The Roast Grill

When people aren’t getting heated about sports and different shades of blue here, they’re usually arguing over where to find the best BBQ, biscuits, or hot dogs. For the latter, instead of getting caught in the middle of a Char Grill vs. Snoopy’s debate, just head to our favorite, Roast Grill. The hot dogs are served “burnt,” which really means perfectly crispy on the outside. Be warned, there’s a ban on ketchup, mayo, and relish, so unless you smuggle some in (which frankly, we’ve never tried but aren’t above), you’ll choose between mustard, chopped onions, and chili. There are no fries or other side dishes either, but you should look at that as the perfect excuse to just eat another hot dog or two.

Trophy Brewing & Pizza

All three Trophy locations around Raleigh have the same great beer, but when you want fantastic pizza too, head to the one on Morgan.
