Default Where are the Nice Non-Chain Restaurants??: 40/42 or Garner?

I often have visiting friends wanting to go out to eat, and I always have to take them to Raleigh if we want somewhere nice and non-chain. I'm on a mission to find one or two local place closer to home (we live in the Hwy 50/Ten-Ten area, so I can either go 40/42 or Garner).

Local places you love to eat other than the ale houses and bars. Heck, at this point, I'd take a semi-nice lunch hangout.

Club House

From 50 (depending WHERE)
L or R - just go towards 4042
Pass Draft House on R
Pass CVS on R
.2 miles
Left on Technology Dr (dairy queen will be on your R)
2nd L into strip mall
Club House will be on your L
Thay have tables outside

NOTE: they do serve alcohol, like most places around here


The Ashley Turner Building has a new sandwich shop (it's beside Riccobene & Associates Dentist Office)


Oh, check the thread about 3 down "CDH" theres a q-pon for the Cleveland Draft House
They have tables outside, pool tables etc...

NOTE: they serve alcohol

There is a nice non chain Japanese resturant at White Oak over by the theater. They have the teppanyaki tables as well as sushi.
