You would never think that there was a good restaurant her. Basically they are in a small strip mall with a gas station. All teh food is locally porduced by farmers in teh region. Grass fed beef, local cheeses, all are used at the restaurant. They cook to order. Food is great. Sandwiches to full breakfast and dinner dishes. Wait... More

Place is awesome home made food from scratch. Service was a bit slow but the super nice people made up for it (also I know making it fresh takes a bit of time). My mom and myself stopped here to try something new on our mountain trip and we're not disappointed. I had the big bear, a bacon and chicken... More

Unpretentious but delicious food in an auto service station. Don't be put off by the outside appearance if you are looking for a nice meal.

We had lunch there a couple of months ago and really enjoyed it. We went back recently and again it was surprisingly good. It's a very unassuming store front. Much like the 50's and 60's. So you really need to go in and check it out. You will find great food, fair prices and friendly employees. Lots of free parking.... More

While visiting Asheville we hit The Local Joint for breakfast. Server was friendly and on her game. Food, coffee and 90's playlist were fantastic. We got takeout there for dinner the next night. I had the hummus plate and an awesome salad with blue cheese and spicy pecans and my husband had the special that night - grilled scallops on... More

Been driving past this place for years. Neighbor invited us to go for breakfast. Amazing food. Out of the way location. There is a reason this place has been voted "Best Kept Secret" by the local paper and their "Best of" contest!

We were very impressed with the overall look of this retro eating establishment. The food, however, didn't seem to live up to the appearance of the place. I ordered the chicken satay sticks and they were rather ordinary. Three strips of chicken arranged on a wimpy looking "bed" of lettuce with some dry looking rice noodles arranged for decoration.
