Good Casual Eats in Greensboro

I'm looking for places that meet the requirements of the subject and aren't expensive and are open on Sunday afternoons. I am aware of Print Works, GVG, Sweet Basil and Lucky 32 which I think are still not as casual as what the other party is looking for. On another forum I saw the following, but don't know anything about them...

Vintage 301
Country BBQ
Lindley Filling Station
Giacomo's (open on Sunday? IS there a website?)
Cafe Europa
Smith Street Diner
Gnam Gnam Gelato

Anyone have other suggestions? Please no Indian or Mexican.

Lucky 32 Restaurant

      Agreed! Not only does Natty Greene's have some very excellent beers, their food is quite good.

    2. Lindley Park Filling Station is one of my go-to casual Sunday lunch places. They have a wonderful roast beef sub with rosemary mayo that I get almost everytime I go...great pimento cheese, soups, fried green tomatoes, homemade Ranch dressing (which is a must for me)...

      When I want breakfast, I always go to Smith Street Diner...Biscuits the size of your head although I love their pancakes, they are super-sweet and almost crisp on the edges...The omelets are unreal and you can fill them with as many toppings as you want for one price...The are so big that I can only eat half, I take the other half for lunch later...The coffee there is exceptional...

      Giacomo's is open on Sundays, at least the one on New Garden is...They always have good deli sandwiches with fresh ingredients although I don't find it comfortable to socialize there...I think of it as more of an "eat and run" place...

      The best biscuits in town are at Country BBQ, in my opinion...If you go, get the pork tenderloin biscuit...Their BBQ is great also...

      You go to Cafe Europa for the atmosphere...Great for dining alfresco so if the weather is nice, that is a good idea...The food is good...

      I love Mario's Pizza (for good authenic NY Pizza) or PieWorks (for something different). I also love Tara Thai (on Dolley Madison) and Pho Hein Voung (on Spring Garden).

      Cafe Europa
      200 N Davie St Ste 15, Greensboro, NC 27401

      Spring Garden

      Tara Thai

      New Garden Restaurant
      1403 Warm Springs Rd Ste B, Columbus, GA 31904

      1. Country Barbeque is closed on Sundays.

        1. Thanks for the suggestions. I think we've decided to pick up somethings from Giacomos and picnic at Bicentennial Park. The weather at last check should be gorgeous. Does Giacomos do bread along with coldcuts or is it strictly charcuterie to go?

            They have everything you will need. Good choice!!!!

            1. re: lutherben

              Yes but they are expensive and must have had a new worker as they were incredibly slow. Everything was tasty though. I was hoping they would have had some Sfogiatelle or Arancini, but they did not.
