In order to help people make better and faster decisions, while promoting local and must-try restaurants, all dishes at more than 20 restaurants in Winston Salem are 20% off when ordered for take-out via the Neighborz app. This special offer starts on March 22nd and valid until April 8th.

Neighborz uses pictures of food and an aggregated swiping menu to help users to see each dish before ordering: “Our goal is to make people in Winston Salem aware of the great food of our local restaurants and to encourage people to try out the convenient and fun ordering through Neighborz.", says Carl Turner, CEO and founder of Neighborz.
