We love Sweet Potatoes. The best food always. Had the Fried Green Tomatoes/Fried Okra appetizer and the Mac & Cheese. Best fried okra ever!!! Mac & cheese had country ham in it and was to die for. Can't wait for our next visit.

This was me and my families first time in Winston Salem. We decided to stay in Winston that Saturday, before we head to Greensboro the following day. Our bar tender at our hotel had recommended this spot for dinner. This restaurant is located down town and they were having a jazz concert outside. As you can imagine, everyone wanted to... More

We were there for lunch on a Saturday. You should know that this is a VERY popular place, and for good reason. The food was excellent. The only negative was that it was pretty noisy, but not much you can do about that - not their fault. I'm a vegetarian and there were really only two things on the menu... More

Had lunch with my wife at Sweet Potatoes. It was busy at 11:45, so we sat at the bar. Service was decent, although we had empty tea glasses several times. I got the hot brown open faced sandwich and my wife got a daily special: a fried porkchop sandwich with tomato jam and peanut butter! Yes, peanut Butter! It was... More

We met some friends here on a Saturday evening before seeing a show at School of the Arts. It's my understanding that they don't take reservations, so we got there a little before they opened the doors (at 5:00 pm). There was already a small group waiting, so plan on going early. I recommend as soon as it opens, because... More

Driving back from a visit to Mt. Airy, NC and stopped at Sweet Potatoes for a late lunch on Sunday. We had Stephanie's Other Salad & Chicken and Sausage Gravy and Biscuit. Food was delicious (especially the salad) with a lot of attention to detail. Fun atmosphere & very quaint. They even had a special on their mimosas!

My daughter, her husband and son and I went to Brunch here on Mother's Day. Everything you order seems to be made just for you. That is because the waiter's listen to individual small requests. It felt like I had been to an upscale restaurant- and yet I was made to feel comfortable. We had to wait a little while,... More
