This is a small locally owned establishment that caters to the customer! The menu is varied, but is centered around some of the greatest sandwiches around - the oyster Po boy is my favorite! If you are in Banner Elk, stop in for lunch? If you leave hungry, it's your own fault!

We ate here on our way to beech. We had a party of 5 and everybody enjoyed the food. My wife had the brisket po boy and said it was the best she ever had. I had the Texas burger and it was very good.

I came up from Wilmington to go skiing in Banner Elk. We decided to come by for lunch and Oh My God!!!! We ordered the french dip sandwich and it was the most delicious I ever had! Micheala served us and was just the sweetest! The food came out fast! Great experience all around!

My boyfriend and I were staying in a nearby B&B so we decided to order take out and eat it there. The woman who took my order was courteous and the food was ready quickly even though it was during dinner rush time (we picked it up 15 minutes after we ordered). We ordered a BBQ platter to share and... More

We went for lunch and was told we'd wait 20 min - more like 35. We finally found some seats at the bar. Beer selection was great! Husband found some new beer to love. The gumbo was "fair" (rating from SIL who's from Louisiana). Burger pretty good - definitely chargrilled, which was a plus. PRO: Store attached to restaurant had... More

We went to this restaurant on a Friday evening for some "good" Louisiana-Texas food and had Ribs and Catfish. The ribs appeared not to be grilled (so is this a "Smokehouse") and appeared to have been boiled/ pressure cooked. The catfish was ok however came "dry" with no Tartar or similar sauce. The sweet potato fries were $1 extra but... More

The food hear is very good. Many recipes from the Bayou area of Louisiana. Brisket was good and the bean and rice were perfect. Mama Nita's bread pudding topped off the night. We will visit again if we are in the area.

This is a great little store with touristy type items inside and a wonderful gift selection. When you walk in you will most likely smell fresh baked cookies - they bake them and sell them in store and they smelled delicious! They have a huge selection of hot sauces on the second floor along with local artist wears. Jams, syrup... More
