I visited Freeborne's on July 5th, 2014. If you're a motorcycle enthusiast, and anywhere near Laurel Springs, NC then you're going to want to stop here. Believe me, getting here is spectacular! This is a biker friendly establishment and often you'll find vendor tents with various wares for sale on the weekends. But we came here for the food. So we got our table and sat down. Being someone who loves hot spicy foods one of my first checks of a new menu is to see if they have hot wings. I don't mean those Buffalo wings, those are for amateurs. Don't get me wrong, they're good, I love them, but when you're looking for heat, they don't deliver. I always ask "What's the hottest sauce you have for your wings?" The polite staff at Freeborne's let me know that "Dragon's Breath" is there hottest. Being a well qualified capsaicin gastronomy aficionado I doubted these wings were going to cause me any grief; so I ordered 5 of them. Well, they arrived at the table with everyone else's orders and we all dug in. The very first bite of these wings let me know that I wasn't at BW3's or anywhere else I'd been for wings in the last 10 years or so. They bit me back immediately! I was pleasantly surprised that they were actually full of flavor and abundantly spicy. One wing down and I was on to number two. The heat was not subsiding. The second wing just fueled the fire in my mouth. I was happy, but now watchful. Those at the table saw my sweating and the slow down on consumption. I pressed on to number three. The burn was fully enveloping my mouth and was now beginning to make its way down my throat. Wing three was a chore. To spare you the agonizing details of this encounter I folded here. Being humbled in front of my tablemates was just salt on the wound. My wife, regarding my love of spicy food, says "food shouldn't hurt". I was at this time, inclined to agree with her; much akin to the drunken promises of "I'll never do it again." So yea, if you're a lover of spicy food, and I mean a serious one, then you owe yourself a trip here to challenge the Dragon's Breath wings. I came back some weeks later, being better prepared mentally, and took down all the wings. They are blistering hot! (a couple times) wink. I will definately be back and I will certainly order these wings!
I spent the weekend here with a bunch of friends. The restaurant, bar, and store, and motel are owned by the same people. The rooms are small, with 2 double beds, nightstand, desk, and bathroom with stand up shower. Very clean and cozy, reminded me somewhat of a ski lodge type room. The restaurant serves opens at 7am for breakfast. They also serve lunch, dinner, and appetizers. There is something for everyone on the menu and we did not try anything we did not like. We ate here all weekend! You can eat in the restaurant area which is very casual and clean and there are several tables, or you can eat in the bar, which also is very clean and has some high top tables. They even delivered a pizza to my friend's room. Get a burger and hot chips or fried pickles (or both!) Yummy! There is entertainment all weekend. Friday was a 2 man band, Saturday was a DJ, and Sunday was an outside band at 2pm, but we had to leave in the morning. There were several picnic tables out back, and I'm told it gets pretty busy. We left for a ride after a late breakfast on Saturday and the parking lot was FULL of motorcycles. Apparently many people stop here for lunch on the weekend when out for a ride. DO NOT LET THE MOTORCYCLES SCARE YOU AWAY! This is NOT your rough kinda biker bar/restaurant! The staff is so friendly and will go out of their way to make your visit comfortable. My husband and I cannot wait to visit again!
Freeborne's was featured in an article in Our State magazine as the best restaurant in Alleghany County, so we were taking a winery tour, so we planned on eating here. On the way to the winery, we passed a place where the parking lot was full of motorcycles and the place looked like a 50's motorlodge, so we decided this could not possibly be the place. We went on to the winery, and while there, we asked where they would recommend a place to eat lunch. Everybody said, Freeborne's. I asked if it was a biker bar and they said not to pay attention to that. Boy! Am I glad we decided to eat here! I had the absolute best hamburger I've ever had in my life. It tasted as if they had just taken it off the charcoal grill. No way was it a typical diner burger. My friend, who I have never seen eat a burger, had one too. We fell in love with this place. This proves to me you can't always tell by the outside of the place, what you might find inside. Do yourself a favor and make a trip here.
