My husband and I were visiting Raleigh getting ready to relocate to the area. We were visiting a local business and decided to stop at Pipers for a bit of lunch. We were waited on by the owner's son...very attentive and personable. I had their daily special, a meatball sandwich. It was one of the best sandwiches ever, very tender and tasty! We're from Chicago and there is no shortage of restaurants, good and bad. I'd like to think that I've had my share of good and bad restaurant experiences and Pipers ranks as one of the good ones.
