Remember in my last post where I told you we took our soup and sandwiches back up and got our money back from Crisp? We went straight from there to Lupie’s. I ride by their Huntersville location all the time on my way to my friend’s house, but never had time to stop. Today was my day to finally try some Lupie’s!
I gotta tell you, when I first went in to Lupie’s, I was a little taken aback. It’s..uh…pretty casual in there. Looks like it could use a lick and a promise, and maybe a coat of paint. But, the servers could not be nicer and you kinda get used to the weird apathy vibe and settle in to eat some hearty (if heart clogging) food.
We didn’t formulate a good plan, and ended up getting kinda the same thing. I got a bowl of chili as I had lost most of my appetite over the Crisp Debacle. It tasted good, but it was so chunky and meaty, I found it more hearty than I cared to eat. It was tasty, it just got to be too much. What was delish to me was the side of cornbread that came with my chili! Good crumb and perfectly warm with butter, yum!
Dustin’s meal was better. He got a Carolina Dog, with chili, slaw, mustard and onions. It came with chips. He let me have one tiny bite. The hot dog was huge, piled high with sloppy toppings. The wiener itself was huge (that’s what she said) and had a nice snap to it. I’ll probably have that next time I go.
Lots of other folks around us were having the meat and three of the day, and enjoying that, so if country cooking is more your speed, you may enjoy that. But you should go. Just take off your fancy pants.
