Open from 11am-10pm daily, El Patron Grill and Cantina is located at 1030 Freeland Dr in Salisbury, North Carolina and is one of Salisbury's top choices for unique Tex Mex cuisine and authentic Mexican dishes.  With daily specials like $2 Taco Tuesdays, and lively events like the Wednesday night Bike Nights, El Patron really is a premier choice for area foodies and folks just looking to have a great time!

Juice Life, An Evolution

--From the Beginning--Many of the folks who call Salisbury home still remember a time when Salisbury was filled with hometown BBQ restaurants and hot dog joints.  The biggest decision we had to make was chopped or sliced.. plain or “all the way.” Today Salisbury has blossomed into a cornucopia of locally owned restaurants, coffee houses, breweries and wineries.  No one is more aware of this change than Juice Life owners Mark and Ashley Honeycutt. Ashley, a native to Salisbury, has always been passionate about bringing healthy food to our community. She began her journey by welcoming us at the former Farmhouse Restaurant, a farm to table operation that introduced Salisbury to a wide variety of salad and veggie plate options.  As Ashley explained, “back then that WAS healthy. We had no idea that what our bodies were lacking was the nutrition that we gain from consuming raw and cold pressed fruits and vegetables.” In October of 2014, the Farmhouse officially closed their doors, but…

Getting In
Bells jingled harmoniously as I slipped through the door at Sweet Meadow Cafe in hopes of finding a seat.  The Sunday morning brunch rush had already begun and I watched as servers buzzed around like a hive of bees, cleaning off tables and making room for the cluster of hungry bodies waiting patiently by the door.  A smiling face looked my way and asked, “Do you have a reservation?” I cringed. Of course I didn’t. I shook my head no and waited to accept my fate. The smile never left her face as she checked her reservation schedule and scanned the room for a spot.  She seemed relieved though when I volunteered to take an open seat at the bar. Menus and silverware secured my place as the server popped around the corner to pour me a cool glass of water. The brunch menu was filled with a wide variety of farm to table breakfast and lunch items including salads, french toast and both breakfast and lunch sandwiches.   The menu …

When Worlds Collide at 44 Mills

My husband and I met about eighteen years ago when we were in college together.  We both worked in restaurants and once we began dating we even worked together.  He spent his days BOH, or Back Of House, cooking anything from sauces and soups to  hand cut steaks and ribs.  I spent my nights FOH, or Front Of House, mixing cocktails at the bar and serving guests.  We were both good at our jobs and found pride in our work.  We learned a lot about how restaurants operate, about what guests expect, and eventually we learned that food would forever remain a big part of our lives. When we finally got married in 2007, we grabbed a flight to Las Vegas and set out on a culinary journey that we would never forget.  Enjoying the iconic Las Vegas buffet,  snails from the top of the Eiffel Tower Restaurant and fresh American dishes from Wolfgang Puck helped us to see what food could and should be.  Above all I think, we learned that great food doesn't have to come from a really fancy restaurant.…
