The Root Trackside

Reviewed By Frank L - Burlington, United States

Dropped in for a quick lunch on a Saturday. Nice food variety offered for mid-day, but decided to go with the featured signature house burger with its interesting, yum/yum toppings. Boy, what a great and filling choice! My selected side choice was the corn chowder, which I highly recommend. I'll be back for these winners!

I love Greek food and have eaten at restaurants all over and this is the best! The gyro meat is super tasty and the chicken mediterranean wrap is so delicious. A must stop when I am in Burlington.

NC Jelly Donuts

Reviewed By James G - Summerfield NC

Stopped in for desert today and this was a great surprise. The donuts were huge and the cinnamon rolls were huge. The neat thing is they fill your donut when you order it. That's so cool, the prices were good and the service was quick.

Pretty much the usual donut shop, but not a cookie cutter chain. Very good donuts and muffins. Makes a great place to go for dessert after eating at the Greek restaurant in the same small shopping center.

We ate here with a couple we visited Greece with recently, which may impact my rating as I am comparing it to Greek food in Greece. I found the gyros ok but nothing special, and have a real prejudice against shredded lettuce in salads (or anything, it has the taste and consistency of shredded newspaper). Certainly nothing horrible but to me nothing memorable either.

Little <a href=Italy Pizza & Italian Restaurant">

Restaurant DescriptionWelcome to Little Italy Pizza & Italian Restaurant. Located conveniently off of I-40 in University Commons Shopping Center, this family friendly restaurant is your place for authentic Italian cuisine.Head Chef/Owner Gino Carannante and his wife Lisa&apos;s passion for good food inspired the opening of Little Italy Pizza & Italian Restaurant in Burlington in 2007. In his home country of Italy, the art of cooking is a tradition. In fact, Gino&apos;s first cooking lessons were times spent as a kid observing his mother while she busily prepared food in the kitchen for the family. It was the same philosophy and long standing appreciation for technique and flavor that he puts into each dish they serve.We are very well known for the superior quality of our pizza, calzones and strombolis. We also serve a variety of subs and Philly cheese steaks. But, our customers also love our homemade lasagna, chicken parmesan and fettuccini Alfredo.At Little Italy, we make sure that each customer feels at home, just like family! This sense of family is what distinguishes us from other business in our area. Our restaurant is one of the few family owned and operated Italian restaurants in Burlington, not to mention by a true Italian chef.

Not being familiar with the area, stumbled upon this family run restaurant. Service was very friendly. Typical Italian restaurant offerings-good pizza and salads. Veal entree was a bit tough. Really enjoyed the bread dipped in oil--very yummy. When bill arrived, there were no prices-the waitress directed us to pay up front where the gentleman seemed to have all the menu prices memorized. Good value. We will definitely be back if return to the area.

Luigi's Pizza

Reviewed By Amy E

Our family stopped here last night for dinner to celebrate my daughter's birthday after her soccer game at Southern Alamance High School. We ordered the Monday special- a large one topping for $9.99. We got an extra cheese pizza and a sausage pizza. The pizzas were very good and a great value for the price. The service was very good as well. We would eat here again if in the area.

Tangent Eat+Bar

Thoughtfully created, flavorful, scratch made food and drink

Reviewed By CoachJTL - Franklin, NC

Love authentic and flavorful Mexican American food. Combinations were unique and creative and several gluten free options. Eatery was cute with a cozy ambiance. It was laid back, and I can see why anyone in college would frequent it. Inexpensive compared to what you get, and several options for a small or large appetite. This is a must stop.

European inspired, Carolina made Coffeehouse & Crêperie, offering bangin&apos; coffee & killer crêpes in historic downtown Graham, NC.

Reviewed By Olga C - Greensboro, NC

I ordered portobello crepe and it was fantastic! A crepe was a little too thick for my personal liking (I make my own and like them very light and thin), but the vegetable and the glaze made up in taste! Highly recommend.Thanks Olga! Crepes definitely come in all thicknesses and types - ours do lend to a little bigger and more savory. We really appreciate the review!

Pregos

Reviewed By Meritas - Apex, NC

Thanks to TripAdvisor reviews, we stopped by Pregos for lunch, while on a road trip (five minutes off of I-85, exit 141/Huffman Mill Rd). Pregos offers many of the Italian staples--pastas, a variety of parmigiana dishes, salads, etc. (no pizza). Our lunch was delicious, the setting is lovely (white tablecloth) wait staff was delightful. Thanks to TripAdvisor, we've found a popular restaurant frequented by locals and look forward to returning!
