Meats: Clark's Sausage and Pork Outlet/ Rocky Point NC. Made this wonderful discovery a few years back when searching for Paul's Place famous hot dogs. We stop ever time on the way in to Topsail. It is exit 408 coming in on I40...left to Topsail( 45 min-1 hr.)right to Rocky Point( 5 min.). This is a meat market of days gone by. They are market vs an outlet. Their products are FRESH,FRESH, FRESH. Love their pork products...the fresh sausage for breakfast and sausage balls etc, pork chops and ribs for the grill, country ham/city ham/bacon, quality beef also. We bring a cooler just for our stop at Clarks. They do have a web page.
If you enjoy Diners/Drive Ins and Dives...make the trip to Pauls Place. Good dogs and their Hot Dog Relish is very unique and good. It also good on hamburgers. I have created a fan base for the Relish and purchase 6 jars each time for home and to share.
Hope you have a wonderful Topsail vacation with many wonderful memories.
