5 Reasons Horsefeathers Roadhouse Is THE Lake Norman Road Trip Destination!

HFR dinner plate11334262_641691569298005_4530218973087915621_oWhether people call it the Tar Heel State, the Old North State, North Carolina or just NC, summer is an amazing time to enjoy good food, all the good times, and explore all that is available from the mountains to the beach. Take to the road to discover fascinating historic sites and our state’s beautiful natural resources that keep lovers of the outdoors extremely happy; just make sure you visit Horsefeathers Roadhouse (HFR) in Sherrills Ford on your road trip.

We all know, the Piedmont Region around Lake Norman NC is a great place to live and visit. On warm summer days and nights, the lake’s sparkling open waters and numerous inlets in and around Cornelius, Davidson, Sherrill Ford and Denver provide great fishing and water-activities. Nothing is better than the gorgeous North Carolina blue sky above all decked out among fluffy cirrus clouds. August is indeed the time for a Lake Norman Road Trip along I – 77 or Highway 150. Each thoroughfare crosses the prettiest lake we know!

Every late summer outing needs the good times to happen; after all, school and fall are coming back fast. It’s time to shut work down, climb on the bike or hop in the car, and hit the road! Remember traveling around the North Carolina and Lake Norman makes everyone hungry. At lunch or dinner time, follow the words of the Grail Knight and “choose wisely.”

The cool staff at Horsefeathers Roadhouse in Lake Norman offers five great reasons to make the stop at HFR:

  • Specialty sandwiches: Tired of the “wrapped and sacked sandwiches” made for eating on the run? Think outside the box (or sack)! You deserve southern-style specialty sandwiches made fresh and served hot. Forget quarter pounders and the drive through; choose 8 oz. burgers, hand patted, flame grilled to perfection, and handsomely served on brioche buns. For a head turner, order award-winning serious BBQ! Sandwiches like these will grab your attention and warrant envy from the people without one.
  • Dining space galore: Does your vehicle leave you feeling a bit squished? Is it time to get off the bike for a few? When it’s time to eat, we need space, lots of space. Horsefeathers Roadhouse offers a 4,000 sq. ft. restaurant with an arcade for kids of all ages and a quiet bar for adults to sit, unwind and plan the next phase of the day. Add a 2,100 sq. ft. outdoor seasonal deck for wandering to and fro and the place becomes home.
  • Southern smokehouse specialties: Consider pampering your taste buds with mouth-watering pulled pork, delicious beef brisket, sweet baby back ribs, world famous chicken wings, and our one of a kind smoked or grilled Hawg Wings (pork shanks slathered in a specialty BBQ sauce). Being saucy is the theme when the smoked meats are cooked right on the premises!
  • Gold-plated menu: Our sandwiches are always big winners, but variety is indeed the spice of life. HFR features a full menu that includes awesome appetizers; smokehouse specialties; chicken wings; chicken, fish and beef entrees; flatbread pizza; southern fried baskets; a Burger Shop; soups and salads, and nine side dishes from which to choose. Now that’s a 24-karat-gold plated menu!
  • “Whistle-wetters” to the max: Few dining spots can claim a choice of dozens of craft drafts and old favorites, micro and macro, on tap every day of the week. There are also a lot of choices behind our 11-door cooler. Beer, wine, freshly brewed sweet tea, icy cold soft drinks – we have choices galore that are guaranteed to wet your whistle in the best way possible!

All five of the above advice and our awesome menu fit Sherrill Ford NC’s famous Horsefeathers Roadhouse to a tee! The moral of this story: Whether traveling this summer, or anytime year round, plan to upgrade your road trip by dining and relaxing at Horsefeathers Roadhouse, the oldest watering’ hole on Lake Norman.

Our motto: Be different! Keep the party going! There’s never a shortage of action and fun at Horsefeathers Roadhouse in Sherrills Ford NC! #MorethanBBQ

5 Fun-filled Reasons to Chill this Summer at Horsefeathers Roadhouse

IMG-20150321-01554No matter how you slice and dice it, summertime is simply “sun-sational”! Our minds operate better in hot weather, according to researchers who study what is between our ears. They have discovered that our brains have a built-in mechanism for seasonal time-keeping that directly affects our moods and sleep habits. We say that is pretty cool. No wonder we stay so focused on fun in the sun!

At Horsefeathers Roadhouse (HFR) Lake Norman we strive to keep things simple on these sun-filled, balmy days. “Brain research” aside, it is pretty much a “no-brainer” that during the summertime, chillin’ out at Horsefeathers is incredibly satisfying!

The perfect environment for a great time is just 20 minutes from anywhere in the Piedmont, from Lincolnton to Mooresville right here in North Carolina’s Lake Norman country.

