Crook’s Turns 30

One of Chapel Hill’s best loved restaurants is turning 30.  Crook’s Corner has long offered barbecue as an afterthought on its menu of southern staples (shrimp and grits) and innovative originals (Cheese Pork!, anyone?).  Although Crook’s has been hailed as “Sacred ground for Southern foodies” by the New York Times, their barbecue has never been anything particularly special–not even cooked on site, but rather “imported” from Bullock’s in Durham and marked up in price significantly.  However, Crook’s is an excellent restaurant and they are celebrating their 30th with a barbecue bash tonight.
