After an absence from this board for maybe a year or so, I'm here to beg for your recommendations. Oh, and long time no see, too, and hope you are all doing well.
For the first time in 5 or 6 years, I'll be getting back to the states for about a month. I'll planning to indulge my every culinary whim while I'm there. I've even dropped a few pounds for the express purpose of putting it back on when I get there!!
I'll be spending probably 2 or 3 weeks in North Carolina; Charlotte, Greensboro & Raleigh.
Where should I eat??? I want it all!!! I want the best pies in the state! The thickest, juiciest hamburgers! Grits! The best biscuits smothered in the best gravy! Where are the best sandwich shops? I want Italian, too! And don't forget Mexican!! Pizza! Gotta get some decent pizza!!! Polish! Blinis! French toast made from Challah bread! Oh, and barbeque too!! Done over real charcoal!
I know I'm forgetting tons, so lay it on. But don't bother with any Japanese restaurants. I don't want to go within 50 yards of a bowl of rice or noodles, or a plate of sushi!!
I want AMERICAN food!!!
And I don't mean McDonalds, Pizza Hut or Kentucky Fried Chicken!
But fried chicken does sound good!
Where can I get some good fried chicken???
