This is a great place. I actually found this place by mistake 3 years back and I have been a regular since. I love the concept that everything is local to North Carolina. The ingredients are all local and always fresh. I always have the $5.95 lunch special which gets you 2 slices with one topping and drink. I always upgrade my drink to one of the many NC brews on tap. You can get anything from the local Natty's staples to as far as Duck Rabbit seasonal brews. This is just a hidden gem that is also wife and girlfriend friendly.

Sticks and Stones is one of those laid-back gnarly little spots you hope to find on any trip out of town. And how lucky we are in Greensboro to have such a place tucked away right here. One where you can relax, enjoy interesting, out of the ordinary food that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, with the added bonus of some excellent craft beer selections. The atmosphere is great and fits the concept quite well. I have been here frequently with never a bad experience. BTW, menu items, besides being organic and locally sourced, are ALL named after songs by Ryan Adams, a North Carolina native Grammy nominee. Wonder if he's ever stopped by...?

This is where I have a Foothills Jade every PM. I love this place and the people even more. This neighborhood is very special and the beautiful urban in-fill business locale is a throwback to an earlier time. Greensboro is fortunate to have this thriving remnant of another time be so modern and cool. Sticks and Stones is a neighborhood restaurant that also is a first class neighborhood bar. The pizza is creative and excellent, with fresh local ingredients. Sandwiches are varied and very good. Mostly quiet, unassuming, and real. What more do you want? Completely family friendly and welcoming, Sticks and Stones is a credit to a staff that puts out a great product and backs it up with personality.

We were in the mood for some pizza, so this was the place to hit in the area. It is located on an intersection that has three restaurants on each corner, but the whole area is really residential. Smallish parking lot, but the strange thing was the old bicycles that were used for the railing between the parking and outside eating areas. Inside there is a nice fish tank when you walk in, and to the left you see numerous tables for dining. The bar is smallish, as only about 8-10 people can sit there. The large glass windows in the front provides loads of natural light. There is a glass refridgerator with bottles along the one wall.
There were 15 beers on tap here which all were local beers which was nice. Several beers from Foothills, Highland, and Natty Green's, with some single beers from Lonerider, Green Man, and Mother Earth. The few pints I had were fresh and of a good quality.
The pizzas we had were all very good. They all had unique strange names, but the ingredients were of good quality. Service was solid and friendly.
Overall a very enjoyable experience and we left satisfied. We will be back next time we are in town.

I have always loved the setup in here. It really has a look all its own. The fence is made of old 10-speed bikes?!?
ALL NC Taps. Some standard cans. Tap list had 2 Mother Earths, 2 Foothills, 4 Nattys, and the much loved Skull Coast Dead Mans Porter.
Got the fries to start off with, fair size, good seasoning. Then split a small pizza with a very odd name, something about kissing later? Anyway, very good but get a large if you have 2 or more people or the 2 of you are pretty hungry.
A great stop for the beer, then head over to Bestway to get something to bring home!!

Excellent place for brews and killer pizzas. Great, knowledgeable, friendly bar staff. Be sure to tell them that you want a room temperature pint glass or you may end up with a very frosty one.
The 3rd time was the charm for me. Once I understood how things work it was a picture perfect experience. It didn't hurt any that my 3rd trip there was a bottle share with a newer group known as the NC Triad Beer Meetups. One hell of a great time and everyone that works there was very friendly, outgoing, and knowledgeable. Did I mention that they make Killer Pizzas? They have about a dozen taps that are constantly rotating with an excellent selection Abd that have numerous bottles as well. I'll be back time and time again. Cheers from RedNeckBeerz

Been here more than a few times:) tap selection has expanded to include more then just NC beers, can selection is also pretty good! Great pizza, salads and sandwiches all made from local/organic ingredients. This is my family's type of place! good REAL food, good vibes and good people. Kid friendly with a great fish tank.

A relatively small place, that is nicely decorated with trees and vines. It has a really cool atmosphere, very laid back. The patrons seem to be college age and professional types. The pizza is very good, gourmet style. The toppings are very creative ranging from pine nuts to pepperoni. The crust is thin and crispy.
The beers on draft are all North Carolina microbrews and they are awesome. I can't remember all of them but I know they have Natty Green's: Buckshot Amber, Downtown Brown; Foothills: Hoppyum IPA, Torch Pilsner; Highland St. Therese's Pale Ale, Oatmeal Porter; Blowing Rock Ale; Duck Rabbit Milk Stout. They also have a nice can selection ranging from PBR tallboys to Brooklyn beers. All of the cans are recycled and the money is given to charity, which is really cool. I love this pizza place and if I lived closer to Greensboro I would frequent it much more often. I highly recommend this place to any pizza or craft beer lover.

A relatively small building on the corner in a fairly neighborhoody section of Greensboro. Right across the street from the Filling Station. It has a simple but eclectic atmosphere, pretty open with tasteful decor and a low lighting look. You can eat at tables or a very nice old bar. Staff was very helpful on the beers and service was reasonably quick. Some good taste in music, again eclectic. James Brown, The Dead, ska etc., very nice. One big screen TV that's visible from most seats but they were doing political shows instead of sports. Of course, you can't hear what they're saying so why not just give in to a good old Red Sox game? I didn't ask. They had 12 taps flowing which featured Highlands new Cattail Peak Wheat, St. Teresa's Pale Ale and Gaelic Ale and Oatmeal Porter; Natty Greene's Guilford Golden, Southern Pale, Buckshot Amber, Old Town Brown, Wildflower Wit; Duck Rabbit Milk Stout: and Foothills Torch Pilsner, Hoppyum IPA and Hurricane Hefeweizen. It was pretty quiet here on a Wednesday night but they apparently pack them in on weekends. The feature food here is pizza, gourmet type pizza. You can get individual pizzas with all sorts of funky adders for about $11 and larger pies for more. Mine was plenty good, nothing outrageous but an enjoyable munch. Definitely a fulfilling and enjoyable place. $3.50 per pint is hard to beat for great local brews, too! I enjoyed my visit and will definitely head back the next time I am in town. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. This is my favorite drinking spot in Greensboro from my limited experience. Of course the selection is purely locals, no imports or even macros let alone micros from outside the area, but I can't fault that too much. Being a traveller my main interest is the local micro brews so I was very content. They did offer canned beer from a cooler for having with your meal or for take out, this was mostly macros, sad to say.

Great addition to 'the corner' of Walker and Elam. Not to mention, the beer selection is excellent, compared with most G'boro places.
Very organic atmosphere, seems like a larger version of an NYC bistro. Neil has done a good job, although I really loved Wild Mag. This is more family friendly, non-smoking, not near as loud, and much brighter.
Quality is great, local ingredients, local (N.C.) brews, and all other beers are in cans. I've only had pizzas, but all of them have been fantastic and unique.
They usually have too few servers/bartenders on, but I know many of them, they are solid folks and will take good care of you.
Beer selection is great - all 12 taps are N.C. with 4 for Nattys, 3-4 for Foothills, 2-3 for Highland, 2 for Duck Rabbit. Can vary. Canned beers range from craft (Oskar Blues) to import (Tetleys, Guinness, Youngs Double Chocolate) to macro (PBR, High Life, Tecate, etc.).
Beer is priced right, $3.50 per draft. Pizza is somewhat expensive, compared to other local spots, but the quality is much better, from what I can gather. Highly recommended. Worth going out of your way for food and beer. They were the first to get Highland's spring seasonal, with more to come.
