Yum! Best place to eat in Elizabethton

This tiny little stop is a frequent lunch spot for our family! We absolutely LOVE the food. It's affordable and delicious! If you haven't tried it, you need to! It is a very small place but the flavors are big!

I love holes in the wall. That's where, in my opinion, the best food is 99.9% of the time. This hole in the wall is no exception. The atmosphere is awesome and seems very authentic - as well as the food. Must try the ginger chicken...it is one of the most amazing things I've ever eaten! One disappointing thing is... More

Her staff is always very friendly and provides great customer service. If she has the pork chop dinner it is phenominal but you can never go wrong with her kickin... More

To start off , we walked to the door to see a sign that said cash and checks only. Had to walk to the end of the street to get money for dinner. When we got back to the restaurant there was 2 open tables and two tables against the opposite wall that you had to sit side by side.... More

This little local restaurant is a "must" if you like spicy food. We recently had lunch here after returning several times when we are in the area. The space is small with maybe six tables and a counter with some stools. Very noisy when crowded but worth it !My selection came out in a hot cast iron bowl set in... More

Tried this place based on positive reviews here on TA. The picture is not of the restaurant. It is located in downtown Elizabethton in what was most likely a clothing shop at one time. The place is TINY. Maybe room for 20 or so diners. Menu is different, but lots to choose from. I had the spicy noodle soup -... More
