We got the buffet. The food was all over the place, dried out fried chicken and green beans were so salty, you couldn't eat them. I don't know what their health score is but we will never eat there again. Maybe the food you order...More

Back in the 80s, there was a steakhouse in Murphy NC called The Sirloin where everyone in Cherokee County ate. Fast forward to 2017 when my best friend and I ran across this place in Blue Ridge! I walked in and it was like walking...More

I must admit, I REALLY enjoy coming here to eat. It reminds me of old chain steakhouses like Western Sizzlin, which it resembles and might have once been. There is absolutely nothing fancy here. It is paneled in the 70s style, poorly-lit, with a gloomy...More
