Wake Forest Restaurant Review – Dunkin’ Donuts

The local Wake Forest Dunkin’ Donuts is a hidden gem. Tucked away in a Shell gas station at 1009 Durham Road, you’ll find the tasty treats and coffee through a side entrance or by using the drive-thru. The staff is always friendly, the management will chat you up, and the service is always stellar and comes with a smile. In ... Read More »

Wake Forest Restaurant Review – Wendy’s

Wendy’s recently upgraded the local Wendy’s and boy was it worth it. If you haven’t been there since it reopened, you should visit. They offer free Wifi and it even feels like a nice place to take your laptop to get some work done. See if you can score one of the seats over near the fake fireplace for a ... Read More »

Cackalacky Stuff For Sale at NC General Stores

Honestly, we didn’t even know what Cackalacky was but a search of Cackalacky discovered it is used in place of Carolina. As in North Cackalacky. In that case we need a case of it. Okay, maybe just the bumper sticker you can buy at NC General Stores in Wake Forest. We think it would keep people from tailgating. Bonus! And ... Read More »

And for those that don’t like seafood, don’t go ... Read More »

Cannizzaro’s Pizzeria is Fantastic

Cannizzaro's Pizzeria

Cannizzaro’s is the latest occupant of one of the cutest local places to eat in Wake Forest. The dinning room, if you can call it that, can probably hold a total of 30 people but that’s just fine. While the food here is fantastic, it’s a wonderful place to go for the brick walls and old wood floors, as well. ... Read More »

Panera – Beautiful Food

Shrimp Salad Sandwich

My father has this thing about soup. He always wants to go some place to eat that has a selection of impressive soups, even on the hottest days. Panera Bread fills the bill with an impressive choice of soups each day along with a combination of breakfast treats, lunch sandwiches, and tasty bakery treats; sweet stuff, bagels, and bread. The ... Read More »

PDQ is Not to be Missed

PDQ is located over near where the Chick-fil-A is located. Based on the former lines out the driveway for Chck-fil-A everyone knows where that is. The recent opening of the Wake Forest PDQ (People Dedicated to Quality) marks the third location in the Raleigh area. The staff of the Wake Forest News can’t say enough good things about PDQ. The ...
