At the newly opened V's Chicken and Barbecue, chefs champion North Carolina–style barbecued chicken, slathering its fire-kissed exterior with tangy barbecue sauce. Diners sidle up to the casual eatery's cafeteria-style counter, where grill gurus assemble heaping trays of comfort fare. Back at booths, patrons give forks leave to tend to zen gardens, and delve finger-first into 2 pounds of saucy chicken. Heaping bowls of creamy mac ‘n’ cheese, mashed potatoes, or collard greens flank chicken platters. Additionally, V's Chicken and BBQ boasts a rotating cast of homemade desserts such as red velvet and lemon pound cake.
Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt locations have a consistently upbeat ambience, from the bright colors that are the signature of their decor to the friendly staff that oversees dessert dispensing. But it’s the guests that take charge of their desserts and completely customize their frozen yogurt. They pick first from a rotation of made-daily 16 flavors, including gluten-free, fat-free, dairy-free and no-sugar-added options, that range from decadent wedding cake and white-chocolate raspberry to tart pomegranate and mango. Once swirled into a cup, the yogurt acts as a canvas for the array of toppings that includes blackberries, fruity pebbles, Reese’s Cups, or kiwi.
In the dawn of 2013, Vicki Harry opened Thanks A Latte in Holly Springs with the help of her husband, their three children, and a family friend. Within the café's cozy interior, baristas pull shots of espresso and brew Larry's Beans coffee. They also concoct specialty drinks such as the Daydream, a latte infused with chocolate, coconut, and almond flavors. Patrons can pair sips with pastries such as blueberry scones or cinnamon rolls, or peruse a gift shop stocked with journals, jewelry, and other items from brands such as RuMe and Natural Life.
As the name suggests, philly sandwiches reign at Fat Philly's. There's the classic steak or chicken philly. As well as the pizza, the chipotle, the buffalo chicken, and seemingly countless others. But Fat Philly's has more to offer its guests than its namesake sandwich. Burgers, hoagies, and wings are also available, all of which pair nicely with a side of hand-cut fries seasoned with sea salt or an order of pickle chips. The chefs also whip up classic breakfasts of eggs, pancakes, french toast, or war hammers to smash pesky alarm clocks.
