Not sure how this would work out… but if we are Hellbent on keeping DTR establishments “NC Based” what about a Char Grill (I know there is one on Hillsborourgh, but let’s face it… its days are numbered), Cook Out… but as a walkup (have you seen the lines at these places), or heck even a Bojangles. These places can move some volume, are kid friendly, and easy on the budget. HAHA [sorry couldn’t resist this post :)]
But on a serious note… I get the feeling that dining in DTR tends to be a bit “elitist”. For us non “Foodies” or Connoisseurs, just give us some more decently priced options.
