Traveling from Raleigh to Blowing Rock on a Thursday.
Seeking a traditional old-school/family-run breakfast spot in Greensboro area. I'm a 27-year Raleigh resident and staunch defender of the simpler southern lifestyle that's quickly departing us, if that helps.
Have read some non-chowhound posts on Tex & Shirley's Family Restaurant (seems up my alley) and Smith's City Diner (sounds more nouveau, but interesting -- like Humble Pie in Raleigh?).
Can anyone give thumbs up/down to these or recommend others?
Thanks in advance!
