Need restaurant recos for Garner NC area
We are spending a long weekend in Garner, 4/19/12. I know there is a bounty of chain restaurants--so please help with recommendations for good food as nearby as possible. Fancy…and not! Thank you.
I don't know of anything particularly great in Garner. A few miles east is Clayton. I've heard that Lucky Chicken (Peruvian) there is very good, and Festejos may have good Mexican there. I haven't been to either. A few miles south of Garner is Stephenson's, where you can get decent eastern NC style BBQ. Then of course just a few miles NW of Garner is Raleigh, where you'd find plenty of good options. Taqueria El Toro is a great place on the south side of the city, but it wouldn't take you long at all to go just a little bit farther to downtown Raleigh. You should be able to find plenty of recommendations for downtown Raleigh on other threads.
