That would be Yoders, and I can say that the food is great there!

The Warehouse (not spelled like that, don't know the actual spelling of the restaurant) is what opened up in Wimpie's place. From what I have heard it is pretty good, the same country cooking/seafood vibe.

I guess the Dixie Queen is great as long as you don't mind dinner served on styrofoam plates with plastic utensils. Oh, and everything is deep fried in the nastiest tasting oil that they can find. Everything tastes the same. Like old oil. We paid an average of $12.50 a plate. I'd rather eat at McDonald's.

People sure line up to eat there, though. That's not my type of food, either, but if you like fried seafood it must be a good choice.

As an aside.... One of my customers was a small girl during the London Blitz. She has some very interesting stories about what went on during that terrible period of time.
Yes my mum told me all sorts of storys about the Blitz in London where she lived as a girl.

i wanted to retire near my friend in Winterville. I want to know the same things. A real Estate person said to try New Bern for retirement. I do not want to pay hurricain insurance, and wonder if new bern is to close to the ocean? which town is more retirement friendly?

If you are coming from up north you don't understand how the small towns in the south are structured. Down here you can have the best part of town separated from a street or a railroad track, from just about the worst. You see, we all live together down here.

As towns turn to cities, yeah, you start to get good and bad areas. But they are frequently very close together.

Yes, Greenville does have a high crime rate. But if you pay attention to where you are and when you are where you are, you are as safe as anywhere.

Once, when I lived outside Washington, DC, the POST provided a huge article with tons of crime statistics. I no longer remember the details, but if you were not out past midnight, your chance of being murdered were reduced by like 90%. When all factors were considered, I had a .001% chance of being murdered in DC, just doing my normal activities. Yes, poop happens, but if you have any brains and even a tad of common since, you will be fine.

Greenville gets a bum rap. Beyond awesome health facilities, ECU, though I aint a pirate, is a pretty good university, and shopping and eating is about all you need. If you need to get to Raleigh (or the Smithfield outlet mall--which has about everything) it is a short, easy drive.

Looking at countywide education scores is very very misleading. Go to the NC DPI web site, look at report cards, and pitt county and find the school you kids may attend. You might have some 90's and you might have some 10's and the average would be 50. DO NOT LOOK COUNTY WIDE/

Good Luck.

raleigh is NOT a short ride from greenville. there is one, dinky overcrowded/trafficy mall in greenville and if you want to go to another one you're looking at driving at least an hour. i guess you can say the same thing about anything in greenville, though. i would never ever choose to live there but it definitely depends on what you're looking for. cost of living is very low on the plus side
