Fresh made and good

In there for lunch to go. Order the pastrami Reuben and macaroni salad. Both were very good. The sandwich was piled high with very lean pastrami, coleslaw, and thousand island dressing. It was very good. The mac salad was tasty, different from what I would make at home. It dd have bell peppers... read more

Came here for a local friend to pick up lunch for a small group, and was very impressed by the hearty sandwiches and fresh salads. Carving Board obviously does a brisk business. The only drawback was the wait, and the sandwich making process did not appear to be terribly efficient. However, the end product was worth it. Good value too.

I don't come here often, but I have been coming here since they started with the one location on the corner of the building. Now they have the entire front of the building and it still gets crowded at lunch time. The food is always delicious, the selection is excellent and imaginative, the combination of soup and sandwich or soup... More

Whenever we visit Winston-Salem, NC we make a point of eating at this great place. It's an "order in line" place, but the line moves really fast and the staff is friendly and they aim to please. The food is fresh and the choices are many. You can order what you see listed and deliciously displayed in the refrigerated case;... More

Lunch here is always excellent! You can tell by the line out the door at lunchtime. I usually go with the 3 salad plate because I cant choose just one! Spicy Noodles, Chili Slaw and Chicken Salad are favorites of mine :)

This is a cafeteria-style restaurant with excellent sandwiches and salads for lunches and serving dinners as well. We had lunch there with friends and the place was busy. I enjoyed an excellent pastrami & swiss melt while my wife had a chef salad, both generously sized. Definitely a cut above what I usually think of for this style of eatery.... More

There's something about a nice cold pasta or potato salad in the summer, and there are lots of cool offerings at the Carving Board. Given the freedom of choice to pick mains and sides, there seems to be an endless way to design a custom lunch with fresh salads and sandwiches. It seems a little pricey but the taste and... More

I have been to the Carving Board many times and have never had a bad meal. There are a variety of salads and sandwiches to choose from. You order deli style and cue up in line. The able bodied team behind the counter gets the orders out quickly, even when the place is slammed, which is almost every lunch time.... More

I have eaten here about 2.5 million times. So it's gotta be good. There are MANY restaurants in Winston that I have been to once or twice and never again. However, I have been known to plan an entire afternoon around a visit to the Carving Board. They have great sandwiches but my go to is the "three salad plate".... More
