Barbecue

If anything is “experience dining” in Raleigh, N.C., it’s barbecue. The area boasts some of the most well-regarded barbecue cooks in the country and is home to restaurants that are downright famous for their version of a pig done right.

Typically Raleigh serves Eastern N.C.-style barbecue, which is heavy on the vinegar, salt and red and black pepper, although you can find Western N.C.-style barbecue here, too (with a sauce made from ketchup, sugar, other seasonings and a trace of hot pepper).

N.C. + barbecue = spectacular!
