If you want to understand how excellent local NC food tastes come to the Red Rocker. Great seasonal menue, local fare and local preparation. Modest but well represented wine list. Warm hospitality from all the staff. Beautiful downtown Black Mountain setting.

Hi Susan, thanks for a lovely review! Yes that pork roulade was very good. It was a special but I'll try to talk the chef into serving it again. Save room for dessert next time you're here!
