Everybody's already touched on the Fortify work going on on I-40. The only issue on that route is that I-95 between Florence and Fayetteville will absolutely put you to sleep (South of the Border and Lumberton aside). I used to go that way going back home to Columbia and always hated that part of the trip. Not really. It's one of the main connections between Raleigh and Cary - there's not much immediately around that area in terms of stuff to eat in that immediate area (Sheetz and a McDonalds, if I recall correctly), but if you go into Cary or Raleigh you should be good to go. If you're at all a fan of Greek/Lebanese cuisine, check out La Shish in Cary. Delicious and everything's made fresh.
