Country-style cooking, eight days a week.” Smith Street Diner’s tagline, printed on the side of the building, on the door, and on the menu, is one of the quirky inside jokes that has stuck since the Greensboro diner’s inception in 2005. The place is justly famous for serving the biggest biscuit in the ‘Boro: There are about baker’s dozen styles of biscuits in the South, and the one served here is a cathead biscuit (so named because it’s as big as a cat’s head). It is located at 438 Battleground Ave, Greensboro, North Carolina.
The buttery, crumbly rounds are a fine match for all manner of breakfast fixings, like scrambled eggs, bacon, or local Neese’s sausage with a side of sausage gravy. Doctor up your breakfast biscuit with a glug or two of tangy Boar & Castle sauce (invented by an old-school Greensboro restaurant of the same name) or take things sweet with a side of homemade apple butter. Don’t miss the fried chicken special on Thursdays, when owner Beth Kizhnerman (who is a classically trained chef) fries up her signature birds dredged in buttermilk and hot sauce. They have over one thousand reviews on google giving them four-point-four star reviews.
Lee Comer had three words in mind when she opened Iron Hen Cafe in Greensboro — Fresh. Local. Good.
Before she developed the first menu, before she even inked a lease to the building, she settled on those three words. They describe everything she wanted her restaurant to become. For that reason, those words became the restaurant’s slogan, which you won’t soon forget if you look around. It’s everywhere. It is located at 908 Cridland Rd, Greensboro, North Carolina.
Comer says it’s not just about the food, though. It’s about building a community that wants to know where its food comes from, whether it is chicken, beef, or eggs. And the eggs are extremely important at the Iron Hen. What with omelets, scrambles, and Benedicts on the breakfast and brunch menu, the restaurant needs a constant supply of beautiful eggs. Consider, too, that with every salad and sandwich served at lunch and supper, the Iron Hen includes its signature “Very Good” deviled egg on the plate. This is why they have over one thousand reviews on google giving them four-point-three star reviews.
“The instant gratification we receive from a happy customer” and “the familiar faces that have continued to support us over the past three decades” are two of the things that Chris Maness, owner of Jams Deli, loves most about the restaurant business.
Chris opened the first Jams Delilocation after 10 years in the restaurant business. The goal: serving high-quality sandwiches at competitive prices. He opened the first Jams Deli in Greensboro, NC in 1988 in the Quaker Village building that currently houses Boston Market. After only five years, Jams outgrew that 33 seat restaurant and moved to a larger location at 5707 West Friendly Avenue. The business has since expanded to two Greensboro locations, adding a Jams Deli at 2920-F Martinsville Road in October 2013. Chris Owned the Martinsville Road Location for 5 years selling it to another gentleman in July 2018.
They have over five hundred reviews on google giving them four-point-six star reviews. Jams Deli promises quick service, but not fast food. Chris maintains that promise by being hands-on at the Friendly Ave location. Where he thrives on the rush from busy lunch and dinner services and making his customers happy. “We like being a part of the community and part of the neighborhoods we are in [and] knowing our regular customers by the first name.”
