If your looking for a good hot dog at a great price, best to travel out of your way to The Grocery Bag! Sometimes on Saturday they will have an old country band play some oldies while you wait and eat. Limited seating and limited menus, but good enough!

My wife and I stopped at the Grocery Bag yesterday for one of our favorite lunches. We each got a couple of hot dogs and sat down to eat. As we ate we were treated to a local blue grass band that included the owner of the Grocery Bag and had a great time. I was told they do this... More

I grew up eating here with my family, and now take my family on Saturdays for a quick hot dog. The lunch counter is ran by extremely nice Southern ladies, exhibiting the classic Carolina charm folks around here expect. The building is rich with history, which is being kept alive by the live bluegrass music around lunchtime on Saturdays. Do... More

I love the hot dogs at Flowers Store aka the Grocery Bag I'm not prejudice just because I live around the corner. I've just eaten some of the best including the incomparable Boonies in Rocky Mount NC. I get mine all the way with mayo , slaw and a little BBQ sauce. Sometime that gets a little messy so I... More

I don't know where BBBsteps ate, but I doubt it was the Grocery Bag. I've been going here for over 13 years. 1) The ladies behind the counter are friendly, to everyone I've witnessed during my visits. 2) Their gas is 3.36 right now. According to GasBuddy.com, gas prices in the area run from 3.29-3.42 a gallon. Doesn't look like... More

The hot dogs and cheeseburgers are so good here. There are no side orders such as fries or onion rings.

The gas here is always at least 10 cents (usually more) higher than any gas station within 5 miles. The women working the register & lunch counter are not at all friendly....where is that vaunted Southern Charm? The red hot dogs are really just ok & the whole place is just overpriced & a giant let down. Too bad really... More

Located on the outskirts of Clayton near Flowers Plantation, this place has been around for years. It is a gas station, grocery store, and serves the best Hot Dogs in the state. They're red hots with steamed buns. They also make great hamburgers from fresh meat, not frozen. Kind of like the good old days where you can get two... More
