We were looking for somewhere to eat while in the area. Options range from salads, to sandwiches, burger and pizza. I had the fish tacos which were really good. Hubby got a taco salad with steak which he enjoyed. Lots of options on the kids menu too.

I always make it a point to eat at Big Shotz every time I am in Statesville. The wait staff is always friendly, and always provides service with a smile. The regulars are a friendly bunch, and treat me like I'm an old friend, which makes it a very comfortable, enjoyable experience. One of the best parts of the visit... More

My business associate and I got to the hotel after a training meeting. It was late but wanted to get something to eat. The bar tender was not in a good mood when we ordered. While the bar food was OK the negative vibe from the bar tender made the whole experience terrible. I would not go back!

We were going hiking nearby and wanted to eat Carolina barbecue but every place was closed on Sunday. We finally found Big Shotz and really enjoyed the food. My wife had a the blue cheese burger and I had the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, both much better than you might think. In addition the homemade chips were great as well. The... More

We stopped in Statesville, NC for the night to get some rest after a long day driving, then we found Big Shotz Tavern. To keep this a short post, this place has awesome appetizers, sandwiches, and local craft beers. The shrimp poppers are amazing (and I dont like shrimp, haha) and the fried pickles are great. The steak salad was... More

Good food, OK selection of beer. Could've been a little better. Good service. Nice quiet place to eat dinner, have a beer and watch the game.

Four of us thought we'd stop in for some bar food after exploring Statesville. Wow - so glad we did! I had the Black & Bleu Burger that was fabulous; hubby had the Shotz Burger which he loved; in-laws had the Stromboli and Turkey Club plus Buffalo Chicken soup- all got rave reviews. Even the seasoned French fries were done... More
