RALEIGH, N.C. — A restaurant in North Carolina has been featured on a list of the 21 best diners in America.
Travel website Thrillist.com released the list earlier this year and Poole’s Downtown Diner in Raleigh made the cut.
Thrillist recommended that customers try the mac and cheese and Royal burger. They wrote, in part:
When selecting places for this list that’ve been “updated,” we had to be very picky, as too many places rely on the nostalgia and historical gravitas and then just add something with kale and call it updated. But James Beard Award-winning chef Ashley Christensen (Beasley’s Chicken + Honey, Fox Liquor Bar, etc.) is not one of those people. Her crew meticulously restored and preserved the old Poole’s Luncheonette, with its double horseshoe bar and red banquettes, and offers up a seasonal menu on their chalkboard based on what’s available right now.
The rankings were based on opinion. The 21 restaurants listed were not specifically ranked. Poole’s was the only place in North Carolina to make the list.
