The restaurant is part of a working gas station, but don't let that inhibit you. The food is excellent and unique. Most everything has a twist. Moreover the portions are generous. I always finish and couldn't here. If the chef has specials not on the menu that he's experimenting with, get them!

We have been going to this gas station/restaurant since 2007. It never fails, fabulous food, friendly staff. If your lucky, you'll get a glimpse of the Chef, himself! The Bloody Mary is to die for & can feed two!

Most people don't intentionally venture out to Watauga, but it's pretty awesome that there's a restaurant featured by the Food Network here! Yes, it is indeed in a gas station, but you should definitely check it out. It's not what you are envisioning. There's a neat story behind the restaurant. You will NOT leave hungry that is for sure.

On family vacation from Florida to visit family and really wanted to eat and experience this gas station / restaurant! Very interesting story behind it. I had the blackened stuffed chicken and angel hair pasta which was amazing with the asiago cheese!

This place was recommended to us. My wife and I came in today and the food and service was really good. We'll be back when the weather has cooled down. Maybe in the fall, so we can sit on their outside patio.

I know that this restaurant was featured on the ever popular Diners Drive-in and Dives but it is SO over rated and over priced.

Had an exceptional dinner with co-workers in this unique, restaurant! Delicious Shrimp Pasta with spinach, pine nuts, and a delicate garlic sauce. Devine! Others had the Bloody Best - a double bloody mary with a meal as the garnish. You must see it to believe it! Lobster Bisque in a bread bowl. Exquisite. Chicken pesto pasta - and the list... More
