Motorcycle road trip: Trail of Tears: SC, Chattanooga TN, Muscle Shoals Al, Fri, 05/20/11 3:44 PM (permalink)
My Hubby and I are planning a motorcycle road trip. 9 days. Home is in Darlington County SC.  Our route will try to avoid most insterstates, and opt instead for scenic state routes.  Our route is as follows (i'll add more info as planning firms up):
night 1: Chattanooga, TN
Night 2: Muscle Shoals, AL
Night 3: Hot Springs, Ark
Night 4: Tahlequah, OK
Night 5: Mountain Home, Ark
Night 6: TBD, likely near land between the lakes KY
Night 7: TBD
Night 8: TBD
Night 9: Home again in SC
We'd like to find a lunch stop between nights and a dinner stop at the night location that has good food and local "flavor".  Any suggestions would be appreciated. 
Thanks, Angel

01 Honda Valkyrie "Gabriel" (his)

    I don't know where you should eat but I have to tell you nice choice on the bikes we ride a 2001 GL1800 and had a Valkyrie Interstate in our garage for a couple years

      For your Land Between the Lakes stop I recommend a meal at the Lake Barkley State Park lodge. The food's pretty good, but it doesn't matter because the view from the restaurant is spectacular. And I've really enjoyed breakfasts at Cadiz Family Restaurant on Main Street in Cadiz.

        From Chatt. to Florence, AL. they take I -24 W  over Monteagle and get off at the first exit. HWY 64 runs west to Fayetteville, TN.  they take there lunch break at the park.
        While in Fayetteville  would eat at HONEY'S. It is the Slaw Burgers. Right up town.
        Then they continue on to just S of my town an turn S on 43 to 72W to Florence for a couple of days.
        There is all kinds of good places there.  What kind of food do you like.
        Is this still the 3rd weekend in Sept.
