Winston-Salem has plenty of hidden gems. We asked Twin City residents on Instagram, Reddit, and in our newsletter what’s underrated in our cities — here’s what you had to say:

“I find that Grillville located at 902 E. Sprague St. has the best burgers in town. They have hand pattied burgers. You can get a Cheeseburger with fries and a drink for under $10. They also have an International Breakfast that will knock your socks off.” — Bobby H.

Another great food option is Delicious by Shereen, a group of mainly refugee/immigrant women who prepare amazing Middle Eastern food. Customers preorder from each week’s menu and pick up their meals at Buie’s on Monday afternoons.” — Stephanie L.

“I think the people are underrated in Winston Salem. Since we moved here in 2022, this city has shown kindness, warmth and generosity. I am so proud to have become part of this community. One part of our business plan includes “give back” which means working in our community for our community.” —@misnermedia

“Our local restaurants. I’ve had business colleagues from Raleigh area (sorry, RALtoday, it’s true) say we have better restaurants here.” — @bluebirds_threads

“Theater scene. There are so many good shows every week in Winston.” — @skinkforguv

“Golfing. Now that I live away from Winston I realize how nice and inexpensive the public courses are. I miss @reynoldsparkgc and Winston lake.” @millerparkmoss

“Moved here from Sydney, Australia. Absolutely gorgeous city. I think the people here are incredible.” yaboidomby

“The Lilly pond on Reynolda Road [is] magical... at the corner of Bethabara Park Blvd. If you come on [the] weekend you can park in the lot at the preschool and walk down through the gazebo. There is a long pier that takes you out above the water. In June/July there are acres of amazing pink water lilies” 58LS

“The skyline at night!” faielyne

Do we need another reason to brag about our city?
