Finally!!!!!!! Dogs at Roast Grill

Tony and I have been waiting patiently for a long time to get to eat at Roast Grill.  Seeing it featured on one of my favorite food shows, “Man vs. Food,” made the wait even more excruciating. It’s been weeks, maybe even months. You’d think that we were on a waiting list for some fancy restaurant, not hot dogs. The problem was that the legendary Roast Grill (7 S West St., Raleigh, NC 27603-1849) has crazy hours and every time we went, it was closed. We showed up two Saturdays in a row and they were closed each time for a wedding. I love roasted hot dogs, it seems like you only get the boiled kind around here, so I wanted to cry out of disappointment. The thing we were most afraid of was after the wait, would these hot dogs be worth it?

A burger with mojo

Well, we were hoping to go to the famed Roast Grill last week, but even though I watched it happening on the North Carolina Man v. Food episode, I am still not entirely convinced food is served there.   I have never been by there when it is open, and when we went on Saturday, our plans were once again foiled as there was s a sign in the window stating that they were attending a private wedding.  So, after grumbling about Roast Grill being involved in a government conspiracy that resembles the plot of Fringe, we decided on one of our favorites: Mo joe’s  Burger Joint(620 Glenwood Ave Raleigh, NC 27603-1224).
