Located in downtown Greensboro, Crafted wanted their customers to know that they are a taco joint, not a Mexican restaurant. As such, they have perfected their taco-making techniques with gourmet ingredients and influences from around the globe. Some of their gourmet tacos include the Fedora, with blackened tuna and kim chee, and the Bowtie, with beer battered fish, roasted corn, poblano salsa and sweet chipotle aioli. Crafted also offers options for vegetarians and vegans.

Yum-Yum Better Ice Cream

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.

Fishbones uses only the freshest seafood and produce to make their delicious dishes. Try one of their house specialties, such as the North Carolina farm-raised catfish, which is topped with a house remoulade sauce, and the Cioppino, which is a Italian seafood stew made with clams, shrimp and cod. For night owls, Fishbones even offers a specialty late night menu with sandwiches, tacos, burritos and more.

Try one of their burgers like the North Carolinian, with bacon, a fried green tomato and a fried egg, and the Spicy Goat, with sweet and spicy pepper jelly, goat cheese and bacon. You can also create your own burger using a wide variety of ingredients. There are also plenty of options here to keep vegetarians happy, including house-made mushroom cauliflower and nutty patties.

The menu here is filled with authentic Vietnamese dishes, along with a selection of Thai favorites, at very reasonable prices.

The service that accompanies meals here is very quick and friendly.

Big Burger Spot

Big Burger Spot doesn't refer to the restaurant itself, but to the hamburgers served inside. Each burger is char grilled and very juicy but not greasy. Try specialty burgers like the Smokehouse, with Carolina pork BBQ, cheddar cheese and crispy onions, or the Black & Blue, with applewood-smoked bacon and bleu cheese. Big Burger Spot also offers a large sandwich and smoked meat menu and serves a wide variety of french fries.
