Deli / Bodega

“Over The Falls has one of the largest menus I've ever seen! What started out as a small sandwich shop, grew into a gorgeous full service restaurant with something for everyone. They have great local brews on tap, as well as some lovely wines and a full bar. Trust me - you'll be glad you went. ”

“A Wake Forest icon for 100+ years. Greasy spoon that serves “them red hotdogs.” Pool hall in the back. My grandmother Mildred wouldn't let me go here as a kid due to the gambling and “filthy lucre.””

“Hand pattied burgers from top quality meat. All burgers are cooked to order, so it takes a while and it's worth it. Listen to the owner complain about a variety of topics while you wait.”
