I almost didn't see this place, because it's tucked in a corner of a small shopping center, right at the intersection where you turn to drive up to Beech Mountain. I happened to notice the sign in passing and made a note to check it...More

Our rating is actually more of a 3 star experience but we appreciated the interesting offerings and it's a good addition to the Banner Elk restaurant scene. The tacos were very good. Black bean soup was OK but too bland- needed more cilantro also, blend...More
