Big Oak Drive-In vs. El's Drive-In, NC

Had a shrimpburger at both places this weekend. While they were both very good, the slaw at El's was better (more flavoerful and tangy), so I have to give it a higher ranking.

As an aside, I was surprised to find them both made with calabash-style shrimp, which I assume weren't local, fresh shrimp. Maybe in the summer they use larger, local ones?

In any event, they are good eating!
