It's been awhile since I have managed to time my trips through Statesville to match those of 1849. Hours have changed a bit since I was through before and they are now closed Sundays AND Mondays as well as only open after 4:30 pm until.....???...depends on business.....later anyway.
But the reward of getting there was well worth the wait.
The OLDE 1849 BACON CHEESEBURGER PIE is exactly that....LOADED with all the goodies....but let it cool a bit! It looked so good I couldn't wait to dig in and burned the roof of my mouth!
The wings come Memphis (sweet & smokey), traditional (hot & spicy) and dry rub. I had the Memphis.....a good size of wing meat but just a little too much "smoke" flavour for my taste.
TERRIFIC assortment of local American craft beers from dark to light. I had a lovely DOGFISH IPA from Delaware which just topped the meal off so well.
An understandably popular spot for locals and the local hotels right near the I-40 it fills up really quickly but it is so worth the wait.
