This is our go to place when we don't want to cook lunch.We like to take the grandkids there because they enjoy ordering their own food. Food is always cooked perfect and FAST. They are usually busy, but there is basically no wait time.,

Almost didn't find the place as locals all refer to this as "Percy Flowers" or just "Percy's" - as in "Let go get a dog at Percy's." Percy Flowers, "The King of the Moonshiners", was the man behind the whole Flowers operation out here just...More

Their hotdogs are delicious! My husband says they have great burgers too. Cute country store and the ladies running the registers are a lot of fun.

When in Clayton, NC grab a burger from this joint. They steam their burgers and gives it taste like no other burger I have tasted. One of NC's great hidden places to try.

This place has been around for years.... combination grill and convenience store. The burgers are hand patted from fresh ground beef daily. And the hot dogs are almost famous.... the chili makes the difference. Nice place to stop for a good dog or burger.

This is a fun little country store (locals call it Percy Flowers) located off Hwy. 42 in Johnston County, NC. They serve the best hot dogs (red ones) with great chili. Hamburgers are good too. If you are lucky, you might even catch a bluegrass...More
