Carving Board is a gourmet eatery that has a daily offering of staple items plus lots of specials. There can be quite a line at popular times of the day, but it's worth it. You pick what and how much of each item you'd like, and they plate it for you. Tons of salad options--chicken and tuna salads, at least... More

I love the Carving Board because everything is so fresh. There's SO much to choose from as well. I can never make up my mind. They have tons of salad options, but also serve sandwiches and nice entrees. You can't walk out of there spending less than $10, but it's very good.

The best place in town for a casual meal, lunch or dinner. Also, a perfect choice for a fresh and healthy meal to go. They offer a wonderful selection of their best sellers plus daily specials. Our favorites: the tomato basil soup, the orange-ginger marinated grilled shrimp, the oriental chicken salad and the marinated grilled chicken.

I haven't found any authentic New York style delis in North Carolina, but the Carving Board is a pretty good approximation. We've dined here many times over the last decade, usually while shopping at Thruway Shopping Center, and we've always enjoyed the food. If you arrive between 11:30 AM and 1:30 PM you should expect a lengthy wait in the... More

This place is awesome. I always get a wide variety of small portions when I eat there and it is ALWAYS well prepared and delicious. Wish there were a Carving Board in Wilmington as well as Winston-Salem (I split my time between Wilmington and Winston) since I miss eating at the Carving Board when I am at my home on... More

We had a short stop here for lunch on our coach tour and were worried by the long line out the door! It moved quickly however, as there were so many people serving behind the counter. Standing waiting also gave us a chance to read the VAST menus written over the walls inside. It seemed as though you could have... More
