To our Sweet Magnolias community,
Our top priority is always the safety and well-being of our valued guests and team. Given the rapidly changing nature of COVID-19, we wanted to share some information publicly that we have been discussing and implementing with our staff as the situation has developed and evolves.
Over the past few months, we have:
• Stepped up our deep cleans of our kitchens and dining rooms.
• Intensified mandatory sanitization of door knobs, dining room tables, register, phones, waitress stands, and other high contact surfaces.
• Intensified personal hygiene training with our team.
• Limited non-essential travel for our employees.
• Mandated that employees who feel sick stay home and follow the advice of healthcare professionals. We are taking care to support all employees’ well-being and stability.

Sweet Magnolias mission has always been to use food to create community; we believe good food and service have the power to bring us together. We will reopen for dine-in service beginning Wednesday, 1/13 as long as is safely possible. For those who would rather dine at home, we do still offer our entire menu for take out & will also be offering CURBSIDE or BACK DOOR PICKUP.
Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this illness all over the world. We are deeply grateful to our customers and team members who continue to support Sweet Magnolias.

If you are able, please continue to support your local restaurant, bar, coffee shop, or retailer—the hospitality and service industry is a very large part of the lifeblood of the community we live in, and we are all in this together.

Thank you!
Your Sweet Magnolias Family









Welcome to the Sweet Magnolias Deli & Grill!

Sweet Magnolias Deli & Grill is rooted in the heart of downtown Lillington, in Harnett County. Centrally located near the crossroads of four major North Carolina roads, you’re bound to find yourself nearby!

Although we offer traditional deli sandwiches, like our Corned Beef Rueben, we also make from scratch, an assortment of absolutely delicious “Southern Salads”, soups and desserts. Quickly becoming a local favorite are our fresh, never frozen, Old Fashioned Hamburgers.

Don’t forget to swing by for a quick breakfast before work or to bring in the whole family for anything from our handmade biscuits, a bowl of grits or even pancakes or french toast topped with fresh fruit.

Make sure to check back every week for new and delicious specials, all of which can be found on our social media pages!

Thanks for stopping by and we hope to see you again soon!
