Hickory Tavern!!!!!!

Regardless of the loud, obnoxious West Virginia football fans my meal was excellent.

I tried the smothered chicken for the first time. As expected the chicken with sides of rice and mashed potatoes was delicious. The portions were just enough to fill me up, but I still had to have dessert.

It was a challenge keeping up with so many college football games on the surrounding tv screens.

Another bonus was the milk provided with our Tavern Tower chocolate cake.

Warming up at the Hickory Tavern.

After standing outside in cold temps with constant wind watching a soccer game, I needed to have a good sit down meal.  I had several options nearby, but chose to drive a few miles out of the way to visit the nearest Hickory Tavern.  I have a few favorites there and the homemade Tavern Potato Chips are high on the list.  These delicious slices are served with mexi-ranch dressing.  I nearly filled up on the chip and sweet tea.

Fortunately I was still hungry enough to enjoy  a burger.  Another favorite is the Pepper Jack Burger.The Pepper Jack Burger is loaded with,  pepper jack cheese, applewood smoked bacon, jalapenos, lettuce, tomatoes & onions with a side of fries just in case I need more to eat.

Although I was full and finally warm, I still had to order some dessert to go.  The waitress looked surprised when I ordered four Tavern Towers to go.  We had plenty of cake to eat during the following few days.

AJ’s Tavern at Raleigh/Durham Airport

Prior to flying to nashville in July we had extra waiting time and my stomach was yelling “lunch!”   I took a quick glance or two at Cinnabon before deciding that AJ’s tavern would provide a better selection for lunch prior to the short flight ahead.   AJ’s is located at Terminal 1, Near Gate A25 close to the Southwest Airlines gates.   his was very convenient and didnt require a long walk with a full stomach.

After reading the menu twice (the waitress was working a large share of tables) I decided to try the Philly Cheesesteak with hope that there was going to be plenty of cheese.  One issue I have at some restaurants serving Philly Cheesesteaks is that they do not load it with cheese.  When the order arrived I immediately check out the amount of cheese melting on the sandwich.   There could have been more, but after eating the meal, I was satisfied.   The confirmation of eating enough lunch was walking past cinnabon again and deciding not to grab a dessert prior to boarding.
