We stopped in for lunch. Nice covered patio to eat outside. We both had the 1/3 lb burger. They have a burger bar with lots of toppings to choose from. The burgers were very good.

Our favorite Smoky Mountain lunch spot. Great hamburgers complete with a condiment bar. Wedge type fries are great. Try to save some room for the fried apple pie.
