restaurant: Southern Pines Restaurant - Not a good review - 11/19/10 04:29 PM

restaurant: Fratello's, a New Restaurant in Southern Pines - 11/14/10 08:36 AM

There are many restaurants from which to choose in Southern Pines, NC, and this is a favorite among my friends.
Tripp's Restaurant in Southern Pines
This is a chain restaurant which I believe is mostly through out the southern regions.  There is one in our area, and for a chain I think it is quite nice.  The service is usually quite good, and I have had one of the best steaks here, and the menu has many options. Besides the occasional steak, I usually like to have a healthier selection, and there are many on Tripp's menu.
There is also a very good … (0 comments)
