Coopers has been in downtown Raleigh since 1938 serving the same food. This place is famous for their pork BBQ but equally good and better for you is the Chopped Chicken barbeque which is really delicious. They actually offer some vegetables that are somewhat healthy. The decor is the same as it always has been but could stand some renovation. For example some of the counter stools have been replaced by wooden stools that aren't the same thing.
Couple hints for folks outside Raleigh. You have to pay to park in downtown there is no free parking. If you are staying at the two main downtown hotels, it is a very easy walk. Second, they only accept cash. However if you are visiting Raleigh and want to try some of North Carolina's finest BBQ this is the place to go. Prices are VERY LOW.
