Searching for a great slice.....

Still looking for great pizza. I haven't found that Jersey quality yet. I have certainly ruled out many places. You are on your own for the bad places but I will tell you about the good ones. Mom said if you can't say something nice.........

In Mecklenburg County, VA the best is Pino's on Route 4 near the Kerr Lake Dam. They have good pizza, strombollis and calzones. The entrees are close to home. The prices are reasonable and the service is better than most. The owner is from Brooklyn and knows what he is doing. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

I have heard that Roanoke Rapids has a great pie. I will let you know.

Great Ribs

If you are looking for ribs call Watersview restaurant. We go there every Friday night by boat and tear into the ribs. They have a great baked potato. The Ribs are Memphis style served wet. They are slow smoked with hickory and fall off the bone. The price is reasonable considering you also get a priceless view of Lake Gaston with every meal. They have great daily and nightly specials.

Outside Summer Deck. Plenty of room to park your boat, Great friendly service

Day 1

February 14, 2007

First day with the new blog. I am going to use this space as a forum to share ideas on where to eat and where to get great food ingredients in a 50 mile circle around Lake Gaston. I am a retired chef who started a real estate career at age 40. I own my own real estate Company United Country Southern Gateway in Gasburg, VA at Lake Gaston. I still love to cook. Luckily we are close to Raleigh NC and Richmond VA to have easy access to great places to eat and great places to shop. If you know of great places or have questions please post to my site. I am looking forward to hearing and sharing.
