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.
Fresh Wood Fired Pizza Try the Tuscan Salad and the baby blue pizza (blue cheese, carmelized onions, pears) Both were great and an unexpected find.
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 Everything we've ordered is fantastic and the restaurant feels like a quaint German family restaurant in a small village. I love the condiment choices too.
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.
HomeGrown The fried chicken, by itself, in a salad or sandwich, is amazing :)
Plant Delicious gourmet raw food at wonderful prices. Stop by while on the Dherbs FULL BODY CLEANSE.
Stoney Knob Cafe Shrimp and grits are to die for!!
Firehouse Subs The New York Steamer is awesome,You gotta try it!
Mellow Mushroom enjoy the mighty meaty! GO PETA!! People Eating Tasty Animals
