My husband ordered a burger and fries, and they were as close to perfect as you can get (although rather juicy and messy!) I had the ahi tuna salad, with the tuna seared outside and tender and pink inside. The salad contained spinach, shredded carrots,...More

We stopped here on a whim after seeing a line outside the night before. We figured if people were willing to wait it was worth it. The prices were extremely reasonable and the portions were very generous! They are known for their burgers and they...More

We really enjoyed our meal and the lively environment last night. A local Bluegrass group plays at the Trailhead on Thursday nights and it was very good and not too loud -so we enjoyed both the music and the conversation at the table. We are...More

On our last day in Black Mountain we wanted to get some comfort food. Trailhead didn't disappoint. My wife and I both had the Standard. The burgers had a great flavor. Will definitely visit again.
