    Well, if you pass through Gulport/Biloxi I'd suggest a stop in at the White Cap restaurant down on the beach in Gulfport. Great local seafood from folks who've been running the White Cap as long as I can remember. You might also stop in at 'Lil Ray's for a Po' Boy or some gumbo. Always have had a good food experience there.
     
    In New Orleans don't miss a trip to the Creole Creamery for ice cream. Made on site and just the best thing you could have. I'm also a big fan of the Acme Oyster House. They have great hush puppies and the best red beans and rice I've ever had in New Orleans. And oysters. Yeah! It's really hard to find a bad place to eat in NOLA. Well, except for River's Edge across from the Cafe' DuMonde. Lousy breakfast. The Cafe' on the other hand is always good for breakfast and coffee.
     
    We tried Ralph and Kacoo's last time we were there. The food was pretty good, if a bit pricy.

      Doing it non-stop or stopping overnight? Leasure ride or fast as possible? That determines where we can suggest. More time, more options.

            If there is one place I would think of as a "must visit", it would be the Brick Pit in Mobile.  I think this is on the short list of best bbq parlors in the country.  Fantastic ribs!  Another Mobile highlight is Wintzell's, for oysters and that wonderful local side, West Indies Salad.

                        do eat before leaving Orlando.  Slim pickin's past Gainesville on I-75 and on to Pensacola via I-10.  Mostly fast food stops.   If you need to stop on I-75 before I-10 there's Mike's Grille, just off exit 427 in lake City that would be an easy on-off for that area.   Without gett ing off I-10 and heading 15-20 minutes out of your way, around Live oak, you'll be hard pressed to find any thing decent.  In Tallahassee, off exit 203 then left about a 1/4 mile on your left is a Ted's Montana with a good burger.  There's a couple of good sandwich places around that exit too.  But you need some driving directions.  If interested, let me know.  It'll take you about 4-4.5 hours to get to Tallahassee from Orlando and Pensacola is another 3 hours away.

                          I'm probably too late to this party, but I recently stopped at Pouncey's in Perry, FL, and got the pork BBQ sandwich, which had lightly smoked, tender slices of pork on it, with a mustard-based BBQ sauce on the side.  I loved it.  They have two other sauce types to choose from as well.  Address:  2186 S Byron Butler Pkwy, Perry, FL

                                If there is one place I would think of as a "must visit", it would be the Brick Pit in Mobile.  I think this is on the short list of bbq parlors in the country.  Fantastic ribs!  Another Mobile highlight is Wintzell's, for oysters and that wonderful local side, West Indies Salad.

                                 
                                Yes indeed, the Brick Pit is fantastic!
