Yes, you read the title right! This week’s meal deal can be found at a pharmacy. If you haven’t been there yet, stepping into this pharmacy/grill located between Historic Oakwood and Historic Mordecai will make you feel like you’ve been taken back in time. We were intrigued with the idea of a fully functioning pharmacy and the addition of a fountain and grill under one roof so we decided to give it a try.
You know it’s a great spot when you walk in and see a few elderly folks sitting around a table reminiscing about the old days, eating their meals, telling stories of when they were teenagers causing trouble around town and having no urgency to leave anytime soon. In short, we fell in love with this place before we even ordered our food – and the food is good.
Person Street Pharmacy’s Fountain offers everything from breakfast served all day, sandwiches, salads, soups, burgers, hot dogs, ice cream and more! Burgers and sandwiches range in price from $3.95-5.95 and you can turn it into a lunch plate by adding fries and a drink for $2.95 which fits in nicely with our meal deals.
It was the Wednesday grill special that we came in for – 2 hot dogs for $0.99 which includes mustard & ketchup, extras are$0.25 and you can add chili and slaw for $0.50. We ordered 2 chili cheese dogs each as well as a medium Orangeade and medium Cherry Smash. We watched as the hot dogs were constructed using split top buns, Carolina Packers’ Bright Leaf Hot Dogs, topped with cheese sauce and a hearty amount of chili. They were then placed into the flash steamer which (in case you didn’t know) is key to blending all of the delicious flavors together while making the bun soft and warm.
We sat at a small table enjoying our drinks, soon after our food was delivered with the most pleasant service. The first bite had a great balance of flavors and the bun held up well against the chili. The hot dog itself had a nice snap which played well with the toppings.
The Orangeade was freshly squeezed and had a refreshing sweetness while the Cherry Smash brought back memories of old school fountain drinks. Simple food, done right.
The total for our bill was less than $10 (4 hot dogs for $1.98 + $2 in toppings + $4.30 in drinks = $8.28 + tax) which means it was less than $5 per person. If we opted for ice water as our drinks our bill would have been cut in half! Not only is this a great deal but it’s also a delicious meal which gets Raleigh Happening’s seal of approval.
