Check out Melvin's in Elizabethtown. The have the best burgers and I have really fond memories of going there as a kid. We'd drive over an hour just to get there. They'd always have lines out the door at lunch too. I'm not sure what their story is, but I know they've been there a long time.

I'm sure there are dozens of places for your book, but there's already a PBS show where the host visits different out of the way unique restaurants and samples the food.

You might want to research the potential market for your book before investing a lot of time unless you can offer a unique perspective that makes your book stand out from already available resources of similar information.

Good Luck!

Snappy Lunch in Mt Airy. The fried pork chop sandwich is really good. Been around forever. NC is filled with old timey places like this. Roast Grill sure qualifies in Raleigh. As does The Mecca and Cooper's and Watkin's Grill and Finch's.
