Our Fast Food Guide in #ACC Country


Happy Monday, folks – hope you all are doing well in Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) country.

As we pass the time before college football starts, we thought it would be fun to provide a fast good guide to our ACC readers.  This blog post is a guide to local fast food restaurants – you will see no Burger King, Wendy’s, McDonald’s or Taco Bell on here.  You will see no Pizza Hut or Dominos on here.  You will see no Subway on here.  When you’re on the road watching your favorite ACC team, you will need a place to get some convenient, fast, good-tasting food – and we’re going to serve up a nice little guide for you.  The restaurants below are presented in no order – here we go:

1.     Cookout.
