Bryson City


High Test Deli


One of the best Sandwich shops in the country... But don't just take our word for it, take the word of dozens of magazines/newspapers/food critics that name The High Test Deli the #1 sandwich shop in North Carolina.

Favorite Sandwich: The Cuban!


Everett Street Diner

Breakfast, Lunch

Man, oh man. The best breakfast in Bryson City. There is a reason why you'll see people lined out the door in the middle of a snowstorm to get a table here!

Favorite Dish: Fruit, Granola, & Yogurt Bowl


River's End Restaurant

Lunch, Dinner

This restaurant may be a little sentimental to our team, mainly because this is where Isaac and Hannah went on their first date. Casual dining over the Nantahala River (come on the weekends for live music and a great atmosphere!)

Favorite Dish: Chicken Fried Chicken



Lunch, Dinner

Every town has their Italian restaurant they're proud of - ours is no different. Pasqualino's is a delicious local Italian-flare in the heart of downtown. Friendly service, you're sure to see the owner, Pasqual, sitting on the bench right outside the front door.

Favorite Dish: Blackened Chicken Alfredo


The Rice Wagon

Lunch, Dinner

The best food truck you will ever eat. Hawaiian BBQ! One of the most unique menus you will see in the area - every entrée comes with a scoop of macaroni salad and white rice.

Favorite Dishes: Ahi Tuna & Garlic Chicken


Jimmy Mac's

A local favorite - one of the most extensive burger menu's you will ever see! This family-owned business is a staple to the town, and one that our tourists love coming back to year after year.

Favorite Dish: Bleu Max Burger (Bacon & Bleu Cheese)


4 Queens Mexican Restaurant

Lunch, Dinner

A fantastic tex-mex restaurant in Bryson City - though they are new on the scene, 4 Queens has certainly taken our little town by storm as the best Mexican Restaurant in the area. During warmer months, be sure to request seating over the river! Incredible service as well!

Favorite Dishes: Chips w/ Bean Dip & 'ACP'

A delicious breakfast, one of our favorites in town! Delicious french toast, and their apple pancakes are sure to hit the spot!

For dinner, the Fryemont is home to some of the best local meals in the South. A four-course meal (for an incredible price) will include their soup of the day, a small salad, entrée of your choice, three family-style sides, and choice of dessert.
