5 Ways Horsefeathers Roadhouse is the LKN’s Top Eatery!

hfr 3Maybe we are a bit opinionated, but here at Horsefeathers Roadhouse in Sherrills Ford, Donna and the staff believe that enjoyment is the number one priority in life across the Lake Norman region of North Carolina. Since 1996, Horsefeathers (HFR) has been proud to provide a relaxing hangout for our many neighbors, locals and friends as they travel the Carolina highways and byways.

“We pledge to serve as a full-service dining and fun travel destination where folks can take their time to enjoy the food, drinks, games, and camaraderie of the many “regulars” who call Horsefeathers their second home.”

Here are five ways Horsefeathers Roadhouse in Lake Norman serves as “one big happy travel destination”:

  • Love of country:  The city of Sherrills Ford is located in an historic part of the Carolinas with deep roots in its pride of our regional heritage. There are at least ten historic attractions within easy driving distance of the Roadhouse. We welcome all travelers heading to the mountains, the lake, or the beaches as they soak in the Piedmont and take in the sites. Our sizzlin’ BBQ and other menu items, along with our advanced beer delivery system with 24 taps will be waitin’ on ya!
  • Honor of military and veterans: Horsefeathers Roadhouse is very proud to honor those individuals who have or are serving to keep our country free. We always keep our flags flying high and our doors open wide every day of the year! All our military friends are encouraged to come to HFR to meet up with family and friends at our Lake Norman hangout any time.
  • Our unique location: HFR is close to highways, cities, towns, Lake Norman, and numerous southern attractions. Even better than that, we are off the beaten path just far enough to provide a breathing space for travelers. Only a couple of minutes off NC 150 and just nine miles west of Sam’s Club in Mooresville, our 2100 sq. ft. deck on the lower level overlooks a two acre park on a beautiful Lake Norman cove.  
  • Outstanding service: Our facility operates 365 days a year with a large upper level outdoor patio, a 24 tap bar room, and a 2,000 sq. ft. dance floor that also serves as a full dining room when live music is not performing on stage. The lower interior level consists of a 2100 sq. ft. game room with ample seating, a 13 seat “quiet bar”, and a high production kitchen that operates every single day of the year.
  • Our sizzlin’ smokin’ BBQ: The best wings in the LKN are made to order for you as you wait for the main courses. If you haven’t tried our smokin’ menu, now’s the time to eat, drink and be merry with family and friends here at Horsefeathers Roadhouse Lake Norman.

Don’t bother to knock – just walk right in and make yourself at home. The Horsefeathers Girls are always at your beck and call to attend to every need and ensure that every single guest has a great time. They are definitely southern girls who like to keep the party going!

See you soon for the best food in the south!

Horsefeathers Roadhouse Celebrates as the Best Waterin’ Hole in Lake Norman

Mooresville, NC

Horsefeathers Property History: In 1952, the property started as a small 100 sq. ft. wooden fuel service shack with a single gas pump. The developer was a local farmer, Gabe Little. The current building was built in 1955 as a grocery store and fuel stop. Its footprint was (and is) 8,000 square feet evenly divided on two levels. In later years, the lower level became a bar and game room called “Jack’s”, operated by Jack Todd, wife, and family.

Frequent visitors were motorcycle riders and local farmers joining together to enjoy this countryside watering hole. Later, after Lake Norman was established in the early 1960’s, the ownership changed hands and Paul and Peggy Helms took over renaming the business as “Paul’s Downstairs”. It5 soon became well known in Sherrills Ford, North Carolina as a place to eat hamburgers, hot dogs, shoot pool, drink beer, and enjoy original country music.

In 1994, Sherry and Tim Anderton bought the building, adjoining 2 acres of property, with 245 ft. of water frontage surrounding a cove on Lake Norman. The Andertons totally gutted the building, redesigned and rebuilt the interior format, and added a 2100 sq. ft. deck on the lower lever overlooking the two acre park and the Lake Norman cove.

Today the restaurant operates 365 days a year with a large upper level outdoor patio, a 24 tap bar room, and 2,000 square foot dance floor that serves as a dining room when live music is not performing on stage. Today the lower interior level consists of a 2100 square foot game room with seating, a 13 seat “quiet bar”, and a high production kitchen that operates every day of the year. The primary fare is a long historic line of Southern barbeque products that are mainly prepared in a separate, wood fired smokehouse that is known by many as the largest stand-alone BBQ smokehouse on Lake Norman and Western North Carolina. The high production cooker can produce as many an 18 pork shoulders on a single nine hour turn. The property features ample parking provided by lots on both the upper and lower levels of the property.

