Meh-duh's Down-Home Family-Cookin - The Meadow Village Restaurant  

The Meadow Village Restaurant is the main attraction in a little crossroads town called Meadow, NC. Locals call it Meh-duh. The restaurant seems to be popular with both locals and people passing by. It's not visible from the interstate, (Off I-40 at Exit 334) and it doesn't look like much from the outside, but the country, comfort food is great, and the waitresses are friendly and welcoming; and they all call you "Honey"!

When country cooking is what you're craving, then this family-owned restaurant is where you want to be. The Meadow is famous for buffet-style, all-you-can-eat lunch and dinners that taste like your grandma's cooking. Chicken pastry/pot pies, Country style steak, and Fried chicken are fresh and delicious. Thursday's through Saturday nights they serve a Seafood Buffet with shrimp, fried or boiled, oysters, clam strips, and deviled crab that will continue to pour out from the kitchen fresh and hot provided by local seafood sources.

The buffet includes both salad bar and dessert bar. The dessert bar has a mouth watering assortment of Homemade desserts, like their famous Chocolate Pie with mile-high meringue, Banana Pudding, Strawberry Cake, Chocolate Cake, Coconut Cake and so many more. The pies and cakes continue to come out to the buffet tables replenishing the line. Desserts are all homemade from scratch and baked daily with many pies coming to the buffet straight from the ovens.

A little history: The Raynor family opened the Village Restaurant in Newton Grove, NC in 1980. After a few successful years in Newton Grove, they moved the restaurant to Meadow, NC. The small family restaurant soon began growing and hasn't stopped. Many folks drive to Meadow from Raleigh just for its dessert buffet.

Come visit the Meadow and enjoy Southern cooking with a down home, family atmosphere.

Meadow Village Restaurant -7400 NC Highway 50 South, Benson, NC. 35 minutes from Raleigh, a 4 minute detour. From I-40 take Exit 334. Ph:(919) 894-5430.

Remembering Maud Gatewood: A Selection of Her Paintings
Sept. 24 - Nov. 8

Maud Gatewood (1934-2004) was a powerful force in the North Carolina art community. As a painter, teacher, activist and staunch individualist, she delighted viewers, inspired students, supported organizations, and served as a role model for how to participate in a world of images and ideas. Maud was also a good friend of the Weatherspoon Art Museum and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG). She left trust funds for a guest artist lecture series and bequeathed a portion of her estate and 18 works of art by her and other American artists to the museum. She also made a generous gift to the University toward the new art building on campus, which is named in her honor.

The Exhibition The Original Maud Gatewood: The Life & Legacy of Maud Gatewoode opening lecture, by Will South, Chief Curator of Columbia Museum of Art will be held on Thursday, Sept. 24 at 4:00pm at Weatherspoon Art Museum Auditorium. An Opening Reception begins at 5:30 until 7:00pm at Gatewood Gallery Lobby.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
