As WRAL-TV’s full-time feature reporter, Scott Mason—the Tar Heel Traveler—has profiled over one hundred food establishments across North Carolina and now he is sharing those wonderful places in his first portable travel guide offering readers an easy way to know where to grab a memorable bite while on their own travels across the state. Mason captures the essence of each eatery and highlights favorite dishes. Some places are famous for barbecue and others for hot dogs. Still others are known for steak, seafood, fried chicken, biscuits, doughnuts and ice cream. For the most part, they are longtime, loveable joints full of tradition and loyal customers who are more like friends and family. May these places live forever! Happy travels…and good eatin’!
