Philly, Crispy Chicken and the Sweet Carolina. There's also
a large selection of hand-pattied burgers. These include
an open-faced Horseshoe and the Farmers Special, which
combines a burger, chicken patty, pulled pork, bacon, an
egg and barbecue sauce.
Whatever you order, she won't skimp on the portions.
Take the Boss Hog wrap. Normally wraps are reserved for
lighter fare, but not at The Mudcat. " You better be hungry
when you order it, " Rebecca cautions.
The Boss Hog starts with a generous portion of smoked
pulled pork that is mixed with bacon, banana peppers and
smoked Gouda. It's topped with mozzarella, French fries
and queso, then tightly wrapped in a 14-inch sun-dried
tomato wrap. " When it's on the grill it's massive, " Rebecca
says. " A lot of people don't think it's going to get wrapped.
It's got a lot going on with it, with the queso, the banana
peppers and the crunchiness of the bacon. "
Specialty hand-cut fries in full or half orders round out
the menu. These can be ordered in a number of ways, including the Mud Fry, which is topped with pulled pork and
Of course coffee is a specialty of The Mudcat. Rebecca
sources her beans from local roasters. She samples each
batch black so that she knows what to pair when making
the many specialty coffees at the bar. Among the specialty
drinks are the Sludge, an Oreo-based frappe, and the Gato
Caliente, made with ghost pepper sauce and chocolate.
All of this is made to order, with any reasonable requests fulfilled.
" This is not just The Mudcat, " Rebecca says. " It's got my
name attached to it. So when you come in here and spend
your money I want you to sit down and have a good hearty
meal that not only sticks to your bones but the flavors are
fantastic. I want you to go away and 2 miles down the road
you're still thinking, 'man that was awesome.' "
Mudcat owner Rebecca Moore wants her guests to remember
their meals long after they depart. While she has an extensive menu,
she is always ready and willing to change ingredients to suit diners'
preferences or dietary needs.
