Winston-Salem Favorites

These are my favorite places around town. Feel free to share your favorite Winston-Salem favorite haunts in the comments. I’m sure I forgot a favorite or two on this first round, so I’ll regularly update this page.


Restaurants & Bars
Coffee & Such


Note: These are places that I regularly visit and where I spend my own money on their products, food and services. I was not compensated to include any business on this list.

Love this list and didn’t know about some of these places! I also love to shop at Nekkid Dave and Monkees in Reynolda Village.

How have I never even heard of Nekkid Dave?

I like Hero House for gyros, Greek salads & souvlaki. And I require their chocolate cake once a month!

oooh, that reminds me that I haven’t been to Hero House forever! And I’ve never tried their chocolate cake. Thanks for the comment! :)

Hi Teri! I’m a regular reader & new blogger. I like that you added a hometown tab. I’m very passionate about supporting local businesses. I hope that we can connect. I love your blog. Happy New Year!

Hi Joi! Thanks for commenting! I agree – supporting local business is so important. Happy new year to you too!

As far as sushi is concerned, Oriental Cafe of off Hanes Mall has excellent sushi! I have heard mixed reviews on their other dishes but I don’t think a bad word can be said about their sushi. Not only is it fresh and delicious, they come up with some fantastic ways to present the rolls! Hands down the best sushi in Winston.

So cool that you live in Winston! Me too! Sometimes I feel like I’m the only Winston blogger ;) haha! You have some great suggestions on here. I’m a vegetarian, and am sad to say I haven’t tried a lot of these restaurants! I need to get on it!

I also like K-9 doggy bakery and 3pooches in paradise (dog walkers and dog sitters). (For those dog lovers in the Winston-Salem area!)

After I originally commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me
when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the same comment.
Perhaps there is a way you are able to remove me from that service?

hi! there should be an option to unsubscribe in the emails you get. Have you tried using that option?

I have been following your blog off-and-on for a little over a year. I am in Winton-Salem on business today and am using your suggestions above to choose the restaurant for dinner :)

Oh awesome! Welcome to town! Where did you end up eating? The Big Eat is going on (awesome price on a one-dish special at restaurants around town) so I hope you stumbled into one of those options too! Usually pretty fun.

Hey Teri,

Having just moved to Winston, I’m so excited to have just found your blog. My husband and I really love Foothills (for their beer, more than their food) and Small Batch (for both food and drinks). We’ll definitely be trying some of the other places you suggested that we haven’t been to yet, and I’ll be following your blog, too. Thanks!

Hey Cara,

Welcome to WS! Let me know if I can help with any other recommendations! This list is old – I should update it! :)
