    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). http://www.wattsgrocery.com/

    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. http://www.southernseason.com/menu.as...

      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.

          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.

            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.

              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.

                    The state farmer's market at the corner of lake wheeler and centennial parkway. The fried green tomatoes are available during lunch.

                      thanks so much - living on the other side of the area, I don't know much about Raleigh. Good to know about the restaurant - what a nice perk.

                  The Flying Biscuit at Cameron Village has a FGT sandwich and a FGT salad.
