recs for Hwy 421 Boone - Winston?
Visiting Boone and Appalachian State U. Open House this Saturday with the elder chowpup. Will have campus grub for a light lunch, then head thru Winston as we return to the Triangle. What's good on or within 5 miles or so of Hwy 421? Not looking for fine dining, just a place to sit and rest and refuel our sweaty, tired, casually dressed bodies.
In Lewisville, there's a good Italian restaurant called Cicciones. It's only a couple of miles from 421, right off of Shallowford Rd in the Lowe's Foods shopping center. It's casual and family-oriented.
I'm an App alumna and made the haul from Boone to the Triangle many times, though I rarely ate along the way. One fondly bad experience was at the Chinese restaurant next to the Texaco along Wilkesboro's 421 drag. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.
Hope you have a great time, and if you scrap plans for a "light" lunch, stop by Dan'l Boone Inn and stuff yourself silly on fried chicken.
I was in Boone this past weekend and I had great Mexican food at a restaurant named Los Arcoiris in a shopping center off Hwy 321/221.
