Featured Restaurant

Acme Food & Beverage Co.

Acme Food & Beverage Co. has been serving “damn good” Southern American food and drink in Downtown Carrboro since 1998. For the past 20 years Chef and Owner, Kevin Callaghan, has been one of the South’s leading advocates for sustainable and local farmers and the use of their products in his restaurant.  Relationships are at the heart of his food and we’re proud to have our meats on the Acme menu.

While the menu changes seasonally, you will often find our pork featured, including in such favorites as the Forever Roasted Pig, Slow Roasted Pork Belly and Sausage Gumbo. Kevin is one of the few chefs we work with to purchase and break down a whole hog every week and the results are delicious!

Speaking of the whole hog, Kevin and his team also produce an incredible travelling food experience called Salt & Smoke, held each fall just outside Carrboro.  Slow cooked with love, Firsthand Foods’ hogs take center stage. Find out more at www.saltandsmokefest.com.
