Page 48 of 61 | 45 Johnny wants a big burger and Mom craves curry? Take Exit 97 off I-95. The Old North State Food Hall beckons with 10 dining experiences — and a bar — under one roof. Moo, serving smoked meats and regional fare; Bean and Bubble, for coffee, bubble tea and poke bowls; and Butter Cream desserts. e full-service bar, dubbed Longleaf Tavern, is located in the old JR's humidor. While it was impossible to try them all in one fell swoop, we made a reasonable dent, including a couple of orders to take home. at was with a little more than 100 bucks spent for the three of us, including tips. e boys gave high marks to the juicy burgers and hand-cut fries from Beef and Barley Smashed and a big thumbs-down to the sweet tea in the food hall's beverage area, which tasted bland and instant. "If you're going to call yourself Old North State, you better bring your sweet tea game," said the dissatisfied customer. Moving on … Green ai chicken curry and decent naan for me from the friendly folks at Curry in a Hurry. Registering a "6" on the spicy scale, it le me wondering if I could have asked for a "4." e mango smoothie tasted a bit sour. Trashed it, then noticed the butter chicken curry was flying out of the place. Also observed that the brick oven at Luna was getting a fierce workout. And the results were admirable. Next time! Ditto for Cuban sandwiches, beef ribs, Mexican favorites and cra beers. So ice cream with creative toppings from Butter Cream ended the food hall experience on a high note. But we also took home a spicy chicken sandwich from Fuku and a super-large portion of bacon and truffle macaroni and cheese from e Mac House. e boys bestowed a "10" on both selections. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the Old North State Food Hall is about an hour's drive north of downtown Fayetteville, barring traffic. e address is 67 JR Road in Selma. 2825 Raeford Rd (910) 485-5865 Carpet | Hardwood | Laminate | Vinyl | Tile | Area Rugs
