best place for fried chicken in Raleigh?

Hi everyone,

We are hosting a group from Japan next week and are planning to have a potluck of traditional American food. I would love to bring some great fried chicken, any suggestions on where to obtain this in Raleigh? I would like to avoid the chains . . .

thanks! Kim

Best Southern Food in Triangle area?

I've never even heard of the Old Place - I just checked out the website - it looks great! Thanks so much.

Other ideas are welcome!!

Best Southern Food in Triangle area?

Hi everyone,

I have a friend coming to visit me in Raleigh for a week from the Minneapolis area - she wants to experience true southern food. I would like to try and stay away from the upscale places (from a budgetary perspective) and would appreciate some input! I've heard great things on this board about the Pit in downtown Raleigh - and not such good things about Mama Dips, unfortunately. Any suggestions re: good fried chicken, etc., would be welcome. Thanks!

Is there ANYWHERE worth eating in Smithfield, NC?

Taking the mother in law (who lives in Carolina House, Smithfield) to dinner - ANY suggestions? I'm afraid it's a desolate wasteland of strip malls and fast food . . . .

Thanks! Kim

suggestions for waikiki, maui

Hi everyone, My family (husband and 10 year old son) are planning a trip to Honolulu and Maui in April. In Maui I believe we will be staying at Eva Villa near Wailea and will be there for approx 3 days. In Honolulu we will be staying at Hilton Hawaiian Village for approx one week (business meeting for my husband so we will probably not be travelling much).

I'd love recommendations re: local food (locally grown possibly!!) not too expensive, sort of funky, that sort of thing. We love sushi and seafood. Also, any farmer's markets??

Also, I know this is a food board but if anyone has experienced the interisland ferry from Honolulu to Maui I'd love to hear about it - we are thinking of taking it.

Thanks for any suggestions - this is my first post but I LOVE this website!
