I live near the Wisconsin/Minnesota border right now and am planning a move to NC before the next snowfall here. I was so hoping there would be Cracker Barrel's down there... there used to be one up here, in a Minneapolis suburb, but the last time I went there, it was all boarded up and and shut down, and we can't figure out why. Whenever we went there it was always packed.
Anyway I could eat the hash brown casserole till I burst, it's my favorite. It's one of the only restaurants I could go to around here and never be disappointed or get sick. Yay Cracker Barrel!
So can anyone tell me, how common are they in NC?
Twenty-four in North Carolina, according to their web site.

as the previous poster has stated you will have no problem finding a Cracker Barrel (that's not even including South Carolina). Don't want to make you jealous but ate there yesterday and had the hash brown casserole, fried apples and bisquit (yum...yum...)

My brother and sister in law called to tell me they ate there last night on their way back from GA. I'll have to try the hashbrown casserole next time I'm out there.
We use to have them in CA, but they closed down a long time ago. My husband use to go there when he traveled to Germantown, WI on business.

Last one I ate at was alive & well and just south of the VA line in NC.

Don't know the name of the town, but it was right off I-95.

Default Relocating

I can not tell you how glad I am to see there are so many people moving to the peidmont and mountain area of my state. I have so worried about the influx of imports in the southeastern part of my state and the population boom. I encourage all of you to move to these areas discussed on this site. You will be much happier in the Triangle (Raleigh-Durham) area or Charlotte area. They are much more metro than anything else the state has to offer. We Welcome your business on the coast for business, but please be advised; you would not be happy here. We have heavy humidity for most months of the year, mosquitoes large enough to carry you away, water bugs the size of quarters, intolerable growth problems, not to mention insurance and hurricanes. We welcome your visits and look forward to your business, but you wouldn't want to move here.

When they say southern food is comfort food they arenít kidding! Ate at Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House in Savannah and The Dillard House in GA (canít remember the city). These are family style restaurants and whatís on the menu is exactly what you get, I have never been served so much food.

If you ever go to Boone, NC, I recommend the Dan'l Boone Inn Restaurant. Delicious country cookin'! Their country ham biscuits are heaven! My family and I live in Greensboro and we take a trip to Boone (by way of the Blue Ridge Parkway) each Fall. We have to eat at Dan'l Boone Inn when we go. Looove their food.

Default California to NC

Hi I also have moved to NC from the North.Pennsylvania to be exact. I really love it here and think that it is a great place to raise a family. My next door neighbors moved here from the San Francisco area. They are so happy with the cost of homes compared to California and they love the climate and the friendly people. We live in Cary and the neighborhoods are diverse. Most people have moved here from somewhere else so making new friends is easy.I'll send you a personal message with some website info to check out Best of luck Nancy

Default CA to NC

I know someone who moved from Santa Monica to Asheville -- you won't be alone. He mentioned to me that he has met a few other SoCal transplants.

I haven't met too many CA transplants myself, but I have met plenty from the eastern part of the U.S. (such as the northeast and FL).

Now that I think about it, I'm from Florida. I've been here about 14 years and have been assimilated.
