Seeking Traditional Southern Food in Raleigh/Durham

LaVidaComida | May 27, 2008 04:07 PM

In June we have a friend visiting from "back home" in Northern California. He is use to upscale restaurants and "new american" cuisine, so we know that he is going to want to AVOID these places for REAL southern food. Fried chicken, bbq, traditional side dishes, hush puppies etc. Problem is even after five years of living here, I am hard press to come up with a place that serves dinner and still keeps it somewhat traditionally Southern. (Which begs the questions: In our area does this food still exist? Or, is it romaticized, but long gone?)

Any suggestions for restaurants?

What I have ruled out:
- Mama Dipps
- Bullocks
- South
- Watt's Grocery
- Pop's
- Danny's
- Mo's Dinner
- Porters

Thanks for your help!
