hi SaraO--
i don't know if you will be staying in raleigh or durham, so not sure what to recommend. i live in raleigh and don't eat out much (PA, TNA, etc.), but one restaurant i do enjoy is Piccola Italia (italian food, also good pizza) in a shopping center called Cameron Village. another one i like is the Rockford (downtown area, trendy with bar)--good eggplant sandwich. a more casual place would be Char-Grill, which has several locations in Raleigh--it's an eat-in or take-out burgers and fries sort of place. the only nuts i know of there are in the brownies, i always get the grilled chicken sandwich. :-) one place NOT to go is Jersey Mike's--it's a sub chain that's all over the area. i found out (almost the hard way) that they serve pb&j sandwiches on the kid's menu and prepare them right there with the rest of the subs, slice them with the same big knife. yuck.

Thanks for the advice. We are staying closer to Durham but the friends we are visiting said Raliegh was close enough and any place to eat would be good if it was safe. I appreciate the advice as this is our first trip since we found out about the peanut allergy. I'll take note of your suggestions.....THANKS!
