Hot Chile!

Wife & I stopped by for a quick beer and bowl of chile. Wow! Chile is good, meaty, and hot!! A little heavy on the onions, but the pieces are big enough to pick-out if you want to. We'll be back.

Zero atmosphere but the food's good, the service friendly and fast, and the beer cold. Don't miss the salmon sandwich.

Perfect bar atmosphere and the food is really good. Pool tables and surprisingly, pretty kid friendly. Live music at night.

Had lunch and two points over sandwiches on our free day while moving out daughter into college in Boone. The bartender/waiter/doing everything guy was really something. Gregarious, attentive, and an overall character fun to be around. Unfortunately, I can't remember what sandwich I had (probably due to be two pints) but I know it was good. Beer selection on tap...

We always make this our yearly stop when we stay in the area. The food is excellent pub faire and reasonable. The service is superb. They even remember what we like before we order. Wouldn't visit the area without at least one, but usually more visits.

Beer is a bit pricey, but they always have a good selection of off-the-mountain beers. They can be crowded with the hippy crowd on some days (Tuesdays with el-cheapo tacos) but the local hipsters are harmless and fun to be around. You may even run into a famous sociology professor while there.

Boone Saloon is easily the best bar on King Street for drinks and meeting people if you're not just into the college scene in a college town. The food is good and reasonably priced, especially if you hit Taco Tuesday for a solid cheap meal and lively bar scene. I've always had great service, but I am a bit of... More
