Concord, NC?

Are there any foodies from Concord or Kannapolis who might have found a particularly good eatery, grocery, or butcher? I wind up going to Acapulco on Rt 29 in Kannapolis a lot for tex-mex. I'm frequently the only gringo in there and I've never been disappointed.

    We like Martino's in Afton Village. Good Italian.

      I've been spending a lot of time in Concord lately for University City magazine. Downtown Concord's Union Street area has several places worth checking out, including Gianna's Trattoria, Union Street Bistro and Havana Carolina Cafe, which recently added a small Cuban bakery. Also on that same strip: Chocolatier Barrucand, and Chef's Choice Bakery. If you drive a little east of Concord, to Mount Pleasant (yes, there's an N.C. one), there also is Marvin's Fresh Farmhouse. It's in a small fast-food building that used to be a barbecue restaurant, but Marvin and Debbie Bost are trying to make it into a home-style restaurant focusing on all N.C.- or Cabarrus County ingredients.
