Most Delicious Downtown!

Statesville, NC

Dine and Dash have a whole new meaning in this story. 

We were amazed at the different options for our culinary adventure. We went on an excursion within a few blocks of downtown Statesville, NC, to see how many places we could eat in a day.  

Our first stop was The Vanilla Bean for a Boba Tea, such a cute place & it was so good. A short walk past the museum to the Bristol Cafe & Catering, an upscale casual dining experience with a Charleston flair and salmon pink exterior. The Cafe is famous for its Avocado toast. Just down the road on the corner of Broad and Center is Groucho’s Deli. Here you can wrap your hands around the all-time famous STP Dipper. Our next stop on the tasting tour is the Broad Street Burger Co. is just a few doors down the sidewalk. We bellied up to the bar and tried the Black widow cocktail, fried cheese curds, and the Sexy Goat. If you’d rather have a beer, Broad Street Burger offers twenty-eight craft beers on tap. If you are feeling the need for a little Tex-Mex, try Smokin’ Southern Cantina, a very day of the dead, Polynesian style Cantina for street tacos and a spicy margarita.

Twisted Oak American Bar and Grill has the feel of a speak-easy where you foresee a great steak, a bottle of wine, or a fabulous old fashion in your very near future. Ali’s Bistro is a quaint little place for a piña colada boba tea, lamb over rice. Pasta Amore means the love of pasta, so we eat pasta! Spaghetti and meatballs are perfect. Marty’s Pub and Grill cool neighborhood bar with games to entertain yourself with friends. Wings and a local beer. Mezzaluna II Italian Restaurant has been in business for over twenty years. This place is charming, with soft lighting with a Tuscan ambiance. Sauteed portabellas and the Veal Pizzaiola are magnificent! 220 Cafe is a contemporary American boutique restaurant offering an array of dishes. The bone-in grilled pork chops with spiced apple, cranberry chutney, and garlic cauliflower mashed with a lovely glass of Pinot Noir were delightful. These are just a few of the restaurants in the Statesville area. Make sure you pop into one and check it out. You won’t be disappointed. Need a foodie friend to go with, hit us up!
