Sweet Potatoes Restaurant (well shut my mouth!!) Winston Salem, North Carolina


Barbeque shrimp and grits.

Good food can make one travel out of their way to experience the deliciousness of the flavors in their mouth. And that is exactly what brought my family back to eat brunch at our beloved Sweet Potatoes in Winston Salem, North Carolina.

Rich in not only food, art and culture, Winston Salem is home to the award winning Sweet Potatoes (well shut my mouth!!) a soul food restaurant ran by Chefs and Hostesses ViviánJoiner and Stephanie Tyson.

So what makes this soul food restaurant different from the one in your city?

For starters, it’s a place where the chef will personally will come out to thank you for stopping in. True southern hospitality! Next, most of the dishes incorporate sweet potatoes into the food – creating a unique and magnificent flavor you must go experience for yourself.

Sweet Potatoes is open all week for lunch and dinner, but also have a full bar. I recommend going on Sunday to enjoy their brunch menu ranging from sweet potatoes pancakes, to chicken and gravy on a sweet potato biscuit and sweet potato french toast just to name a yummy few.

On top of the deliciousness the ambiance is relaxing as light jazz and beautiful artwork line the walls.

If you enjoy eating out on the patio, Sweet Potatoes recently moved to a larger location to accommodate those who enjoy the outdoor patio setting. Although North Carolina is known to be hot, the entire patio area is fully shaded with a comfortable breeze.

Check out a few dishes below and be sure to stop through Winston Salem to give Sweet Potatoes(well shut my mouth!!) it’s a restaurant – a try!!
