Here is our O’Charley’s review from our family road trip in Greensboro, NC. This is a sponsored post and I was given an OCharley’s Restaurant & Bar gift card to facilitate my review. [Updated 2022 and originally posted June 2018]
Family Road Trip – O’Charley’s Review
We often take family road trips. Not only does it save money over flying, it provides a great learning experience and family bonding time. We have seen so many interesting, beautiful, inspiring things on our trips.
Sometimes though, meal times can be tough on the road. We try to use Yelp and other local review sites to find the best restaurants. There have been some really good meals and some that did not go very well. With two picky eaters in the house, it is often hard to find a restaurant that appeals to all of us.
On Tuesday we had a long day on the road. We left Philadelphia at 7 am and drove for about 8 hours to Greensboro, NC. That night, we decided to try O’Charley’s Restaurant & Bar for dinner. Before going, I looked at the OCharleys menu and it seemed to have a good variety of different foods.
O’Charley’s Restaurant in Greensboro, North Carolina
We were pretty hungry when we arrived at O’Charley’s. A day on the road, just snacking, makes you hungry.
AD: After a long day on the road we filled up on some protein and fresh bread at @ocharleys. With a big menu, everybody could get what they wanted and it worked out great. Unfortunately, we were too full for dessert. We will have to try some the next time we are there. Which dessert would you go for? I think I would go for the goo goo crunch.

What we ordered
We started with some spicy cheese wedges. Yum! And they brought fresh, hot, slightly sweet bread to the table. Also yum!
For dinner, we loaded up on protein. My husband and son got steak while my other son got salmon and I had ribs. With such a big menu we could all easily find food to order.
Unfortunately, we were too full after dinner to order dessert, but from the pictures, the desserts looked amazing. We will have to try them the next time we go to an O’Charleys.
Overall, we had a great experience at O’Charleys.
