<<As a goal, let's try to keep this list to restaurants that have more than a veggie burger and salads. Technically, yes, those menu items are vegetarian friendly, but there is a void in the Triangle for a TRUE list of restaurants with more than a couple of vegetarian items on their menu. It was created for the non-vegetarians out there who have vegetarian friends>>
As usual, it's probably best to check websites for updates to the menu, but this will give you a good start. It also probably goes without saying that most Mexican, Chinese, Indian and Pizza places have vegetarian options.
