The Food is good but. . .

They have good soulfood but it takes FOREVER to get, they are ghetto, loud, and unprofessional. My advice is to order your food over the phone 45 mins before and take it home


Fun, Colorful, Friendly & Relaxed

Be sure to go to the back of the restaurant rather than the bar area, which tends to smell too much like Pine-Sol. Better Booths and more colorful atmosphere are in the back. There are drips throughout restaurant when it rains, especially in bathroom areas. Bathrooms are dark and dated but clean. In spite of all these negatives, I absolutely adore this place. I felt comfortable as a single white elderly woman and I don't hesistate bringing my friends. The staff people are friendly and the food excellent, though very, very slow. Highly recommend the grilled pork chop and don't foget the corn bread.


Best Soul Food in Town

I frequented the NItty Gritty when it first opened. There were some issues with smoking and the loud music but I decided to give them one more vist before eliminating them completely. I was very surprised. They no longer allow smoking in the restaurant and the atmosphere was very pleasing. I love to go there on Friday nite for dinner or Sunday after church. Everything on the menu is great!!!!


Delicious Food - Worth the Trip!

Because my son was in med school at Wake Forest, we'd come from Virginia to Winston Salem to visit him. He introduced us to The Nitty Gritty one day, and from then on we looked forward to dinners there on subsequent visits. From the youngest family member to the oldest, everyone describes the meals as scrumptious. The waiters and waitresses are also very cheerful & polite, with a pleasing southern hospitality style.
My son has now finished med school and moved away from NC. However, I think we'll be finding excuses to make occasional trips to Winston Salem so that we can dine at The Nitty Gritty.

Awesome Eats

My family and I have visited this restaurant twice and we have never been disappointed. Our son is a senior student at WSSU and will be graduating during spring commencement and we have planned a family lunch with close to 50 family members attending. My wife and I can not wait to see the pleasure in their eye's when the take their first bite. The sweet tea is excellent too, just give me my personal pitcher.

Grace & Peace!
