Yes, Bakatsias's was in the basement of U Square. I went there for prom night 26 years ago.
My wife, who was born in Raleigh to Yankee and Midwestern parents, claims mayo and salt on tomatoes makes them great.
I, who comes from 10 generations of Marylanders (yes, it is south of the Mason-Dixon line) and North Carolinians, claim a little bit of sugar in best.
Anyone want to help us settle? Is this a regional thing or just personal preference?
