Our travels through North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia have come to an end. We covered a lot of distance and saw a lot of beautiful and historic things and places. But now we are headed home. We missed all our fur babies and I know they missed us too.
We still had a four hour drive from Jacksonville to Charlotte and back to the airport. So there was still some sight seeing from the passenger seat, but because we had a plane to catch, there was not much time for anything else (a lot of this trip was rushed like this too). We knew we needed to eat so, as we drove through Downtown Charlotte, we had our eyes peeled for something that was fairly quick and unique to the area. Our choice was JackBeagle’s. Of course we had to stop there, it is a place that loves dogs just like we do. It’s in their name. 🙂
You could dine inside or outside, but of course, it was a beautiful day and we chose to dine al fresco on the patio, like most everyone else. The place was hoppin’ too.
“JackBeagle’s is a cozy neighborhood hangout with a little attitude AND a lot of FLAVOR! [Their] goal is to WOW you with [their] service as well as made from scratch menu items and recipes.” There are currently three JackBeagle’s restaurants located in the Charlotte, North Carolina area, with more planned for the future. “JackBeagle’s takes pride in the preparation of our award-winning food. We want to be included in your “Best I Ever Had” conversations by using fresh ingredients, preparing home-made sauces, and using the best ingredients possible!” They specialize in a wide variety of homemade “American pub-like” foods with a definite and delicious twist, such as a wide variety of waffle fries, mac n’ cheese specialties, unique burgers and sandwiches, salads and oh so much more.
Larry ordered a cheesesteak sandwich, and I think he ordered the LOCO LOBO – Fresh Chopped Ribeye grilled with Caramelized Onion, Pepper-Jack topped with Fresh Shredded Lettuce, Pickled Cherry Peppers and Chipotle Aioli. I had one of their specialty burgers and chose the MIYAGI’S TERIYAKI RIBEYE – Fresh Chopped Ribeye grilled with Caramelized Peppers, Onions, Provolone and our House BourbonYaki Sauce on Toasted Brioche. Both sandwiches were delicious and truly unique, which also made them fun. I just love trying new foods, and especially foods with “a little attitude”. 🙂 We were in a hurry, and I guess a bit distracted, so unfortunately, I did not get pictures of the food. You’ll just have to trust me when I say they were very tasty and very filling indeed. If I lived in the area, I would probably be a fairly frequent visitor to JackBeagle’s.
I think we really liked JackBeagle’s not only for their scrumptious and unique foods, but also because they are dog lovers too. They had fun dog pictures all over the walls. If a place loves dogs it has to be good, right?! 🙂
I do not know which location we stopped at, but I am assuming all three locations offer the same fun atmosphere and foods with attitude. You can go to their webpage and learn more. http://jackbeagles.com/ Definitely stop in and say hi next time you are in the Charlotte area. I promise you will be in for quite a tasty treat.
