Bubba's interiors are simple to the core—wood paneled walls, linoleum floors and a tiled ceiling. Country music plays, not on a juke box, or live, but on a speaker. But all of the above doesn't bother patrons at all. It offers the finest slow cooked pork and homemade Bubba sauces that everyone hankers for. Hickory wood is used in the process and hence hickory smoke flavor exudes from your succulent chunks of meat. Go for the Packman Platter or the ribs and chicken. And round it off with a Hot Fudge Sunday, maybe on a Sunday!

Shrimp, scallops, chicken, tuna and lobsters all wind their way inside Cabos' famous tacos. And if you couple the generous taco portions with salad then make sure you are genuinely hungry.

In the "small stuff" section, go for the Martini Shrimp Slurry or Cabo Roll and in the "big stuff" indulge in the Rosarito Fajitas. Wash it all down with sweetened or unsweetened iced tea, coke, ginger ale or the several juices on offer.

For those in the know around Charlotte, the Old Hickory House is a regular destination for grub. Not to be confused with Jimmy Carter's favorite of the same name in Atlanta, this restaurant serves up genuine Carolinian BBQ and Brunswick Stew. The interior decor is distinctly blue-collar, giving it a charm all of its own, with service that's all about genuine Southern hospitality. Come on in, and order up a glass of sweet tea to wash down some of the best barbecue you can get.
For lunch, enjoy fresh salads and made-to-order sandwiches. Dinnertime finds the salads and sandwiches joined by sushi rolls and other small plates. As tasty as they are, food items at Therapy play second fiddle to the place's drink menu. Therapy boasts wide selections of premium and imported beers, wines, sakes, and tequilas. "Spirited" milkshakes like "Jamaican Me Crazy" and "Banana Split Personality" include decidedly non-traditional ingredients as jamaican rum and banana liqueur. Of course, Therapy is perhaps most famous for its signature double martinis. With names like "Freudian Sip" and "Sex in the Queen City," expect the unexpected.
