Winston-Salem offers good ol’ American fare amidst a mouth-watering backdrop of international flavor. Eating home alone in Winston-Salem temporary housing just won’t do, especially when the weather outside is almost always just right and the food is prepared with such finesse that every meal is a gastronomical experience.
- The Old Fourth St Filling Station on the corner of West 4th St and Summit St.: Simply great food and comfortable dining atmosphere amidst friends that a new visitor would make very quickly. The menu is appetizing and the preparation is on the mark. Even if you make this your frequent haunt, you won’t be stuck with the the same old food. The menu is always changing, just ask your server.
- Burke St Pizza on Burke St NW: The trip out to Burke St would be pretty worth it if you are in the mood for New York style pizza. They were voted the number one pizzaria, six years in a row which is a feat in itself. They have two locations including the one on Burke. The other is on Robinhood Rd. Give them a call at 336-721-0011, if you would rather they deliver. Try the Pizza Bianco if you’re vegetarian.
- Rose’s Deli on the corner of University Pkwy. and Bethabra Station Blvd.: A serene family-owned deli that is clean and appetizing. There is even a patio out back that adds a twist to the southern charm you usually find in Winston-Salem. The food is amazing and undoubtedly home to Winston-Salem’s best hoagie. There are a lot of other deli items on the menu as well.
- Sakura Japanese Restaurant on S Stratford Rd.: In the heart of the south, you will find the one of the best Japanese foods that is as innovative as it is incredible. Superb sushi, terrific tempura and brilliant bentos are here for you within a friendly and relaxed atmosphere that is indicative of the south. Try the shrimp tempura and soft shell crab.
- Red Hot and Blue on Deacon Blvd just off University Pkwy.: This is the same Red Hot and Blue you’ve find in some other states, with the addition there of southern hospitality and a little extra zing in the barbecue sauce. Somehow the southern flavors seem to be in the air and infuse everything that you order.
The food here in Winston-Salem is just as good as you can get anywhere else in North Carolina. It’s always good whether its a high-priced designer menu, or a folksy family-owned kitchen or a national chain. It doesn’t matter where you eat here, one thing you will be spoiled while you go back to your temporary housing in Winston-Salem everyday.
