First emerging over 35 years ago during Knoxville’s 1982 World’s Fair, Petro’s Chili & Chips quickly became a global visitor favorite and remained a hometown hero long after the world went home. Now its fame is crossing state lines and planting new roots in North Carolina. Petro’s novel N.C. location is located conveniently in the heart of bustling Southern Pines off of 15-501 in the location which previously occupied a Little Caesars pizzeria.
“We've been exploring opportunities in North Carolina for several years and were very excited when this space in Southern Pines became available,” Hale said. “We are looking forward to introducing our new neighbors to a delicious and unique brand that caters to many palates and lifestyles.”
With its customizable options, the menu satisfies a variety of lifestyle diets including gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, Paleo, and ketogenic — to name a few.
