Now Open!

  Comments Off

It’s been a long winter without ‘cue, we know, but we have reopened for the season so the long wait is over.  Come out and enjoy the great weather and welcome the season with us.  We will be open Tuesday – Saturday 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.  All your favorites are back on the menu with the exception of fish tacos.  They are a summer-only treat.

No doubt you’ll notice we are doing some enhancements to the property.  Please excuse our mess.  It’s a temporary inconvenience but will be a permanent improvement.  We are renovating the outdoor space so it will be an even better backdrop for catered events.  Be sure to check with Kristin Huntley, our catering coordinator at 702-1301, to plan your next event.

You’ll see other changes this year too.  We have always tried to use local produce as much as possible but this year we’ll do a better job of letting you know what’s locally grown.  As the growing season approaches, watch for special signage at the window to let you know what’s local each week.

As always, we invite you to help us “sell the sizzle”.  If you enjoy your experience, please share it with others via Yelp!, Urbanspoon or TripAdvisor.  You can also check-in on Facebook and follow our tweets on Twitter.

Hope you have a great spring.  Hope to see you soon!

Nice Mention in July Issue of Our State Magazine

Our State North Carolina Magazine, July 2010 issue - 100 Food You Must Eat
The July issue of Our State Magazine, has a great article on 100 places to eat in North Carolina’s 100 counties. Unfortunately, we didn’t make the list this year but our neighbor, Hot Dog World in Hendersonville, has the honor of being the featured spot for Henderson County. Nice choice!

We didn’t go away empty handed, however. Asheville photographer, Matt Rose, was asked where his favorite place to eat in NC was and why. This was Matt’s comment:

“I like indigenous food. Barbecue is as indigenous as it gets here in North Carolina. My favorite barbecue comes from a restaurant about 20 minutes south of Asheville in the small town of Flat Rock. Behind a row of brightly painted shops is Hubba Hubba Smokehouse. Owner and Pitmaster, Starr Teel, creates the greatest BBQ in a giant, custom-built, wood-fired smoking and roasting chamber.”

Thanks, Matt!

The July issue of Our State is on newsstands now. Pick up a copy for great places to visit or submit your own list of great places to eat in NC.

Eat more pork…improve your love life?

You don’t really need an excuse to eat our BBQ but if you need help convincing your loved one why you should visit more than once a week, maybe the Argentine President’s argument will help!

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – Argentina’s president thinks eating pig meat is really sexy. Many people in this beef-loving nation reacted with surprise recently when Argentine President, Cristina Fernandez, promoted pork in a speech during which she not only said pork is better than Viagra, but suggested she’s personally proven it.

“I didn’t know that eating pork improved sexual activity,” Fernandez said in a meeting with representatives of the swine industry late Wednesday. “It is much more gratifying to eat some grilled pork than to take Viagra.”

She even joked that “it was all good” after she enjoyed some pork with her husband, former President Nestor Kirchner.

“I think they might be right,” Fernandez said to a laughing audience.

The head of the association of pork producers, Juan Luis Uccelli, supported Fernandez’s speech by saying that Denmark and Japan have a much more “harmonious” sexual life then the Argentines because they eat a lot of pig meat.

“In Osaka, Japan, there is a village in which the people who reached 105 years old and ate a lot of pork had a lot of sexual activity,” he was quoted as saying.

Others were skeptical.  We’ll let you decide.
