Raleigh "Junk" Food tour - suggestions?

fatstern | Jan 27, 2007 06:17 AM

This is how its gonna go -- my buddy and i are gonna jump in the car, head to raleigh from chapel hill, and spend a bunch of hours roaming the town and stuffing ourselves sick - in a good way (?). This idea started as a hotdog tour, but then we figured we'd hit up some distictly raleigh institutions, trying out what they are famous for. It started when i read on chowhound about The Roast Grill (a raleigh institution) whose famous hotdogs will be stop #1. My bud has eaten Snoopy's previously and says those doggies are pretty damn good, so we figured we'd compare. He has never had Char-Grill, yet another old school Raleigh joint, so we're throwing that in the package deal as well. The only other place i can think of off-hand is the Raleigh Farmer's Market Seafood Restaurant for some fresh fried underwater goodness.

What we're looking for is the best of the worst-for-you raleigh has to offer. Any more suggestions? Obviously, none of this is unique food, but distictly Raleigh. Classic raleigh BBQ joints that really are still good (whats that don murray place - is that what its called?)? Dessert? we have no dessert locations, a suggestion would be nice there..... and I dunno - maybe some ethnic joints that have been established for some to any and all suggestions, and feel free to suggest stuff that strays from the junk food theme (just for our own info)......

thanks y'all....
