Franken Stube – Emporia, VA

We found this restaurant when looking for something that was not fast food or a chain. They have limited hours (Wednesday – Friday 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm and open Saturdays and Sundays at Noon.

Franken Stube is definitely worth planning a meal during those hours, especially if you like German food! Great schnitzel and sausage dinners!

Franken Stube is located on Atlantic Street, about 1/4 mile east of I-95, exit 11 in Emporia, Virginia.

Gwen & Franny’s Fried Chicken, Soul Food & Bar-B-Q – Hardeeville, SC

Gwen and Franny’s is just a little hole in the wall but wonderful food!

They have excellent fried chicken, corn muffins, baked beans, mac and cheese, cole slaw and service! The foot traffic never stopped with locals coming in for carry-out orders and there were several other tables filled with travelers on a Monday afternoon!

These ladies know what they are doing and do it well!

Gwen and Franny’s Fried Chicken is located on US 17, about 1 mile west of I-95, exit 5 in Hardeeville, South Carolina

Ship2Shore Seafood and Steaks – Kingsland, GA

We stop in Kingsland quite often on our way back to Florida after visiting family in Maryland and Ship2Shore Seafood and Steaks is a wonderful end to a day on the road.

Recently we had Ribeye (done to perfection) and the large fried shrimp (hardly any batter) and both meals were wonderful. Yes, it could be considered a chain as there are two other locations in Jacksonville, FL but so much better than dining at yet another Applebee’s or Cracker Barrel.

Ship2Shore Seafood and Steaks is located on GA 40, approximately 2 miles east of I-95, exit 3 in Kingsland, Georgia.
