Beasley's Chicken and Honey Opened in Raleigh?

I ate at Beasleys last week. We chose to drink the water rather than buy tea, not for the cost but the calories. I got a quarter chicken and collards and mashed potatoes and biscuits. My daughter got a waffle and chicken combo and mac and cheese on the side. The food was fine but I've had better. She picked up the tab which was $45.00+ including tip. I heard that Chuck's, Beasleys, and the steak house nearby all share one kitchen. Since this establishment is near the courthouse, they may be interested in the lawyer business because a poor working stiff would not be able to afford it. I'm glad I tried it, but would not go out of my way to return.

Good Eats off I-95 between NJ and FL?

Naco...I have to disagree with you on Parker's Barbecue. I have eaten there for years and it is consistantly great. Also, off 95 in the Smithfield (NC) area, is Holt's Lake Barbecue and Seafood. I have never had a bad meal there in 30 yrs (or more).

Eastern NC cheese biscuits

Cheese biscuits have the cheese baked inside. A biscuit that has been opened and cheese inserted after cooking is......well....a biscuit with cheese.

NC Barbecue and Fried Chicken near I-95

If you are in the Smithfield, NC area, just off of 95 is Holt's Lake Barbecue and Seafood. I think they have delicious seafood, chicken and barbecue. They also have other specials at lunch, and many

vegetables to choose from. Something for everyone. My daughter and I always meet there for lunch when we can. I have never had a bad meal and I have been going there for over 30 years. It burned down last year and has reopened this year. They also serve family style if you want it. Not many restaurants do that anymore.

The Adams at Pinewood is a sitdown restaurant. The cue is eastern NC and very good. The Adam's on highway 70 is take out or sitdown outside. They do have a few tables. The food is typical wood fire grilled... barbecue, chicken, beef and pork ribs, several sides to choose from. Love it.

My children always eat at Nino's (Italian) in Mount Olive, when they want fine dining there. In Goldsboro, we like LaPaz on Spence Avenue. Great authentic mexican food, great prices, and great service. LaPaz is in a strip mall (Cobblestone?).

I beg to differ on Wilber's being trash. They still cook their barbecue with wood, and they make the best barbecue gravy ever. I always fill up on the barbecue gravy and hushpuppies.
Adam's Roadside has good barbecue, chicken, and ribs. I think they are a little too high and stingy with the cornbread. They also employ unsupervised teens that could care less. I went to the pickup window at Pinewood and the guy made my plate and let it stand there.
He then put cornsticks in to cook, which should have been done first thing.

The Eastern NC cheese biscuit is baked with the hoop cheddar in the center, not sliced and inserted. It's great when it bakes and the cheese oozes out onto the bottom of the biscuit.

A true North Carolinian knows it is Chicken Pastry, not chicken and dumplings, even though I have heard transplants call it that. lol. My mother made chicken and dumplings also, but they were made with cornmeal.

Better than the RC and moonpie is having the proprietor cut you a wedge of cheese from their ever present hoop and serve it to you with a slice of white bread. Memories.

For some reason, I thought you wanted restaurants that serve authentic, original NC cuisine.

Eastern NC cheese biscuits

The Fast Break in Fremont has great cheese biscuits. They are a little smaller that in the past because the business has been sold. Also, Bojangles in Goldsboro on Spence Ave has the "Cheddar Bo". I've tried it and it's good, just not like my mama made.

Cheese biscuits are a fact of life in my family. I was raised in eastern NC and my mama, her mama and my great g-ma and all my aunts made cheese biscuits. An authentic cheese biscuit is not split and the cheese inserted. They are made from flour, hog lard and buttermilk. The "hoop" cheese is cut in squares and inserted in the center of the raw dough. The biscuit is then molded around the cheese. Some will ooze out and that only makes it better. The cheese that collects on the bottom of the biscuit (and the pan) will be both crispy and gooey. That reminds me of the "fried" cheese my mama made when I was little. She melted a pan full of hoop cheese in an iron skillet and we smeared it on our biscuit......very good. Boy, I miss mama's cooking.
