We frequent the stores in both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge (at the Island) because of their gluten-free pizza. My wife has celiac disease and this offers a chance to eat "normal" vacation food with the rest of the family. Good food, good service, and a solid choice for dinner during vacation

We road through on the bike. The stops where plenty the view was breath taking and the time spent at each stop was never enough. The people you meet along the way pleasant good conversations with wonderful people. Will return next year and the years to come.
