Greensboro, North Carolina bleg

Soon, I am likely to have one meal in or near Greensboro, with access to a car.  Where should I go?  You all know what standards to apply.

Recently moved there. I have been hearing good reviews of Table 16. I recently ate at The Printworks Bistro, which disappointed. If you're looking for good NC BBQ, I recommend Prissy Polly's in Kernersville, which is approx. a 15 min drive.

Over the holidays I had the Mediterranean seabass special at Green Valley Grill. Yum! But by all means, go to the Woolworth's Civil Rights Museum. That trumps food. I found that your Milton Friedman video makes more sense if after every sentence you add "for white males."

Greensboro is bunk. Go to the Village Tavern in Reynolda Village in Winston-Salem. Or head to Tate's in downtown Winston-Salem.

I think we all know it's all about the Green Valley Grill, so DavidWhite is spot on. I have family out over there, wish I could fly over every week. Check it out http://www.greenvalleygrill.com/menus&winelist.ht...

I don't live in the area but having driven through many times heading to VA, I'd say that Lexington BBQ #1 in Lexington is worth a 45 min drive.

I recommend Ingut's Swedish Pit. Haven't been in town for a few years, but that was always my favorite pit stop.

Mozelle's Fresh Southern Bistro in Winston-Salem is excellent. Others have told me it's one of the best in the Triad area.

Prissy Polly's in Kernersville is the best BBQ. I also enjoy the Green Valley Grill for a more upscale option. Are you just stopping by on your way elsewhere?

Have to third Bojangles. My first stop any time I make it back to the Southeast.

Stamey's is fine, but it's not special (atmosphere? it feels like a diner). You'd be better off driving to Allen and Son's and making Mungo meet you there.

Best small-town barbeque: head about 25 minutes southwest to Thomasville and eat at Tommy's Barbeque. They are probably closed on Sundays, but should be open otherwise. Tommy's has NC's local ultra-sweetened soft drink, Cheerwine on tap. For the meal, I would recommend the chopped platter with rolls (to make sandwiches), hush puppies and tots.

Bojangles (fast food, numerous locations) has the best fried chicken, and their seasoned fries are quite tasty.

Was impressed by Acropolis Restaurant (Greek, obv) on N Eugene St near downtown by the baseball stadium, after a week and a half of eating barbequeue pork sandwiches in the area (delicious but needed a change)

Avoid Stamey's. Nice enough folks, but the pork has zero character. Went out of my way to get there, and just...blah.

Gotta go to the Bo

Bojangles: great fried chicken, biscuits, and sweet tea. Out of this world cajun-spiced fries

K&W Cafeteria: authentic, down-home Southern cooking served from a lunch line.

Skip the barbecue. It's much better in the eastern part of the state.

Definitely the new civil rights museum, maybe battle of guilford courthouse
Nice weather, casual: natty greene's brew pub patio
BBQ: why not go to Lexington for Lexington-style q?
Fancy restaurants: green valley grill or fleming's
