Ben Demory had a powerful entrepreneurial itch. He had a great job working at Augusta Health, and he liked his job. There was only one problem. He loved to cook.
He met up with Carter Raab who, at the time, had his own food truck, Farm Fresh Fixins. Carter graduated from the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Institute and was making a name for himself locally with his Appalachian-inspired cuisine.
Wanting to start his own food truck, Ben picked Carter’s brain as much as possible. As Ben learned more about the food truck business, the two became friends.
Then fate intervened. Seven Arrows brewery in Waynesboro approached Carter about leasing the kitchen. That’s when Carter approached Ben and Nobos Kitchen was born.
The two officially opened March 3rd of this year.
What You Can Expect from the Nobos Kitchen
The joy of owning your own restaurant is that you get to set the standards. And these guys have a seriously high set of measurements.
“We don’t serve any food that we aren’t proud as punch to eat ourselves,” Ben said and Carter echoed the sentiment.
And it shows. The two get as much locally sourced meat and vegetables as possible. The Meating Place supplies their beef, pork, and ribs.
Stover Shop Greenhouses supplies their green leaf lettuce. And Standard Produce knows that anything local gets earmarked for Nobos.
Naturally, Seven Arrows supplies the beer, which the two infuse in their beer cheese, battered fries, shrimp, and fish dishes. Watch out for the appetizers, too!
The salted Bavarian soft pretzels paired with the house-made pepper, and Hops Seven Arrows beer cheese is a hands-down winner.
Other appetizers include house-fried potato chips, fried pickles with zesty sauce, roasted red hummus, chicken wings, and Chorizo Queso Dip.
So, if you want to come in for an afternoon beer and appetizer, you won’t be disappointed.
