Where should I spend my per diem in Fayetteville and/or Goldsboro?
Hey, I'm gonna be in Fayetteville, NC on business for the first three days of next week and I've got $25 a day for food, which I plan to save up for one nice meal each day.
I wanna find, in one or both towns:
A good non-chain pizza place, where the pies are big and greasy
A good place for NC barbecue (don't care which style, just not Smithfield, lol)
A good authentic ethnic place, preferably a hole in the wall. I spent some time on post there years ago and I thought Fayetteville was actually pretty cosmopolitan. I seem to remember getting good Thai food, for example.
Who can help me out? Please, I don't wana eat grocery store sushi for three days ;)
Hole in the wall "ethnic": I would go to La Cuata, about 5-10 minutes south of Goldsboro on 117 Alt in Dudley. It's a place that's better to check out on the weekend, but even during the week they often have good specials. You may need to ask during the week, though. Previous discussion:
If you want to try a random taqueria, there are a ton of them on 111 going south from Goldsboro.
Wilber's is a good rec for barbecue, although I prefer Grady's in Dudley when comparing Goldsboro area places. I think that Grady's may open up for the week on Wednesday, but you should call and check. Wilber's is open all week.
@walras Thanks, Wilber's was already on my list. Bonus, its five minutes away from the store we inventory that day :)
My friends in town have recomended a place called the German Diner, as well as Brooklyn Pizzeria and either BBQ Hut or Patterson's. Anybody heard of those?
