WRAL-TV Tar Heel Traveler Scott Mason has a tough job. He spends part of his working life chowing down in the best, sometimes hidden, North Carolina eateries. At least he’s kind enough to share. Mason’s next Tar Heel Traveler special, the annual restaurant show, airs this Thursday night, August 6, 2015, on WRAL-TV at 7pm.
The half-hour special features classic eats from around the state. From barbecue to burgers – to shrimp burgers – to ice cream and donuts and freshly baked bread, it’s a special to savor.
“I often stop at restaurants while Tar Heel traveling,” Mason told Capcom. “These are good ol’ down-home classics that have been around for years, often run by generations of the same family. They make for great stories, and it’s not just the food that’s good but the history and tradition, too—so rich and colorful. Of course, I enjoy sampling the delicious eats. I’m definitely going on a diet—tomorrow!”
The 2015 edition of Tar Heel Traveler Eats marks the 33rd Tar Heel Traveler special assembled by Mason and WRAL since the series debuted in 2007.
Mason says the show will feature eleven great restaurants from across the state. He’s eaten in them all.
Well, it’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta chew it.
