ISO fried green tomatoes in Raleigh/Durham

Any suggestions?

  1. Give Watts Grocery a call - it's not currently on the menu, but that doesn't mean it won't be next week (or that they'd be willing to make you some anyway provided they have the tomatoes).

    The Weathervane also has fried green tomatoes and cheddar cheese eggs on their brunch menu, and the daily lunch menu includes a fried green tomato BLT.

      The BBQ Joint had what I thought were the best ones around. Alas, the tax man closed them down- although I heard a rumor that they may reopen where the wing joint is near Cat's Cradle.

        The Fried Green Tomato BLT is now on Watts' lunch menu!

      2. 18 Seaboard has them on the menu.

        1. Just had this last weekend at Porter's on Hillsborough:

          fried green tomato b.l.t.
          pimento cheese, house smoked bacon, arugula, spicy mayo

          It was delicious, came with a nice side salad and for $7 was a deal.

          1. Had breakfast at the Weathervane yesterday morning, and fried green tomatoes are on the breakfast menu there too. They open at 7 am - not sure when they transition to the lunch menu; probably around 11.

            1. Not Raleigh/Durham, but Acme in Carrboro has a starter of fried green tomatoes with fresh mozzarella. The restaurant has gotten much better in the past 6 months or so.
