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.

  • 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.

Serious BBQ Pork is “Smokin’” Year-Round at Horsefeathers Roadhouse in Lake Norman

hfr 3-15-15 2While spring across the Lake Norman region may signal the unofficial start of serious BBQ’n in backyards across Mooresville, Denver and beyond, here at Horsefeathers Roadhouse our “barbie” is smokin’ and always fired up year-round! Our separate, wood-fired smokehouse out back, known by the locals as the largest stand-alone BBQ smokehouse on Lake Norman and for many miles around, can produce as many an 18 pork shoulders on a single nine hour turn. Who said pigs can’t fly?

At HFR we love all things “pork-licious”, but somehow we missed out on celebrating a little extra for National Pork Month and National Pig Day. We even overlooked giving a shout-out to pork during The Year of the Pig on the Chinese calendar.

At Horsefeathers Roadhouse, it is always better late than never! To make up for lost time, our General Manager Donna is quoted as saying: “Let ’em eat pork!”

We have it going on with 4 pork-lovin’ ideas for making the most of your visits to infamous Horsefeathers Roadhouse LKN restaurant:

  • March WAS National Sauce Month: Oops, we were so busy with our Spring Jam last month that we missed this one, too! We’re extra saucy year-round, so how about going a bit “hawg wild” on your next visit to HFR with our smokehouse specialty Hawg Wings, either Kick Starter style or as a full-fledged dinner? Our smoked & grilled pork shanks are slathered in Horsefeathers BBQ sauce – just as sweet, spicy or tangy as you like ’em.
  • Takin’ sauce in a different direction: Have you tried our house-smoked and grilled Baby Back Ribs, glazed with BBQ? You can order either a half or full rack with your full-meal deal, or a Kick Starter Rib Basket with 3 smoked ribs and fries. We’ll keep you supplied with plenty of napkins!
  • Pork-saucin’ above and beyond shanks or ribs: Browse our HFR menu and you’ll find Pulled Pork and BBQ Sauce married nicely in our Kick Starter Horsefeather Chips, Tots, or Fries and also for our sandwich offering of Pork Tacos. Ditto on napkins cause you’ll need an ample supply!
  • Dislike makin’ bacon?: Here at HFR we cook up bacon specially for you and include it seven mouth-watering ways on our menu: On two of our hand-packed burgers (The Outlaw or the Bacon Cheddar); three of our sandwiches (The [Real] Boss Hog, Texas BLT, or Catawba Club), and two of our salads (House Salad or Chef’s Salad).

Delectable “go-withs” to complement any of our 17 pork-licious menu items include fries, chips, beans, slaw, or onion rings. Don’t forget to select a cold one or two from our 24 tap bar room! Whichever your choices for food and drink, we want you to go home smiling so wide that you just might have some ‘splainin’ to do when you get there!

Have you joined the 3,000+ members of our Horsefeathers Roadhouse KickBack Club, an awards program that just keeps on giving to our regular and every day clientele? There’s no time like the present to get started!

WE spell yummy… H O R S E F E A T H E R S!

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

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.

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.
