Quiet interesting waterfront town “village”. A few places to eat. We ate at a funky corner restaurant with really good food.
Small family owned restaurant. Limited menu but plenty of options. Known for cat fish and pork chops. Lots of locals
Good. Often has long lines. Lots of college students. Bacon was terrific
Rather go here than Graceland. Not expensive, commercial or crowded
Laid back and fun. Lot’s of beer. Food was good
Very enjoyable location with great food. I would agree with those who say the meat is a bit dry. We got sliced brisket and pulled pork. It could have been warmer. Coleslaw was good. The BBQ beans have lots of meat and were my favorite. The baked potato salad is basically potato casserole. Tasty but I wish I’d gotten the cold potato salad. Neither of us were able to eat all of our food. Over all good food and great stop. There’s a bakery/cafe, Dented Bucket, next door. Both were full of locals.
Lovely town in western nc. The tubs are private and outdoors. There’s a wooden fence/privacy fence. 1 hour in the whirlpool filled with hot mineral water from the spring. It’s cleaned after each use. Get a massage while there!
Nice clean 2 star hotel. Relatively new.
We visited during the pandemic so they were on a reduced scale. The food was mediocre at best. Kind of like a Texas Roadhouse. It’s a local chain. All the barbecue joints we wanted to go to or closed at the time.
National Geographic once said they had the best chicken fried steak in the world! Cash only. The locals and server all knew each other by name. Don’t let the exterior dissuade you from going. Food is homemade, simple, delicious. Very run down and sketchy from the outside and pretty much the same on the inside
