Their hotdogs are delicious! My husband says they have great burgers too. Cute country store and the ladies running the registers are a lot of fun.

When in Clayton, NC grab a burger from this joint. They steam their burgers and gives it taste like no other burger I have tasted. One of NC's great hidden places to try.

The Grocery Bag serves the best red Carolina packer hotdogs breakfast/lunch/dinner. Prepare like you like it. Chili, ketchup, mustard is my favorite. Grab you a drink from the back & a bag of chip around the cashier & you are set.
