Five Properties are Annexed into the Town of Murphy, North Carolina

The town of Murphy, NC continues to grow as it annexed five new properties into the city limits. They total about 12 additional acres now inside the limits. The properties that were annexed are:

  • The property where Zaxby’s Chicken joint will soon be opening (on 64 West)
  • The Big D on 64 West
  • an undeveloped parcel beside where the Sonic Drive-In is located
  • a property behind Circuit World on Andrews Road
  • The shopping center property where Monte Alban’s Mexican Restaurant is (also located there is Cherokee Well Drilling). I would expect for them to apply for a license to serve beer at their restaurant soon.

Many property owners are requesting to be annexed, as expected, as a result of the recent passing of the liquor law in the city limits of Murphy. The law allows beer sales by the glass and in retail establishments, as well as allowing restaurants to serve liquor by the drink.

Liquor by the Drink Coming to Murphy?

Many of our clients are always shocked to find out you can’t get a mixed drink or shot at any of the local restaurants (with the exception of Cherokee Hills Golf Course, which is classified as a resort). Not only that, you can’t buy beer. Does it seem sane when you can buy wine at the grocery store and straight liquor at the ABC store in town?

Either way, Murphy’s Town Board is reconsidering the liquor by the drink option. Wells and West (very influential persons in our community) are trying to generate interest in large chain restaurants coming to Murphy on land they own. Two restaurants want to come badly, but will only do so if they can serve drinks. It was up for vote in 2003 and was not passed – 55% voted no and 45% voted yes.

Will you be able to have a mixed drink with dinner now? It may be coming soon. In most Southern small towns, they eventually allow it and we very well may be next. What do you think? Would you prefer Murphy to be a largely "dry" county or serve alcohol?
