High Point Road is Corporate America Restaurant Heaven! There's EVERYTHING there! If you want a little local flavor, take Tate Street under the railroad and hang a left onto Spring Garden. Lots of nifty little neighborhood places along there... A right on SG will take you on the fringe of downtown and a few good eateries there as well.
ETA: And yes, take a toad.
