Ham & Pimiento Cheese – Toasted; Elliotts Pharmacy and Soda Fountain

Our second item to be dubbed Stupid Good hails from a tiny soda fountain in a strangely named town. Elliott’s Pharmacy in Fuquay-Varina, NC. http://elliottspharmacy.spidlewebs.info/epmenu.html Reminiscent of Mr. Gower’s store in Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life, Elliotts is one of the best representations of Main Street USA that you could find.

The whole experience is delightful. Hometown service at its best. But it is the perfectly toasted bread and the oozing pimiento cheese that make me yearn for a return visit. The sandwich is the perfect texture combination.  The tastes blend together perfectly in your mouth. However, a note of caution, if prepared properly, the ham is a bit slippery. Watch that you don’t let it slip out on the floor when you raise your sandwich to your mouth.
