As we're being teased with 60 degree sunshine, Paul and I have felt inspired to start drafting our Spring road trip wish list. Get prepared for warm-weather wanderlust and start routing your own travels around the state! If you need a little inspiration, plan a trip around one of these 5 NC BBQ restaurants that offer more than just pulled pork.
Sim's Country BBQ | Granite Falls, NC: Listen to live bluegrass, watch the cloggers, and after you fill up on their BBQ buffet, cut a rug on the dance floor.
Barnyard BBQ & Flea Market | Peachland, NC: Use your BBQ fuel to shop the flea market. Bet you can find something pig-themed as a memento for your trip!
CJ's Bar-B-Cue | Cleveland, NC: Get there on Thursdays for live gospel music in the restaurant featuring different groups from around the area.
The Fire Pit | Wake Forest, NC: The restaurant parking lot is transformed into a car show on the 4th Saturday of every month. Dream about which car you'd like to take on your next BBQ road trip.
The Blue Note Grill | Durham, NC: This spot has live music every night and features everything from jazz to blues to bluegrass to country -- something for every musical interest.
