North Gate Station saloon opening on the Fourth
The long anticipated opening of the Honey Dip Saloon next to Sourwood Café is here. The casual restaurant will open with a July 4 “picnic” serving cheeseburgers and French fries and some extras in the newly finished space in the North Gate Station outside Big Canoe.
“We are doing a “burger bash,”” Managing partner and Chef Rick Stacks told Smoke Signals. “A little snippet of what the big menu will be.”
He said he may also have a pulled pork sandwich with peach barbeque sauce and perhaps some dishes that he is currently experimenting with.
“We’ll be open from noon till the food runs out,” Stack said. We are celebrating our country’s birthday.”
The Saloon will eventually have a full bar and TVs and small but expanding menu, according to Stack. There will be cocktails available on the Fourth.
Stack said the burger will be special.
“A gourmet blend of beef with two slices of really good American cheese,” Stack said in describing the burger. “An old fashioned burger, made in the USA for the celebration of the Fourth of July.”
