Didn't get service till I got back to Mt Airy. At least you didn't go home empty handed fish.

I debated punting the tag to the coast and to the mountains but ended up leaving it here close to the middle.

New NC tag what # I haven't a clue...



It should be easy enough to find.

Yep, that's pretty close to the middle. You had a nice day's work.

Used to pass this place on the weekends when I'd take an alternate route home from University but they were never open when I went by. How's the food?

Well above average Lexington style BBQ and generous portions. I've only been once since they reopened after the fire and it was good.

Speaking of BBQ, where are the places to go in NC for Lexington style? I'm thinking about doing a weekend long BBQ ride.

Personally I can't be much help with Lexington style (keep your ketchup outta my que) but why not hit one of the places in Lexington?

Have you seen this thread?

Nope. Just ride TO Lexington for the BBQ fest and try them all in one location. Then go for a long ride to burn some calories.

^^ I'll never attend that fiasco again. It's less of a BBQ festival as it is a street block party with BBQ as a food vendor. Mrs Ridge and I went a couple years ago and left with a sour taste (pun intended) for the whole thing. Parking is a PITA, high entry fee just to walk streets and look at local baubles to clutter a home while the BBQ is set up on side streets in nondescript tents. Unless you ask (even then the cashier may not know), you have no idea whose BBQ you're eating at any given time.

To me, a BBQ festival centers around the Q complete with cookoffs, ribs, sauces, sides, contests and all things smoked pig. Just my humble opinion...

I haven't been in several years, so it may well have changed. Back in the day, it really was about the 'que.

I could pretty well get tossed out of the state (and thread) for saying this but...

I was raised on that style of barbecue. Lexington, Speedy's in Lexington, Blue Mist in Asheboro, Hops in Asheboro (better than Lexington and Blue Mist with better slaw but I haven't been in twenty years). Dozens of other places in central NC. I grew fat on what I _thought_ was a good barbecue sandwich.

The absolute BEST barbecue sandwich I've had, though, isn't from anywhere in NC. It's just across the state line at Ridgewood BBQ in Bluff City, TN. It can be hit or miss; when it's miss it's good, when it's hit it's fantastic. The bleu cheese bowl (even if you're only a little fond of bleu cheese) gives it that extra...something

Probably so. Looks like most of the Triangle crowd is either working or at the beach...