Horsefeathers as a Business Entity: It took the Andertons two years to rebuild the facility and do the necessary earthwork to make the property accommodating for a 220 seat restaurant and bar with plentiful parking. In 1996, the remodeled property opened up under the current name of Horsefeathers Roadhouse. Over the past 19 years various upgrades and additions to the facility have brought it to its present day operations. The environment is dramatically non-corporate, “off the wall”, rustic, and welcoming in the style of country western. The exterior of the building has trompe l’oeil facings depicting the features of an old western town, complete with drug store, Western Union service, general store, and jail. There are even a few horse hitching posts out front. The customer demographic is highly mixed with locals, professionals, construction workers, farmers, lake residents, campground vacationers, families, bikers, and many casual visitors who come from many miles around to enjoy the vast array of Southern BBQ products. The environment is as a relaxed hang out where everyone can take their time and enjoy the food, the drinks, the games, and the camaraderie of the many “regulars” who call Horsefeathers Roadhouse their second home.

Unique Features: Along with our Southern BBQ products, Horsefeathers Roadhouse is known for the following unique attributes:

  • Daily specials featuring down home country entrees that are simply not found elsewhere in the Lake Norman market.
  • Horsefeathers famous “Kickback Club” that offers regular discounts and incentives to over 3,000 members.
  • A unique “made out of panel wooden doors” bar that features all sorts of imbedded memorabilia contributed by our clientele.
  • Fun lovin’ live entertainment on a regular basis featuring country western and Southern rock every weekend. Otherwise, there is always a strong “music” vibe at Horsefeathers
  • An extremely active website that features a regular blog update along with our monthly calendar of events, which is updated and always available at the restaurant and on the website.
  • Horsefeathers is proud of our cleanliness as a key operating feature.
  • Horsefeathers is proud of its 4.5 star rating on YELP as well as its good reviews from Open Table.
  • A broad selection of unique and “fun lovin” tee shirts and hoodies that remind the owner of the good times had at Horsefeathers.
  • Upon arrival at Roadhouse, a newcomer will see the name HORSEFEATHERS on the tin roof in 11’ tall letters; no one misses our historic buildings.
  • Horsefeathers is dedicated to our Veterans and to our Armed Forces military personnel. Many veterans in the region and beyond visit each day with us. Horsefeathers Roadhouse flies four American flags across the rooftop in honor of each of the four branches of the American Armed Services.
  • Horsefeathers operates as the oldest “watering hole” (bar) on Lake Norman as it has survived the years to do improve and grow.
  • Most notably, the Horsefeathers wait staff is always focused on the best service possible to attend to the needs and wants of our guests; ever present smiles help ensure a great time.

About Horsefeathers Roadhouse (HFR): Founded in 1996 by the Anderton Family, it has a rich history going back to the days of the Korean War. HFR is both a restaurant and a classic southern watering hole catering to locals, motorcycle and classic car enthusiasts, professionals, visitors to the Lake Norman Area, and our U.S. Military Veterans and active military personnel. Horsefeathers Roadhouse is well known in the Lake Norman Region and the Piedmont for its culinary excellence and rustic ambiance which translates southern hospitality to a good time 365 days a year.  

The Lake Norman Legend of the Horse Feather and the Infamous Hawg Wing

Feather stuart miles grey editedsamandale horseMany eons ago, the most revered object in the entire realm, was a “Horse Feather” from the winged beast of Pegasus. The feather, it was said, had mysterious powers, much like Pegasus itself, and could bestow upon its holder riches and fortunes beyond comprehension.

The Governor of Dry Pond, as the area of Carolina was known back then, issued a proclamation, making the horse feather a symbol of peace, harmony, and happiness. The Catawba town of Dry Pond and the surrounding areas celebrated the proclamation by feasting on a particular “rib” from a barbequed pig as they all consumed large vats of ale. The event was said to have gone on for seven days and seven nights. It was on the seventh night at the seventh hour that the most curious situation took place. A young Catawba Indian boy entered the BBQ pit area and upon his head was a headband with a single feather in it. It was a beautiful horse feather. The Indian boy removed the feather and presented it to the governor with the words: “To benefit mankind, we present this horse feather”. The governor thanked the lad and assured him that the feather was in good hands. The boy left as he had come.

