Sabretts are the best only if you get them from the trucks.The same for Nathans at a Nathans store.When you buy them from the grocery stores the preparation is usally different from the restaurants or trucks. If you are even trying to compare the two then you've NEVER had one in NYC at one of the vendors or gone to a Nathans restaurant.

There are Abbotts in the MA, FL, and Japan, why not NC? I think they all were started by Rochesterians buying a franchise.

The one in Florida is closed down I know that because the inlaws spend winter down there and we were just there and its gone (apparently too close to 95). Never heard of any in MA or Japan but who knows. Besides in NC they have "goodberries" which will never let a competitor make it down there.

Wegmans is inching its way south also. It now has 4 stores in Virginia. Harris Teeter down here in NC isn't bad, but it's a far cry from Wegmans.

According to Abbott's Web Site, there are 4 in Florida and one in Louisiana now. I don't know anything about goodberries, but since half of NY moved to NC, there has to be some market at least (maybe if you convert some Buffalonians from that subpar Andersons or whatever it is).

yeah that's another exaggeration...half of NY didnt' move to NC...the northern presence in the south is really over-stated. Between 2000 and 2007 about 800 people moved from Monroe County to Wake County (Raleigh area) and about 1200 moved from Monroe County to Mecklenberg County (Charlotte). There really isn't quite the "mass exodus" out of NY that many people believe. There's a definite trend, but its not like everyone in NY left or everone in NC is a transplant. There is definitely a very high transplant population in Wake and Mecklenberg Counties...with probably half of those counties' populations being trasnplants; but they aren't all from NY or even all from the North.

Goodberries is just like Abbots...frozen custard that always has a line around the corner. Only with more of a southern feel. lol

I guess it just feels like more. I know 5 people personally that moved to Charlotte and Raleigh.
