Want to eat like the locals? D. G. Martin has spent years traveling the major roadways of North Carolina, on the lookout for community, local history, and, of course, a good home-cooked meal. Here D. G. is your personal tour guide to more than 100 notable local roadway haunts that serve not only as places to eat but also as fixtures of their communities.

· Covers a range of food tastes from BBQ joints and country kitchens to Mexican restaurants and Greek diners
· Introduces diners to the restaurant owners and locals who make these places unique
· Includes current contact information, hours, directions
