So after initial skepticism, I've really taken a liking to Pam's Farmhouse for a very reasonable "meat-and-three" country cooking place for lunch. In fact, it's the best I've found in the immediate area (beats the pants off of Bullocks, etc.). I especially like Pam's veggie options (good collards, fried okra, yams) and banana pudding.
However, I've never been to Big Ed's near downtown Raleigh, which some people swear by. My work is closer to Pam's, so I'm just wondering if Big Ed's is better, and if so, is it significant enough to justify the longer drive?
