Wow. Just wanted to start off with that. Wow.
I'll start off here - I'm a bit of a foodie. My brother, who was joining me on a road trip when we stopped here, is not so much. We both enjoy food, but I tend towards quirkier, more out-there joints. That said, I learned on this trip that he has an amazing sense of where to stop for food.
We almost passed by here while walking around the beautiful town of Black Mountain, looking for a place to eat. My brother stopped us here, and we walked in. Seated quickly, given a menu quickly, and had our order taken quickly. Excellent assortment of local beers - I had the Bison Organic Honey Basil Ale, which was great - and the food blew my mind.
My brother went with a more traditional fish-and-chips meal, which I tried (delicious). I went a bit out of my zone - got a fried chicken dish, which on its own isn't too off-beat, but the sides (corn pudding and sauteed kale) made this dish one of my favorites from our trip. So many flavors that I hadn't tried before, and it all went so well with the juicy chicken (which had the best skin I've had on a piece of fried chicken).
Highly, highly recommend - both a stay in this town, and a stop at this restaurant.
