Stopped here for lunch with friends on a trip to the NC mountains. Menu offered lots of options and service was fast and friendly. If you are in the area be sure to stop in.

My husband was wanting home cooked food, so I found Abele's through Trip Advisor. I'm really glad we gave it a try. We both had the full bar and hamburger steak. Everything was delicious. The service was ok, but they were very busy. We will definitely be back & recommend to others.

If you like home style cooking and a lot of food, then, this is the place for you. I have tired their barbecue ribs and they are superb. The sandwiches are big and tasty. A great place to feed the family for a good price!
