Any suggestions for good country cooking, like Fried Chicken, chicken n dumplings, ect. I will be going to the Barb ques, of course, and Snappy Lunch, but any other places I should know about?

    Bullocks BBQ in Durham is a true Roadfood southern experience...order family style and be hungry. Lexington BBQ (Monks)in Lexington and Stameys in Greensboro are generally great. Interestingly enough, the small K&W cafeteria chain has great southern breakfasts (PANCAKES are the best I have ever eaten) and their other meals are pretty good sampling of the south.

        If you get to the northwestern NC mountains, "Greenfield's" and "Shatley Springs" in Jefferson serve great fried chicken (as well as country ham, country vegetable sides and desserts), as does the "Daniel Boone Inn" in Boone. I can give suggestions for other parts of the state if you tell us where you will be.

          I am now sold on Cooper's BBQ's fried chicken in downtown Raleigh. It is very crunchy and flavorful when hot, but does not reheat that well. I also like Dallas' Chicken & Biscuits in Apex on 55.

              Oh well, I was going to recommend places farther afield.

              I'll agree with the recommendation on Bullocks for fried chicken in Durham. Good sides, but the BBQ is not as good as other places. Also, in Chapel Hill, Four Corners has good fried chicken and sides. Don't be put off by the atmosphere, as it is located in a strip shopping center near college dorms (Granville Towers) but the food is very good. Best cabbage I've ever had. I even got my wife and daughter, who both turn their noses up at the mere thought of cabbage, to indulge.

              Also, when in Winston, don't forget to stop by Dewey's bakery for some good Mennonite baked goods. There are three locations around town.

                Of course, it's generally a good idea to search the reviews posted on the site already.

                Here's a link to the search results for all reviewed restaurants in NC
                http://www.roadfood.com/Search/SearchResults.aspx?ps=1&s=NC&c=&kw=&ob=ri.restaurantname

                Hollyeats.com also maintains a good set of reviews of Carolina Barbeque joints:
                http://www.hollyeats.com/NorthCarollina.htm

                and other NorthCarolina eats as part of his 'South" page:

                  There are 2 good places in Kernersville (between Winston Salem and Greensboro), on highway 66 just south of the exit off I-40 business. They can also be reached by taking exit 203 off I-40 bypass and going North about 2 miles. My personal preference is "Suzie's Diner", but "The Kerners House Restaurant and Cafeteria" is also very good. I can never pass by without stopping at "Suzie's", unless I am heading to or from "Lexington # 1" barbecue.

                  You can also get some of the best hot dogs ever at "Zack's" in downtown Burlington. A sit down restaurant that specializes in hot dogs with a wide variety of toppings. ALWAYS busy, and famous across the region.

                  And I agree that "Bullock's" in Durham puts out some fine southern cooking.

                    Great Fried Chicken places - Keaton's Bar-B-Q, near Statesville, NC. Check out their web site

                    Hursey's Bar-B_Q , Burlington, NC, actually broasted chicken.

                      If you want some of the best southern country cooking to be found, drive on 25 miles east of Durham to Raleigh and eat at "Big Ed's" in the "City Market" (or his son's restaurant at the Farmer's Market).

                        King Chicken on Rt. 17 in Washington, NC (Little Washington)on the Pamlico River is a very popular, local take-out spot. I haven't been there for a few years, but I assume it's still there. Best fried chicken around!
