Neat store and good food

The store has a wide variety of old time candies and pantry goods. The restaurant often has live local music and good food at a reasonable price

While driving around the High Country trying to see everything we could, my family and I found the Old Hampton Store. But...it was closed! So next time we were up in the area, we went there again. Closed! So...next time we went back, finally got it right and they were open. Never give up! It was absolutely one of the... More

Hampton Store is the cutest and best store to stop at and go back in time!! I just love the counter where you check out. Its so much like an old fashion store. They have so much to choose from. While your shopping and eating you can also listen to some great live music. This is our 3rd time in... More

My husband and I have eaten here two years in a row. The food is fabulous and well worth the visit. We always get the pulled pork sandwich and this time had macaroni and cheese for our side. Very tasty!

What? This place isn't where they sell the pecans. Well, go in anyway. . Honey, come in. You won't believe this place! So, I did. Who knew a little country store could be so much fun? Or that said store would have a trio playing Blue Grass? Or that the Brunswick Stew was almost as good as my sweetie's? Talk... More

The setting is a general store full of mountain items: t-shirts, candies, and cute Knick-knacks. The food is classic BBQ, we had excellent pulled pork. Order at a counter and they bring it to your table. We were fortunate to be there while the Typical Mountain Boys were playing bluegrass. They were excellent musicians and charming showmen. We had a... More

We had the BEST time at this place. I found out about the location through Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. We showed up around lunch time and headed in. Parking is located at the front door or across the street in some grassy areas. The "general store" area is the first place you come to. Great... More

When we are in the area for our yearly visit to the mountains we always make an effort to stop for lunch. Since it's October and they have lots of people in the area they usually have music. The music was wonderful this year. Highly recommended for a quick lunch before or after a hike or just riding around in... More

I asked if they were closed and they asked me what I wanted. I told them Brunswick Stew (for my husband) to go. They said no problem. When they... More
