Restaurants serving turkey in Raleigh/Durham/Ch. Hill area?

Not referring to any special Thanksgiving sorta thing, just places that have *real* roast turkey as part of their menu.

I don't want anything fancy, but it would just be lovely to satisfy that occasional craving for a plate of turkey, potatoes, gravy, etc. It seems that nobody really does this anymore... most places have something they *call* turkey, & servers will even doggedly assure you this is *real* turkey, when it is so obviously not (at least not from a whole bird).

Elmo's Diner has the closest thing I've found to what I'm looking for, but even theirs is more of an open-faced turkey sandwich sorta deal. :( Close, but no cigar.

How frustrating is this? One of the most basic, classic meals seems to be nearly extinct except for on Thanksgiving. I can't be the only one out there who still longs for food like I grew up with!

Please help! Thanks in advance!! :)

  1. Not the most exciting place in the Triangle but K&S Cafeteria frequently has it. It is carved in the kitchen and set up as individual servings along with stuffing and gravy in a pan and sent out to the line.
