On my trip to the capital of North Carolina, I had the awesome experience of going on a guided food tour through the downtown area of Raleigh. Taste Carolina Gourmet Food Tours planned an entire afternoon for me that included five eateries ― each of which was distinctively delicious.

Raleigh is home to award-winning restaurants, creative chefs, breweries, local hotspots, as well as restaurants steeped in history. I was surprised to learn, after chatting with several Raleigh entrepreneurs (who also tend to be chefs and owners themselves), that each of them not only wants success for themselves and their businesses, but also for the community.

Each of the spots I visited utilized local ingredients from their next-door neighbors. The produce, dairy, and more come from local outposts, and moreover, each restaurant will openly boast about how awesome their fellow chicken farmer or tomato grower is.

Centro
Our first stop on the tour was Centro, a lively and welcoming Mexican restaurant. Centro looks like a colorful work of art. Framed portraits, paintings, intricately designed masks, and vibrant creations cover the already bright walls. There are many Mother Mary, crosses, and Jesus depictions adorning the restaurant, as well as hanging, glowing lanterns and rainbow papel picados.

The food is authentic Mexican and Latin American cuisine; the menu ranges from enchiladas and tamales to chilaquiles and tostadas, and, of course, craft margaritas, mezcals, and cocktails.

Owner and chef Angela Salamanca decided to whip us up a special item for us to try: arepas with chicken salad and a side of plantain black beans. The warm, buttery arepa was filled with a fresh, flavorful chicken salad ― which couldn’t be more different from the mayonnaise-laden goop sold in many grocery stores.

Originating from Colombia, Salamanca explained that she chose to serve us arepas in order to highlight how each region and state has its own version of the cornmeal bread. Each interpretation of what makes an arepa authentically “good” is reflective of the area’s heritage and culture.

Gravy
Our next stop was to Gravy, a family-friendly Italian-American eatery that specializes in quality, locally sourced fare. What’s gravy? According to the pasta experts here, “gravy” is “the pasta sauce that their [Italian-Americans] mothers and grandmothers cooked fresh every night.” This restaurant offers crowd-pleasing classics such as house-made gnocchi with mushrooms and a leek cream sauce; tagliatelle a la Bolognese with local beef and pancetta Bolognese and house-made ricotta; as well as authentic, cheesy, layered lasagna.


Chef Justin Bartolet treated us to an off-the-menu creation: espelette mezzaluna, moon-shaped pasta filled with smoked ham and served with poblano pepper sauce and marinated tomatoes. We also enjoyed a wine pairing that complemented the salty, smokiness of the pasta. Fun fact: Gravy butchers its own whole-hog meat in the kitchen and uses each hog’s meat entirely — as in nothing goes to waste — in dishes that range from traditional pasta sauces to head cheese and more.

The Roast Grill (Hot Weiners)
This was a very special ― and unexpected ― stop on this culinary adventure. The Roast Grill has been in business since 1940, strictly selling hot dogs and glass-bottle Cokes only (plus its famed authentic Greek desserts). This hot dog eatery has been run with the same dedication and love by the same family since it first opened.

The only things that are allowed to go on these dogs are The Roast Grill’s famous chili, mustard, slaw, and onions ― ketchup is forbidden. Why? Founder Mary Charles and host George Poniros will tell you that “it interferes with the chili!”

This nostalgic spot has been visited by everyone from Elvis Presley to Man Vs. Food’s Adam Richman. "You won't find generic ball-park dogs here,” said the famous eating machine. “At the Roast Grill, every frank is 90% beef with just a bit of lean pork flavor, uniquely cooked to a crisp black char on their 70 year old original grill."

Lucettegrace
Lucettegrace is a lovely patisserie that offers French-inspired savory and sweet pastries, lunch items, and indulgent desserts. This welcoming downtown spot has a bright, industrial design that’s accented with bright yellow stools, chairs, and freshly picked flowers.

Pastry chef/owner Daniel Benjamin features outrageously fabulous treats such as the candy bar cake (almond cake with milk chocolate praline crunch, and a dark chocolate hazelnut mousse); the escazu PB pretzel cake (escazu dark chocolate mousee, caramel cremeux, and a peanut butter crunch — I tried this, but a brownie version with coffee mousse and gold flakes); and a blueberries + cream vanilla cheesecake with a blueberry mousse, pistachio cake, almond cake, and a blueberry compote.

Savory items are equally tasty and inventive, and include items like bacon jam and cheese Danish and buttermilk scones filled with pistachios, figs, and cardamom. I also had the pleasure of tasting one of the fresh peach ice cream macaroon sandwiches, which was heavenly.

Bittersweet
Bittersweet is an excellent spot for people who are into cocktails, desserts, and coffee (that’s everyone, right?). This charming eatery/ lounge has a slightly retro feel and is beautifully designed with a classic bar, back wall filled with all sorts of colorful spirit bottles — especially gin ― cocktail glasses, espresso-makers, coffee cups, and barista equipment. Of course, it also has freshly baked goods lining the countertop.

