FAMOUS SUBS AND PIZZA  2210 Neuse Blvd. The name says it all. It's known for the subs. Pizza is also a winner.  Subs are notable. Lunch and dinner specials-. Old time New Bernians have always loved this place with their own special spaghetti sauce. Greek or Italian style. Nice atmosphere.  Good pizza. **

KING BUFFET US 17S.  at Berne Square  Now an everything buffet.  Not a gourmet place, more a "fill-'em-up-cheap place". The trend seems to be set here for buffet restaurants, we are covered with this style eatery. You do get your money's worth here; never overly crowded.

MARINA SWEETS  208 Middle St. is a really nice, fun spot on Middle St. Creative luncheon menu with the best  "wrap" sandwiches outside of San Francisco. Best tasting calories anywhere. Open late for summer-time strolling with an ice cream cone, and the ice cream is really goooood-probably the best in town. ***

MOORE'S BARBECUE Hwy. 17 S.  If you haven't tried barbecue North Carolina style-this is the place to start.  Don't expect beef slabs with a tomato sauce, that's not our way. Shredded pork is the only TRUE barbecue.  Fried shrimp sandwich also a good choice. No frills, (to understate the case). Try the shrimp and fish  platters... Moore's serves food, not fancy. It's an eatin' place--period. ****  RIBS ON SATURDAYS (only) ARE FOUGHT OVER!

MUSASHI 2041 S. Glenburnie    Japanese Steak & seafood.  Good theater and a fun atmosphere. Very heavy on the veggies here;  a nice night out.  Hard to find for out-of-towners; behind the Harris Teeter.

OUTBACK   Next to the Bridgepointe Hotel .  What can you say?  It's the best.  Coconut shrimp is at  least as good as the steaks...and the chops...the absolute best pork chops anywhere! ***

OSAKA GRILL -Japanese food in a casual atmosphere. Drive-Thru available. Very tasty with quick service. The after-meal free ice cream sandwich and fortune cookie are always an anticipated treat

PAULA'S 1713 Red Robin Lane, fronting on US  17S     Popular neighborhood eatery, great pizza,  mostly  Italian specialties.  They seem to have their ducks in the proverbial row---salads are ho-hum. Good food, fast service, friendly personnel; It CAN be done, Paula's proves it. Seniors delight of reasonably priced entrees!  Voted best pizza  in town!?! (We don't agree, but that's what makes the world go round).

Picnic Basket Deli -Serves breakfast and lunch. All of your deli favorites, muffins, bagels, breakfast all served with a smile! S. Glenburnie Road across from the main post office.

POLLOCK STREET DELI 208 Pollock St. Open 7 days for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Tiny rooms in authentic colonial house, but surprisingly serves a good-sized crowd. Can't go wrong here. More parking in rear. Service is sometimes leisurely.  (Try the spinach chicken  or shrimp salad.) Terrific variety. Two minute walk from new  Riverfront Convention Center ***

37TH ST. PIZZERIA  Neuse Blvd.   Old-timer, with a late bar scene, Italian food and more Italian food, if you're not hungry for delicious old-style Italian, go elsewhere! Good lunch menu, calzones a specialty. Pizza really tasty. Draft and  wine. Delivery.  **

QUIZNO'S SUBS  1809 S. Glenburnie   Popular franchise featuring hot and toasted subs. You are familiar with this spot, the sandwiches have a different spice package that appeals to the eating explorer.

RUBY TUESDAY'S    US 70E     Salad bar extraordinaire. You know the drill with this popular franchise; we do have choices here now and the crowds are thinning except on weekends.    

SCHLOTZSKY'S  Deli US 17S.   Lunch here. You'll be satisfied and immediately decide to come back and try other things. Our favorite: those little pizzas. New sandwiches on the menu; don't pass up the Reubens... ***

SPUNKY McDOOGLE   S. Glenburnie.  Short orders done right.  ask for the macaroni and cheese casserole. Great neighborhood lunch place, good food and service.

