As someone who grew up in North Carolina, I’m not sure what my answer would be if I had to give someone a must visit restaurant to experience.

Luckily, I don’t have to think too hard on it because already did that for me! They did this by consulting reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor, as well as numerous roundups of iconic and/or important restaurants from a wide range of online publications. Those online publications include Food & Wine, Eater, Thrillist and The Daily Meal.

Their final choice for the must visit restaurant in North Carolina?

The Chicken Hut in Durham!

It’s described as a friendly no-frills restaurant that serves home-style Southern food at its best.

And you know we can’t talk about North Carolina without talking about South Carolina. So what did they decide for the must  visit restaurant in South Carolina?

The Peninsula Grill in Charleston! Not only is it a 26-6ear-old Charleston restaurant but their signature dish is a 12-layer “ultimate coconut cake.” Sold.

Anybody else extremely hungry right now?
