“The best quick lunch in town”

Once a week or so, my wife and I go to Black Mountain to pick up our daughter at her office and have lunch. Her time is limited, so we're always on the lookout for places where we can get a good lunch with quick service. The Gateway Eatery fills the bill for this better than any place we've found.

You order and pay at the counter and then take a seat either inside or outside. The servers bring your meal to the table and then return afterwards to clear the table. They have a menu, of course, but we all decided to build our own sandwiches. The staff is very happy to accommodate you. In fact this was about the most cheerful service we've received in a long time. It was also efficient. The meals came to the table quickly, and the food was excellent. The price was great. The three of us ate for $28.00 including tip.

Gateway has a small parking lot that always seems to have space available. Parking however, is a little informal. I don't remember seeing any markings on the lot, and people just parked relative to the vehicle right beside them. But, it works. This place is becoming one of our regulars.

The menu had a large selection of tasty breakfast and lunch items. I highly recommend trying one of their many homemade soups!! Everything is fresh and made to order. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. The decor and breathtaking wooden ceiling is really inviting. It's perfect for on the go or a relaxing stay. The location couldn't be more idea off Rte 70 with the scenic view of the mountains.

It's a sweet spot with GREAT food. A MUST try!!!

I love this charming little place! The people are friendly and accommodating. They will fix you anything you want if they have the ingredients. Great for breakfast omelets, etc. Wonderful sandwiches, soup variety, salads for lunch. Food is fresh and items are carefully prepared and tasty!
