Stamey’s Barbecue – Greensboro, NC

Disclosure: A 25.00 gift card to Stamey's was provided in exchange for this post. The first thing I noticed when we drove through Greensboro was that there were a ton of BBQ restaurants. And by ton, I mean one on almost every single corner.

Tony & Milena’s – Hayes, VA

When you first approach Tony & Milena's 'Pizzeria', which is located in a small strip mall off the George Washington Memorial Hwy you really aren't sure what to expect. It looks like any other small town pizza joint that serves greasy pizza and over prized wings...However Tony & Milena's is  nothing like that. Actually, to be honest I'm not sure why they even call it a pizzeria. It's atmosphere and food feel and taste more like a fine dining Italian restaurant, with out the dress code and price shock. Our waiter, Max was attentive and helpful. He explained everything on the menu to us, and … [Read more...]
