My husband and I waited almost an hour for our food and the place wasn't busy. I ordered the barbeque; the menu said it was spicy. I thought it would be interesting to try it as I enjoy moderately spicy food. When it finally came, it was so spicy it was inedible for me; it burned my mouth. Quite disappointed, but the ambiance was okay.

Can't say my wife or I enjoyed our meals. I had the salmon which was swimming in BBQ sauce and my wife had the chicken which was like leather. Good location and we've heard good things about the food but we must have picked an off night.

The food is not bad, and you can tell that it is fresh, but the service stinks and you have to wait forever for your meal...and by forever, I mean, plan on being there for at least 2 hours...

In a small town like this before Soul Mountain Cafe, the most exotic thing we had was Taco Bell. Gary's menu boasts a wonderful selection of incredibly aromatic dishes from wraps and salads to steaks and seafood. You may not be able to drink alcoholic beverages here but the food alone is totally worth it.

Just came back from trail riding in the Shenandoah Valley and we treated ourselves to lunch in Front Royal. And what a treat is was...pulled pork sandwiches with Chef Gary's unique barbecue sauce, black bean burgers, curried chicken wraps with mango and those corn bread muffins all so delicious. The staff were so friendly and we had a chance to speak to the Chef about his creations. He says he cooks from the heart and it certainly tastes that way.
