My buddy John and I met in Wilson the other day for lunch. He's left Nash County, but somehow over the course of his life missed dining at one of our neighboring county's finest icons: Dick's Hot Dog Stand.
Many stories have been written about this place, so I won't belabor the point. It was the first time I'd set foot in there without seeing Soc, the founder's son and proprietor for the better part of a half century. Lee, the grandson, was still ringing the register, and the wait staff, while different faces, fit the same, kind, smiling profile as ever.
