North Carolina Vacation – Day Two

My first experience with Carolina BBQ came at Clyde Cooper’s in downtown Raleigh.

The Verdict: Good stuff, not great. Wasn’t my favorite BBQ meal of the trip, but it was enjoyable. Chopped pork came with cole slaw, hush puppies and pork rinds. Sweet tea was great, and awfully sweet. The best part of Clyde Cooper’s is the atmosphere, the inside looks like it hasn’t changed in 40 or 50 years, and the service was incredibly friendly.

This was taken of a disc golf course. The courses in the area are nothing like the ones I’m familiar with. Tall pine trees everywhere. No grass, just rocks and tree roots line the ground. Streams and large ponds. Quite the experience.

Move over bigots at Chick-Fil-A, I’m part of #TeamBojangles. I had the cajun filet biscuit meal and it was great. If you haven’t already noticed a trend, I tried to eat myself to death on this trip. Lots of trans fats and sugar abound.
