Fayetteville Welcomes

Fayetteville residents have a new spot to enjoy delicious and healthy meals thanks to The Salad Box & Some, a black-owned restaurant offering a unique twist on salads and more. Owned by Robb Baker and co-owner Tonya McNeal, The Salad Box & Some isn’t just about the food; it’s about creating a welcoming space for the community. This restaurant, located at 132 Person St., goes beyond the typical salad joint. Their menu boasts fresh, made-to-order salads but also caters to diverse palates with tempting options like loaded baked potatoes, wings, shrimp and grits, and juicy sandwiches.

A Diverse Menu for Every Palate

“Our most popular items are the salmon bites and house fries,” Baker said. “After that is the loaded potatoes, and our salads are popular because we have so many to choose from.” Baker says whether people are craving comfort food classics or seeking healthy options, their diverse menu offers something to satisfy everyone.

Creating a Community Hub

“Our goal is to provide a welcoming space for everyone,” Baker said. “We’ve deliberately chosen not to have televisions in the restaurant to encourage conversation, connection, and laughter, allowing customers to reconnect and enjoy the company they’re with.” The interior, designed by Baker, features flowers, greenery, and pops of color, creating a welcoming atmosphere. “I had a vision with the decorations, with the flowers, grass, colors, and a touch of graffiti to give a creative look to the place,” Baker said.

More Than Just a Restaurant

Baker is proud to be part of Person Street’s historic legacy of Black-owned businesses. He reflects on the significance of having his restaurant in downtown Fayetteville, a dream he never thought possible. “I’m always ecstatic and shocked that I am here,” Baker said. “I have a restaurant in downtown Fayetteville, and I never thought I would be able to have anything down here.” Exciting things are in store for the future of the restaurant. They will be expanding their opening days to Sundays and introducing a selection of alcoholic beverages to their menu. “People can come out to enjoy food and also enjoy drinks like mimosas on Sundays,” Baker said. “Like I said, we have something for everyone.”

The Salad Box & Some is more than just a restaurant; it’s a place to gather, savor delicious food, and celebrate the heart of Fayetteville. “We created a space where it doesn’t matter what color you are, what race you are, or nationality; everyone is welcomed here,” Baker said. Fayetteville is known for its diverse community and has a variety of Black-owned businesses, including restaurants, retail shops, and service providers. Person Street is one of the areas in downtown Fayetteville that has been part of the city’s rejuvenation efforts, attracting a mix of businesses that cater to a wide range of needs and interests. Black-owned businesses in Fayetteville have received recognition for contributing significantly to the local economy and community.
