Our last trip to Winston included lunch at Sweet Potatoes. This place is highly regarded for a reason. The staff is courteous and the food is amazing! I'd suggest ordering whatever the day's special is. The day I went it was a sweet potato biscuit with smoked sausage covered with sausage gravy. Very good... If you are a fan of... More

The service is welcoming as well as food. What I like most it's a great place for lunch and dinner and I can walk afterwards.

Stopped in for lunch on a Sunday, they were doing brunch (it was 2:00 PM!?!), not my favorite, but I had an enjoyable time all the same. Place was packed and I was solo, so they sat me at the bar, which I usually don't enjoy, but I had an enjoyable meal all the same. Why? The food's killer. Started... More

Once again received the same superior service and awesome food. The staff goes out of their way to make sure you are taken care of. Had the oyster salad this visit. Fred thanks for making me and my friend feel so special.

Highly, highly, highly recommend Sweet Potatoes for a mind-blowing journey into authentic Southern cuisine. I went with a few friends for lunch and would love to try their dinner menu. Fresh fried pork rinds were amazing. Their grits were the best I have ever had (don't tell my mom), and the dessert was pure homemade goodness. If you are in... More

Good food with great service. We have eaten here several times. The space is a bit small so family groups or large parties are not ideal. Prices are reasonably but slightly above average for the area. The bar is small and limited somewhat but this is a great dinner or lunch spot.

We were seated and waited for almost ten minutes before we left. One of the owners was on the cell phone talking and the service staff ignored us.

Good southern food. 2 areas in need of improvement - better lighting and allowing substitutions of sides on the fried catfish meal.

We are arrived on a Friday evening at about 7 PM, the wait for a table for two was about 20 minutes but there was no wait for the community table. We chose the community table, why not? It did not disappoint, our table mates were pleasant and one even offered dinner suggestions. Service was spot-on from the moment we... More

Went to Sweet Potatoes on the recommendation of a co-worker and I was not disappointed. The food tasted great, the servers were very efficient, and the ambiance was relaxing. I had the Fried Green Tomato sandwich with bacon, lettuce, and sweet potato aïoli (now this is the way to fix a BLT) -- and a side of sweet potato fries.... More
