Southern Deli & Restaurant

Chef/Owner, Josh Petty, was born in Burlington, NC and was brought up in a family that loved to cook. He developed an appreciation of cooking from his mother and grandmothers, from whom he learned and became passionate about food and the joy of serving others. Having a family garden, Josh also grew to appreciate the value of fresh vegetables and local products. Many of the dishes that appear on Chef Petty’s menu come from old family recipes that he has re-created with his own twist. He is devoted to executing dishes using fresh local and North Carolina based products and services. Josh and his wife, Drea, strive to make Cast Iron Kitchen a community and family oriented restaurant that embodies “Southern hospitality” at its finest.
