Goodnight Raleigh - a look at the art, architecture, history, and people of the city at night

Sadlack’s Heroes

Sadlack’s Heroes is a bar/venue/sandwich joint on Hillsborough Street. Several months ago they did a complete renovation which was pretty much knocking down the previous building and rebuilding it in a similar fashion. It has plenty of outdoor seating.

Normally I don’t do sandwiches for dinner, but this place wins an exception every time. In my opinion, they have hands down THE BEST sandwich in Raleigh. I also don’t do fried foods, but their homemade chips (or fries) are so tasty that they are worth the unhealthiness that goes with fried items.

The location is a favorite for me personally, as it’s about a 2 minute walk from my house. Additionally, the location provides a great bird’s eye view of the Bell Tower intersection of Hillsborough St. Perhaps the biggest reason I am such a fan of this place is that it is a dog-friendly establishment (outside, anyhow). I generally pass by this place when walking the pup, and it’s neat that often there will be a dog or two hanging out on the patio for mine to play with.

This place is a Raleigh legend. If you haven’t been before, stop by and find out for yourself why it is.