The governor thought long and hard. He finally decided to ask the feather for a treat that every man, woman, and child, Indian or settler, could agree was the tastiest, most mouthwatering, delicious morsel of meat in the Catawba land. At that moment, a flash of lightning startled the governor. He looked out and gazed upon, what was once an empty parcel of land; only to see a tin roof building where once only forest stood. He could smell the unbelievably zingy BBQ aroma drifting out from the simple structure. He watched as the town folks and Indians alike approached and cautiously entered the structure. It was then that he heard the joyous voices becoming louder and louder. It sounded like a chorus of angels. They were singing the praises of that original rib from the ancient town of Dry Pond. Now and forever it will now be known as the Hawg Wing; the mystical, magical creation that defies all definition and imagination. The mighty Hawg Wing stands for peace, harmony, and happiness as it “wallers” in bounteous barbecue sauce.

So, dear patron, now that thou know the Legend of the Horse Feather and the Hawg Wing, thou are hereby anointed to spread the word to all thy brethren, and invite them to feast with thou on this most uncommon treat. Thou must direct them, with all thy will and might, to that particular tin roof structure near the grand lake, adjacent to where the mighty forest lay fallow. We fare thee well as thou send these legends, now and forever, throughout the Catawba land. And so it was written for all the decades.

Here in 2015, the legend grows at Horsefeathers Roadhouse in Historic Sherrills Ford, North Carolina.

The March 21st Spring Jam at Horsefeathers Roadhouse Rocks the Lake!

HFR 3-21 Party editedLet’s get down with the first day of spring and have a Saturday party that starts at 12:30 p.m. and lasts through the night! Consider Horsefeathers Roadhouse in Sherrills Ford, Lake Norman as your fun-house headquarters for Spring! This upcoming weekend, Saturday March 21st will ROCK Lake Norman!

We have the annual bash of the year in the LKN coming up Saturday with our biggest get-together in the New Year! HFR’s Spring Jam is on tap for Saturday March 21 and we would love to have you join our General Manager Donna and the entire team in saying “bye-bye” to winter with some awesome jammin’ to live bands and other goings-on.

Y’all are invited to get your groove on because…

Spring is just a shorter word for CELEBRATION!

We have entertainment not to be missed! North Carolina’s favorites Gringo Outlaw and Nunya Business will be in the house during Spring Jam with live music for dancin’, clappin’, and toe-tappin’ pleasure! And we have the ever popular D.J. Mark spinning the good stuff for everyone present.

Three ways Horsefeathers puts the Spring Jam weekend together just right for everyone in LKN country:

  • Temperatures in the mid-60’s to 70’s: We talked to Mother Nature and she is “on it” for perfect cruisin’ weather, folks!   Whether you’re travelin’ by Harley, Honda, Indian, Jeep, convertible, pickup truck or RV, pull into our spacious Horsefeathers Roadhouse parking lot and come right on in the front or back door. We offer twice the welcome! Remember, this weekend, our lip-smacking, award-winning BBQ and the rest of our southern specialties are waitin’ on ya!
  • Fishy time: Here’s a little HFR trivia for all of our friends and patrons. Did you know that Lake Norman is the largest freshwater lake situated in NC with over 523 miles of shoreline? And we love fishing too. It’s a great way to relax. Here at Horsefeathers Roadhouse, there’s really no need to catch & clean ’em yourself. Our HFR extensive menu includes Fish & Chips and Fish Tacos, with fish so fresh they almost jump off the plate. We will have plenty of great fish this weekend too!
  • The sounds of the spring: HFR features our locally famous outdoor party deck (2100 sf) that overlooks over two acres with about 240 feet of shoreline on a beautiful Lake Norman cove. Stroll down and check out our part of nature! It will be sweet during Spring Jam to grab a minute outdoors. This weekend and beyond, take advantage of not just our deck, but our restaurant, bar, and game room. We’ll always be honored to serve you!

It’s our huge Spring Jam on Saturday March 21st and it’s time to find us for all the good times at Horsefeathers Roadhouse LKN. We are the number one fun place with the very serious BBQ since 1996. We sizzle great flavor like no other restaurant in Western Carolina and as everyone now knows, our wings are to die for and brisket melts in your mouth!

In fact, we offer 50 cents Wings and BBQ Oysters all day during our Spring Jam Celebration!

