Dine Like a Local

Double Barley Burger with pickle fries on the side sits on a metal tray on a wooden counter top.Sure, we have a variety of chain restaurants with hamburgers, pizza, and steaks. But while in JoCo, you might like to try our local BBQ, slow-roasted in the Eastern NC style.  Or, if you are a proclaimed “foodie”, there are several chef-driven farm-to-table dining experiences throughout the county. 

If you are in a hurry, we have convenient fast food at all major exits along I-95 and I-40...but, we encourage you to spend just a little more time and get a local recommendation -- we are sure you will enjoy local favorites!

We like our tea sweet and our hush puppies hot!
