    I had not heard of Carrboro before your article, but it looks like a charming place! I was just in North Carolina in March and I’d love to go back and explore this area! Tandem Restaurant will be a DEFINITE. You had me at Strawberry Gazpacho. Weird, I know, but I love it!

    It does look like a great little stop. Those “oysters” look amazing. I’d be happy to cook them up. I’m not sure when I’ll be in North Carolina next, so I will book mark this post.

    I had never heard of Carrboro, but it looks like a great city filled with southern charm. We love to check out the arts scene in a town, and it looks like the arts are alive and well in Carrboro. The botanical gardens also look like a great place to visit.

    This be the kind of place if I was doing a road trip in North Carolina (which I still to tick off that state) where I could rest, enjoy the food and also pick up some goodies at the market (or seeing my partner in crime guzzle down those oysters! – I cant stand them but so loves them!). The town looks quaint to visit but get me at those 1980s arcade games. I am such a geek! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Sounds like a great place to relax and unwind. I love the farm-to-table approach and the arcades would be fun too! Here is to hopefully making to US one day ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve never heard of Carrboro before. But I know North Carolina has been getting a lot more tourism with the rise in the popularity of Ashville and Raleigh! Sounds like a fun off the beaten path location!

    I have not heard of Carrboro in North Carolina before but it sounds and looks like such an interesting place to visit. I especially like Cross Ties Barbecue as I just love BBQ FOOD and I would also go to The Carrboro Farmersโ€™ Market and try out some of the local products.
