Freg ordered a chopped salad for lunch from Ted’s Famous Kickin’ Chicken. Freg’s massive salad ended up being too much food for him, so he had to pack up about half. The salad included chopped chicken, tomatoes, cheese, croutons, bacon, and somewhere under there lettuce.
Carolyn ordered ten regular wings from Ted’s Famous Kickin’ Chicken. The flavor was called regular but there was still some heat in that sauce. The wings had a nice flavor.
Ant ordered a chicken tender sandwich from Ted’s Famous Kickin’ Chicken. Talk about a sandwich; the tenders were dipped in wing sauce and the coleslaw was BBQ slaw. Ant must have been hungry, because he ate the whole thing.
Fried, cheesy jalapeno poppers from Famous Ted’s Kickin’ Chicken started out lunch off. These guys were delicious, however, when we first bit into them extremely hot melted cheddar cheese almost burned your tongue off.
The awesome dive that is Ted’s Famous. We all enjoyed our lunch and the ambiance from Ted’s this afternoon. Neat little spot.
Freg ordered a low calorie option this evening, Patmos chicken from Soppers Restaurant. A simple but delicious meal of sauteed chicken, mushrooms, olives, penne pasta, parmesan, and garlic in olive oil. Freg was surprised and delighted to find so many olives in his dish.
Ant ordered the manicotti from Soppers Restaurant and did an excellent job of NOT ordering dessert, even after hearing about all the cakes. Good job Ant. This is your classic Italian manicotti, stuffed pasta of ricotta, Romano, parmesan, mozzarella and topped with marinara sauce and more mozzarella.
Finally, Carolyn got to order her spaghetti and meatballs for dinner from Soppers Restaurant. We think she has been craving it for quite some time. Your classic pasta, sauce, and meatballs. Carolyn really enjoyed her dinner.
Ant, Carolyn, and Freg all received a bit of roughage this evening with their starter salads from Soppers Restaurant.
Soppers Restaurant located in downtown Pilot Mountain. We enjoyed a pleasant evening of dining.
Snappy Lunch is located in downtown Mt. Airy. Ant’s father used to take him and his family to eat here after days of adventures. It was closed today but we wanted the picture of the sign anyways.
Ant and Freg both ordered a breakfast bagel sandwich from Troy’s Diner. The sandwich was made with fresh eggs from Buddy’s chickens, YUM! There is also bacon and cheese to assist with deliciousness.
Carolyn ordered an amazing breakfast from Troy’s Diner. Scrambled eggs fresh from Buddy’s chickens, bacon, hash browns, and wheat toast. Needless to say, this sustained her appetite for a while; at least until lunch.
Buddy’s light breakfast from Troy’s Diner. One of his chicken’s egg, bacon, and grits. A nice way to start the day. There’s something to be said about eating fresh eggs that you provided.
Freg ordered the Bronx Bomber for lunch from Macado’s with a side of potato salad. His sandwich included mesquite turkey, corned beef, melted swiss, thousand island dressing, cole slaw, and tomato. That’s a serious sandwich.
Ant ordered the Jackie Gleason sandwich for lunch from Macado’s with a side of potato salad. His sandwich included roast beef, provolone, bacon, and Macado sauce. The sandwich was so large Ant could only eat half of it.
Carolyn ordered some lighter fare for lunch from Macado’s. A house salad with ranch dressing and a cup of their chili. The chili was delicious and pretty filling.
The infamous gorilla inside Macado’s. While some things may have changed since we graduated college from App State, the interior of Macado’s has not; thanks goodness.
The entrance to Macado’s off of King Street. Macado’s ran dinner specials during the week, making it enticing to the broke college kid.
Ant ordered pollo con crema from Dos Amigos. Shredded chicken cooked in cheese and sour cream, comes with tortillas to put your own tacos together. Sided with the beans and rice classic combo. Broccoli and carrots covered in the cheese sauce are Ant’s kind of vegetables.
Freg ordered the ‘Dos Amigos’ from Dos Amigos. Beef with cheese and ranchero sauce, guacamole salad, rice and beans sided this meal. Freg also received some four tortillas to put some tacos together.
Carolyn ordered a number ten from Dos Amigos. A classic combo of two hardshell beef tacos with rice and beans on the side; can’t go wrong.
In Boone a great place to snag some fresh food is Black Cat. Freg ordered the Don’t Be A Jerk burrito. Chicken, cheese, black beans, rice, grilled pineapple, jicama, jerk sauce and topped off with sour cream and hot salsa. Freg cleaned his plate of this monster.
Carolyn ordered the burrito of Brotherly Love, which is Black Cat’s version of a philly, YUM! Grilled steak, onions, green chiles, lettuce, and lots of queso wrapped in a warm tortilla; this burrito hit my hunger spot.
Ant ordered the Thai Me Up burrito from Black Cat. Chicken, spinach, rice, and green coconut curry wrapped in a spinach tortilla. Topped off with peanut sauce and sunflower seeds Ant dug in.
A delicious hoppy beer that isn’t too strong. Subtle hints of orange and a slight sweetness are present, also accompanied by some appropriate bitterness.
Ant has been craving this dish from Cafe Portofino for so long, and today we finally had the reunion. What a fantastic first meal upon returning to Boone. We all three had our own!
Brenna’s delicious dish from Cafe Portofino. With garlic, capers, olives, tomatoes, and red peppers, how can one go wrong?
Daniel’s Philly Steak and Cheese served only with the meat and cheese. Daniel has never been one for too many additions and condiments with his food. It must have been delicious because his plate was clean when he finished!
The Garlic Knots are a fantastic appetizer from Cafe Portofino. These little buttery, garlic bread knots will release your soul. And think, you haven’t even gotten to the main dishes yet!
