If anyone has any please feel free to write them.

Getting on the road to Raleigh in bout half hour.

If no recs then don't worry, Arby's along the way fits the bill :)

Just be careful about ordering ice tea. It usually comes already sweenened in NC and the rest of the south.

Well, it depends on what you want, but a high-roller like you should consider:

1) The Angus Barn: http://www.angusbarn.com/index.htm Pricey, but very good. On Highway 70 between Raleigh and Durham, near the airport, so it might be out of your way if you're going to or through the city.
2) 42nd Street Oyster Bar: http://www.42ndstoysterbar.com/ Love it. If you want seafood, here is where you want to go. A real landmark in downtown Raleigh.
3) Tir Na Nog: http://www.tnnirishpub.com/ I haven't been there personally, but have heard is good.
4) The Pit: http://www.thepit-raleigh.com/ Haven't been here either, but I'm sure it's good (I've been to a lot of similar places), and NC barbecue is like fireworks for your taste buds.

Thank you all for the tips!

Sadly I didn't get a chance to do the BBQ. Everytime I go there I say I"m gonna try BBQ but I don't have time to out of the way so much.

Well, on the way there I stopped at Arby's. Yummy Roast Beef and cheese, fries, and the latest issue of the Economist to read. Life doesn't get much better :)

Then, well, I was gonna do SOME form of BBQ but the prospective tenants I was working with insisted I come to their home for lunch, meet their aunt, etc. I'm really not that social with people I don't know....and I feel weird going to people's homes but it was kinda business, and they meant well and in some cultures it's a big deal if you turn down an invitation.

I love Thai, chinese, Indian and Japanese but have never tried Korean food. They had something called "bulgogi" and it just wasn't my thing. Anyhow, very nice people. That's one thing about business: Do business with nice people, be nice to them, and usually things are easier.

IMO, Raleigh, NC is a GREAT example of Purple America at work just like Austin, TX or Northern Virginia. Some Blue intellectualism and diversity, coupled with Red business friendly policies yields good results.

High roller? LOL

OK sometimes I like a good steak and seafood place. But overall, here are my most frequent eating places:

McDonalds

Bob Evans

Yorkshire Restaurant (great little coffee shop)

Old Country Buffet

Ruby Tuesday (salad bar)

On the Border

Duangrat's, a great Thai place.

Mr Lee's Crab place. (Don't even know the name lol, we just call it Mr Lee's place cause he owns it)

The chain or franchise names above, I ALWAYS have a coupon with me, as a rule.

But thank you very much for that list.

It'll be fun checking out the websites and menus.

Food porn, the 2nd best kind of porn :)

Sometimes the 1st best depending on my mood.

I saw this to late...

I would have said Two Guys or Mitch's on Hillsborough Street across from the NC State campus. Food is good, atmosphere is nice, and maybe a walk around campus after to work out the kinks.

I went to school at NC State and am looking forward to heading back in early August to catch up with friends. It is amazing how time flies...

ELAINE: Hey.

JERRY: Hey.

PUDDY: Sorry I’m late.

ELAINE: [full of pride] My new salesman boyfriend took me out to celebrate his promotion.

JERRY: Ah. Where’d you go?

ELAINE: [obviously embarrassed] Uh, to a restaurant.

PUDDY: Arby’s.

ELAINE: I had the roast beef...
