The food is wonderful and flavorful. Set apart from the usual country cooking in Pigeon Forge, this place offers a refreshing different culinary experience. Think outside the box and try something different, you might be pleasantly surprised. We had empanadas, steak, and fried pork chunks....More

They prep bread offsite and then finish it off on site, due to size of facility. It was fabulous!
