- bataille2 Nov 18, 2010 03:53 PM
hi. we'll be pulling into winston-salem on t'giving & staying for a week. we'll be heading to chapel hill for a day(eating at lantern)but we'll be doing side trips up to floyd va. looking for bbq recs & any other food recommendations ranging from high end to low end & any end in between. i'm from the south(living in cali now)& my partner was born in winston-salem(we're there to see her family).
any ideas are greatly appreciated.
If you want to experience some great NC bbq near Winston-Salem, head down to Lexington (about 30 minutes) and go to Lexington #1. Otherwise, you might want to do a search on here for previous posts, such as:
Plenty of good restaurants in the links jla provided above, so I'll add a few other food things you might want to try:
--Go to Winkler's Bakery in Old Salem for some Moravian cookies. The chocolate dipped ones are especially awesome. And if you're feeling really indulgent, get a Moravian sugar cake. It has only a little bit of butter and sugar in it (wink, wink).
--The Gelato Cafe on Reynolda at Hanes Park is definitely worth a stop. Careful though; that stuff is addicting!
--If you want to take a giant step back in time, stop by Ronnie's Country Store on N. Cherry St. (near the police station). They have anything and everything you'd expect plus a lot more--fresh produce, bins of dry beans, an incredible old-fashioned candy selection, a full service country ham counter in the back, locally-made pickles and preserves, and even a large drum of sorghum molasses from which you can tap as much as you want.
Hope you enjoy your visit!
