We stopped in for dinner before going to a show at White Horse. I only had the French fries but they were good and they were hot. My daughter had chicken noodle soup, which, for her, had way too much chicken in it but that...More

When I was greeted by a hostess in a Grateful Dead t-shirt, I knew I had found my kind of place! The selection of music was really good (and included, no surprise, a few Dead tunes). I really liked the meaty chili - quite spicy...More

Food was okay. Four of us had dinner. Food was fine, but nothing special. Took a long time to get our food. Waitress was not very attentive and slow to refill drinks.

I've been here before and returned with some local guest and the food was good - not "blow me away good", but good. Two ordered the Fish and Chips and the fish looked amazing. Tortillas on the tacos were pretty tasteless and the slaw served...More

We really enjoy eating here. Their fried chicken plate is awesome. The service is good but I can see how they might get overwhelmed when they are really busy. We enjoyed it so much we visited this place twice during our stay in Black Mountain.
