Went out to find collards and peas on New Years Day and most restaurants were closed in the NC Mtns. We drove into Bakersville and asked a local if he might recommend a place and he directed us to Helens. What a great place! Collards were amazing! So was the cornbread (about 2 inches thick, hot and tasty). Homemade pies, cakes and friendly, prompt service. If youre in the area yo must check out this place.
