We wish them all the best in this new restaurant here in Rocky Mount. If you are wondering how to find it, just go behind Pizza Hut in the Eagle Plaza and you will see it!
The Claiborne House B&B guests have another walkable option. It is open for lunch and dinner (and til 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays). Tony and Sierra had the lunch buffet and said it was "Pretty good." It is a salad bar with extended hot food buffet, mashed potatoes and gravy, spaghetti, pulled pork and more.
The main menu had tons of items like a variety of buffalo wings, steaks, smothered chicken, salads.
I had a build-a-burger on Texas Toast with homemade french fries. I was pleased to see jalapenos on the list as well as blue cheese. My only negative would be it was not blue cheese, but blue cheese dressing. They may have to clarify that in the next menu printing for us die-hard bleu cheese maniacs!
ABC License is on the way, they have applied so if you want to have a burger and a beer you will have the option. The space is very large, so I am sure it will be perfect for group gatherings.
The bar has TV's as we watched Dale Jr's car spin out and catch on fire while we were there (in Texas). So I was pleased to see they had the NASCAR race on (since it was rained out yesterday).
We sat in an area I will nickname the wash corner (like our Wash House Cottage) as they had some vintage laundry bric-a-brac there.
