I think they must have gone up on prices recently..
We got 3 hotdogs, 3 fries and 3 large drinks and it was
18 dollars!!! That is crazy! For a freakin hotdog?!
I had 3 pieces of cake on the order and had to take those
off. It was 32 dollars with the three pieces of cake..
Will not be going back.

Our first time at the Anchor House was Saturday August 14, 2010. I am not a big fan of seafood...so I was pleasantly surprised by the myriad of menu choices. I found out the Anchor House is under new ownership (for about a year now). The host coup ...

Hands down some of the best home cooked food I've had since the last time i sat at my grandmother's table. The service was excellent and the owners and staff were very welcoming. A relaxed atmosphere rounded out the wonderful dining experience.

May I have some more stars please? My wife and I recently moved to the area and have discovered the Anchor House. We have become regulars and always feel like we are visiting old friends every time we stop in. The soups are the best I've had. The ...

Great food me and my wife love it.

It seems unfair for this to be called a seafood restaurant, although seafood is served there. It used to be more of a seafood restaurant than it is now. Currently, their menu has one item about which I'd like to rave -- the tenderloin medallions, s ...

EXCELLENT BBQ! Stopped at Darrell's by chance while riding motorcycle in the area. The food was great! Next time out, Darrell's will be the destination for the trip.

I love Darrell's! Please don't let anyone from Darrell's read this. I don't want them to go up on their prices. The large chopped BBQ tray is under four dollars! At some places, one has to mark down on either the BBQ, the slaw, or the hush puppies. But, Darrell's has it right on all counts! The Saturday special is the BBQ half chicken. Great! And, the sweet tea is right up there, too!
My criticism -- the ONLY criticism -- of Darrell's is that I am portly, to say the least. Since the restaurant is so small, the tables are very close together. And, they are all table-booths, with no option for an adjustable seat. So, as soon as I am finished eating, I have to get out of there. One would think that at least one or two tables would have unanchored seating. But, alas, no. The option: Darrell's has a great drive-thru, too! Go. By all means, go.

One of the better BBQ restaurants in Rowan County. I've been going the for over 20 years and the quality and taste have always been first-rate. The BBQ is fantastic and the sauce that comes with it just gives it a perfect flavor. The fish is also great and it's not a piece of processed fish like you get in many restaurants. The pies are also delicious. It's a small restaurant and easy to miss near the town's center but Darrell's is worth finding. Open from Wednesday-Saturday. No breakfast offered.

DARRELLS HAS THE BEST SEAFOOD AND BBQ IN NC. MY ENTIRE FAMILY IS FRIENDS WITH DARRELL HIMSELF, WHO IS WORKING THERE EVERYDAY WITH HIS EMPLOYEES. THEY HAVE A RELAXED, SOUTHERN, NASCAR INSPIRED ATTITUDE, BUT ARE ALWAYS WELCOME TO EVERYONE. I COULD LIVE ON THEIR FOOD.
Advice: TRY THE BBQ OR FISH PLATTER WITH A REFRESHING CHEERWINE OR SWEET TEA.
