I almost hate to write this review because it will mean this place might be more crowded the next time I go, but this is simply the best place to eat in all of Lake Lure, Chimney Rock area. It's a very small place, but the food is like you'd find in a major city or hotel. Their soups are amazing, the sandwiches are hearty, the cinnamon rolls are too good to describe and the service is outstanding. This has become a favorite "date spot" for me and my wife, but the kids love it too. Every time we stay at our house in Lake Lure, we plan a trip to Medina's. Absolutely don't miss it.

Was recommended to this place by a local. An amazing atmosphere with fresh and delicious homemade food. From the fresh delicate flowers on the table and fresh salad with homemade cruotons to the main course, this place was incredible! And need I say anything about their amazing cinnamon rolls....scrumptious!

When we are in town, We never fail to stop by Medinas. They have the best cinnamon rolls I've ever eaten, along with great value and service. Can't be beat!

We read about Medina's on trip advisor and decided to try it as we were from out of town and wanted to try a local restaurant. We were very impressed with the wait staff and food. Food was made to order and delicious. We topped our meal off with one of their cinnamon rolls which was a great ending to a very enjoyable meal. Would highly recommend!

So I'm sitting in a small diner that the locals frequent for good reason. I prefer my dining dollars to go to good quality fare an not a lot of pomp or franchise fees. The heck with the national chains go to Medina's and enjoy Chef John creations. The specials change daily and the staff is friendly and accommodating. The owners are full time and the food is delicious, from the red pepper with smoked Gouda soup to the healthy salads and satisfying entres. They even have a children's menu. And don't miss the hand created cinnamon rolls, they were flying off the pan when I was there.
