Reviewed 11 December 2016

Many years ago Sam and Christa Poore welcomed us to the mountains with guided hikes to area waterfalls. We enjoy shopping in their country store for special gifts and count on them for seasonal essentials like birdseed. We celebrated when they decided to add their restaurant and catering business. This is home cooking at its finest. I drool to the aroma of Christa's fresh baked rolls. My heart skips a beat when I see Sam fire up the smoker. Our Christmas begins with the perfect tree selected from their farm. Buy their stand and never worry about your tree falling. Yesterday we stayed for lunch and shared a Kickin' Chicken Wrap, our favorite, which features chicken smoked on site. I encourage you to try their daily specials and homemade desserts. Their sanitation score from the health department is 100. The Poores are the standard setters. When you visit say hello to Christa and Sam, the owners. They are two of the kindest, most hardworking people on the planet. We are honored to call them friends.

My family and I stopped here during our Thanksgiving vacation, and we were so glad we did. We stopped in for a snack after a long hike through Linville falls, and we ended up driving 30 minutes to come back 3 days later so we could have another amazing sandwich. The homemade yeast buns are so delicious and freshly baked. I had a prime rib sandwich and my husband had a club. We were so pleasantly surprised after expecting a run of the mill grocery deli sandwich. We also bought some cinnamon rolls for breakfast the next morning. They're made with the same homemade bread used for sandwiches and literally blew Cinnabon out of the water! We'll be back for sure!

They make you feel welcome and have plenty of selection for the whole family. The smoked meats are wonderful especially with the fresh baked yeast rolls. We always get her homemade deserts and are always glad we did.

we stopped in off the Blue Ridge Mountain Road to use the bathroom. the menu looked too good to pass up. SO glad we stayed!!!! the daily special was chicken and dumplings and it was the BEST!!!! the potato salad and coleslaw was awesome. Then the desserts were divine!!! All was homemade by Christa - who was a delightful hostess. We felt welcomed and she was helpful with local information. we will go back while we are vacationing her for the week. the store is filled with great find- pickled spicy garlic, pecan honey butter, jewelry and many other neat things...
