If you travel Hwy 441 through Cherokee on the Cherokee to Gatlinburg route, you can safely pull into Newfound Lodge Restaurant. This restaurant has a previousl life as a Big Boy restaurant and essentially serves the same type buffet. It serves southern comfort food and some Cherokee favorites as well thrown in. If you were raised on traditional southern food, you should have no problem picking out fried chicken, pork chops or bbq. Vegetables tend to be carrots and peas, mashed potatoes, fried okra and more. The salad bar contained enough choices for a vegatarian lunch companion to be satisfied. Total price for the buffet and a tea is about $12, not cheap, but at least it is good. Salad bar alone is much less. A lot of local people eat here which is a good sign of quality. If you need a meal near the Museum of the Cherokee Indian, Qualla Arts and Crafts or the night time drama "Unto these Hills," this is probably your best bet.