Everyone comes to love HFR, along with an advanced beer delivery system with 24 taps, always pouring your favorite fresh drafts and seasonal beers. Our often daily specials bring you in too! You have to remember, our menu is so good you may have to adjust your belt buckle when leaving! Keep comin’ in to visit; we’ll keep our Southern specialties from our on-site cooker and smokehouse comin’ as well!

Celebrate spring at HFR’s Spring Jam on Saturday March 21. For a full fun-check, visit our events calendar often for our daily specials and names of local bands providing the beats on weekends!

Our Stars & Stripes are Flying High at Horsefeathers Roadhouse Lake Norman

HFR 4 flags 1 2 editedHorsefeathers Roadhouse, Sherrills Ford in Lake Norman, takes extreme pride in the United States  Armed Forces and the men and women in service who keep us free. In fact, we fly four Stars and Stripes from our roadhouse roof for the sole purpose of honoring each of our main armed forces: Air Force, Army, Navy and Marines!

We thank you one and all who have served or are currently serving our country in order to keep us free!”  

Here at HFR, we are deeply aware that freedom is never free. The ownership and staff at Horsefeathers Roadhouse honors and respects our military service and its importance, and we recognize the great cost for those in service and their families.

Of course, the Horsefeathers Roadhouse always has its “Welcome Shingle” out for all of you. We encourage all veterans and active service personnel to come to HFR to meet up with family and friends at our lakeside hangout any time. Our doors are open for all who serve and have served.

“Food for thought” for our veteran friends: Richard’s Coffee Shop in Mooresville at 165 N. Main St. has always been a very special gathering place for our LKN vets as well; in fact, we are just a short cruise up NC 150 West to the Horsefeathers Roadhouse from there. When in the mood, feel free to motor or drive to our place and hang with friends in a vet-friendly atmosphere as well that also happens to serve the best BBQ in the area. And, as many of you know, we offer great prices on both our food and our cold beverages, with specials almost every single day of the week.

Three reasons we smile wide with American Pride here at Horsefeathers Roadhouse:

  • Red, White and Blue Honor: Our Stars and Stripes fly high every single day, and so is our pride in our veterans and service personnel. We keep the good times going every single day at HFR because we have the freedom to do just that thanks to our U.S. service men and women.
  • Historic Carolina BBQ Pride: HFR menu options include our famous Classic Carolina burger (beef chili, melted cheddar jack cheese, southern slaw, red onion & yellow mustard), as well as our Carolina Cuban  sandwich (house smoked pork, thick cut kosher dill pickles, Swiss & cheddar cheese with mayo & mustard pressed in a toasted hoagie). Oh, yeah, nothin’ could be finer than to be from Carolina with our serious BBQ!
  • Horsefeathers Roadhouse LKN Pride: We sport eleven feet tall red letters that spell out “HORSEFEATHERS” on the tin roof of our original classic roadhouse. We’re big and as many know, we serve the best BBQ in and around Lake Norman and even Charlotte itself. We have our own on-site cooker and smokehouse that produce our southern specialties, and take fun and games to a whole new level. Horsefeathers Roadhouse is a unique restaurant, bar, sports place and game room all wrapped up in one location. We even feature an outdoor seasonal deck (2100 sf) that overlooks a two-acre park encompassing 390 feet on a Lake Norman cove. Warm weather brings even more fun here on the lake.

Keep an eye on our website events calendar. There’s a lot on tap during the remainder of March here at HFR, including celebration of St. Patty’s Day on Tuesday March 17. Wear green that day as you walk in and get a free draft! Everyone is invited for the“party hearty” with friends and family on the first day of spring, Saturday March 21 at our Horsefeathers Roadhouse Spring Jam. How about Gringo Outlaw and Nunya Business live and onstage for the Jam to remember?

For our dance and music fans, March brings D.J. Mark, Ryan & Robby, Tyler Cannon, and numerous other southern rockin’ bands. What are you waiting for? We provide the dance floor, you provide the moves!

For award-winning BBQ flavor and fire, look to none other than Horsefeathers Roadhouse, the oldest waterin’ hole on Lake Norman. We’ll be delighted to take care of all your dining, grab and go, take out, and catering needs!

In fact, if members of our Kickback Club stop in, they even save money on food and drinks while “kickin’ back” at HFR. That’s fun on our dime – how sweet is that?

Pride of Service, Pride of BBQ, and Pride of the U.S.A! We got it going on every day in Sherrills Ford, Lake Norman; we got the doors unlocked for ya!

