Re:Austin, TX to Charlotte, NC via I20 to Atlanta and I85 to Charlotte. Where do we eat?
Blue Willow and Mamie's are quite out of the way for your route. Mary Mac's and Varasano's are good ideas, and all four and more can be found on the Marie, Let's Eat! map: http://www.communitywalk....ie_lets_eat/map/939046
Actually, while Varasano's has been said by many to have slipped a little, it was still very good on my last visit. But Fritti will also get you an excellent Neopolitan-style pie in Atlanta, and it's no more of a detour from the interstate. Antico is more popular than either, and really good, although I don't care for the service.
