Great Burgers and Fries!

We use this restaurant for our late lunch stop before descending to sea level, from over 5,000 feet near Mount Mitchell (highest point east of the Mississippi River, 6,683 feet), at Blowing Rock after one more stop at Price Lake. Earlier on our trip (from Charlotte, NC) we make memorable stops in Lake Lure (featured in Dirty Dancing  starring the late Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Gray, then picturesque Chimney Rock, and Bat Cave (my favorite) before hoping on the parkway in Asheville.
We arrived a little off schedule at 1:50 PM to a crowd waiting to be seated; and were told that our wait would be about 20 minutes. We considered trying our luck elsewhere but decided to keep our pace in line here as opposed to taking a chance back down the road. Once inside we ushered through the packed dining room to the deck which was unusually cold with a wind chill. It was in the upper 50's, I was told, which is cold to this Florida boy and my guests all agreed that a coat with hood or skull cap was needed to shield us from the frigid temperature.
