Boone/W. Jefferson must eat or must do (Oct 14-19th)
- humanfactors Oct 8, 2012 12:27 PM
The wife and I will be up in W. Jefferson for a nice getaway Oct 14th-19th. While we enjoy cooking in the rental cabin we would like to know if there are some great places to eat in the area (including near Boone). We are not looking for anything upscale as she works in an upscale steakhouse in Raleigh. Just some good local pub food, Mexican, or maybe even Chinese food. Any recommendations?
Also, are there any good events going on that week or fun things to do? Hiking gets a bit old after a while ;-)
Thanks in advance!
The factory at Ashe County Cheese will be in action Oct 15 so that may be a good day to visit the factory & store. http://www.ashecountycheese.com/sched...

If you like hard apple cider McRitchie Winery & Cider Works is about 45 miles away. http://www.mcritchiewine.com/

Just know that the Surry County Diner was a home run for us recently. It may work on the way out or the way back. $10.00 Prime Rib Friday night. (Maybe Saturday too?).
