Always Good Food and Good Service

Every visit to Murphy, NC which is at least twice a year includes dining at Herb's. The food and service is consistently good. I always enjoy the salad bar with my meal. I look forward to returning soon!!!

We travel through Murphy NC on our way to visit our kids in Bryson City NC. If we are lucky enough to be passing through during Herb's Open hours, it is a must stop for us! On our most recent trip we were passing by at lunch time on Thursday, December 17, 2015 and noticed cars in the lot and... More

Had dinner here the other night. Great salad bar and the Prime Rib was wonderful. I have eaten here many times and it is always good. For being in the middle of no where this place stays packed and rightfully so.

They have a great salad bar, & I also got the pulled pork sandwich. We had a big group and everybody... More

I live 2 hours away near Knoxville Tennessee and drive here just to eat often. The service is always great, food is awesome and the sauce rocks. Also you have to ask for it but they do sell the sauce to take back home. I love it on scrambled eggs...

I was dying for some NC barbecue and this spot was recommended by a local. Some things were pretty good like hush puppies, kielbasa, chicken and fried okra. My brother and I shared the mixed feast and it was a good portion. However, the brisket, pork and ribs and especially the chopped pork were only OK. Service was fantastic.
