Bubba's Barbecue

Bubba's Barbecue is off I-77 in Charlotte near the northern edge of the city. It said "Eastern NC style" on the sign (whatever that means.) The people at the table next to me were from Philadelphia and made a trip just for this place! So that's one more for the Bubba collection! As is typical of these places (except Bridge's) the interior was very plain, little more than tables with plaid tablecloths with the restaurants own BBQ sauce waiting for you. This "Bubba's famous sauce" was weird in that it had vinegar in it so I mostly opted for the sweeter more normal stuff. 03-08



Raleigh, NC

A Pennsylvania tradition now in North Carolina. The one place you can eat a gas station sandwich and tell people about it. Sheetz was off I-85 near Raleigh. 03-08

Note: Despite an early dilemma on the which section of the site to place this in, "sit down" restaurants turned out to be most appropriate.
