Searching for good southern food in Raleigh. Since moving here from FL I'm not surprised that the selection of ethnic food, pizza and NY delis is weak in my slice of the suburbs. But I expected more southern food and diners! I want to find out where the best country fried steak with sausage gravy would be, and also the best biscuits and best smoked pork for sandwiches. I had smoked pork for the first time out of a friend's smoker and have been dreaming of it ever since.
I'm only interested in stuff I can find in Raleigh (preferably North Raleigh but that's probably pushing it) or Wake Forest.
One place I can recommend for general southern cookin' is Wakefield Junction in Wake Forest. Tasty free hush puppies with your meal, at least 5 different homemade pies and cakes daily, plus simple favorites.