LKN Famous Chicken Wings Carry the Ball to Spring: Horsefeathers Roadhouse in Sherrills Ford

wingsThink Spring Training Baseball, March Madness, and the 2015 NFL Draft, and thoughts of great bar food aren’t far behind. This is especially true with Horsefeathers Roadhouse and our finger food like our Lake Norman famous chicken wings served baked, fried, smoked, crispy, crunchy, saucy, smoky, spicy, cheesy, and tangy – whatever makes LKN happy! Maybe you were among the many munching on our wings when the Patriots denied the Seahawks the trophy during Super Bowl XLIX on the very last play.

Here’s an eye popping number: The National Chicken Council had predicted that 1.25 billion wings would be eaten during Super Sunday; enough wings to put 572 wings on every seat in all 32 NFL stadiums, according to the Council. We love stats!

Here at Horsefeathers Roadhouse our smokehouse has been crankin’ full blast as we all get ready for spring! We’ve been smokin’ BBQ since 1996. And we do it with the goal of keeping our guests happy and well-fed no matter what the event or season.

Horsefeathers Roadhouse shares some pretty cool “tidbits” from the National Chicken Council’s 2015 Wing Report:

  • Wing consumption increases the most during sporting events: At HFR, we’re not big on keeping count. Whether smoked or fried, we are always happy to just keep ’em coming for dining in-house or for personal party carry out orders. “Grab and go” is cool too.
  • Fifty-six percent of U.S. adults who eat chicken wings choose ranch dressing on the side: Okay, but we top that at Horsefeathers Roadhouse. Our famous wings are tossed in your choice of sauce, and served with celery & carrots with either house ranch or blue cheese. Woot!
  • Following ranch dressing at the top of the list and then in descending order: Wing lovers choose BBQ sauce; blue cheese; hot sauce; celery; carrots, and eating ’em plain. At HFR Lake Norman we do it all, including a choice of twelve different BBQ sauces ranging from sweet, spicy or tangy.
  • Fifty-four percent of wing eaters prefer bone-in wings to boneless: At HFR we serve up both with traditional, bone-in wings rockin’ it smoked or fried, or boneless with our hand-breaded, fried, finished in the oven Chicken Tenderloins. We do aim to please!
  • Chop, chop: Most wings are cut into two portions. The actual number of wing portions to be sold in 2015 is estimated by the National Chicken Council at 28 billion. Whoa! HFR plans to do its part by serving up a sizable share of those wings – piping hot and sauced right. Just come on in and let our friendly wait staff know exactly the way you like ’em!

Who is hungry for something other than our Horsefeathers famous chicken wings? A popular choice is always our Hawg Wing Dinner (3 smoked & grilled pork shanks slathered in Horsefeathers BBQ and served with southern slaw, hushpuppies & one side). Maybe our house smoked pulled pork hits the spot. We also offer “melt in your mouth” slow smoked beef brisket; our baby back ribs are so dang good they should really be illegal. They are so good and come with plenty of napkins. Our hand-packed flame-grilled burgers should be featured on that national food channel; plus we have pork tacos, fish and chips, and our southern fried chicken breast.

Since we are the only true Roadhouse in Lake Norman, we know the wetter the better. Don’t forget to order an ice cold beer or two or one of our other fine beverages!

Remember, we are Horsefeathers Roadhouse – serving up the best Carolina cookin’ in the Lake Norman area.

Touchdown Panthers!

We ain’t like other BBQ; we smoke the competition!

Let Horsefeathers Roadhouse (HFR) Make Your Romance Sweet and Spicy this Valentine’s Day!

beertapshearts stuart miles

 

Love is in the air. It’s February for golly sakes and we have Valentine’s Day coming fast! Are you feelin’ the excitement yet? Valentine’s Day might seem over-rated by many of us here in Lake Norman, but it is likely that couples hold a more positive opinion of the day.

Let’s have some fun and share the do’s and the don’ts. Take notes. It could stop someone from sleeping on the couch! Top 10 Tips To Avoid A Valentine’s Day Disaster – Advice For Men… From Women.

