5 Fun Ways to Beat “Footballitis” at Horsefeathers Roadhouse

The NFL football season is over; the Super Bowl is history, and football withdrawal has set in for many of our Lake Norman football fans. Believe it or not, football withdrawal is a real medical term and often a weekend afternoon struggle, but thankfully here at Horsefeathers Roadhouse and Park in Sherrills Ford, we have the cure for those football blues.

Don’t let classic “footballitis” set in. Jump in the car or hop on the bike and come over to HFR for the best Carolina cooking in the Lake Norman Region. We have great bands Wednesdays and on weekends, and nothing soothes the football blues better than live music. In addition, we also have different drink and food specials every single day of the week. Serious BBQ, southern style cooking, and cold beer are the best cures for those football withdrawal symptoms.

The girls at Horsefeathers offer five great ways to beat “footballitis” at Horsefeathers Roadhouse in Sherrills Ford:

  • Daily domestic draft beer specials: Here at Horsefeathers Roadhouse, we have a great new domestic draft beer special. Domestic draft pints from open to close, for only $1.95, every day, all day and any day. No one can beat that anywhere in the Lake Norman area.
  • NC craft beers on rotation: In addition to our great beer selection and 24 beers on tap, we are constantly adding to an ever growing selection of craft beers. We have recently added Portside Craft Imperial Ale, which has a smooth amber flavor, and also added Terrapin High Five IPA from Georgia, which is a nice golden craft beer.
  • Beyond serious BBQ: Horsefeathers Roadhouse has our own smokehouse right on the property, the largest smokehouse in the area. It is just one aspect of our truly landmark roadhouse. We smoke the best Grade A meats for our mouth-watering BBQ that includes great BBQ plates like pulled pork, baby back ribs, beef brisket and our famous Hawg Wing dinners. Not only do we have serious BBQ, we also have many choices of our homemade BBQ sauces to choose from like sweet, tangy and spicy BBQ sauces.
  • True Southern style cooking: Our famous Horsefeathers Girls also serve the best southern style food across the entire Lake Norman Region. To get rid of those football blues, try our Carolina Cuban, Texas brisket, brisket Rueben, honey bird grilled chicken breast and many other locally great southern style choices like our smoked and fried JUMBO wings.  
  • Live music and entertainment: There is nothing like live music to wash away the memories of the past football season. Here at the HFR, we have live bands on the weekends and our new Feather Rocks Wednesday! Please check out our events calendar for a complete list of all bands and dates.

Don’t just sit at home staring at tennis, golf, and the weather channel waiting for the football season to start again. Head over to Horsefeathers Roadhouse and Park in Sherrills Ford and help us liven up the party and help get rid of those football withdrawal blues.
