~ Gypsy's was constructed in Florida and trucked to NC on 6 over-sized tractor-trailers up I-95 and then onto I-40. Once the trucks reached the NC border, they were met by 2 state highway patrol cars for an escort (required by NC law for super over-sized loads). Once the diner reached Cary, the state patrol assisted the Cary police department in stopping traffic while an over-sized crane set the diner on its foundation. It was a true sight to see!!!

Gypsy's has won many dining awards and has been featured in documentaries, on TV shows, on commercials, CD covers, featured in photo shoots, and print ads. You can always count on Gypsy's being on the local "scavenger hunt" list at least once a month.
