually a wait) at Dixie Crossroads in Titusville FL.
