Best Southern Food in Triangle area?
I have a friend coming to visit me in Raleigh for a week from the Minneapolis area - she wants to experience true southern food. I would like to try and stay away from the upscale places (from a budgetary perspective) and would appreciate some input! I've heard great things on this board about the Pit in downtown Raleigh - and not such good things about Mama Dips, unfortunately. Any suggestions re: good fried chicken, etc., would be welcome. Thanks!
For bbq, go to Allen and Son between CH and Hillsborough. For traditional southern fare, go to Joyce & Family in Fuquay-Varina.
Also worth going to
Holden's BBQ in Youngsville very good BBQ and a lot closer to Raleigh, the hours can be tricky so call first, 582 Us 1 Hwy, Youngsville - (919) 556-3607
Murphy House, in Louisburg, Good Country buffet and worth the drive. Just like The Old Place
