Daphne and I have been long plotting when we could make our way to Clemmons to try out Brothers Restaurant, and we were not disappointed. In fact we had one of our best lunches EVER! Brothers was started by John and Buddy Milner, and they have created a delicious and delightfully easy place to bring friends and family for lunch or dinner.
We walked in around 11:30 when they were opening up for lunch and there were already people inside. By the time we left, the restaurant was packed.
Daphne had the Pizza of the Day. (The Basil Pecan Pesto with roasted tomatoes, olives, and parm)
She loved it, and said it was one of the best lunches she has had in awhile.
I had the smoked chicken and BBQ sauce pizza. I frequently order BBQ chicken pizzas, and I can tell you there is nothing else like this in the county. The flavor of the chicken and the pickled red onion set this pizza apart from any other that I have ever had.

Daphne and I both loved the ambiance. Daphne said, ” I loved the old shutters on the walls for decoration. It had a very warm comfortable feel in the restaurant.”
Here is a little secret about Daphne and I when it comes to “Dining with Daphne” lunches. We usually don’t try each other’s dishes. However, on Friday we had to share because they both looked so good. When I asked Daphne what her favorite part was about Brothers, her answer made me giggle. “The fact that I tried your pizza as well as mine and loved both of them. It makes me want to go back and try something different. I want to try one of the specialty tacos next time.” I couldn’t agree more, and wished we had the stomachs for five dishes. There were so many tempting items to try from burgers, to small plates, salads, and tacos we could have been there all day.
So our advice is to get to Brothers if you haven’t been there yet. The food was amazing, the décor was casual and fun, and best of all we want to go back and keep trying all the different items on the menu!
