Excited about Eating by Ernie Hiers

This edition of Excited about Eating takes us back to Harrisburg, NC and to

49 Yardline, a sports grill with great food. Our first experience in Harrisburg was a few weeks ago at Harrisburg Family House Restaurant and we liked it so much, we decided to try another Harrisburg location. 49 Yardline not only carries all of the pub favorites including wings, burgers and fries, but also tacos, ribs, and seafood.

Dora here. Immediately when we walked in, we noticed that 49 Yardline was light and airy, not dark like some pubs, with booths and high tops along with the bar. It seemed to be a neighborhood hangout with plenty of kids and even firefighters stopping by to eat.

For my lunch, I chose the Rib-Zone. Cheerwine-braised ribs, slaw, and my choice of side, English Peas. The ribs were great, tender, full of meat, and sticky from the caramelized Cheerwine sauce. I would describe these ribs as finger-licking-good.

Dora here. Our waiter was helpful with suggestions, and it was tough to choose from so many creative, over-the-top options. Like a PBJ burger. A burger slathered with peanut butter and topped with candied jalapenos. No, I didn’t get that one. I opted for a more traditional burger, lol, the Swiss Alps with swiss cheese and mushrooms minus the bun (still watching the carbs). This was a fat burger with great char flavor, pink on the inside just like I ordered. Next time we go back, because I am SURE we’ll be back, I’ll be looking for the Fish & Chips or the Chicken Dance. 🙂

What’s the most unusual burger you’ve tried?

We rate this restaurant 4 forks out of 5 for a family friendly restaurant serving great food.
