Love eating up Raleigh history? Check out more of Raleigh's oldest restaurants that you simply can't miss.
Order a dog with a combination of mustard, homemade chili, slaw or onions. That's it. Don't you dare ask for ketchup or you'll ruin the flavor of The Roast Grill's homemade chili, which has been dished out on these grill-blackened, southern-style hot dogs since the very beginning.
The Roast Grill is simply charming. This local hot dog establishment in historic downtown Raleigh has been around since 1940 when it was founded by Mrs. Mary Charles and George Poniros. Pony up to the small counter and take a seat on an old fashioned stool. You’ll definitely want to order a glass bottle of Coca-Cola and take in the antiques displayed in the restaurant.
