Located in downtown Greensboro, Crafted wanted their customers to know that they are a taco joint, not a Mexican restaurant.

Crafted also offers options for vegetarians and vegans.
Though it's not mentioned on the giant sign out front, Yum-Yum is known for serving the best dogs in town. Sandwiched between a perfectly steamed bun, the pink hot dog can be slathered in your choice of condiments, though the most popular combination would be chili, coleslaw, mustard and fresh onions. Like the sign advertises, visitors should pair their dog with a Cheerwine soda (cherry soda) and finish off the meal with a milkshake or a scoop of homemade ice cream, which the locals rave about. The stand has existed for decades, and is popular with the locals and the University of North Carolina students. Don't let the long lines daunt you - the service is quick and the food is cheap.
