I will be traveling the turnpike south this week with my family (which includes a 3yo, 16yo, and an 82yo, as well as two forty-somethings)...looking for some places to eat that are close to the turnpike and not McD's...more of a sit-down restaurant that we can use as an hour or two break from the ride as well as a good meal. Either national/regional chains or great local places will do.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If you exit onto I-195 (exit 7A?) and almost immediately exit onto Rt. 130 South, there will be the Hamilton Marketplace directly on your left. Take the jughandle to get to it. There are chain restaurants - Cracker Barrel, Chili's, and Ruby Tuesday's - as well as a great Italian place called Leonardo's (to the right of the WalMart). There is a Chinese buffet and Dairy Queen Grill, and a Cold Stone Creamery, too. I would go to Leonardo's, the food and service are very good. Assuming you were planning on taking the Turnpike all the way through NJ, when you leave the complex you can get on I-195 West and 4-5 miles down the highway, take I-295 South. It will take you to the Delaware Memorial Bridge and merge with I-95; it is just as quick as the Turnpike and you won't have to pay a toll.

It depends where you want to stop. If you want to stop smack in the middle of NJ, you can't beat Christina's answer. I totally agree.

If you want to stop further south, Exit 4 has many places to eat right on Route 73 which the exit pulls you onto. You would take the sign for 73 South towards Berlin and in a couple of feet you will see: Denny's, Bennigan's, Sage Diner and behind that there is Macaroni Grill and one of the Mexican places, I think it's On the Border.

These are all great, thank you.

Any ideas for places near exits 8-11? We'll be coming off the Garden State and I was thinking about stopping at that point, depending on what's around there...

FROM NEW JERSEY TURNPIKE

Take Turnpike to Exit 10 and bear right after the toll plaza. Take Highway 514 West and follow signs to Highland park/Raritan Center. Stay in two right lanes and follow curved road to the light. Make a left onto King Georges Post Road. The Holiday Inn Hotel and Harold's will be on your left.
