The North Carolina Restaurant In The Middle Of Nowhere That’s So Worth The Journey

Located in the eastern region of the state, the small city of Kinston boasts a population of 21,677. The charm is very much alive in this small, sometimes unknown destination not far from the coast. While the city can itself be deemed a somewhat ‘sleepy, small town,’ there’s one award-winning restaurant that truly stands out from all others in the eastern region and perhaps the state.


Chef & the Farmer might be a bit of a drive for those not in the eastern region (and even some in the OBX) but it is TOTALLY worth the journey. Have you dined here before?

If you love making a journey for one of a kind restaurants, these ten are hard to find but worth the search!
