What a jem found in this little store. With all of the traffic running past to the Apple Orchards, your missing the best Deli. All homemade and fabulous. We had chicken salad, ham and other sandwiches and they all were to die for. Great friendly owners going out of their way to assist.

One tip: This is a perfect place to stop and get your sandwiches and spreads to take as picnic to the nearby wineries.

When we were in Ellijay, Ryals (the owner) went above and beyond in customer service. On the very day of the solar eclipse he went out of his way to find us two pairs of the eclipse glasses. We didn't eat at the restaurant because we didn't realize there was a restaurant in the store but my husband bought some homemade peanut brittle that was delicious. We later spoke with several people that had eaten at the restaurant and they all told us the food was amazing. When we go back to Ellijay in December we will definitely be eating there.

Stopped in to Crossroads for a biscuit Saturday morning, I didn't know what awaited me. These are more than biscuits, they were like fluffy, yummy pillows to hold my ham and sausage. best homemade biscuits around. Ill definitely be back next week.

Riles has cornered a specific market no one else has in the region. He has high quality meats, dairy deli items. Farm to table breakfast and lunch foods. Plus pizza and burgers etc and the best smoked salmon dip I've ever head. Ice cream. Home made deserts. In a historic little white general store with the original pumps. Any day you go there. You will be sitting with local farmers and workers in overalls and work clothes, having their breakfast and lunch or just relaxing and chatting with neighbors. A must visit

We ate lunch here while on vacation in Ellijay. The food was absolutely amazing and the service was excellent. Our three kids are picky eaters and they loved their cheeseburger, bbq sandwich and fried chicken sandwich. The philly cheesesteak was one of the best I've ever had and my wife also loved her ham and cheese sandwich. We also got some great tips on where to go hiking from whom I believe was the owner. Very friendly staff and customers. Can't wait to be back in the area so we can eat here again.
