#180768 - 06/30/05 10:30 AM North Carolina Bound  

Leaving at 3 am for the airport ofr NC for 2 weeks. All you North Carolilnians out there - I'm looking for restaurant recs in Charlotte - 2 categories: 1) great wine list 2) great BBQ.

Also any must sees on the road between Charlotte and the Cedar Island ferry? rented a house on Ocracoke for the second week - what's not to be missed?

Hoochie, yo know the only place you will find GREAT BBQ, is in Texas ! That stuff they serve "Up North" in NC, isn't fit for land fill. (I'm gonna catch it now) laugh

if you pass through Mayberry, don't miss this

If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never tried before.

You Dog - had me all excited until I read this:

North Carolina > All counties > Surry County > Mayberry

Setting for the 1960s TV program, "The Andy Griffith Show"
The Mayberry spirit is rooted in Griffith's hometown, Mount Airy, NC, where you can still get a porkchop sandwich at the Snappy Lunch. The city celebrates Mayberry Days each September

. . . if only we were going in September . . .

Sorry I couldn't help you with outer banks recommendations when you asked a few months ago (never having been myself), but I can give you a few recommendations on barbecue. Some may be practically on the way, others may be a slight detour:

Shelby (about 45 minutes from Charlotte on I-85): Alton Bridges Barbecue or Red Bridges Barbecue. Two different styles, both good pork barbecue. In addition, Alton Bridges has a good barbecued chicken as well.

Lexington: various barbecue restaurants reputed to be good (right off I-85).

Durham, N.C.: "Old North Carolina Barbecue"--good pork barbecue and a great buffet--well, at least it was when I used to frequent it in college 10 years ago.

Calabash, N.C.: Numerous good restaurants with buffets that have a good balance of seafood and pork barbecue.

Hope this helped.
