Holiday Invitational tips: Where to eat, shop

Are you heading to Raleigh for the HighSchoolOT.com Holiday Invitational

The tournament runs from Dec. 26-29, 2012, at Broughton High School, but when you aren't at the gym, you gotta eat and possibly shop. 

So, I have scouted some local places to check out while you are in town: 

Nearby hotels: 

Summit Hospitality Group is the lodging sponsor of the HighSchoolOT.com Holiday Invitational, with hotels in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Wilmington and Pinehurst.

Clarion Hotel at the State Capitol, 320 Hillsborough St. - less than a mile driving distance from Broughton and is walking distance from North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and restaurants Second Empire, The Borough and The Flying Saucer. Also, not too far away - The Roast Grill famous for its hot dogs. 

Sheraton Raleigh Hotel, 421 S. Salisbury St. - Just over a mile from Broughton and walking distance from Sam & Wally's Eatery Deli, which has sandwiches, wraps and salads. It also isn't too far from Poole's, which has killer mac and cheese. 

Raleigh Marriott City Center, 500 Fayetteville St. - Just over a mile away from Broughton and walking distance from ZPizza, Jimmy John's and Posta Tuscan Grille.

Shopping: 

Cameron Village offers a ton of specialty shops, including White House & Black Market, Talbots and Bailey's Fine Jewelry, dining options. 

Crabtree Valley Mall is located nearly 4 miles from Broughton, but offers tons of stores and dining options, including Cheesecake Factory and PF Chang's. 

Where to eat: 

East Village Grill & Bar - praised by fans for its relaxed atmosphere, reasonable prices and cold beer.

Golden Corral -- for a choice that suits no matter what you hunger for, the buffet favorite has multiple Triangle locations.

MoJoe's Burger Joint - The name says it all at this no frills burger joint.

Mellow Mushroom - A little further down Peace Street but a great option for pizza, calzones, sandwiches. 

The Rockford - Gourmet sandwiches and (Note they do not seat parties large than eight)

Tobacco Road Sports Cafe - Traditional sports bar fare. Great place to watch a game and eat some wings. 

For a quick taste for the fried chicken loved throughout the South, visit one of the more than 25 Bojangles locations throughout the Triangle.

The Q Shack offers another Carolina specialty – tender, smoked BBQ! 

Taco Bell fans will find a coupon for a free beef taco in the Holiday Invitational program.

At Cameron Village:

Flying Biscuit - This place has some of the best biscuits and grits in town. They also serve lunch and dinner items, but it is hard to resist their breakfast served all day. 

Noodles & Company - Like the name implies, noodles are the main attraction here, but they also serve salads and sandwiches. 

Moe's Southwest Grill - Burritos, nachos, quesadillas 

Uncle Fatty's Drive-In - Burgers, fries, hot dogs 

Cafe Carolina - grilled paninis, flatbreads, soups, salads and sandwiches. They also serve some great brunch and bakery items. 

Village Draft House - Pasta, sandwiches, pitas and entrees including meatloaf, fried shrimp and Smokey Mountain Chicken covered in mixed cheeses, bacon and barbecue sauce. 

Cantina 18 - Mexican fare including short rib nachos and spicy orange glazed shrimp.

Cameron Bar & Grill - Located right next to Flying Biscuit, this place offers a variety of sandwiches, wraps and entrees, including shrimp and grits and bison meatloaf. 

Village Deli - Traditional deli items, burgers and chicken sandwiches and a good seafood selection including oyster po'boys and shrimp.

I have been to Cameron Bar and Grill twice and had horrible service both times. Second time we just left w/o paying (we all had 2 beers) because we waited for an hour for meal, and the order was all wrong.

Never been to Flying Biscuit, but a co-worker has told me it's not all it's made up to be.

Big Daddy Cain, Cameron Bar & Grill was acquired by Eschelon Hospitality earlier this year. I'm not sure if it had the same owner as Flying Biscuit earlier, but it doesn't now... for what it's worth.

Somebody has paid for these names to be listed. Uncle Fatty's is just the worst, greasiest food ever at a ridiculous price, and I agree with the reviews on Flying Biscuit and Cameron Bar and Grill. They have a common denominator, same owner- and they all suck!

Add David's Dumpling and Noodle Bar and Players Retreat for 2 good eats next door to each other.

I ate at the Flying Biscuit once last year. I was not impressed. I ordered the fried green tomato BLT, not good at all. If you want good fried green tomatoes- go to 18 Seaboard!

Can't agree with your comements on Flying Biscuit. A group of us went there and the milk used in the grits was spoiled. Made our entire party sick. Plus, the waitress never got it that they made a mistake even with the obvious bitter taste -- no offer to comp our bill. Last time I'll ever set foot there.
