The One North Carolina Sandwich That’s Worth Driving Across The State For

Have the winter blues hit you yet? Because for me, they have. After Christmas all we really have to look forward to is longer, warmer days, and potentially a beach trip on the horizon. One way to forget about winter and escape to summer is an easy option: seafood. Yet, the option isn’t SO easy; it might require a bit of a drive, but North Carolina’s best shrimpburger is worth the miles.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Have you tried a Big Oak shrimpburger before? I crave one daily and can’t wait for a return trip to have another of the sweet and savory bun, crunchy coleslaw, and piping hot fried shrimp that combine for a sandwich that’s totally worth putting the miles on your car.

You can find Big Oak at:
1167 Salter Path Rd
Salter Path, NC 28575
