OK. This is late notice, but I just found out that I'm meeting for lunch in the Greensboro area tomorrow. Any suggestions for something near I-85. Any exit in the area. Thanks.

    Better choices in Greensboro near 85 can be a bit tough. The best options are a little ways away. Your best bet is the Holden Rd. exit. From there you can easily reach Lucky 32 or Green Valley Grill, both of which have a great Sunday Brunch/Lunch. They do a good job with local and seasonal ingredients. They're about ten minutes down the road from 85.

      Nocturnalbill is correct that there is very little in close proximity to I-85. Just as an fyi Lucky 32 and Green Valley Grill are more like 15 -20 minutes off the highway. Another option would be to exit at South Elm-Eugene Street and go to downtown, which is about 10 minutes off the highway. Lucky 32, Cafe Europa, Natty Greene's and Ganache are all open on Sunday and would be good choices, depending on what type of food and atmosphere you're looking for. Just check out a map first and make sure you take the correct I-85...its very confusing!

        nchound is absolutely correct. If it were me I would take the extra time and hit green valley grill.

          I went with a little more distance, rather than downtown, which is nearly as intimidating as picking an 85. I certainly second the other options listed though. I should have said that if I'm driving it's ten minutes, which is to say inadvisable speeds involved.

          Thanks for all the tips on such a short notice. I'll punch the address of the Green Valley Grill into the GPS, and give it a shot.

            Report back and let us know what you thought. A lot of us around Gboro freely admit to be shameless shills for all of QW Group's restaurants.
