I have to thank Urbanspoon for this one. We were headed to the Lake Norman, North Carolina area to spend the night with friends before continuing on to St. Augustine for a New Year’s vacation. I checked the Urbanspoon app on my iPhone for Mooresville and Joel’s was the top rated restaurant. The phone makes it very easy to obtain directions from my current location so we had no trouble finding it, just a few minutes off Interstate 77.
Previously, we have enjoyed several delicious meals at nearby Thai Lanna but I was up for exploring this evening. There are a lot of eateries off the exits in the vacinity. We have also frequented Monterrey Mexican Restaurant on previous trips – a favorite for my kids. I could eat Asian food practically every day so when Joel’s popped up on my screen, I needn’t look any further. My mind was made up.
According to their menu, Joel was born and raised in the Lake Norman area. The restaurant has been locally owned and operated since 2001.
