Every exit will have signs for food. Since you don't know where you will be at noon, tough to be more specific.. i can honestly say it has never been an issue winging it on any US interstate.
Thanks. I figure I will be halfway through New Hampshire at around lunchtime, & by looking at the map, I see a few towns, like Lebanon, Concord & Manchester. I would like to stay away from the fast food chains like Mcdonalds, if at all possible. I appreciate the help :)
I forget the specific places but there were other than McDonalds around Hanover, NH.
Also, there is a great luncheonette in Woodstock, VT. Forget the name but right on main road about 5 miles off highway. Know you are looking to save time but if you took this short detour, you will thank me if you have never been here.
If you are as far as Manchester, then there are dozens of places just off the highway, near the airport. We stopped at a Panera. I am sure you can google the address.Edited: 8:44 pm, March 06, 2013
Awesome! Thanks very much for the help!
seafood in manchester nh if you can. for fried clams if you want to try the best - Clam King! 791 2nd St Manchester, NH 03102 . no fancy atmosphere but the best.
also great food for lunch at another place in manchester is Theo's. www.theosonelm.com/
My fiance and I did the same trip and we stopped off at the Creek House Diner in Bethel, VT, just over the NH border. It was a little off of the highway, but it was absolutely delicious!! I got a turkey sandwich that had cranberry sauce in it--and the bread was fantastic! It was so good that we hit it on the way back too--and in the middle of a snow storm, at that!! :)
Thanks very much for all the suggestions! I will definitely have some great options now!
