My wife and I decided to eat out at one of our favorite Raleigh restaurants — Tippy’s Mexican Restaurant — On Hodges Street.
Normally you walk in and within minutes you are at a table. We usually eat at off peak times, but this time was different. We were eating around 6 pm. My wife was coming from home and I was coming from work. She arrived first and gave me a call on my cell phone. “Are you sure you want to eat here. I don’t know when we will eat. They are lined up waiting.” We decided to wait and eat at Tippy’s.
The wait wasn’t a very long wait, maybe 30 minutes. While in line I asked someone, “why the large crowd”. “oh, didn’t you know? Tippy’s is going out of business. Tomorrow will be their last business day”, they replied. What a shock!!! Tippy’s has been in Raleigh since 1968 — The same year that I moved to Raleigh.
I have always enjoyed eating at Tippy’s. The staff was always friendly and the food was always excellent.
Sorry to see you go!!
