Good ice cream and BBQ

Old fashioned candies and mountain knickknacks. Order a loaf of sourdough bread to go! BBQ is great. Also, check out Faye's Store around the corner from the Tartan Restaurant in Linville proper.

A great place to stop for an excellent pulled-pork sandwich to hit that spot. Very nice staff. Good food and great antique shopping next door. Easy to miss if you don't make the right turn off the road.

My wife and her friends were more interested in the antiques sold at the store, I was hungry. So we all had lunch at the restaurant and it was great. We had a pulled pork sandwich and baked beans as a side. it was the best BBQ meal I'd had in quite a while. As an added treat there was... More

I'm generally prefer Eastern NC style barbecue, but my pulled pork sandwich was wonderful. (I did add more sauce from the bottles on our table.) The fresh-made sourdough bun helped and the French fries were light and crispy. My wife had the BBQ plate and especially liked her sides of collards and slaw. Everything was so fresh! Ordered at the... More

An old country store at the end of a one lane bridge. On the weekends you can find bluegrass music and some of the best BBQ in the area. After you've eaten you can visit the artist galleries and antique stores on the property. Lots of fun

When I was very young, my uncle took me to this store for some BBQ, and I remember it being delicious and was on fresh sour dough bread. I went back just a month ago - must have been close to 20 years since I've been, and it spoiled me for BBQ and Banana Pudding forever. I was happy eating... More

The atmosphere here is like stepping back in time. Here, you don't have to rush in and out of a meal. The art gallery and store are so neat and you get the sensation of going through rustic finds with pottery and iron works, glass what knots that remind you of grandma's house. The outside is appealing. as you can... More

You can spend hours roaming this wonderful, old country store with all of its fun and interesting merchandise, while at the same time listening to live blue grass musicians (on the weekends) who play at one end of the store. Plus, they serve good food (they especially are known for their BBQ). A great place to browse, come alone, with... More
