Good eats in Cornelius/Huntersville NC area

  • m

We just moved here and it'd be great to know where the good food is. Right now we're especially interested in places where you can get food to go because we have a young baby who is not restaurant-friendly.

    Mickey & Mooches is a little pricey but great.

    La Patisserie Mooresville 704 799 1633 Some of the best cheeseckae and other goodies anywhere.

    A hole in the wall BBQ place...exit 45 off 77 beside the gas station, just before you get to Statesville. Can't remember the name of the place Bessie's BBQ or something like that.
