“Where was the arches when you needed them.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

We were camping in the area and decided to eat out instead of cooking. We like to pick off beat places because we often find a gem but this place was not one our successes. We drove up and down route 220 and found this place tucked away on a narrow side street.

The atmosphere is typical luncheonette - not unexpected. Parking was tough to come by, we went in and asked where to park and was told to park along the building.

I had the hamburger which was your typical supermarket frozen variety - I hate fast food places but I find their burgers better than the one I had here. My wife had the shredded pork sandwich which she swears came right out of a can. They need to take a step up and buy fresh made burgers and BBQ shredded pork at the local market as a starter.

The other reviews I read were right - this place is a welcome relief from the prices charged at the nearby resort but I guess they don't understand that you get what you pay for.

The staff was friendly but our waitress gave us the wrong bill which she quickly fixed and apologized - not a big deal.

“Down-home food at a good price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

After being awed by the prices at the Homestead, finding this little gem was like a breath of fresh air. Had the barbeque sandwich with cole slaw and fries. Barbeque was very moist and tasty, cole slaw very good, fries were not quite the way I liked them, but my colleagues did. Definitely a place to check out -- your wallet and your stomach will thank you!

“Inexpensive alternative to the pricey outlets of the Homestead”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Nothing to write home about, but super friendly wait staff and very inexpensive alternative to the ultra expensive restaurants with in the Homestead itself.

“A hole in the wall but will fill the hole in your tummy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

We went here as a change of pace meal after eating the fancy fixins at the Homestead for multiple meals, and found it to be a charming, friendly joint that one would expect to find in the mountains of Southwest Virginia. The food was really good, and the staff very friendly. If we came back, we'd definitely stop in again. The perfect place when you've just had enough luxury from the resort. Unless you have a phobia of Elvis, that is. Then by all means stay away from here.
