Everetts Supermarket and Grill, Everetts NC

This place opened up last year and mostly had standard burgers and biscuits type fare at first, but the menu is getting more interesting. Today I had fried frog legs, which are rare enough to justify a post on its own. These were a real treat- lightly breaded and deep fried, served with a Texas Pete style hot sauce on the side. Great stuff. The fries were a touch on the soggy side, slaw was pretty good but not superlative.

Other items of interest include fried hard crabs(I wanted to ask if they're NC crabs but had to run), herring(from Canada)- there's even a herring breakfast plate with grits and eggs, turkey barbecue and barbecue ribs. Sides are the usual collards, rutabagas, etc. I'm going to try the crabs soon and will report back.

A minor warning- seating is very limited- there's one table that will maybe seat four people, and a long table that would probably seat six or so. There can also be a bit of a wait(my frog legs took 20-30 minutes because there was another group in front of me).

The interior is pretty interesting. It's located in a very old building(probably early 1900s), and the floor and much of the interior looks original.

It's located on Alt-64 in Everetts on the corner of 64 and Broad St. From the new 64 Bypass, you'd take exit 507 and make a right at the bottom of the ramp, then another half mile or so.
