I know what you’re thinking…a 30 minute drive just to get some fried chicken? That’s what I thought too until I read up on Keaton’s BBQ outside of Statesville. This no-fuss restaurant tucked back off of a winding road has managed to get a decent amount of press, although I’m under the impression that most of its PR is taken care of by word of mouth.
Keaton’s isn’t somewhere you would accidentally stumble upon. Make the trip up 77 and I-40 to Woodleaf Road, where you’ll find Keaton’s a few miles down on the right. Step up to the counter and order their specialty: the half chicken fried, dipped in their sauce and then grilled. The best side is the homemade mac and cheese.
