Construction resumed this month at Ironclad Golf, at 368 Country Club Drive in Hampstead. The next phase of the project includes work on a beer garden and another location of Surf City’s Shaka Taco.

Shaka Taco’s Cody Leutgens and Steve Christian have been working with Pender County and Ironclad for a while to make their second location happen.

The original taco restaurant opened in 2017 and has become a favorite restaurant/ gathering spot. At the golf course, look for a similar counter service menu of fresh tacos, taco bowls, wings, and acai bowls.

Their location at the golf course is a part of a bar and beer garden that will have both indoor and outdoor seating.

“People say that it’s the biggest beer garden in the state,” Leutgens said.

The area will include games, food, music and “everything you could want,” he said. They hope to be able to begin serving customers in four-to-six months.

“We are super excited and our guests are excited,” he said.
