After the Ride: Local Favorites

Pepperoni's Gourmet Pizza - Black Mountain This is the best pizza I have ever had, no more chain pizza's or frozen it's a 30 mile trip one way for us, it's well worth the trip....
Blue Ridge Biscuit Company This is what your plate looks like when you eat here!! Staff is great food is amazing!!
Black Mountain Bistro We both had the seafood chowder. Outstanding! Buttery, but not too rich. We highly recommend it, as it's a regular menu item.
My Father's Pizza Check out the local beer from Pisgah brewers here.
Thai Basil Restaurant Tom Yum Soup . . . Should be called Tom Yummy Soup.
The Veranda Cafe Soups are to die for!
Berliner Kindl German Restaurant The Chocolate Kahlua Mousse Torte is simply out of this world delicious!
Ole's Guacamoles Try the salsa bar. There's a green garlic salsa that is insanely delish
Dark City Deli The "Dude" sandwich is absolutely amazing!
Phil's Bar-B-Que Pit You have to order at a counter ; no wait staff
The Artisan Gourmet Market Most satisfying Cinnamon Roll in town.
The Local Joint Everything is good but the omelets and French toast were wonderful!
HomeGrown The fried chicken, by itself, in a salad or sandwich, is amazing :)
