This was an off season mid week visit and as others have said, there is not much open. We found Paul's , tried the Indian tacos , they were satisfying and filling. It is a piece of fry bread topped with chilli and cheese, lettuce, tomato and onion if you want it. Don't try picking it up like a regular... More

Homey, but different, buffalo, elk, and pheasant on the menu. I had the elk burger and found it delightful. The next day i had a rueben and it was the absolute best i have ever eaten; perfect balance of meat and sauerkraut and sauce. The coffee is very good as well. Just can't say enough what a great place i... More

We got there, and it was cold outside, but the place was fairly crowded, so we thought, must be good. We went inside and found out the heat was out. The good news of that is when we left, stepping into the cold outdoors wasn't as big of a shock. Haha. They were working on the heat, and did get... More

My husband, two grandsons, and I were looking for a place to eat our New Year's Day black-eyed peas and greens in Cherokee. Some places were already closed for the season so we selected Paul's, a place we had driven by for many years. We were wowed! There was a special -- ribs, black-eyed peas, collards, fried potatoes, and cornbread... More

Food was mediocre. We had cold fried chicken, a burned buffalo burger and macaroni and cheese that appeared to be from a blue box. The service was unremarkable for us but I witnessed the "hostess" and servers being rude to several different parties. I would recommend fast food down the street instead of Paul's. It was certainly not worth the... More

Visited Cherokee NC Christmas week and found a lot of restaurants closed for the season. Paul's dinner thankfully was not. The place is in an old house very well done. Service was great. The corn nuggets were awesome. Both me and the wife had the Indian taco which was very good. They had some good looking cakes and pies in... More

Cherokee is located just outside the East entrance to Smoky Mountain National Park. I was there on a Sunday, and not much was open, so we decided to try this local spot. I was happy with the burger I got, it was cooked medium (which I like) and was served with all the normal fix up. The veggies were fairly... More
