Near Exit 49/Speedway area, Famous Toastery is a homegrown brunch spot that’s not to be missed. Breakfast and lunch are both served until they close at 3pm. At dinnertime, follow the mouth-watering smoky scent to the patio at Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q for a true southern spread.

Small but mighty, the patio at Union Street Bistro is situated in the center of Downtown Concord and packed with character. Across the street, Lil Robert’s Place is a funky, local staple serving up pub fare, great beer and live music. Order a snack at the bar and head to the patio out back or snag a front row seat and take in the happenings along Union Street.

Food trucks pair perfectly with a good brew at Cabarrus County craft beer hotspots. Twenty-Six Acres Brewing Company always has something on the calendar, including some awesome outdoor parties. Watch the sunshine fade into twinkle lights on the elevated deck at High Branch Brewing Co. Next door, choose from picnic tables right off the taproom or snag a spot under an umbrella in the beer garden at Cabarrus Brewing Company. With such cool settings, it made be tough to leave these taprooms. But when beautiful weather beckons, these outdoor options are on point.

We had a great time at @26acresbrewing for their Food Truck Friday! Big crowd inside and out, great food and tremendous beer! The best thing about this brewery is its people. Service was second to none from Brad, Emily and Lauren. Excellent conversation with owner Joel Padgett as well. Thanks for the history lessons and other enlightening information. – – – – #beer #craftbeer #concordbeer #concordcraftbeer #concordbrewery #ncbeer #nccraftbeer #ncbrewery #26acresbrewing #breweryevent #beerandmusic #livemusic #foodtruckfriday #beerandfood #drinklocal #localbeer #localcraftbeer #supportlocal #beerwithme #beerwithmeclt #beerwithmecharlotte #beerwithfriends #drinksocial #concord #concordnc #cabarrus #cabarruscounty