As outdoor temperatures rise, here are five summer filled reasons to choose the legendary Horsefeathers Roadhouse Lake Norman for your relaxin’ pleasure:

  • 8,000 sq. ft. of in-the-house entertainment: Come right on in – the weather is perfect indoors at HFR, day or evening! Dine on unsurpassed BBQ and other southern menu delights; kick back for your TV fix (don’t miss a single sporting event!); shoot pool; twirl fancy-like on the dance floor, or just lay claim to a barstool and chat with a buddy (or two). On Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in the summer and fall, we have live music featuring Country/Southern Rock beats. Sweet!
  • 2,100 sq. ft. of outdoor loafin’ space: As satisfying as our HFR indoor entertainment/dining complex may be, we know that our guests cannot let summer slip by without taking in the beauty of the outdoors. Our two-level HUGE deck provides prime space for live music, sippin’ brew, visiting, or just nature gazing. Put your boots up on the table.
  • Spirit-lifting camaraderie: Everyone needs people! Come with friends in tow, or mingle while you’re here for some informal meet and greet. Horsefeathers Roadhouse is a laid-back, relaxed hangout where you aren’t expected to sit bashfully in one place, dine, pay the tab and then waltz out the door. No-no-NO! Our “regulars” have mastered the art of wandering around and making themselves right at home; we invite our new guests to join in that tradition! Head to the bar and grab a drink; the ladies are pourin’.
  • Icy cold beverages galore: When temperatures rise, there’s nothing quite the equal of chillin’ with a cold one! Horsefeathers Roadhouse provides serious thirst quenchin’ with brews from our 24 taps, or bottled selections from our 11 door cooler. Plus we offer sweet tea and other icy cold soft drinks, of course! 
  • Our kitchen can take the heat: Here at HFR we do the everyday “kitcheny” jobs our guests don’t have time to do, want to do, or know how to do. Cookin’ southern is our specialty, and our menu says it all! Come right on in, call us for delivery, or stop by for take- out anytime, including large bulk orders for home events.

This summer, beat the heat by chillin’ at Horsefeathers Roadhouse, Lake Norman. Our friendly staff is ready to serve you with top-notch southern foods all wrapped up in an abundance of smiles. Our parking lot is huge. Our food and entertainment simply cannot be beat. We hope to see ya soon!

6 Ways to Celebrate the 4th of July at Horsefeathers Roadhouse

HFR 4 flags 1Summer activities are in full swing here in North Carolina’s Lake Norman country, the Piedmont and the Foothills and we are “all in” at Horsefeathers Roadhouse. We are dedicated to making life so much easier. And we want to see everyone fully relaxed and relishing each day ‘round the lake.

As the 4th of July holiday draws near, we at HFR consider it an honor to have our own Stars and Stripes flying high daily across our entire roadhouse roof. The American Flags serve as a continuous reminder of the sacrifices of thousands of men and women who freed our nation and have since kept it free.

During these sun-filled summer days, let us deliver every dining need so that friends and family can breeze stress-free through family picnics, reunions, day trips and holiday fun. Our HFR on-site cooker and smokehouse is in operation seven days a week, providing smokin’ hot BBQ and other delicious chicken and meats for feasting and party-giving pleasure. We’re here for everyone in the region from Huntersville to Maiden, and we do like to be neighborly and hospitable in the best of Southern ways!

The Fourth of July is on a Saturday this year, lending the holiday to a whole weekend of celebration. For chilling out totally these sun-kissed summer days, remember that Horsefeathers Roadhouse is only a phone call or visit away:

  • Slap on the sunscreen, hit the water, and cook NOT: At Lake Norman, locals and tourists alike revel in shining water, convenient marinas, sailing, boating, kayaking and fishing. With such gorgeous scenery, let us do the cookin’, while you do the lookin’! HFR‘s yummy take-outs include any of our famous smokehouse specialties such as chicken wings, baby back ribs, or our finger-lickin’ pork shank Hawg Wings. Our food menu is extensive, plus we offer a wide range of cold brews, sweet tea and soft drinks. Load up the coolers – just call (704) 966-0192 to place your orders.
  • Stay cool while entertaining: Summer means picnics, reunions, and sun-sational times! If peeling dozens of hard-boiled eggs for salads, or setting up and cleaning up indoors or out for get-togethers is not in the plans, then our party rooms are available at HFR. They are perfect for reunions and large group events. Or, select take out anytime with large bulk orders for home events. We’re waitin’ on you, and we do aim to please!
  • Go historic and dine well: Planning a family vacation or an overnight “staycation”? Don’t miss the many historic sites within an easy drive of Horsefeathers. Pull off the road when hunger strikes, and visit us in Sherrills Ford, NC, about a mile north of Hwy 150, just east of the intersection of Mt. Pleasant Rd. and Little Mountain Road.
  • Good times abound: We’re 8,000 sq. ft. BIG, with outdoor seating on two levels, games and TV, pool, and Country/Southern Rock live music for dancin’ or toe-tapping pleasure.
  • Exceptional food is our norm: We feature our famous HFR Chicken Wings and equally-famous pork shank home-cooked Hawg Wings. With a full menu of items to choose from, we have it all.
  • Thirsty for a cold one?: We offer an advanced beer delivery system with 24 taps, a broad selection of canned and bottled beers in an 11 door cooler, and freshly brewed sweet tea and other soft drinks.