Owner and baker Kim Hammer got her start baking for friends, and then one day it became clear that there was a demand for her goodies. Hammer began commercially baking straight from her kitchen and began selling her home-baked goods throughout the Triangle-area, including at the famed Carrboro Farmers Market.

From there she made her passion into a full-time job by opening a “terribly wonderful dessert, coffee and cocktail lounge” that offers all seasonal treats and complex, innovative flavor combinations. Also noteworthy ― she has some of the most badass tattoos I’ve ever seen. My favorite? Her dagger-through-the-heart tattoo with one, wonderful word: butter.

Here Are 8 Incredible Places You Can Eat In North Carolina For Less Than $10

Dining on a budget? No worries in North Carolina. With plenty of hole-in-the-walls offering reasonable prices for amazing food, you can leave with a full belly and slightly full wallet. I’ve always liked to believe high prices sometimes don’t reflect high quality, and the scrumptious fare you’ll find at these eight restaurants echo just that.

A Raleigh establishment and landmark since 1940, their famous hot dogs have received a lot of hype (including a visit from Adam Richman of Man Vs. Food) throughout the years, but the prices always stay reasonable. Enjoy an all-the-way hot dog for just $1.45, at that rate, you could have six and make breakfast lunch and dinner out of this meal, while still having some wiggle room for tip.

7 S West St Raleigh, NC 27603

Enjoy some of the freshest seafood right on the Intracoastal at the well-known Provision Company. While many seafood joints up the prices (due to location and quality) you can dine well for under ten bucks. A crabcake sandwich rings in at just $5.95 or you can enjoy 1/4 lb. steamed shrimp for only $6.96.

130 Yacht Basin Drive Southport, NC 28461

It's hard to believe a sandwich this famous is priced so reasonably, but that's one of the many amazing things about Snappy Lunch. A favorite of Andy and Barney, this 'Mayberry' establishment is known for their pork chop sandwich featuring pancake-batter-fried pork chop, sweet chili, mustard and coleslaw. The sandwich plus drink will ring you around $6 bucks, quite a steal! While looks might be deceiving, the sandwich is rich and filling. If you're not so crazy about pork, they offer other delicious options like burgers and sandwiches for under $10 bucks. After your meal, take time to walk off that pork chop and explore the charming town of Mount Airy, including an authentic squad car tour straight out of Andy Griffith. You'll certainly be shouting, "Citizen's Arrest!"

125 N Main St Mount Airy, NC 27030

This beloved BBQ establishment has kept its recipes, interior and exterior relatively the same since first opening in 1949. A place I always asked my grandparents to take me to while visiting them as a child, there's something about Short Sugar's that just stays with you (and has you craving it time and time again). Try a classic BBQ sandwich (sliced is $4.25 while chopped is $3.95) and pair it with hushpuppies for only $1.80. Save some change for a classic-style milkshake (vanilla or chocolate) ringing in at just $3 bucks.

1328 S Scales St Reidsville, NC 27320

Frequented by both penny-pinching college students and sandwich-loving locals, South College Deli offers stellar food for a reasonable price. If you're like me, you can even make two meals out of it and take the other half of your sandwich home (trust me, they pile meats, cheeses and toppings high here). Their signature is Beef on Weck that comes with a side of your choice (get the chips) for only $7.95. Other delicious options include the All American (where the pickle comes ON the sandwich), chicken salad, and the Carolina Club, no sandwich on the menu reaches over $9 bucks.

332 S College Rd Wilmington, NC 28403

One of my favorite parts about North Carolina? You can try some of the best, authentic, hickory-smoked BBQ you'll ever taste for prices that seem stuck in a simpler time. B's BBQ is a great example. Regarded as one of the best eastern North Carolina establishments, this hole-in-the-wall is on a must-visit for many BBQ road trips and lists (including the NC BBQ Trail) but you'll be paying good prices for insanely good food. A BBQ plate will cost you $6.75 and the BBQ dinner is only a dollar more. If you want to stay simple, get a BBQ sandwich for only $3.50 and take home a pint of slaw, potatoes, or beans for just $2.50.

751 Bs Barbecue Rd Greenville, NC 27858

Come lunchtime, don't be surprised to see a long line form outside of Hap's Grill. Regular diners know to bring cash (it's cash-only) and know that waiting in line is just part of the experience. For only $1.75 you can try one of their famous hot dogs (and add cheese for 25 cents more). If you're in the mood for a burger, a plain burger will run you about $3.50 while a cheeseburger is only $3.75. You'll still have a little change leftover to try one of the delicious slushes for $2 or a side of chips for $.75 cents.

116 N Main St Salisbury, NC 28144

White Duck Taco Shop has become a must-stop in Asheville and is now expanding into Charlotte. The delicious and inventive tacos have five-star taste with a-la-carte pricing ringing in around $3-4 dollars per taco. Reflecting local ingredients and seasonal options, the menu (and prices) change frequently, but it's safe to say you can try two tacos without spending over ten bucks. Located in the vibrant River Arts District of Asheville, grab a local craft brew or wander around some galleries to make the experience complete.

