5 Reasons Horsefeathers Roadhouse is as HOT as the Carolina Panthers



The Carolina Panthers are the hottest N.F.L. team and in first place in their division, just like our award winning hickory smoked BBQ at Horsefeathers Roadhouse. November and the upcoming holiday season are absolutely great times to enjoy college and pro football, smokin’ hot BBQ, Lake Norman famous chicken wings, huge hot dogs and cold beer; and there is no better time that the weekends at HFR!

Being at Horsefeathers on game days is better than being at the Bank of America Stadium. There just is not food this good anywhere else and we offer a wide variety of draft and bottled beer as well. What makes our award winning hickory smoked BBQ so good? We cook and smoke it ourselves. HFR has the largest in-house cooker and smokehouse in the entire Lake Norman area. Here at Horsefeathers Roadhouse, we take our BBQ very seriously and we cook up the finest array of hickory smoked USDA Prime meats and mouth-watering BBQ in the region.

Whether game day is college football Saturday, NFL Sunday or Monday Night Football, we have the games on our eleven televisions along with the best game day food and cold beer anywhere in the Lake Norman area.

Let the gang at HFR make game day a smokin’ hot day where you can enjoy mouth-watering fare like:

  • Awesome Kick Starters: Here at Horsefeathers Roadhouse, we call our appetizers, Kick Starters, a great way to get the game started. Just to mention a few of our Kick Starter appetizers that include our Roadhouse quesadillas, Hawg Wings, rib baskets, cheese sticks and incredible fire cracker shrimp; now that is what we call smoking’.
  • Our Lake Norman Famous  Jumbo Wings: Football games on the roadhouse screen just are not complete without wings, and we have the best ones around including smoked jumbo wings, fried wings and chicken tenderloins. Along with our HFR Lake Norman famous wings, choose from one of our homemade spicy, tangy and sweet sauces.
  • Local Smokehouse Specialties: Our smokehouse specialties, straight from our own smokehouse, are what it’s all about here at HFR. Our smokehouse specialties are so good, just the smell makes your mouth water. Smokehouse BBQ, baby back ribs that are house smoked and glazed, a 12 oz. hand pulled pork plate, Hawg Wing dinner or a beef brisket plate of slow smoked beef are daily culinary experiences for our patrons!
  • The Best Prime Angus Burgers: Sometimes there is nothing like a huge, juicy 100% Grade A Prime Angus burger and a cold beer while watching the Panthers on game day. We have eight delicious burgers to choose from, including a steak burger with Philly ribeye; build your own burger as well!
  • The Coldest Beer in North Carolina: The only thing that isn’t deliciously hot at HFR is our fresh on-tap beers. Along with our smokin’ hot BBQ, we have the freshest beer in the Lake Norman area. We offer 24 beers on tap with our advanced beer delivery system including your favorite draft beers and seasonal beers. Football season is a great time of year for an ice cold one.
