When you’re visiting the Land of Waterfalls, you have to know where to eat! The beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains is even better with a burger and a beer. Stop into these local favorites from breakfast to dinner!
1. Farm Taqueria
Farm Taqueria is known for having the best Mexican food around. Everything is fresh and made to order with that homemade feel all guests will appreciate. The menu is simple, and the ambiance is comforting, making you want to stay and keep ordering.
2. Crank Coffee
There’s no better place to get your morning dose of caffeine than Crank Coffee. Prices are reasonable, and you’ll love the classic coffee shop feel of this little setup. If you don’t want to leave, take a bag of their coffee with you for your travels!
3. Smoke on BBQ
Stake your flag in the great barbecue wars at this Carolina-style joint. It’s everything you love about southern barbecue with some fun twists and new spices aside long-standing classics. This is one of the most popular spots around, bar none.
4. UpCountry Brewing Co
Here’s where you want to sit down and have a beer after a long day. This is a fun, dog-friendly spot with plenty of rotating taps (and pups). All the classic games and quirks of a brewery are here, so know you’re in for a treat. Note that UpCountry does not currently offer food.
5. Pho Noodle Bar
This is a crowd favorite for anyone who appreciates good pho (or any Vietnamese or Korean dish). While they specialize in pho, there’s a delightful menu filled with favorites like banh mi and bulgogi. Stop in for lunch, order a Thai tea with your meal, and thank us later
6. Jordan Street Café
If you want a classic and straightforward American-style spot, look no further than the Jordan Street Café. Offering traditional American fares at fair prices, this is a spot you have to try at least once. If you’ve never partaken in shrimp and grits, Jordan Street offers you a chance to try it out.
7. Noblebräu Brewing
If you want a brewery with a food menu, Noblebräu has you covered. Maybe you stop by just Noblebräu; maybe you take in both Brevard breweries on this list. Considering they’re right next to each other, there’s a compelling case to be made. The on-tap list is short but quite diverse.
8. Papa L.E.W.
Pape L.E.W. is the new kid on the block at just about a year old but has already made a name for itself. They pride themselves on the best wings in town, and, well, the results speak for themselves.
If you’re visiting this piece of North Carolina, you won’t be disappointed. This small but mighty county punches well out of its weight class with these well-loved local spots.
