Under the neon Tee Pee, patrons will be pleasantly surprised by the Tee Pee Restaurant's service, atmosphere and food. It is located on Highway 441 North in the heart of the Cherokee Indian Reservation in North Carolina. They offer fresh local salmon, an inexpensive buffet, tasty club sandwiches and also claim to have the "Largest Salad Bar" in all of Cherokee. Eaters can either dine inside the family style restaurant or sit on a deck out back over a stream. Indian dancers can be spotted performing across the street at a gift shop during the summer months.

Here's a nice shot of the neon marquee for the Cox Family Restaurant in Morehead City. This place may be worth a stop. If not for the food, then at least for a look see at the neon house depicted on this sign.

Here's Corky's Bar-B-Q. Pulled pork, wet or dry ribs. They even ship to most any location via Federal Express. I have a friend who lives in Grand Forks, ND. He orders from them several times a year. 07-06
