Here it is, my newest book, a long-awaited restaurant guide.

As WRAL’s Tar Heel Traveler, I have featured more than one hundred restaurants on TV, and now I share these wonderful places, offering you an easy way to know where to grab a memorable bite during your own travels across the state. I provide information such as addresses, phone numbers and web sites, but also highlight favorite dishes and capture each restaurant’s personality. And yes, they are brimming with personality!

Barbecue, burgers, hot dogs, steaks, seafood, doughnuts, ice cream…good ol’ comfort food served at longtime, loveable classics. May they live forever!

“A journey is a person in itself. No two are alike.  We do not take a trip. A trip takes us.”

- John Steinbeck, Travels With Charley

As the Tar Heel Traveler, I have journeyed many miles across North Carolina, and I’m always amazed at what I find. I tell my stories Monday through Thursdays at 5:55 p.m. on WRAL-TV, and I also write about them in my books. I have written five books that chronicle my television adventures—the fascinating places I have visited and colorful characters I have met. I also write about food and restaurants, miracles and inspiration—wow, what a fantastic mix! From Murphy to Manteo, the mountains to the coast, my books celebrate North Carolina. Aren’t we lucky to live in such a beautiful state? There’s a pleasant surprise around every bend!
