This is a wonderful place to eat! I had BBQ on our first day there. The next day we went back and I enjoyed the real baked mac 'n cheese, baked beans, slaw, and black-eyed pea salad. So yummy! My mom had pimento cheese sandwich the first day and a delicious salad the next. If we had stayed another day, we would have gone again. Also had live music at lunchtime. Within walking distance of Gable Haus Country Inn & Linville Cottages.

My wife and I had dinner here this past weekend. We were pleasantly surprised with wonderful food, wine and live music. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

We came across their sign on RT221 and decided to seek them out. What a wonderful surprise! The pulled pork is the best, as is the potato salad. Lots of southern style menu items. Everything is home made, even their 3 different BBQ sauces. Oh,,,, and don't think that you are finished after this. You can't leave without having some of their home made blackberry cobbler and ice cream.
The store has a wonderful old general store feel with lots of locally made goodies.
They also have an inside stage and offer live music daily. Check out their website for scheduled events.

The location makes it a perfect stop after a visit to Grandfather Mountain. We came in for lunch. They had live Bluegrass music. That was a nice surprise. Lunch was great. We had pulled pork, smoked turkey, green beans, mac-n-cheese. Everything was delicious. My husband raved over the sandwich buns. There is so much to look at next door in their arts building. We loved our visit and will definitely return on our next trip!

We loved it and cant wait to go back. Food was great, good service, live music, nostalgic. My 14 and 10 yr old loved it too. Best mac n cheese, great chicken salad and both kids had bbq sandwich. The bread is local and delicious!!
