Restaurants

You don't need to travel to downtown Greensboro to find a great spot for a meal or a night out. Many establishments call the Rolling Roads vicinity home, including the chain restaurants located in Four Seasons Town Center and along High Point Road, which serve up everything from classic barbecue to Asian and Mexican fare.

Although the decor at Villa Del Mar could be described as campy or kitschy with its cowboy hats, posters and artificial flowers, the food keeps locals coming back for what many describe as the best Mexican cuisine in the city. Choose from street tacos such as the carnitas, lengua or al pastor. Other specialties include tortas, quesadillas and burritos, which you can spice up with the house-made diablo hot sauce. When you have a craving for home-style Southern food, give Stephanie's a try. Choose from appetizers such as Southern fried wings and barbecued meatballs or entrées such as slow-cooked ribs slathered in homemade sauce and fried catfish. If you have enough room, try the homemade banana pudding for a sweet ending to your meal.

Locals come to Darryl's Wood Fired Grill for dinner or for an ice-cold brew at the bar. Menu specialties include beef and pork ribs with fries, Cajun shrimp, Darryl's signature lasagna and braised beef tips. What makes Darryl's really stand out though is its spacious patios and its cocktail, wine and beer selection. In addition to its liquid nitrogen drinks, Darryl's has more than 26 beers on tap, with one of the most extensive lists of craft beers in the area.

For a night out on the town, buy a ticket to a show or sports event at the nearby Greensboro Coliseum Complex. Ham's Restaurant, a nearby chain, has live music or karaoke on most nights. Alternatively, take a drive downtown, home to numerous local bars such as Churchill's on Elm. This cigar bar features a great selection of single-malt scotch brands, craft bourbons and premium draft beers. As an added bonus, the bar has live jazz on Thursdays and live music every Friday and Saturday.

History

Greensboro's earliest days were spent as a paper town that was mapped out but devoid of buildings and people. Named after Nathanael Greene, a hero during the Revolutionary War, the city was originally established to be the Guilford County seat, thanks to its location in the center of the county. During the early 1800s, the population slowly grew into a frontier town powered by textile production. After the Civil War, the city expanded with new businesses and a flood of new inhabitants.

Rolling Roads residents don't need to travel too far to take part in the city's vibrant arts and culture scene. Downtown houses galleries such as The Artery Gallery and the Elsewhere living museum, in addition to other museums, including the International Civil Rights Center and Museum. Annual festivals and events, including the Carolina Blues Festival and the historic district’s Fun Fourth Festival, bring the entire community together.

Arrange a ride with Uber, or call for a taxi to take you to catch your flight at Piedmont Triad International Airport, located 13 miles away.

While some of your neighbors may take advantage of public transportation, the majority of residents drive or carpool to work.

Choose from three different routes that lead downtown, including Freeman Mill Road, West Lee Street and South Elm-Eugene Street. The neighborhood is also located near Interstates 40, 73 and 85.

This pedestrian- and cyclist-friendly metropolitan area features a dedicated trail in the park and shared roadways that connect residents with more than 45 miles of trails, making bicycling popular for recreation and as an alternative means of transportation. Thanks to plenty of on- and off-street parking, finding a parking spot rarely presents a problem for Rolling Roads residents.
