The kind of meal your momma would prepare. At a price you can live with and the desserts are to die for as well. It's right in the heart of town and very convenient.

We took a group of 16 Senior Adults for lunch today and everyone loved their food. Lots of clean plates. Good service, too. Their pies are wonderful.

I've been going here several years when visiting family. Always top notch food, great home style country cooking. Typically easy to get in, good service, affordable. A great go-to in a town with very few options.

Just had a spaghetti and meat sauce this evening and it was wonderful as well as being plentiful. I am told the chicken stir fry that my sister had was equally delicious. The only problem we all had was there was more than enough and...More

We like to ride the Blue Ridge Parkway on our motorcycle and our typical turn around spot is Sparta. We have eaten at the same place several times and the food is okay but nothing special. However, I saw a billboard for Brown's just outside...More

I don't think they have a website. 336.372.3400. It's an extremely popular local eatery in Sparta, North Carolina. Great biscuits and gravy, great homemade pies. Lots of good food for about 1/2 of what you pay in big cities. Owners are onsite and chat you up. Very casual atmosphere. We ate there twice this week, for breakfast and dinner. They are near the Crooked Road Music Trail where pickers come to play mountain music. I think tourists should know about this great spot.
