          Gerald, your trip should only take you as far east as Atlanta on I-20, then south 90 minutes down I-75 to Macon, and then east out I-16 for the last leg, so Littleman's last set of suggestions would be pretty far out of your way, as nice as a trip to the Blue Willow Inn would be.

          One unfortunate note is that there is virtually nothing on I-16 whatsoever, save Jomax Barbecue in Metter  (exit 104), so you'll want to stop in Macon for a last chance, perhaps Bear's Den (http://marieletseat.blogs...ears-den-macon-ga.html ) or Nu-Way.  I can recommend all three of these places, and each is reviewed here on the site (http://www.roadfood.com/R...&ob=restaurantname ), as is Southern Pit in Griffin, which a little off the interstate and out of the way, but very good.

          If you did want to sample Blue Willow Inn, and indeed you should, it is doable but a little out of the way to get down to I-16.  You'd go through Atlanta about 45 minutes east on I-20 to Social Circle, then return to I-20 and go about 40 more miles east to exit 138, GA-77.  About a mile south of that exit, 77 merges into GA-15.  Follow that 84 miles south and you'll enter I-16 at exit 71.  Thirty more miles and you're at Jomax, marveling at how in the world a state like Georgia's been settled for as long as it has and built so much nothing in all that time.  On GA-15, you'll also pass through Sparta, one of the poorest towns in America, and if its dilapidated-but-populated town square doesn't pop your eyes right out of your head, nothing will.

                    I am planning a road trip to Savannah GA from Dallas TX on I-20 E.  I wanted to know where to eat a long the way?

                     
                    I've made that trip twice.  What you do is go to the Restaurants tab above and search for each state you are going through.  You decide how far off of the interstate you are willing to go, and then you look for places that fit that criterion.  Lastly, you come back there and ask if you have any specific questions.  There are a number very close to I-20 in Mississippi, Alabama and Atlanta.
