After another 6-7 hours of jamming out to the tunes in the car we arrived in Mooresville NC. Home of Redneck Fries. You can see we decided to go for BBQ. I found out I am living in a mixed marriage, well I always knew it but I never had it so clearly defined as in this restaurant. I drink Southern Sweet Tea and D drinks...Yankee Tea! How will we ever be able to continue live together? Oh wait we live in a Yankee state it is OK.
All that beautiful Southern food was consumed at Lancaster's. We asked the desk clerk at the hotel to recommend a BBQ place and this is what she pointed us to. Yeah, I fell a bit in love with her. Her favorite thing is the fried pickles. I wanted to try them but my stomach overruled me for the Redneck Fries. Oh so tasty!
Since Mooresville, NC is Race City USA we got to eat under all these NASCAR hoods. Directly above me was a Cartoon Network Scooby Doo one. I love Scooby Doo and a whole lot of other cartoons, but Scooby is pretty close to the top of that list.
And on the lower level a bus you can eat in! The cool thing about this restaurant was their policy for the NASCAR drivers you're not allowed to ask for signatures while they are eating.
Since D and I are not big NASCAR fans we could have been sitting next to someone and not even have known it. Nah, the place was fairly empty and I think I could recognize some of them, or at least the driver type. Who am I kidding I was looking longingly into my lover's fries, I mean eyes.
Not a bad way to round out the driving portion of our trip. One thing I miss about not living in the south are the hush puppies. I don't think I've been offered hush puppies once while living in NY. Guess next year's road trip will have to remedy the hush puppy situation?
