I'll Take this Village

Yesterday at lunchtime, I was in the Cameron Village area of Raleigh, so I decided to grab some grub at Village Deli & Grill. If you’ve never visited this fast-casual eatery, you should. They have the best house-made chicken salad in The Triangle other than the legendary stuff at Tookie’s Texaco on Six Forks Road.

Village Deli is a bustling place every time I’ve ever been, and for good reason. Where else can you get an all-natural bison burger, grilled wild-caught salmon or Cajun shrimp wrap and not have to leave a tip?

For my money, though, the creamy chicken salad on wheat with a side of organic sweet potato fries is as good as it gets. If you’re in the mood for a salad, consider a side garden variety with a large scoop of chicken salad on top. Be sure to try the Vidalia onion dressing.

The guy sitting next to me was enjoying a Carolina-style BBQ sandwich that looked totally legit. His meal was accompanied with Yukon-gold French fries. Reason enough for another visit really soon!

Oh yeah, save room for dessert. A house-made chocolate chip cookie will only set you back 75 cents.

Village Deli & Grill ( is open seven days a week and has additional locations in Morrisville and Wake Forest.
