When Scotsman Archibald Leslie settled in Holly Springs, North Carolina, in the early 19th century, he built a 180-acre estate right by the town’s freshwater springs. These days, only the estate’s springs and main house—a nationally registered historic site known as the Leslie-Alford-Mims House—remain. But with their pub, the proprietor’s of Archibald’s Tavern make sure the settler’s name lives on as well.
The tavern’s cooks specialize in staples of American bar food, such as hot wings, wraps filled with philly cheesesteak fixings, and burgers crowned with pepper jack cheese and jalapeños. Selections from an ever-expanding beer list pair perfectly with feasts, which patrons can complement by taking in that day’s game on flat-screen TVs mounted around the bar.
The cooks at Rudy's Pub and Grill are a little busier than those at your average sports bar. In between constructing burgers, they're mixing 14 different wing sauces (two so spicy they require a waiver), making corned beef from scratch, and hand-breading fillets of fish. The menu skews Southern, with options such as smoked-pork nachos, fried pickle chips, and hearty platters of rib eye and potatoes. On the weekends, brunch reigns all day with farm-style dishes like biscuits with sausage gravy.
In one respect, however, Rudy's is the quintessential sports bar. A recent revamp hung the walls with sharp new speakers and LED TVs as large as 80 inches. Beyond the bigger-than-ever games, weekdays offer poker and weekends amp up the crowd with karaoke.
