    Tony Luke's in Phila for cheesesteaks or Italian Roast Pork with broccoli rabe.  
    DiNic's in Reading Terminal Market in Phila for Italian Roast Pork with broccoli rabe.
    MaGerk's Pub and Grill. There's one in the Federal Hill neighborhood of Baltimore, and one in Bel Air, MD,  a little north of Baltimore.  The Bel Air location is about 10 minutes west of I-95, but a lot easier to park than the one in Baltimore.  Great ham and cheese on  pretzel roll sandwich.  Pretty good Cheesesteaks on Amorosa rolls.  Great crock of tomato bisque soup with house made croutons.
    Steak & Main on Main Street in North East MD, about 3 miles south of I-95.  Exit 100.   Route 272 south toward North East.   Great Pit beef sandwich. 
    Pete's New Haven Style Apizza (pronounced "ah-beetz", like they do in CT).      Arlington, VA.  Next door to  Alexandria.     Pizza (what else?!).   Probably the worst of the New Haven style pizzas that I've had.  But the best of ANY pizza that I've had in the DC area.  Yeah, New Haven pizza in New Haven is that good.   ... And DC area pizza is pretty bad.   Pete's is pretty decent stuff.   
    Also, they have the GREAT Boylans' Cane Cola at the soda fountain.  It has a nice strong cola taste.  They have Diet Boylan's Cane Cola, as well.    Free refills.    I'd go there to drown in the Boylan's Cane Cola, even if that's all I ordered.

      Charcoal Pit in Wilmington, DE, is a classic burger/shake/fries/rings joint just north of 95 on US 202.  If you can make it to Baltimore before stopping, the Broadway Diner just west of 95 on Eastern Avenue is classic Greek/American diner food.
