Greg's Hot List: Kid-Friendly Spots

CorrespondentJune 4, 2008 

No more pencils, no more books, no more cafeteria cooks. As schools across the Triangle close for the summer, busy parents are cringing at the prospect of a steady diet of pepperoni pizzas for the next two months. That's where these kid-friendly eateries come in, providing a variety of options for the grown-up palate while still fulfilling the four basic food groups for kids: cheese, ketchup, sugar and soda.
