111 East Main Street, Carrboro
One of the things it's easiest to miss as a vegetarian is disgusting fried bar food, but the veggie-friendly Carrboro mainstay Spotted Dog has you covered on that. Not only do its beer-battered shoestring fries, a husky ochre in color and taste, come covered in a perfectly unwholesome mound of melted cheddar cheese, but they're also dolloped with sour cream, scallions, and—the crucial ingredient—soy bacon bits. Of course, you'll apply ketchup liberally. You can eat like you're in college again without breaking your dietary vows and feel only a little gross afterward. Pair it with the potato soup to find out if a person can actually turn into a potato.
