We don't live far from here, but we love stopping for the old fashioned milkshakes or a cheeseburger after a day spent hiking on nearby Roan Mountain. This place is also close to the Appalachian trail crossing.

Bob's never disappoints. Stopped in for some breakfast on our way up to Carver's Gap for a little hike on the Appalachian Trail. I recommend the French toast.

I decided to stop and get my dad some Tennessee BBQ and it was fantastic. Legitimately some of the best I've ever had. I got a burger and it was great too. Their debit/credit card machine wasn't working but I went to the bank down to road for cash. It certainly isn't fancy, but the food is reasonably priced and... More

Thank you for the kind words about our barbecue. I'm very proud of it, since we smoke it and prepare the sauces here. Actually, I make every drop of the sauce myself. And sorry about the card machine, We did get it working a little later that evening. Joe M. More

Thank you for the nice comments on our food and service, we really appreciate hearing good things! Yep, when you have a sixty year old exhaust that was never designed for the level of business we have today, it can get smokey. More

The food here is fairly good however if you dine inside you need to go home and take a shower and wash your hair; otherwise you will smell like greasy food. It's been this way for a few years. The only time I go there is when nothing else is open.

This place has been around as long as I can remember, a very long time, and looked forward to stopping as I go through, but stopped in this time and after jarring my brains out on the rough parking lot, the milkshake I ordered came out the window with messiness all over it from food that was on the servers...

Phyllis, thank you for stopping by. The parking lot is a little rough, the gentleman that maintains it for us is overdue. Sorry about that! I'm also sorry about the cup not being wiped before it was handed to you and I will address that with the cashier. As for your comments on the cleanliness, I'm not sure how much... More

Was recommended by state park staff as a place to go for ice cream and to eat as well. They carry about 8 flavors of ice cream - no vanilla! - and have a soft-serve machine that they mix in syrups and machine-stir to give you the other 30+ flavors that they advertise. The servings are ample, but the ambiance... More

Thank you for stopping in. And no, we don't keep vanilla hard dip ice cream. With soft-serve, and all the flavor options, it is just a very slow seller. And yes, we do a large amount of fried foods in out kitchen. It is time for our annual Fall paint job. As for the wait, we prepare everything from scratch... More