SUPER CHINA BUFFET   S Glenburnie.   Small franchise,  catering to  the "eat-it-all-at-one-setting" crowd. Mega choices, from pizza to ....whatever.  The Chinese choices  are OK, sorta tastes similar to each other; caters to the gourmand's tastebuds.   You can get absolutely anything the crowd wants--including pizza!

TRENT RIVER COFFEE COMPANY Craven St. Downtown.      A favorite stopping -and listening place- with almost nightly live music in all categories!. Wonderful coffee, pastries and conversation too. (Hot Chocolate is not a good choice.) A great spot to read your morning  paper;  a real community asset!** *

The TEXAS STEAK HOUSE  3231 US 17S ,   near the Wal-Mart/ Twin Rivers mess of intersections.  Noisy, NOISY with the required Yee-haws. The onion appetizer is enough for 6 people! Prime rib is a great memory maker. Perfect for your beef fix.  HOWEVER, THE CATFISH IS THE BEST  IN TOWN! ***

THAI  THAI  2405 Neuse Blvd.  WOW!  we love this one.  Authentic Thai cuisine, with a light hand on the spices for the American  palate, this is a winner.  Nice atmosphere, Thai wait staff with manners and charm; this is a fine dining  experience.

WAFFLE HOUSE on US 17S and another one in James City on US 70E.    (Doing that voo-doo that they do so-o-o-o well... with all that great cholesterol!)   *

Other local  franchises not to miss include:  Andy's for the absolute best cheesesteak  and orangeades anywhere; Sonic for your 1950's drive -in fix;  Bojangles for that spicy fried chicken and lots of fixins; Golden Corral --you know it, always crowded but can always find a seat. If you need to feed a  lot of starving people and are not  interested in fine dining--  


And, if you want to drive out of town...........

Oriental, NC, is a 40-minute drive from New Bern on Route 55 east--across the  bridge, past the Fairfield Harbour entry and follow signs. 

In Oriental, try:

ORIENTAL MARINA RESTAURANT   Hodges St. (On the harbor)
Most varied and interesting seafood menu around. Steaks are good too, if you want it. Lots of care in the preparation of each dish. Reservations on weekends. 249-2204 ***

in       Morehead City    Take Hwy #70E, 45 minutes later you'll dead-end at Morehead  City and the ocean!    There are gobs of restaurants on the waterfront to the right of US 70.  "Sanitary" is a good fried seafood place that is a curiosity.  Lots of "Captains'" places, most  are ho-hum, but here are our favorites:

BOURBON ST. CAFE 20 Atlantic Station (Over the causeway, turn right), Atlantic Beach 252 808-2888.    Reservations a must, and you'll love the food. Creole yummy. **

BISTRO-BY-THE-SEA  Atlantic Beach 252 247-2777
Great eating experience. You'll think you are in a 5 star! Always crowded and you'll wait even with reservations. If slightly late, you'll lose your reservations***

The SANITARY RESTAURANT on the waterfront.    Family seafood spot with an interesting  history and name, at one time (as recent as a dozen years ago)  all staff were in spotless  white with hair nets.  Mostly fried, mostly delicious and a great view, in summer prepare    for a wait between 5:30 and 7. 

Take US 70-East from New Bern through Morehead City and over the main bridge.  Lots of good restaurants in town.  


In Beaufort,   try:                                                               

CLAWSON'S on Front St.    One of the oldest, and most popular lunch places. Charming decor,   noisy, and handy--right in the center of the action.   Crabcake sandwich !

The BEAUFORT GROCERY COMPANY    Queen St.    Wow, will you love this food!   The yacht crowd has made it into a real winner. You'll like the ambience altho it's very noisy... it's in an old grocery bldg.  lots of wooden walls and floors.   Everything we've tried there is good, Cobb  salad is a real nice surprise, pies are the best anywhere.*** *

CHART HOUSE is right on the water, views would be wonderful if they kept the windows cleaner.  Eat outside if you can---seafood of course. **

The Spouter Inn  Forget about what it was years ago. This is a clean, well-run, dockside restaurant  that serves up-scale seafood.  **
