Fodor's Expert Review Big Ed's City Market Restaurant

$ Raleigh American

This homey breakfast and lunch spot was founded by Big Ed Watkins, who claims some of the recipes were handed down from his great-grandfather, a Confederate mess sergeant. Southern cooking doesn't get much more traditional than this place. The restaurant is filled with antique farm implements and political memorabilia, including snapshots of presidential candidates who have stopped by.
