out of town hound seeks decent eats near NCSU, Raleigh

hi - NY and Philadelphia chowhound here, doing some work for the week at NCSU. So, two questions: 1) easy near-campus lunches, and 2) a bit more of a radius for dinners, preferably a bit offbeat/interesting, more on the ethnic hole in the wall side than the white tablecloth one.

for #1: I see a lot of places on Hillsborough across from campus.. any suggestions? Looking for simple, ideally not too heavy/greasy lunches (though would make an exception one or two days).

For #2, I'm thinking Cooper's BBQ for one dinner, probably Raleigh Times with some local hip friends for another. I don't have a car (though friends do) and probably don't have time to go as far as Durham or Chapel Hill. What are the rumblings I read on here about good Vietnamese? Mexican? Wouldn't mind veering away from the "you're in the South, you must eat BBQ" theme, not that I have anything against good BBQ but I know the South has more diverse and interesting options as well.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
