Most People Don’t Know These Small Towns In North Carolina Have AMAZING Restaurants

While big cities like Raleigh and Charlotte are making their mark with a high-end, ever developing ‘foodie culture,’ I’d like to think the heart of true, delicious North Carolina cuisine lies in our small towns. Here, the food is local, made with love, and always served with a little down-home comfort. These 13 small towns might fly under the radar, but their restaurants do not.
