“It's got to be the best place near the airport! ”
Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

We were in Greensboro to visit my brother from NH who ended up in the hospital. We got a good deal at an airport hotel. Used TripAdvisor to find Carolina's. Were not disappointed. She had excellent pork chops and I had a BLT. Great food, good service and low prices. My side of carrots was freshly cooked and not canned like a lot of places however I would ask about whether a side was canned or not. They are open 24x7.
For such a low cost place, it gets a 5. On a normal scale, it would be a 4.

“Wide Range of Delicious Food Choices in a Vintage Setting”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Four of us visited Carolina's Diner around 5:00 November 2. Although a small establishment, there were several booths available. Our server, Blaine, a Guilford College Student, took our order, was extremely friendly, and checked back often. We tried two types of cream-based soups, tuna salad sandwich, the full meatball dinner, and pork chops with mashed potatoes. Deserts were also delicious - rich but not to be ignored! The pace is slow - this is no fast food experience. It's a place to enjoy comfort food, "hang out" and be with friends. The primary menu covers the diner from 5 AM until 9 PM after which a slightly abbreviated menu is used. Food is prepared behind a large open counter; the sanitation grade was 99. The restaurant also offers a frequent diner benefit. Breakfast 24-hours a day, fresh salads and soups, fantastic burgers, and a multitude of tantalizing sandwiches. Its a great favorite with Guilford College Students, staff, and faculty.

“Fantastic diner”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

I ate here again a few days ago, and I am always pleased by their prices, variety, and the huge amount of food they give you. Ordering the Denver Omelet got me an omelet, a huge amount of hash browns, grits, and four slices of toast. It was a huge amount of food. This is definitely one of my favorite 24 hour restaurants.
