You haven't tried North Carolina barbecue until you've tried Clyde Cooper's BBQ.

Okay—that’s an exaggeration. There’s plenty of amazing barbecue in NC, but Clyde Cooper’s is on another level. With only $50 in his pocket, Clyde Cooper started Clyde Cooper’s Barbecue on January 1, 1938. After 76 years in its original Davie Street location, the barbecue joint moved around the corner to S. Wilmington. Co-owner Debbie Holt said Clyde lived to be almost 100 (who said barbecue wasn’t good for you?!) but just in case it’s not your thing, you’re in luck—Clyde’s does a mean fried chicken, as well as beef brisket dipped in au jus sauce. Pro tip: Clyde’s is cash only. So bring those dolla dolla bills, y’all.