So what’s a Romeo or Juliet to do? Never fear, the fun “lovin” food and drink professionals at Horsefeathers Roadhouse are here in Sherrills Ford to help ignite some sparks for Saturday, February 14th:

  • Give that special lady or gent a romantic ride to Horsefeathers Roadhouse: Jump on the Harley, Honda or Indian and grab a seat where the two of you have shared some long and happy conversations in the past. Point out the significance of this romantic venue just in case one of you has forgotten  a few starry-eyed details.
  • Nothing says “I Love You!” more than just saying it: If the words fit, say “I love you.” Repeat that as often as possible, and your “bestest” friend will always love hearing it. If expressing the words “I love you” isn’t appropriate, grab a PBR and some smokin’ wings with celery and carrots and enjoy some Wing Dings for Two. How romantic!
  • HFR’s romantically important menu announcement: Our HFR Honey Bird is awesome on Valentine’s Day too; (grilled chicken breast, Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato & honey mustard on a toasted brioche bun). It comes with one side (how about Sweet Potato Chips?) that you could lovingly share across the table or the bar!
  • Flowers always make an impression: Maybe a dozen roses is over-the-top for you, so think one perfect rose instead! Carry in a beautiful red rose that can be placed on the table while you’re dining in comfort and style at Horsefeathers Roadhouse.
  • Remember that Valentine’s Day is all about making someone feel special: A bunch of small romantic gestures sprinkled throughout the day can add up mightily by the time the clock strikes midnight. Or, you can spend a few bucks more on our Kick Starters if your budget permits. It’s all about creativity, caring, and putting in the effort to create new memories with that extra-special someone. There is no better place for love than Horsefeathers Roadhouse!

Prefer to dine at the house for Valentine’s Day instead of driving along beautiful Lake Norman? No problem; give us a call here at Horsefeathers Roadhouse for personal party carry out orders.

Depending on what you order, you could sauce up your selection with one of our sweet sauces – we offer Texas Mild, Sweet Chili, Teriyaki and Horsefeathers BBQ. Or, you could spice things up with a spicy sauce by choosing Texas Hot, Tres Diablos, High Octane or Fire Cracker. Woo Hoo!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Join us for our Valentine’s Party with DJ Mark and dancin’! We got it going on this 14th! LOVE IT!

Remember, we ain’t like other BBQ; we smoke the competition!

3 Ways Horsefeathers Roadhouse Goes All Out in Lake Norman

We bet you don’t know what will make us extra happy here at Horsefeathers Roadhouse as we all move quickly into 2015? It is a simple answer; our goal is to put a big smile on the face of every single person who comes through our door – that is the goal of the friendly HFR folks who all want to make each and every visit special with great bar offerings and country BBQ each and every time you pay us a visit (Our homemade Chili and our famous hand packed cheeseburgers pictured).

We know many of our music-lovin’ patrons were watching when Craig Wayne Boyd made country music history by winning The Voice 2014 finale just before Christmas. Of course, being named the Voice Champion required changes for Boyd – a spiffed-up hair style, more bling, fancier clothes, professional song arrangements, and glitzy staging. He is hittin’ the big time now. Change is good. We here at Horsefeathers can also relate to making changes for success. And we are doing it in the New Year as we feature our own Voice every single week with live entertainment when Dan Campbell, Gringo Outlaw, Grub Works, and HFR Chiliother local bands stopping in to play their hearts out.

Since opening our doors in 1996, we have improved our 8,000 ft. establishment in lots of different ways as well in order to bring smiles to everyone around Lake Norman; here are just three of them:

  • The HFR menu now has more BBQ choices than ever, featuring unique smokehouse specialties that are smoked right here on the premises, along with a wide variety of southern appetizers, entrees and drinks.
  • We have an arcade for all the kids at heart, a rustic bar for adults, pool tables, gaming equipment, party rooms, spacious dining, and kickin’ live music on weekends and sometimes through the week; we offer catering options and even carry out. Here at the Lake we have something for everyone! HFR BURGER
  • Our specialty that we have built on throughout the years? Making everyone feel part of the Horsefeathers Roadhouse family. If you’re happy, we’re happy!

No matter whether the visit is during the day or the evening, our Horsefeathers Roadhouse guests are never disappointed with our fresh ‘Q to table food, generous portions, and our awesome beer and beverage selection and specials. If you are hankerin’ for a really great beer, the bar is open – head down 150 and come right on in!

In fact, every one of us on the HFR team, from our general manager to the wait staff wants everyone to come early and stay late. We value your business above everything else we do. We look forward every day to putting an extra big smile on every face, each and every time you visit Horsefeathers Roadhouse. We have the best down-home BBQ and smokehouse offerings that make each and every visit truly exceptional.
