NC Eatin’: Rowan County
Sunday, November 11, 2007
1602 Jake Alexander Blvd S
I’d planned to have lunch in Gastonia on our way home, but we ended up leaving earlier and having eaten more recently than I expected. We ended up stopping for lunch in Salisbury. I’d visited Salisbury when I was little, though I don’t remember why. Probably to learn about its role in the Civil War as a prisoner of war camp.
As we pulled of the interstate, we saw a sign for “Farmhouse Restaurant.” That sounded promising, so that’s where we headed. It was very cute – rustic. It was kind of like a cross between Cracker Barrel (minus the store) and one of those farmers market restaurants. The other patrons were mostly middle aged locals, which struck me as funny because I’m sure my parents would like the place.
Our server was adorable – a petite young woman who was obviously pregnant. She took good care of us. I had fried chicken, fries, mac & cheese, and a biscuit. I was very pleased with everything except the mac & cheese. If you like slaw, Jason loved the barbecue slaw. Actually, he doesn’t normally like slaw, so you might like the barbecue slaw even if you don’t like regular slaw. The hushpuppies were good except for the hint of fishiness, though some would probably like that. Overall, we were very impressed with the food we got, especially for the price ($6 each). We’d definitely return.
