- Every day features a different headliner entree – meatloaf on Mondays, fried chicken for Tuesdays, beef tips on rice for Wednesdays, chicken pastry on Thursdays and lasagna and fried fish on Fridays. But the most popular dish, BBQ chicken, can be had Monday through Friday. – Dale Gibson, Triangle Business Journal
