Kristin Howell and her staff serve up delicious food and treat you like family. One of the best places to eat in West Jefferson.

Amazing food and great prices. Kristen, the owner, has grown such a great place to either gather with family or friends or maybe you just want to pick up dinner to take home. You can really tell her heart is in this restaurant. The food is amazing. I love the "messed up wings" basket. Best wings I've ever had!! You... More

So excited that they are open again. Had dinner tonight and it was great. My 84 year old father had the "big burger", and said that it was the best he had ever had. My mother had the pulled pork sandwich and ate every bite. This is very unusual for her. I had the mushroom Swiss burger with the hot... More

After a failed attempt at another establishment for breakfast. We decided to eat here! So glad we did! Great choices on the menu. Our food came out perfect! Good company, good service! Nice little place to eat! I'll have to come back and try the BBQ next time! :)

The best hamburger in Ashe County. The barbecue is fantastic. Food is cooked to order not premade and thrown at the tables. Breakfast lunch and dinner. Price is right for the quality of food. I will be heading back soon.

I feel like we can't properly rate this place based on not trying what we came for: ribs. They come highly recommended and they were out of them due to the holiday. Their wings and hush puppies were very good as were the hot chips. The burnt ends were charred and dry and the flounder was very plain, not much... More

Review long overdue. We had lunch during visit in July. They were out of fries so we had hot chips instead. They were great. We enjoyed the pulled pork and wings too. One of our group is vegan so she had limited choices on menu but she enjoyed small salad and chips. Service was friendly and fast. Will return when... More

I don't get it. The BBQ meat was room temp. The "red slaw" was not to be ordered again. The meat had almost no flavor. One waitress looked like she lost her puppy and another waitress acted like we were bothersome. The owner kept bragging about how they were number one in the land and how all their food was... More
