The time is winding down for GHOE, and it is only right to prepare all of the attendees with the best spots for them to eat as they enjoy their week.

 Greensboro has food for everyone from little kids to old aggies. Attendees can choose different multicultural restaurants. Greensboro has soul food, Italian, Mexican, and many more different types of restaurants.

            Smith Street Diner is a  hole-in-the-wall breakfast joint. It truly personifies southern cooking. The menu includes classic breakfast food. It is best known for biscuits that are larger than life. Attendees who want a good southern breakfast should put Smith Street Diner in their itinerary for GHOE.

            Dame’s Chicken and Waffles, its name says it all. Dame’s is great soul food and one of the best places to eat in Greensboro. There are so many different things on the menu to choose from: Customers have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of waffles, spreads, and wings.

            Stephanie’s Restaurant is pure southern hospitality. A quaint restaurant that makes you feel like you're sitting in your grandmother’s living room after church service on Sunday. Stephanie’s has menu that includes chicken wings, macaroni and cheese, collard greens, sweet potatoes, and more. It has that family atmosphere and is a perfect place for GHOE attendees to bring their family and friends on Sunday to end their weekend.

            Hop’s Burger Bar is the place to be if you are not in the mood for soul food and just a regular American food.  Hop’s is open late for all those who like to eat after the different events. Hops has a variety of burgers with many different toppings. They even have turkey burgers for those who are not fans of red meat.

            When asked about his favorite restaurants in Greensboro, sophomore Tretel Ingram said he prefers Stephanie’s Restaurants.

            “The food reminds me of my family,” Tretel said. “I love the cornbread. It is the best cornbread I ever tasted.”

            The Greensboro food scene is an experience much like GHOE; therefore, while in town it is must that you try these places and more.
