Thin-crust pizza in Raleigh?

Bell Mia, the only place to eat Pizza in the Raleigh area. You feel like you are in NYC. Go, don't run, it is simply the best! Thanks for bringing pizza to our area. I have not had pizza this good since my last trip to NYC.

BBQ or Southern eats between Orangeburg and Savannah

Dukes BBQ in Oburg by the old Pepsi plant. It is one of the best!

McCrady's/Charleston and a few more

Could not agree more. Lived in Charleston and have tried every place. Love many of them, but the tasting menu by Sean Brock is the BEST!

Charleston noshing

Bowens island has reopened and is great. It is 30 minutes from IOP. However, you can get oysters from the raw bar at the boat house that are very good. The Wreck is good fried seafood in Mt P. It is not your typical place at all and can be difficult to find. You can go north on 17 just past bulls bay (See Wee Rest) for another out of the way place that once had great seafood. have not been in a few years. Basil is great if you want thai, but it is downtown. Have a good time.

Bar B Que in Charleston

You can try stickyfingers? It is a local chain and the only BBQ downtown. Or go to Mt Pleasant (just over the bridge) and try Melvins or Momma Browns BBQ.

Local Fish, try FIG for all types of local food. Hanks or FISH also has great seafood. Or go to The Wreck in Mt Pleasant or Bowens Island on John Island for something you can't find any place else
