I love Subas! I live in Mountain City and eat at Subas as often as possible. They are open mid February thru mid December, Lunch and dinner Wednesday through Saturday, and Sunday lunch. Lunch is a great selection of sandwiches, salads, entrees. Dinner is a bigger selection of entrees. Desserts are homemade! And are delightful! You just can't do Subas... More

Usually stop in here for a late lunch on the way home from bike riding in Damascus, VA. You must make a reservation as this small place is always slammed with locals & travelers. This visit I had crawfish cakes (like crab cakes), they were good but not as good as I was expecting them to be. There was more... More

Suba's has good food, and the servers are nice. Seems pricey for the quality, but no complaints here.

Seems I'm one of the few that hasn't given Suba's an excellent rating. My biggest complaint, in my opinion, was unsanitary place settings. The utensils, fork, knife, etc, were laid directly on the table! Not wrapped or placed on napkins. A practice that some would consider acceptable in a cheap diner but not in a nice restaurant where the meals... More

Traveling through Mountain City on business going from Abingdon to Charlotte I decided to spend the night and asked what the best restaurant in town was and directed to Suba's. I got there on a Wednesday evening at about 5:30pm. LuAnn ( I later learned) greeted me and asked if I has a reservation. Being from Dallas and not needing... More

We pass through Mountain City often, but just never thought about stopping to eat here. Until today. Suba's is right there, has good reviews, so what the heck. We got lunch. The menu is large, lots of variety. Wife got the Grilled Tuna Melt, I got the Chicken Ranchero Sandwich. Both came their home-made potato chips. I expected things to... More

Every year we have a gathering of college friends. We picked Suba's for dinner. What a successful choice. We had steak, trout, seafood pasta. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Unfortunately not enough room for desert, but they looked wonderful.

They offer lots of fancy desserts. Large portions. Very expensive. Dress casually. Folks usually eat here on special occasions.

The food, wait staff, and everything was great. Huge desserts. Worth the hour-and-a-half time it took us to get there.
