Shelby NC Restaurant Reviews

Once upon a time if people ask me where to go in Shelby North Carolina I would have suggested a trip to Charlotte or the near by mountain communities of Lake Lure and Chimney Rock. However there are now some great places to go and eat in Shelby North Carolina.

Below are some of the best restaurants in Shelby North Carolina.

The Shelby Cafe

If your looking for a restaurant where the locals like to go to eat then you can't go wrong with the Shelby Cafe. They are very well known for huge breakfasts at affordable prices. And they also serve lunch and dinner. You'll find a lot of local atmosphere at the Shelby Cafe. They have a specials board just inside the door and you'll find they serve a wide variety of delightful tasty foods. I would have to give the Shelby Cafe a strong four stars out of a possible 5.

The Shelby Cafe is right in the heart of downtown Shelby North Carolina located at 220 South Lafayette Street. Their phone number is 704 487 8461.

They are really busy on the weekends at breakfast time. If you go on the weekends you may have a short wait but its well worth it.

Mi Pueblito Mexican Restaurant

If you like authentic Mexican Foods at great affordable prices then you can't go wrong with Mi Pueblito's Mexican Restaurant. The atmosphere is as near to Mexico as your going to get in this area of North Carolina. The food is spicy as it should be in a Mexican Restaurant and they always seem to have new menu items.

There is a bar if your looking for mixed drinks and they have all the Mexican Restaurant favorite drinks and a lot more. I have to say that this is one of the cleanest restaurants that I have ever been in. Even their sidewalks and outdoor areas are kept spotlessly clean.

My only drawback is that when they are very busy the parking is bad but you can park on near by streets and safety isn't an issue in Shelby North Carolina. On a plus side I'll have to tell you that chips and salsa are free with every meal. I would have to give Mi Pueblito's a solid 5 stars out of a possible 5 stars. The restaurant really is that good. Some of the best food I have ever had.

You will find Mi Pueblito's located at 213 West Warren Street in Shelby North Carolina and their phone number is 704 482 5155

The Pancake House

The Pancake House in Shelby North Carolina has been the place to go for breakfast in Shelby for many years. If you want a great breakfast cooked to order then this is the place for you. And the Pancakes. Oh yes the Pancakes. I will have to tell you that they make their pancakes to order and they are some of the best in the world. Be sure if you have kids along to try their mini silver dollar pancakes.

They cook everything to order so your going to be pleased with their food. You can order breakfast till 2 P.M. any day of the week at the Pancake House. I will have to say that over the years I have eaten hundreds of meals at the Pancake House and I have never been disappointed. Not ever. And that's saying a lot about any restaurant.

Again as with some places in Shelby North Carolina the parking can be hard especially on Saturday and Sunday which are their busiest days. But I promise you that the food inside more than makes up for the problem with parking.

The Pancake House is located down from Taco Bell at 149 West Dixon Blvd. which is also highway 74 for those of you not familiar with the area. You can call the Pancake House at 704 482 9006.

The Shelby Cafe is one of the better places to eat in Shelby North Carolina. And there's plenty of down home atmosphere.

And yes I know that's saying a lot but it really is that good.

Tonight I was over at Alston Bridges Barbecue and I had the ribs. The portion was nice and large and the sauce left you wanting more and more. They were served with delicious homemade baked beans , barbecue slaw , and some of the best hush puppies I have ever tried. Oh man were they good. And the price of the large barbecue rib plate was under $10. So you can't possibly go wrong with the ribs.

The chopped pulled pork barbecue is oh so juicy and tasty. Again the best I have ever had and believe me I travel a lot and I try barbecue in a lot of different places. But when I'm in Shelby North Carolina I just have to go to Alston Bridges Barbecue for the best barbecue in the world. They have a lot of different things on their menu and believe me I've tried it all and can say everything they serve is simply some of the best food I have ever had.

Ahhhh...one thing I miss about the South is the food. I used to frequent little restaurants in NC and found a lot of good ones.
