Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s iconic restaurant and bar is once again in the running for the USAToday 10Best Readers’ Choice 2019 awards.

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (Jan. 10, 2019) – It’s January, and that means it’s time to vote for Whisky River!

Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s iconic restaurant and bar, which has locations in both the Charlotte Doulas International Airport and Raleigh-Durham International Airport, is once again in the running for the USAToday 10Best Readers’ Choice 2019 awards in three categories.

The location at Charlotte Douglas has been nominated in the Best Airport Sit-Down Dining category, and the Raleigh-Durham location is up for awards in the Best Bar and Best Bar/Restaurant Atmosphere categories.

It is familiar territory for the franchise, too, as Whisky River has been a perennial contender in the annual competition. The two locations will be joined later this year by a third, to be located in the Fort Lauderdale airport. In addition, Whisky River’s flagship location is in Uptown Charlotte’s EpiCentre, and the North Myrtle Beach location opened in the fall of 2018 in South Carolina. A mini-Whisky River location is also in operation during race weekends at Charlotte Motor Speedway, and a Whisky River trailer hits several festivals throughout the summer months.

“I think WR brings a unique atmosphere to the airports with live music, good food and a relaxed casual feel in a place where it is sometimes difficult to be relaxed,” said J.R. Rhodes, director of entertainment and brand manager for Whisky River. “We’ve created a concept that everybody enjoys.”

Partnered with HMS Host, Whisky River has been drawing rave reviews since the first airport location was launched in 2014 at Charlotte.
