Always a treat! We come every year for our Christmas tree at Christmas corner across the street and eat here beforehand. It is a family tradition of over 21 years now. The pizza is so good and the staff is always friendly.

Wonderful little restaurant located between Linville caverns and Boone North Carolina. Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountain region, this little place offers at all. Great food, great service and polite staff. Reasonable prices!
