Goldsboro Dinner Recs Please...

picklelicious Sep 8, 2011 04:29 AM

I'm taking a few reps out for dinner next Tuesday night in the Goldsboro area. I've been to Goldsboro many times, although not much recently, and I generally find myself dining at the same old places like The Outback, or Logans, or something of that nature. What we're looking for is somewhere to have dinner and a few beers/cocktails, a steakhouse or Italian restaurant, or really whatever, just something at least decent...I don't know what the best options are, perhaps Outback and Logan's are it, but I thought I would seek the advice of some fellow chowhounds before making my decision.

    Los Fogones has gotten some good remarks on here; I haven't been, but it's apparently a Peruvian parillada/pollo a la brasa place.

    Personally, I always go to La Cuata in Dudley when I'm in the area, but it's small and I don't know if they have alcohol, so it may not meet your requirements. Food is superb, though. Stick to the specials board if it's out; even if it isn't, ask about specials. Soups and stews are where it's at here.

    You might consider going to Chef and the Farmer in Kinston. IIRC Kinston is 20-30 minutes away.

      We'll look at that as an option...is it worth the drive, or just stick with chains in Goldsboro?

        It's definitely worth a 20-30 minute drive, especially if the alternative is Logan's or Outback; two of the more dire chains, in my opinion. Cocktails are good there, too.

            Chef and the Farmer is definitely worth the trip! If you go on a weekend and want an earlier meal I'd make reservations!

              Yea, I looked at the menu for Chef and Farmer, and I just didn't think it would work for the group I had last night, so I took us "down under" to the Outback for a hopefully forgettable meal.

              Chef and Farmer is now on my radar though, and at some point I will give it a shot. Looks like an attempt at some serious eats based on their menu options.

      I would suggest Torrero's. It is a mexican restaurant that serves good food in large portions and they have alcohol. I personally have never went but I have heard great things about Village Steak House and Pub from my Co Workers. Just some ideas since you seem tired of the Chain places.