1 Roberts St Ste 101 Asheville, NC 28801

It’s funny to think some of the best restaurants in the state are also some of the most affordable! What are some of your favorite ‘cheap eats’ in North Carolina? Any of your favorites make the list?

For another affordable meal with a cult-like following, you must try a hot dog from this legendary establishment.

White Duck Taco Shop has become a must-stop in Asheville and is now expanding into Charlotte. The delicious and inventive tacos have five-star taste with a-la-carte pricing ringing in around $3-4 dollars per taco. Reflecting local ingredients and seasonal options, the menu (and prices) change frequently, but it's safe to say you can try two tacos without spending over ten bucks. Located in the vibrant River Arts District of Asheville, grab a local craft brew or wander around some galleries to make the experience complete.

It’s funny to think some of the best restaurants in the state are also some of the most affordable! What are some of your favorite ‘cheap eats’ in North Carolina? Any of your favorites make the list?

For another affordable meal with a cult-like following, you must try a hot dog from this legendary establishment.


Here Are 8 Incredible Places You Can Eat In North Carolina For Less Than $10

Dining on a budget? No worries in North Carolina. With plenty of hole-in-the-walls offering reasonable prices for amazing food, you can leave with a full belly and slightly full wallet. I’ve always liked to believe high prices sometimes don’t reflect high quality, and the scrumptious fare you’ll find at these eight restaurants echo just that.

A Raleigh establishment and landmark since 1940, their famous hot dogs have received a lot of hype (including a visit from Adam Richman of Man Vs. Food) throughout the years, but the prices always stay reasonable. Enjoy an all-the-way hot dog for just $1.45, at that rate, you could have six and make breakfast lunch and dinner out of this meal, while still having some wiggle room for tip.

7 S West St Raleigh, NC 27603

Enjoy some of the freshest seafood right on the Intracoastal at the well-known Provision Company. While many seafood joints up the prices (due to location and quality) you can dine well for under ten bucks. A crabcake sandwich rings in at just $5.95 or you can enjoy 1/4 lb. steamed shrimp for only $6.96.

130 Yacht Basin Drive Southport, NC 28461

It's hard to believe a sandwich this famous is priced so reasonably, but that's one of the many amazing things about Snappy Lunch. A favorite of Andy and Barney, this 'Mayberry' establishment is known for their pork chop sandwich featuring pancake-batter-fried pork chop, sweet chili, mustard and coleslaw. The sandwich plus drink will ring you around $6 bucks, quite a steal! While looks might be deceiving, the sandwich is rich and filling. If you're not so crazy about pork, they offer other delicious options like burgers and sandwiches for under $10 bucks. After your meal, take time to walk off that pork chop and explore the charming town of Mount Airy, including an authentic squad car tour straight out of Andy Griffith. You'll certainly be shouting, "Citizen's Arrest!"

125 N Main St Mount Airy, NC 27030

This beloved BBQ establishment has kept its recipes, interior and exterior relatively the same since first opening in 1949. A place I always asked my grandparents to take me to while visiting them as a child, there's something about Short Sugar's that just stays with you (and has you craving it time and time again). Try a classic BBQ sandwich (sliced is $4.25 while chopped is $3.95) and pair it with hushpuppies for only $1.80. Save some change for a classic-style milkshake (vanilla or chocolate) ringing in at just $3 bucks.

1328 S Scales St Reidsville, NC 27320

Frequented by both penny-pinching college students and sandwich-loving locals, South College Deli offers stellar food for a reasonable price. If you're like me, you can even make two meals out of it and take the other half of your sandwich home (trust me, they pile meats, cheeses and toppings high here). Their signature is Beef on Weck that comes with a side of your choice (get the chips) for only $7.95. Other delicious options include the All American (where the pickle comes ON the sandwich), chicken salad, and the Carolina Club, no sandwich on the menu reaches over $9 bucks.

332 S College Rd Wilmington, NC 28403

One of my favorite parts about North Carolina? You can try some of the best, authentic, hickory-smoked BBQ you'll ever taste for prices that seem stuck in a simpler time. B's BBQ is a great example. Regarded as one of the best eastern North Carolina establishments, this hole-in-the-wall is on a must-visit for many BBQ road trips and lists (including the NC BBQ Trail) but you'll be paying good prices for insanely good food. A BBQ plate will cost you $6.75 and the BBQ dinner is only a dollar more. If you want to stay simple, get a BBQ sandwich for only $3.50 and take home a pint of slaw, potatoes, or beans for just $2.50.

751 Bs Barbecue Rd Greenville, NC 27858

Come lunchtime, don't be surprised to see a long line form outside of Hap's Grill. Regular diners know to bring cash (it's cash-only) and know that waiting in line is just part of the experience. For only $1.75 you can try one of their famous hot dogs (and add cheese for 25 cents more). If you're in the mood for a burger, a plain burger will run you about $3.50 while a cheeseburger is only $3.75. You'll still have a little change leftover to try one of the delicious slushes for $2 or a side of chips for $.75 cents.
